    A new generation of lingual appliances: the lingual straightwire customized digital workflow

    The latest trend in lingual orthodontics is the digitally customized lingual straightwire appliance. This lecture will focus on a combination of straight archwire systems, which can significantly simplify the mechanics, and the advantages of the square slot passive self-ligating appliance. Full digital planning with total three-dimensional control can customize the torque design, improving the quality of treatment with a significant reduction in treatment time. Predictable outcomes can be achieved using this new lingual appliance generation.

    Aims:
    To introduce the concepts of the digitally customized lingual straightwire appliance system.

    Objectives:
    To explain the treatment planning aspects of this system and describe the different types of mechanics which can be used.

    Learning outcomes:
    Delegates will learn about the diversity of this lingual system and be able to discuss how this could be introduced to their own clinical practice.

  • TAKEMOTO Kyoto (Japan)

    Dr Kyoto Takemoto graduated in dentistry from Tokyo Dental College in 1979 and has specialised in orthodontics since 1981 at Tokyo Medical Dental University. He works exclusively in orthodontics, with a special interest in lingual orthodontics.

    The lingual straightwire (LSW) using the passive self-ligation (PSL) square slot bracket system

    Giuseppe Scuzzo and  Kyoto Takemoto

    This one-day course is designed for orthodontists who wish to start treating patients using lingual appliances, as well as those with experience who wish to further develop their skills, using the most up to date operative clinical and digital laboratory methods for the LSW.

    Delegates will acquire theory, knowledge and clinical operative methods for bonding,  re-bonding and malocclusion treatment sequences.

    They will also learn the systematic methods for extraction and non-extraction treatment using the ALIAS LSW system. The presentation and discussion of numerous clinical cases with different orthodontic problems will furnish participants with the know-how of management and application.

    Aims: To provide an overview of the lingual straightwire PSL system.

    Objectives: This course will provide an in-depth knowledge of the use of this system in different clinical situations and will illustrate this with examples from treated patients.

    Learning outcomes: Delegates will acquire an understanding of how this system works in different clinicial situations and will learn some of the specific skills required to either introduce this system into their clinical practice or, for those already using the system, to enhance their current skills.
