About The Program

Join MASO and Dr. Gary Brigham for a one-day seminar that will be focused on his experience with treating pre-teens, teens, and adults with Invisalign using Propel’s accelerated treatment modalities, and how applying both micro osteoperforations (MOPs) and High Frequency Vibration (HFV) to these cases ensures successful finishes, dramatically shortened treatment time, fewer refinements, and enhanced practice profitability. In addition, he will update the science supporting these procedures and devices (as well as the MOPs technique), and how incorporating these modalities into his treatment protocols has attracted further practice growth and enhanced practice image. Finally, Dr. Brigham will discuss new uses for HFV based upon recent studies, and how he is implementing these in his practice to benefit his patients.


Course Objectives

After this course, the attending doctor should be able to:

(1) Review history, science and the synergistic effects of Micro-osteoperforation (MOPs®) and High Frequency Vibration (HFV)

(2) Understand HFV in retention and in improving alveolar bone density following tooth extraction and implants

(3) Review conventional and updated MOPs treatment protocols

(4) Learn applications of HFV in pre-teen, teen, and adult cases

(5) Discuss case selection and challenging tooth movements

(6) Three specific clinical treatment objectives that should be applied to every aligner case

(7) How attention to smile aesthetics elevates aligner finishes that create practice growth & enhance practice image

(8) A systematic approach to incorporating smile arc aesthetics into ClinCheck® treatment planning in pre-teen, teen and adult cases
