Minimum Touch Orthodontics in Time of Pandemic with Dr. Luis Carrière | Henry Schein Orthodontics

Undeniably, the pandemic has brought about new and unfamiliar challenges, yet practitioners continue to interact and treat patients to ensure the best clinical outcomes. With the proper tools and technology available, a combination of virtual and physical consultations are keeping patients on track. The advancement of virtual appointments falls in line with patients and consumers who value their time and are drawn to time-saving, convenient options. They are seeking fewer visits, shorter treatment times, and minimal emergency visits. By treating the SAGITTAL FIRST, incorporating MOTION 3D Appliance at the beginning of treatment and correcting the AP relationship, it is easy to monitor patients virtually while saving time.

MOTION 3D Appliance is not an active appliance. It will stop working once the desired movement is achieved. Patients can be seen virtually or remotely until the Class I is achieved. It is important to note that incorporating the All-New M-Series wires, (including .015 CuNi wire), and the innovative 3-wire sequence in conjunction with the new Carriere SLX3D Self-ligating bracket, will allow clinicians to reduce the number of necessary appointments, and monetize their follow-up digitally and at a distance. This unique treatment protocol and appliances will also significantly reduce the mechanical orthodontic complexities and will help clinicians generating an assistance telematic for emergencies scenario.
