Digital Orthodontic Forum 2017
(18 August 2017)

On Friday 18th August 2017, the Digital Orthodontic Forum will take place for its premier edition at Suntec, Singapore, Level 3. The event will gather top key opinion leaders focusing on the latest trends and developments in Digital Orthodontics. Digital dentistry can assist us in many ways, by assessing space and measuring the amount of crowding in cases, predicting treatment outcomes, assisting patients communication but also storing digitally model’s and treatment planning. With the introduction of 3D Printing in dentistry, the opportunities in Orthodontics have expanded from digital impression taking, to developing virtual treatment plans and 3D printing of dental models. The Digital Orthodontic Forum will illustrate the necessity for Orthodontists to look into digitalizing their working ways in order to save time, money and provide more efficient and effective treatments for the patients. The Forum will end with a much anticipated ‘Digital’ vs. ‘Analog’ debate discussing opinions of the Orthodontic societies present. Delegates will also have a sneakpeak at the latest technologies at the product display area throughout the Forum as well as enjoying free entrance to the Exhibition of the main 4th AP CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry International Conference on 19-20th of August 2017.

Final Agenda to be announced soon.

  • Scientific Session Chairman & Program Advisor
  • Lecture: Utilizing digital impression to improve treatment planning and patient communication
    Making the switch and going digital – Dr Geraldine Lee shares her experience in exploring digital orthodontics. She will discuss how implementing a digital orthodontic workflow in her practice has enhanced treatment planning, patient communication, as well as patient experience, and improved efficiency for her practice. Digital treatment planning and simulation allows orthodontists to try out different treatment options with accuracy and predictability, and allows patients to visualize their end result, greatly aiding in their decision-making. Dr Lee will also elaborate on digital treatment planning involved in the orthodontic-orthognathic management of patients with dentofacial-deformities, using the surgery-first orthognathic approach.

    Learning objectives:
    • Learn how to implement intraoral scanner in the orthodontic clinic
    • Explore how Digital Treatment planning can improve patient communication and care
    • Understand advantages of the digital workflow in surgery first orthognathic approach (discussion to be continued by Dr Lye Kok Weng)

  • Lecture 1: Custom appliance design and transfer of the appliances
    In this lecture, we will answer the question: Why should custom appliances replace traditional orthodontic appliances. Then we will focus on the design and fabrication of the custom orthodontic appliances. The last part of the lecture will focus on the transfer of the custom appliance systems to the dentition, the start of treatment and the need to monitor treatment progress.
  • Lecture 2: Comparison of Custom Orthodontic Appliances Systems
    In this lecture, we will compare the workflow of the custom appliance systems most frequently used in orthodontic offices. For orthodontic treatment with buccally placed brackets, customized standard brackets with custom wires, the customized brackets with custom clear wires from SimpliClear and the Insignia system are compared. We will also show all recent improvements of the suresmile system. For lingual treatment, the Win system, the Incognto system, the eBrace and eLock system are compared. For aligners, the use of Invisalign system and alternative aligner systems which can be used to finish a case after initial correction of the dentition with fixed appliances (“hybride appliances”) are discussed.

  • Lecture 1: Digital Workflows in Orthodontics
    New ways of acquiring patient specific 3D data with intra-oral scanning systems have become available to clinicians allowing us to create a truly digital patient journey. Dr Christensen will examine pros and cons of various digital options and detail the workflow from initial consultation, imaging for diagnosis and treatment planning, model analysis and digital set-up options.

    Workflows deigned to improve the customization of orthodontic appliances and now available through laboratories and orthodontic manufacturing facilities in many parts of the world. The latest 3D printing technology is making several processes available in house in even small orthodontic clinics. Examples of digitally created customized appliances will be shown with clinical case material and emphasis will be made on the orthodontist’s ability to control the design and development of the appliances. Labial as well as lingual and removable appliance options will be demonstrated.

    Leaning objectives:
    • Understand the steps involved in data acquisition
    • The process of digital diagnosis and treatment planning
    • Develop an understanding for the appliances that can be generated from intra-oral 3D captured data
    • Customization of orthodontic appliances
    • 3D printing techniques
  • Lecture 2: Indirect bonding techniques
    The expansion in 3D data acquisition has expanded the possibilities in indirect bonding. In this presentation Dr Christensen will analyze different methods for indirect bonding. The advantages and disadvantages will be presented with elements of cost benefit analysis included. With the availability of accurate but inexpensive printing techniques the workflows are now not only an option for large orthodontic clinics or large laboratory setups.

    The presentation will show the evolution in the process of indirect bonding and argue that it is now time to get involved in indirect orthodontic bonding.

    Leaning objectives:
    • Understand advantages and disadvantages if indirect bonding tray materials
    • Be able to differentiate between the different available techniques for indirect bonding
    • Understand steps in the production of indirect bonding trays

  • Lecture: Making your intraoral scanner and invisible aligners work for you and your patients
    In my practice, we are continually making changes to help improve the experience for our patients, to help increase practice efficiency and to improve the workplace for all the team. Developing effective protocols has been the key to patient acceptance of treatment and resulted in the increase in the number of patients that I have started to treat with the Invisalign System. I will share some of the changes we have made to help enable our success. Integrating the iTero scanner rather than traditional impressions fundamentally changed how we did what we did and it's a process that continues to evolve.

    Learning outcomes:

    1. Explore how to challenge yourself, and be comfortable with, change
    2. How to incorporate the iTero scanner into the new patient consultation
    3. Understand the advantages and disadvantages of a digital workflow

  • Lecture: Enhanced management of orthodontic - orthognathic patients using new digital platforms
    Orthognathic surgery for the treatment of debtofacial deformities has been advancing steadily with the advent of new digital and 3D printing technology. The improved accuracy and ability using the digital workflow enables clinicians to handle most cases using the surgery first approach. This approach is most welcomed by patients as it handles the main complaints early and improves the overall speed, comfort and aesthetics of the whole treatment process. Dr Lye will elaborate on the step by step processes of digital treatment planning involved in the surgery first orthodontic-orthognathic management of patients with dentofacial-deformity.

    Learning objectives:
    • Digital 3D analysis of dentofacial deformity
    • Digital 3D model surgery and simulation for treatment planning and patient communication
    • 3D printing for guide fabrication in surgery first orthognathic approach

  • Lecture: Digital analysis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea cases
    More and more people have snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and concern about their effects on the health. Some of these sleep problems are associated with the small airway space as well as the retrusive mandible. So orthodontists are likely to meet with those people having high risk of snoring and OSA. 3D imaging has many benefits in diagnosis, treatment plan, and even treatment results evaluation in this regard. Several cases will be shown to explain.

    Learning objectives:
    。Quickly screen out high risk patients of snoring / OSA with digital 3D imaging
    。Adequate treatment options for snoring / OSA patients in orthodontics
    。Collaboration of both surgeon and orthodontist in digital 3D simulation to establish surgical treatment plan
