We have an opportunity to make our new patient experience exceptional. One way to achieve this is by using strategies through marketing to give our patients what they want instead of what we want. This is the foundation and the key to being competitive in highly competitive markets. If we make a decision to differentiate our practices this way we can become more successful than ever. My simple market research has found that my patients have four top desires. They want esthetic treatment. They want the treatment to be fast. They want excellent results and they want to be wowed. This CE webinar will explore strategies how we can incorporate these ideals into our practices and therefore attract more new patients and also to be able to improve our Case Acceptance Rate.

Reverse Double Overtie with Steel Ligature (German Overtie with Steel Ligature): Incognito™ Appliance System Clinical Guide
Sponsor: 3M Ortho
Released: 11/17/11
View Full Description »
Tools: Needle nose hemostat and ligature director with a small head Ligature material: Thin steel ligature 0.008” diameter and two inches in length When to use it: Use this tie to prevent tipping when you are retracting canines or doing en-masse retraction. For maximum control, the wire needs to be guided close to the bracket body. Technique: Make a u-shape under the hook on both sides of the bracket body going under the wire. Take one side, go over the wire and under the hook and close it on the opposite side by twisting. Push the sides of the steel ligature as close to the bracket body as possible and tighten to maximize the seating force.

Sponsor: 3M Ortho
Released: 11/17/11
View Full Description »
Tools: Hemostat/Mosquito pliers and ligature director with a small head Ligature material: Sections of four modules of powerchain (not too thick; can use Rocky Mountain or Ormco) When to use it: Use the reverse double overtie when you need maximum seating force on the wire. Technique: Ligature is placed around the hook and the behind the occlusal wing before placing the wire. In contrast to a normal double overtie, the free modules are oriented to the occlusal. To overtie, seat the wire in the slot with a ligature director, stretch the elastic with the hemostat/mosquito pliers over the wire and fix the first module under the hook, using the ligature director to direct the powerchain. To remove the reverse double overtie, use a short dental explorer to pull the ligature from under the hook and remove.
