I was initially keen to expand my treatment options and start offering orthodontics to my patients. I chose to take the IAS Academy course following recommendations by some of my peers. I think it is a great course – there is a lot to learn on the day, but the support offered by the team on the forum and through the online training afterwards is invaluable. It was with the help of the IAS Academy team that I chose to use the Aligner system for this particular case.
A 24-year-old patient attended the practice complaining of a ‘snaggle tooth’ at the front of her mouth. She had previously undergone orthodontic treatment, but had since experienced some slight relapse. The patient was only really concerned about the UR1 and UL1, and she didn’t want to correct the misalignment of the lower teeth.
A comprehensive orthodontic assessment was carried out, including radiographs, and no abnormalities were detected.
