It takes the blink of an eye to decide if we like somebody or not. Is that a conscious decision? When we want to convice a patient of our treatment proposal, how much detail should we share - will they decide based on the rational reasons or are there any factors? Why is it that we explain clearly what we like to do and why, then later the patients asks us what we so clearly explained already?

Is the future of orthodontics going digital? In the past, Indirect Bonding involved many steps in the laboratory process that made it technique sensitive and complicated to implement in the daily practice.
Currently the combination of intra-oral scanning, digital workflows together with disruptive developments like 3M™ APC™ Flash-Free can make the difference. In this webinar you will discover a new, digital and simplified way to reconsider the implementation of indirect bonding in your practice.
The requirements of orthodontic patients rapidly changed over time. In the past, people sent their children to the orthodontist just to upright their teeth and the orthodontist was expected to perform a technical treatment to align or level the teeth or to correct severe malocclusions. Today it’s different in some way. Correcting the occlusion is not sufficient anymore. Not only children, but also adults are fascinated by all aesthetic images spread by the media. They all want to be as beautiful as their preferred movie stars and they want their smile at the end of an orthodontic treatment. It’s not only about the final aspect of their teeth. They also want an aesthetic smile during the months the orthodontic treatment lasts. There is a real trend towards aesthetics. This trend is led by the media, followed by the people of our today’s society. This also became a source of competition between orthodontist. Applying aesthetic treatments with aesthetic appliances like the 3M™ Clarity™ Advanced and Clarity™ Ultra ceramic braces is a real added value in the eyes of the patients. Let’s go with the wind, not against the wind.
Today’s esthetically aware patient, require today’s esthetic dental-care. Considering the fact that the goal of orthodontic treatment is to enhance facial and dental esthetic appearance, it is in greater demand today than ever before. However, enamel decalcifications called white spot lesions are one of the most common complications which can significantly impair the esthetic results for orthodontic patients. Regular use of fluoride toothpaste is the most common recommendation by orthodontists, but research shows that it is not effective in preventing white lesions around orthodontic braces as it's highly dependent on the patient's cooperation. Do we have other solutions? Can we keep our promise to do no harm?
