Retention is the phase of orthodontic treatment that attempts to keep teeth in the corrected positions after orthodontic treatment. Without a phase of retention, there is a tendency for teeth to return to their initial position (relapse).
To prevent relapse, almost every person who has orthodontic treatment will require some type of retention. But what is the best retention? Fixed or removable? Is there a recipe that will guarantee that teeth will not move and that our patients will remain stable for the rest of their life?
This course will give you the answer and will keep you up to date on the most recent scientific facts about retention in orthodontics.

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 !
