Learning outcomes

PROGRAM OUTLINE SESSION 1: Friday 10 – Sunday 12 May 2024 Friday & Saturday 8:30am - 5pm, Sunday 8:30am - 3pm Get Started Start at the beginning. Session 1 provides a solid foundation to strengthen your knowledge and skills in diagnosis, case selection and treatment planning. Receive innovative strategies for a comprehensive record examination and cephalometric analysis, to assist in making informed treatment decisions. Explore vital orthodontic elements, including the effects of orthodontic treatment on facial aesthetics, the importance of balance, and gain further insight to the basics of craniofacial growth and development. Experience an opportunity to place bands and brackets on the orthodontic typodont, and improve your knowledge and skills of banding and bonding. Witness demonstrations of initial wire placement and ligation techniques all within a clinical setting. Hands-on Exercises: • Cephalometric analysis • Bonding (bracket placement exercise) • Mechanics (wire placement and technique) SESSION 2: Friday 19 – Sunday 21 July 2024 Friday & Saturday 8:30am - 5pm, Sunday 8:30am - 3pm Class I Survey & Biomechanics Continue to develop your orthodontic skills and address the complexities of timing issues: when to treat and when not to treat and Class II diagnosis and treatment. Explore into Phase 1, interceptive treatment modalities and arch development techniques. Discover strategies for Class I crowded cases and the benefits for using expansion mechanics/appliances. Demonstrate new techniques in the workshop, and begin a detailed study of basic orthodontic biomechanics through directly applying what is discussed. Learn directly from demonstrated techniques of intrusion, advancing archwire fabrication and ligation placement. Hands-on exercises: • Advancing utility arches • Intrusion utility arches (fabrication & adjustments) • Molar uprighting springs (mechanics) SESSION 3: Friday 6 – Sunday 8 September 2024 Friday & Saturday 8:30am - 5pm, Sunday 8:30am - 3pm Class II and Class III Survey Extractions Advance into Session 2 and further address Class II and Class III considerations and treatment modalities, exploring both orthopaedic and orthodontic movements. Manage the complexities of the Class II correction in mixed and permanent dentition. Discover innovative molar distalising techniques through both fixed and removable treatments. Gain an advanced understanding to better select the most effective archwire, sequencing strategy, and elastic wear and set-up. In addition, expand your knowledge of adjunctive intrusion techniques, with particular attention to second and third-order bends (tipping and torque). Hands-on exercises: • Torquing arches • Second-order bends • Cervical headgear placement and adjustment • Various Class II correctors and their adjustment SESSION 4: Friday 8 – Sunday 10 November 2024 Friday & Saturday 8:30am - 5pm, Sunday 8:30am - 3pm Class II and Class III Survey Extractions Extraction Mechanics, Finishing, Detailing and Aesthetic Considerations Finish with finesse. Complete both this course and your orthodontic cases with finishing and detail. Better understand extraction mechanics and debanding, with precise timing. Learn how the use elastics and segmented arches contribute to finishing, intraoral adjustments, and also assist in troubleshooting difficult cases. Appreciate all aesthetic considerations, and other special considerations for ortho-prosthodontic cases. Also finish with a review of preferred retainer design placement of fixed retainers and follow-up adjustments. Hands-on exercises: • Artistic bends • Finishing and detailing techniques • Finishing elastics • Retainer adjustments • Multiple finishing techniques demonstrated
