Impaction of cuspids is something we see in 1 to 3% of patients, as reported in the scientific literature by Bishara. This might seem small, but it is the second highest frequency behind the third molar impaction.
Treatment of impacted cuspids is difficult, particularly with clear aligners. This subject will be covered in a more advanced course, part of the MOCA 301 learning program.
Since we know it is difficult, our role as treating dentists and primary care providers is to prevent and avoid problems.
This course will cover the diagnostic and treatment planning of malpositioned cuspids. How to prevent their impaction, and once out, how to bring them into position.
Using case examples and scientific literature, always referring to his clinical experience, Dr. Stephane Reinhardt will share his knowledge on how to treat cases presenting ectopic cuspids.
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 !
