3M Orthodontics, St Paul, Minn, recently wrapped its 2017 Incognito Appliance System International User Meeting, held in October in Paris. More than 150 orthodontists from 25 countries attended the conference which featured a lineup of lectures, workshops, networking events, and a poster symposium. Thirteen experts in lingual treatment presented on the use of the Incognito System.
The Incognito System, from 3M Orthodontics, is a fully customizable, invisible fixed orthodontic appliance system that features robot-bent archwires and low-profile appliances.
According to the company, it has hosted these international lingual treatment user meetings for nearly 10 years “to encourage educational activities about theoretical applications, and to share practical technique recommendations that can help make the system work well in the practice.” This year, the Incognito System team reportedly also shared scientific research in the poster symposium, plus clinical advice services and practice marketing opportunities.
The meeting showcased a number of treatment strategies using the latest system innovations, including the proprietary Clear Precision Tray, which is designed for more accurate bracket placement and reduced bond failure rate, and a new bracket designed for improved angulation control.
