Delegates at this year’s British Orthodontic Conference can look forward to the esteemed orthodontist Jay Bowman from the US, covering two sessions
He will be presenting ‘Uno, dos, tres: All miniscrews in one place (mostly); and ‘Drastic plastic: Improving the predictability of clear aligners’.
In the first, Jay will be considering that with the advantage of hindsight, when examining treatments involving the use of miniscrew anchorage, it appears in a parallax view that moving from buccal interradicular insertion of miniscrews to the palate, often affords more reliability and versatility for orthodontic biomechanics.
Drastic Plastic sees Jay look at techniques to improve the predictability of desired results using clear aligners.
A variety of concepts, methods, and adjuncts have been introduced to enhance the efficacy and effectiveness of clear aligners.
As a consequence, the scope of biomechanics and type of malocclusions that can be more predictably treated has increased.
Jay is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and a member of the Edward H. Angle Society of Orthodontists.
He is co-author/editor of the book: Mini-Implants in Orthodontics: Innovative Anchorage Concepts, has lectured in 36 countries and has been in the private practice of orthodontics for over 30 years.
This year’s British Orthodontic Conference is at the SEC in Glasgow between 19-21 September and the theme is ‘Looking ahead’.
David Waring, chair of the BOC committee added, ‘We are delighted to welcome Jay as well as a host of other renowned international and UK speakers.
‘We have a pre- conference course on the psychology of orthodontics and decision making, two parallel sessions, a DCP programme and excellent social events for which the BOC has become famous.
‘We feel that we have something for everyone at this year’s conference and we look forward to welcoming you all.’
