These workshops and certificates aim to review complicated orthodontic cases treated using Invisalign clear aligner system. With the advancement in technology desired results can be successfully achieved in treating complicated orthodontic cases using Invisalign clear aligner system. Our team has a very in-depth understanding of Invisalign biomechanics and years of experience giving you the desired outcome. 

Case selection is importing for Invisalign treatment, we offer a full suite of orthodontic braces systems. For complicated cases, a detailed assessment is required for treatment planning and bracket system selection. 

Please note, the outcome of your Invisalign treatment will directly dependent on knowledge of orthodontics of your treating clinician. No two clinicians can render the same Invisalign results. It is important you choose a provider with a sound understanding of biomechanics and tooth movement. The clinician should be able to work with all kinds of orthodontic systems including Invisalign to provide you right unbiased treatment choice specific to your case. 

Our Team has been involved in comprehensive research comparing Clear Aligners Vs Fixed Orthodontic Systems (Braces). Latest to the addition Our Orthodontic team alongside with American Orthodontists have published Research in American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics regarded as the best orthodontic research journals in America in Feb 2018. The research involved 71 randomized patients with different orthodontic appliance in active treatment over 18 months and the level of oral hygiene was compared. The research was aimed to determine which orthodontic appliance works best in maintaining Oral Hygiene. 

Research Abstract referenced from PubMed:-

Which orthodontic appliance is best for oral hygiene? A randomized clinical trial.

INTRODUCTION:

Clear aligners and to a lesser extent self-ligated brackets are considered to facilitate better oral hygiene than traditional fixed orthodontic appliances. This 3-arm parallel-group prospective randomized clinical trial compared the long-term and short-term effects of clear aligners, self-ligated brackets, and conventional (elastomeric-ligated) brackets on patients' oral hygiene during active orthodontic treatment.

METHODS:

Seventy-one participants (41 boys, 30 girls; mean age, 15.6 years) undergoing orthodontic treatment were randomly allocated through a computer-generated randomization schedule to one of the groups based on the choice of intervention: Clear Aligners (CLA) (Align Technology, San Jose, Calif) (n = 27), preadjusted edgewise fixed appliance with self-ligated brackets (SLB) (Carriere, Carlsbad, Calif (n = 22), or preadjusted edgewise fixed appliance with elastomeric ligated brackets (ELB) (Ortho Organizers Inc., Carlsbad, CA) (n = 22). For each participant, the primary outcome, plaque index (PI), and secondary outcomes, gingival Index (GI) and periodontal bleeding index (PBI), were measured at baseline (T0), after 9 months of treatment (T1), and after 18 months of treatment (T2). Blinding of the clinicians and the patients to the intervention was impossible. It was only done for outcome assessment and for the statistician. Ten participants did not receive the allocated intervention for various reasons.

RESULTS:

The means and standard deviations of PI at T0 (CLA, 0.50 ± 0.51; SLB, 0.65 ± 0.49; ELB, 0.70 ± 0.73), T1 (CLA, 0.83 ± 0.48; SLB, 1.38 ± 0.72; ELB, 1.32 ± 0.67), and T2 (CLA, 0.92 ± 0.58; SLB, 1.07 ± 0.59; ELB, 1.32 ± 0.67) were similar. The odds ratio (OR) for plaque index (0 or ≥1) comparing SLB or CLA to ELB was not significant. OR for SLB vs ELB = 1.54 at T0 (95% CI, 0.39-6.27), 0.88 at T1 (95% CI, 0.03-24.69), and 0.83 at T2 (95% CI, 0.02-27.70); OR for CLA vs ELB = 1.07 at T0 (95% CI, 0.30-3.88), 0.24 at T1 (95% CI, 0.01-1.98), and 0.17 at T2 (95% CI, 0.01-1.71). However, the odds ratios comparing CLA with ELB for GI (OR = 0.14; P = 0.015) and PBI (OR = 0.10; P = 0.012) were statistically significant at T1.

CONCLUSIONS:

In this prospective randomized clinical trial, we found no evidence of differences in oral hygiene levels among clear aligners, self-ligated brackets, and conventional elastomeric ligated brackets after 18 months of active orthodontic treatment.

REGISTRATION:

The trial is registered at ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT02745626).

 ORIGINAL RESEARCH

"Golden proportions as predictors of attractiveness and malocclusion"

Rajiv A, Juhi Y. Golden proportions as predictors of attractiveness and malocclusion. Indian J Dent Res 2014;25:788-93

Abstract

Objective: In recent years, the golden proportions have been evaluated by various researchers in the general population and orthodontic patients to establish their correlation with facial attractiveness and esthetics, but with conflicting results. The present study aimed to analyze the frontal facial golden proportions for three groups of young adult females, an attractive group, and two malocclusion groups. Our null hypothesis stated that the golden proportions of attractive females were analogous with or closer to the golden number than those with an established malocclusion.

Materials and Methods: Frontal facial photographs of 80 female dental students were scored for facial attractiveness by 10 dental specialists. Thirty females with scores greater than the median score of 48 formed the attractive group. Thirteen females with Class I malocclusion and 15 females with Class II division 1 malocclusion formed the two malocclusion groups. Ten landmarks and 19 golden proportions were calculated for all subjects. One-way ANOVA and unpaired Student's t-test was used to analyze the differences in golden proportions between the attractive and malocclusion groups.


Results: Significant differences were observed for 10 proportions (P < 0.04 to < 0.0001). Five vertical proportions showed significant differences in both subgroups; Attractive versus Class I and Attractive versus Class II division 1; while one vertical and all transverse proportions showed significant differences only in Attractive versus Class II division 1 subgroup. The average values of these proportions varied both toward and away from the golden number for both attractive and malocclusion groups.


Conclusion: Facial proportions of the attractive females were significantly different from those with malocclusion, but did not show a constant trend of being closer to the golden number. Furthermore, the golden proportions were not analogous with the facial aesthetics of attractive females.
