Certificate Course on CLEAR ALIGNERS


1 year

Clear aligners or invisible braces are a state-of-art alternative to traditional braces which gained its popularity in recent years because of increased public awareness on esthetic treatment approach to correct malocclusions.

This certificate course is designed to provide an in-depth knowledge on case selection, treatment planning, and understanding of simple and complex biomechanics of clear aligners.

The clinical training in this area of specialization is still not included in the curriculum of postgraduate programs; therefore this course is aimed to help the postgraduate to learn the clinical skills needed to integrate clear aligners in their orthodontic practice.

This comprehensive clear aligner program focuses on streamlining clinician’s skill in diagnosing, planning and management of malocclusion with aligner mechanotherapy. Upon completion of this program, the clinician will be able to identify suitable cases fit for aligner treatment and would have the basic clinical skills to treat aligner cases.
