Description

Understanding the health benefits of proper occlusion and how orthodontic care plays a role is a message best delivered by both hygienist and doctor. This course reviews how to identify, discuss and provide patients with orthodontic solutions for malocclusion utilizing Clear Aligner Therapy. Attendees will learn talking points and examples of conversation starters to assist in effectively communicating the importance of preventing subsequent consequences malocclusion may impose; occlusal trauma,wear,abfractions, incipient decay and periodontal disease. This is crucial for patient engagement in the belief that clear aligner therapy is a viable treatment option for sustained oral health, not just aesthetics.
