Union League, Philadelphia, PA
Speaker: Dr. Robert Boyd
Topics: Predictability of Successful Orthodontic Treatment Using Invisalign [slides of presentation, PDF]

Dr. Boyd will discuss Orthodontic treatment limitations of complex malocclusions with the Invisalign Appliance. The lack of significant plaque accumulation and ability to minimize forces with Invisalign vs. conventional fixed appliances may also make this appliance more advantageous for orthodontic treatment of patients with increased susceptibility to periodontal disease. Dr. Boyd will provide the results of his feasibility studies of this appliance done at the University of the Pacific, San Francisco, as well as his own clinical experience in his private practice of its use.
