Orthodontics Clinical Training 5 - DENT5166

This unit is designed to familiarise students with the important orthodontic techniques including standard Edgewise, basic straight wire techniques (e.g. MBT). Each clinical technique is taught first by typodont simulation and then applied to patients. This Unit also gives the students opportunities to use a variety of bracket types, and practice choosing proper archwires from a wide range of preformed wires. Advanced skills training also covers the knowledge and use of advanced digital imaging systems, such as Dolphin, 3dMD, LaserDenta and their applications in assisting case diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment assessment.
