HOUSTON (April 11, 2017) – Orthodontists and their staff can now register for “Managing Wire Sequencing and Appointment Intervals with Accelerated Treatment Patients,” a complimentary webinar that will be streamed live on Friday, May 12, 2017 via OrthoAccelLearning.com. During this webinar Dr. Straty Righellis, a nationally and internationally recognized orthodontic lecturer, will share best practices for treating braces patients using accelerated orthodontic technology, such as AcceleDent®.
AcceleDent is the first and only FDA-cleared vibratory orthodontic device that is demonstrated to speed up bone remodeling by employing SoftPulse Technology®. The pulsating forces like those AcceleDent produces are clinically shown to stimulate cellular activity in orthodontic treatment. A Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Righellis has been offering patients AcceleDent at his practice in Oakland, Calif. for more than five years and has developed an optimal wire sequencing and appointment interval protocol for treating braces patients with the device. AcceleDent works in conjunction with braces or aligners to speed up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent and reduce discomfort.
“Since I’ve treated more than 100 patients with AcceleDent, including cases with various malocclusions, I’ve developed a systematic approach to planning the mechanics, wire sequencing and patient appointments for fixed appliance patients,” said Righellis, who is a reviewer for the American Journal of Orthodontics. “I look forward to sharing these cases with my peers and reiterating the importance of modifying treatment protocol when integrating accelerated orthodontic technology into practice.”
Webinar attendees will learn how to strategically plan and modify standard wire sequences for each phase of treatment to optimize mechanics when teeth are moving at faster rates. Righellis will show case examples that demonstrate his protocols during leveling, aligning and finishing that enable him to maximize clinical efficiencies without compromising results. Participants who complete the complimentary webinar and the subsequent exam will receive one CE credit accredited by the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program.
Orthodontists and clinical team members interested in additional continuing learning opportunities are invited to attend AcceleDent’s 2017 microlecture presentations during the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) Annual Session, April 21-25 (booth #3037). AcceleDent will also unveil the next generation of accelerated orthodontics during the AAO Annual Session.
