Conference for orthodontists and staffs Interested in digital orthodontics slated for March 1-3, 2012.

RICHARDSON, Texas--Registration remains open for the 2012 SureSmile Conference March 1-3, 2012, at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.

Orthodontists interested in learning more about digital technology and advanced treatment techniques are invited to attend.

One of the features of the conference is the unveiling of SureSmile 6.0, the latest version of SureSmile orthodontic technology. SureSmile 6.0 is an orthodontic system that provides the ability to plan treatment by positioning teeth and roots within supporting bone.

* 6.0 for doctors: "The one thing that any software needed to bring was how teeth roots move in bone. It is at the crux of our profession; it's probably the most important thing in orthodontics, and there has never been a tool to properly assess that until now," said Dr. Manny Lamichane, Long Orthodontic Associates, Lancaster, Pa.

* 6.0 for patients: "It's a lot more information, but it's a lot better for the patient in the long term because the teeth having the roots in the bone structure is making them more stable, over the lifetime of the patient," said Dr. Katie Graber, Graber Orthodontics, Chicago, Ill.

* 6.0 for surgical cases: "What's unique about SureSmile is--for the first time--we are able to integrate virtual orthodontics, virtual movement of the teeth, with virtual skeletal surgery. Now we have a pure marriage between skeletal reconstruction and the orthodontic movement of teeth," said Dr. Pravin Patel, craniofacial surgeon,
Chicago, Ill.

The SureSmile conference will also feature a clinical lecture by Dr. Rohit Sachdeva, orthodontic expert and chief clinical Officer. In addition, attendees can choose from more than a dozen lectures and panels delivered by SureSmile experts on biomechanics, wire design, esthetics, as well as emerging technologies. This includes CBCT and lingual braces treatment.
