Since their introduction in the orthodontic world by Calvin Case in 1892, elastics have been used successfully to produce light continuous forces that are most effective for tooth movement.
In this course, your instructor, Dr. Stephane Reinhardt, Director of the Education Program for The C.L.E.A.R. Institute, will review the classification of elastics and share with you the possibilities they offer when combined with clear aligner treatments.
At the end of this course, you will understand how to use elastics, their composition, their classification, how to measure the force they apply, and how they can help you achieve success in your clear aligner treatments. It's one more tool (and an important one!) to master and to add in the toolbox.

THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE was born from the need expressed by dentists to have access to quality education and personalized follow-up in connection to everything related to clear aligners. Dr Stéphane Reinhardt, director of the education program for THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE explains:
"Seeing that clear aligners aroused an increasing interest among dentists, an elaborate "in person" course program was developed and delivered to the dentists and their teams, so that they could integrate clear aligners efficiently and successfully in their day to day practice".
THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE has accompanied thousands of dentists in Canada and the United States in their understanding of clear aligners, bringing them confidence that clinical success and financial success are possible aligners in a serious, efficient and successful manner. They have confidence and now understand, thanks to THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE, that clinical and financial successes are possible with transparent aligners.
The year 2021 marks an important stage in the development of THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE with the launch of an e-learning platform to facilitate access to its courses and expertise to as many dentists as possible.
As mentioned by Dr. Reinhardt, "See it to believe it. Learn it to understand it. Use it to master it! There has never been a better time to MAKE THE MOVE !
