Workshops

Workshop I Manufacturing direct print aligners

Marc Koehler (11:00 Friday 4. 10.)
Abstract: In this workshop, the processing of Graphy’s TC-85 material for direct print aligners is explained and described in detail. It is shown how the material is printed in a 3D printer and how the further processing, which differs from normal resin, works. Furthermore, the required hardware is also shown and the complete process is shown and explained. Due to the limited time, this workshop is not a Graphy certification course, but will help to understand how direct print aligners can be manufactured and how this process differs from thermoformed aligners.

Workshop II BASICS of working with a 3D model, preparation and printing

Ing. Jakub Podlucky (11:00 Friday 4. 10.)
Abstract: The workshop is intended for beginners in the field of 3D printing of models and production of foil braces directly in the doctor’s office. The participant will learn about the workflow of loading and segmenting 3D images from the scanner and working in the software for the design of orthodontic treatment. Subsequently, as part of the demonstration, the model will be prepared for printing and its realization incl. subsequent processing. The participant will therefore get a comprehensive idea of the entire process of creating their own foil braces. Concrete situations and their solutions will also be presented.

Workshop III Combining clear aligner technique and auxiliaries

Dr. Alessandro Mario Greco (14:00 Friday 4. 10.) – the capacity is currently full and the registration is not available anymore.
Abstract: The use of aligners allows to simplify some common biomechanics but on the opposite side there
are some limitations that commonly requires the combination of auxiliary technique in order to
increase movement predictability. One of the most common situation can be represented by the
combination of auxiliaries for extraction space closure, impacted teeth, TADs hybrid
combination, molar mesialization. A schematic approach of the most common clinical conditions
will be described with proper material in order to widen the use of aligners in any kind of
malocclusion.

Workshop IV Ormco Spark

Dr. Inês Silva (16:00 Friday 4. 10.)
Abstract: We will explore the new updates with Spark Approver and emphasis would also be laid on the collaborative approach of Spark Approver Software with CBCT and ORMCO Digital Bonding, as integral components in shaping the future of orthodontic practices. We will explore the innovative features, seamless integrations, and future plans.

Workshop V The CADCAM Workflow in Orthodontics

Dr. Seung-Woo Yoo (16:00 Friday 4. 10.)
Abstract: Digital technology in orthodontics enabled huge possibilities from laboratory work to orthodontic treatment methods. The CADCAM workflow in orthodontics makes it possible, to achieve fully customized appliances which meet the patient’s individual needs. For the CADCAM workflow an orthodontic software like OnyxCeph™ is needed. Furthermore, with an additional CAD software like Fusion 360 the limits of purely orthodontic software can be overcome and extends the possibility of digital orthodontics.
In this workshop the CADCAM workflow with OnyxCeph™ and Fusion 360 will be explained by some orthodontic appliances like RME, Herbst, MARA etc.

Workshop VI Fueling Invisalign Smile ArchitectTM experience: innovative solutions for interdisciplinary ortho-restorative treatment planning

Dr. Camilla Molinari (11:00 Saturday 5. 10.)
Abstract: Modern dentistry is increasingly focused on a minimally invasive approach. We must always carefully evaluate the biological impact of the therapies we perform on our patients.
As techniques, technologies and materials evolve, we may be able to offer therapeutic solutions that respect the aesthetic, functional and structural integrity of the elements, starting from a good diagnosis.
So-called face-driven planning takes into account skeletal and morphological features in determining a proper orthodontic/prosthetic treatment plan that is in harmony with the patient’s facial features.
This assessment is all the more important in all those clinical cases with dento-dental and/or dento-basal discrepancies or in situations where we have to deal with shape and/ or size abnormalities (very frequent in maxillary lateral incisors).
Invisalign Smile ArchitectTM is an innovative ortho-restorative treatment planning software.
This program enables dental teams to integrate clear aligner therapy into their multidisciplinary treatment plans, combining alignment teeth and prosthetic planning in a ‘single platform.
This new software is aimed at facilitating communication among colleagues in the dental team, as well as with laboratories, from an interdisciplinary treatment perspective.
During this lectur we will understand in detail the diagnostic-therapeutic potential of this feature in intedisciplinary treatments… and beyond!

Workshop VIII Benefits of the Align Digital Platform and iTero intraoral scanners in orthodontic practice

Matej Jendrichovsky (14:00 Saturday 5. 10.)
Abstract: During this practical workshop we will introduce the myiTero.com and Align™ Digital Platform (ADP) and its benefits for achieving excellent clinical results, improving practice workflow efficiency, as well as elevated patient experience. We will introduce the latest, groundbreaking Multi-direct Capture™ technology, discuss digital workflows of iTero intraoral scanners and the ADP, with all the possibilities these tools open towards patient education and driving patient compliance. A demonstration of useful tools like the Align™ Oral Health Suite, Invisalign® Outcome Simulator and Invisalign® Outcome Simulator Pro, iTero™ Occlusogram, iTero™ Time Lapse will follow, as well as showcasing the potential of iTero™ Near Infra-Red Technology in everyday orthodontic practice.
Attendees will have a hands-on opportunity to experience scanning protocols for the iTero™ intraoral scanners as well as the proprietary software applications.
