In addition to education, HSO will feature hands-on product demonstrations of the following orthodontic solutions:

  • Carriere Motion 3D Class II – The Carriere Motion 3D Class II appliance is based on the Sagittal First philosophy of achieving a stable Class I platform in the posterior segment at the onset of treatment to simplify treatment and reduce patient time in braces or aligners. This treatment paradigm helps eliminate competing force vectors and patient compliance issues inherent in traditional Class II correction. This appliance is simple to use, features a sleek patient-friendly design, and helps achieve predictable outcomes.
  • Carriere Motion 3D Class III Appliance – The Motion 3D Class III Appliance is a minimally invasive appliance designed to treat Class III malocclusions without extractions, painful surgery, or traditionally uncomfortable and obtrusive facemasks. Utilizing the latest in advanced orthodontic technology, the Motion 3D Appliance helps ensure a fast, effective, and aesthetic first-phase treatment.
  • Carriere SLX 3D Self-Ligating Bracket System with M-Series & Expansion Wires – The bracket system features narrow brackets for narrow teeth and wide brackets for wide teeth, helping practitioners perform aligner treatment for all patients, and achieve rotational control and ideal tooth positioning with enhanced precision. Carriere M-Series Wires, which include the .015 Cu Nitanium Wire and the innovative 3-Wire Sequence, were engineered to enable a simplified wire progression protocol, reduce the number of wires used, and finish cases in approximately 12 months. The patented M-Series Expansion Wires are pre-manufactured Copper Nitanium wires in pre-formed wide and narrow archwire shapes, ideal for treating expansion, crossbite, and Brodie bite malocclusions.
  • Minimum Touch OrthodonticSM (MTO) – MTO is a new treatment philosophy from Henry Schein Orthodontics that blends contemporary clinical principles with advanced digital solutions into an efficient workflow, delivering enhanced results in fewer and shorter appointments with reduced treatment times. The goal of MTO is to help practitioners satisfy the busy lifestyle demands of patients and cater to patients who favor convenience.
  • Reveal Clear Aligners (Reveal) featuring Studio Pro 4.0 – From patient scans to aligner treatment, Reveal offers a simple workflow that’s easy to manage, helping to maximize clinical efficiency and aligner treatment predictability. The Reveal Clear Aligners system uses an open platform, making it digitally compatible with most intraoral scanners or polyvinyl siloxane (PVS) impressions, ensuring customers can use existing equipment for additional savings and a familiar workflow. In addition, Reveal features treatment visualization software, such as Studio Pro 4.0. The web-based treatment visualization software for Reveal Clear Aligners provides enhanced functionality to model, customize, and fine-tune tooth movement. Customers can access the software using DDX (Digital Dental Exchange), a free web-based platform that allows practitioners to communicate with Henry Schein Orthodontics’ aligner lab partners and create and submit patient data for case management.

In addition to these products, experts will be available to discuss the latest integrations between Reveal Clear Aligners and many leading intraoral scanners from 3Shape, Dentsply Sirona, Medit, and Planmeca, as well as data practice management software integration with Ortho2, a leading provider of practice management software solutions to orthodontists in the US and Canada.
