The lecture is inspired by a popular Danish story where the quest for the latest and best bespoke fashion is busted by a little boy who dares to speak the truth. Contemporary Evidence and Research on the clinical performance / protocols of aligner wear will be deliberated, with data and clinical examples. The focus of the lecture will be on three broad principles -
  1. Understanding conceptual shift in patient preferences on appliances and reasons thereof.
  2. Original data and number crunching that we can take to the clinical floors.
  3. Clinical do's and don’ts in aligner therapy.
