Pre-conference course I

Introduction to the Six Elements Orthodontic Philosophy™

Date: 05/12/2018 Venue: Amrita School of Dentistry

About the course

The Six Keys to Optimal Occlusion have proven to be optimal and universal treatment goals for teeth. In addition to occlusion, the Six Element Orthodontic Philosophy defines treatment goals for: 1) the Arches (shape, width and length), 2) AP Jaw Positions, 3) Maxilla Width, 4) Jaw Heights, and 5) Chin Prominence. In this 1-day (hands-on and lecture) course you will be introduced to the Six Elements goals as well as how to diagnosis, treatment plan, classify using a new 3D positionally-correct system, and to concepts for treating efficiently. Upon completion of this course, participants will have learned:

  • Defendable treatment goals for teeth, arches, and jaws
  • Principles of Six Elements diagnosis
  • The importance of diagnosing individual arches rather than malocclusions
  • Guidelines for differentiating extraction from non-extraction arches
  • Features of the Andrews Straight-Wire Appliance System
  • How to prescribe and site the Andrews Straight-Wire Appliance
  • Efficient and effective strategies for treating
  • A new 3-D positionally-correct classification system
  • A new and more accurate articulator system
