I want to become a leader in clear aligner treatments

Here are some frequently asked questions:

At The CLEAR Institute, we offer customized courses that address the specific needs of each individual practitioner. If you want, we can work with you to identify your goals and create a personalized curriculum that helps you achieve them.
Take a look at the MOCA 201.

The CLEAR Institute is dedicated to making dentists understand and integrate clear aligners in their practice with success.
We want a community of dentists who understand clear aligner principles and orthodontic principles. This is not a place for dentists who only want to learn recipes and apply them without thinking.
This is why The CLEAR Institute makes a BIG difference
We are not related to any clear aligner companies (even if some companies like us a lot because their users do a lot more cases, since they understand much better 😊).
We do not provide education dictated by corporations, but rather by clinical experience and scientific literature.

You are here... It's already a good sign 😉
You have been using clear aligners and you probably like what you are seeing. You know it works. You know it makes a difference and you want to know more!
This is an exciting place to be! You broke the first couple of barriers that usually stop dentists from continuing their journey in integrating clear aligners in their day-to-day practice.
Don’t stop now! You are at a turning point. Where it can start making a big difference in your practice.
You want to know more. You want to understand more. You want to do more cases. You want to know why some things are not working… even though you do them like you learned to.
You need more knowledge. You want answers to your questions.
We got you covered!

That is an excellent question! For us, there is only one true guru in orthodontics: Sir Isaac Newton! His third law: "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction", explains a lot of what we see in orthodontics.
It can be confusing when we work with a virtual setup, thinking that what we see on the screen is what will happen in reality.
Even after more than 20 years using clear aligners, it is still counterintuitive sometimes to imagine that the virtual setup is a force system.
Not how the teeth will move!
Understanding mechanics is the key. Having instructors who have nothing else to sell or to share than their knowledge and experience makes all the difference.

You have done enough cases by now to know that there are no such things as a clear aligner cookbook!
Sometimes things don’t work like they are supposed to.
What do you do when things go wrong? And we are not saying “if” things go wrong. Because eventually, they will. It happens to everyone.
Those who tell you that what they do works all the time: they should talk less and do more cases 😬.
We have more than 20 years of experience with clear aligners and still, to this day, even with the experience and the knowledge we have, we see problems happening that were not planned. We don’t finish our cases after three months with only one set of aligners.
It’s normal. Don’t believe everything you hear👂!
We are glad you found us and we want to be your dedicated clear aligner education partner.We will help you take total control of your cases! Register for the Master of Clear Aligner 201 program and become a real Master of clear aligners.

Ha! That is the challenge!!! If you find out how to do it, please share it with us!
You have enough experience now to figure out that AI (artificial intelligence) helps, but can not do the "job" at our place (this is good news!!!)
Therefore, we must take the time to look at our virtual setups and transform them into treatment plans. For us, it is normal to change something on a ClinCheck. In fact, the opposite would be surprising. Understanding how to fill the prescription, how to communicate with technicians, and most importantly, how to use the 3D tools and work yourself on the virtual setup makes all the difference.
Having the right clinical preferences and a good understanding of the mechanics of how to look at a ClinCheck and see it as a force system rather than some teeth that are moving will get you more efficient and will avoid frustration when working on your virtual treatment planning. This is what we teach in our MOCA courses. This is why our dentists have so much success after completing these programs.Take a look at our MOCA 201 program ⬅.

Blog - Which scanners can you use with Invisalign?

There is not one week, one day, that I don't receive that question from a colleague:
"Which scanners are compatible with Invisalign?"
"Is it only the iTero, owned by Align, that can be used to send cases to Invisalign?"
The answer: NO! Not everyone knows it, but Align accepts case submission for its clear aligner products in two ways:
- Physical impressions of the patient's teeth using PVS and Align's own trays (provided by Align)
- Intraoral scan of the patient's teeth
Align just released on Feb 7, 2022, that they settled an outstanding litigation with 3Shape. So as of today, the list of third party intraoral scanners that can be used for Invisalign case submissions are...

Blog - How and when to use bite ramps

Bite ramps were introduced with the Invisalign® G5 protocol. Align Technology®, the makers of Invisalign clear aligners, comes up almost every year with a new protocol. They are constantly improving the product. It started with G3, then G4, G5, G6, G7, and now we’re at G8. Will the next be G-string? 😬

The G5 protocol was introduced to improve how we treat deep bite cases and improve success predictability. There were a couple of new features in that protocol, and one of them was the bite ramp.
