2D Lingual Orthodontics System Seminar

Forestadent invites you to
2D Lingual Orthodontics System
Lingual Orthodontic for everybody
(Direct Bonding Application Course)

Speaker: Dr. Vittorio Cacciafesta

September 28-29, 2009
Taal Vista Hotel, Tagaytay City

2D System Philosophy

The bidimensional lingual technique employs 2D lingual brackets, superelastic lingual archwires, and direct bracket bonding, without any need of setup. The
brackets are self ligating and do not have a traditional rectangular slot in the base; on the other hand, they have two clips on the lingual surface to trap the
Because they do not have slots, only 1st and 2nd order movements are possible. The ease of direct application of 2D lingual brackets makes it possible to
achieve a good functional occlusion also in the presence of severe malocclusions, adopting the biomechanical options offered by lingual appliances, as
well as bypassing many factors that complicate conventional lingual treatment. Such technique has proved to be very successful in cases of post-treatment
retention, closure of minor spaces, limited correction of deep bites, correction of mild crowdings, particularly in the mandibular arch, and correction of
anterior cross bites. The use of 2D lingual brackets represents a valuable alternative to conventional 3D lingual brackets in the treatment of different

Course description
Delegates who attend this lingual orthodontics course will be given the tools, techniques and confi dence to immediately introduce lingual orthodontic
treatment in their own practices. You will learn about the fundamental differences between lingual and labial orthodontics and understand the importance
of biomechanics in the various treatment phases.
You will learn about the principles and limitations of lingual orthodontics and different lingual orthodontic bracket systems. You will learn how to screen
your patients to select those cases suitable for lingual orthodontic treatment. You will understand how to decide whether 2D or 3D lingual appliances are
the correct choice for your treatment plan for each patient. Other practical advice and techniques which will be covered include: direct and indirect bonding,
lingual archwire mechanics and the fabrication of Titanol lingual archwires.
The course will include typodont exercises with the Forestadent ‘2D’ lingual brackets. There will also be opportunities to bring along your own cases for
