Aligner Training Centre – training for doctors
The main assumption and purpose behind the creation of the Clear Aligner Centre was and is to promote the use of the Clear Aligner method throughout the country. For years, we trained doctors – both those who are interested in implementing this method in their practices, and those who already apply the method, but wish to perfect it to achieve better results and cure more and more complicated cases.
Non-surgical Jaw Expansion with the use of MSE Jaw Bone Expander
Warsaw 26 October, 2019 r.
Hotel Marriott, KOMETA room
Consecutive interpreting: Dr. Rafał Rogowski
Prof. Won Moon, appointed by Thomas R. Bales to the Chair of Orthodontics, is the program director of the UCLA School of Dentistry orthodontic residency program. Since 2002, he holds the American Board of Orthodontics diploma. He graduated from Harvard dentistry, and orthodontic education at UCLA. He studied mathematics before dentistry, and his research interests include 3D image analysis using surface mapping functions and elliptical Fourier descriptors, craniofacial phenotype research in the Genomewide Association, elaboration and simulation of the finite element model, 3D orthodontic printing, orthopaedic correction, respiratory system pathway corrections as part of orthopaedic corrections, accelerated tooth dislocation and micro-implant (MI) design. His works were published in various journals, and due to his unrestricted interests in the field of orthodontics, he is also a co-author of two textbooks. He presented the results of his research in 15 countries, during over 150 presentations. Currently, he focuses on creating orthopaedic correction protocols with MI, correcting the airways in patients with nasal obstruction and creating virtual patients with the use of image analysis.
His interests in the expansion of the central part of the face began in 2003, when micro-implants became available in the US, and he is responsible for the development of the Maxillary Skeletal Expander (MSE), a unique, micro-implant assisted, rapid palatal expander (MARPE). It actively supports non-surgical bone expansion in both adult and paediatric patients, especially in cases of patients suffering from restricted airway flow. His presentation on the MSE has gained wide acceptance worldwide, and the publications concerning it were subject to numerous reviews.
MSE are evolving since 2004, and their popularity is constantly growing, worldwide. With the appearance of a number of publications related to MSE by many people (twenty of them were written by Prof. Won Moon), there is clear evidence to support this impact.
Dental and bone effects of maxillary expansion using a conventional rapid palatal expander (RPE), a surgically assisted rapid palatal expander (SARPE), and a maxillary skeletal expander assisted with micro-implant (MSE). We will compare dental expansion, bone bending and real bone expansion. The adverse clinical effects of RPE and SARPE will be investigated in the case of higher Angle classes, and a new approach presented, based on research data, eliminating these problems with use of MSE. Clinical cases, including non-surgical craniofacial expansion both in adolescent patients and adults, will be examined in detail. Thanks to these clinical examples, appropriate protocols for the execution and expansion with use of MSE will be presented.
Secondly, other advantages of MSE application will also be presented. Many patients requiring jaw expansion are characterised by narrow nasal airways, and in the case of MSE, there are also positive changes in these. We will evaluate in detail the clinical cases and the results of studies illustrating the significant widening of nasal airways and improvement of functioning following MSE use in both adolescent and adult patients.
In the concept of orthopaedic expansion, MSE can also be of use, in combination with a facial mask (FM), in orthopaedic correction in cases of the Third Angle Class. We will present clinical cases and their orthopaedic outcomes, where MSE and FM were combined, in both ascending and adult patients.
Finally, we will also discuss the unknown effects on bones. Using examples of clinical cases, we will discuss changes in facial dimensions and that of surrounding structures. The latest discoveries of the UCLA research team will be presented in order to broaden the knowledge of MSE procedures.
The course will cover a comprehensive overview of current MSE applications, but it will also inspire those who are looking for more advanced MSE applications.

I International Conference Powered by Athenea Dental Institute
Occlusion Algorithms in Orthodontics
Dr Pablo Echarri (director of the Master of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics programme at the Athenea Dental Institute) will talk about occlusion in the final and retention phases of Orthodontic treatment. Dr Echarri will focus the attention of the participants on the significant role of occlusion in achieving the three main therapeutic goals: AESTHETICS, FUNCTION AND STABILISATION of the masticatory organ.
Dr Miguel Campoy will raise the subject of Occlusion in diagnostics and orthodontic therapy, speaking about a problem that affects some 15% of patients subject to orthodontic treatment. Dr. Campoy will demonstrate why it is so important to pay attention to the lack of harmonisation of the central relationship and habitual occlusion, and to take this into account in the diagnostic process.
Dr Mieszko Więckiewicz will speak on occlusional controversies. He will discuss issues pertaining to the relationship between occlusion and the pathomechanism of temporomandibular disorders, and the role of the articulator and facial arch in the design of a correct occlusion.
Dr. Young-Min Jo will deal with an important subject in the era of digitisation, when manufacturers are offering us better and more modern technologies. Dr Jo will speak about the latest and proven communication tools. He will present technologies and processes that not only improve treatment but also communication in orthodontic practice.
10.00 – 10.30 AM greeting the guests
10.30 AM – 12.00 PABLO ECHARRI, DDS
Occlusion in the final and retention phases of orthodontic treatment.
Occlusion became an important factor in three main therapeutic goals: aesthetics, function and stabilisation. The correct position of the elements of temporomandibular joints, and at the same time, the physiological operation of the masticatory muscles are important factors in the final phase of orthodontic treatment, including the retention phase.
12.00 – 12.15 PM break
12.15 – 01.45 PM – Yong-min Jo, DDS, MS, Ph.D.
Digital communication tools in orthodontic practice
Digital technologies and processes used in treatment and communication.
The digital revolution in dentistry has finally reached orthodontists. Digital processes such as intra-oral scanning and 3D printing are becoming more and more popular in orthodontic practices, enabling digital orthodontic data flow, which was still impossible just a few years ago. The work cycle can be divided into the following aspects: 3D digitisation, software processes, 3D printing and digitally planned clinical applications.
The lecture will explain each segment of the digital workflow, starting with the process of “digitising” with a thorough look at intra-oral scanning and model scanning. In addition, digital data processing and digital analysis and treatment planning will be discussed. 3D printing and new lab capabilities, as well as innovative clinical applications resulting from a fully digital workflow, such as Memotain, Nitinol CAD/CAM or Individua and CA Clear Aligners.
01.45 – 02.00 PM break
02.00 – 03.15 Dr hab. n. med. Mieszko Więckiewicz
Correct occlusion remains in a dynamic relationship with the neuromuscular system of the masticatory apparatus and temporomandibular joints, which directly determines the maintenance of the physiological function of the stomatognathic system. Reconstructing correct occlusion brings each dentist a step closer to therapeutic success. Therefore, the objective of the lecture will be to discuss aspects related to the creation of perfect occlusion, aimed at ensuring the harmonious functioning of the dental arches and the musculoskeletal system. Issues pertaining to the relationship between occlusion and the pathomechanism of temporomandibular disorders, and the role of the articulator and facial arch in the design of correct occlusion will also be discussed. The topic of the complexities related to the involvement of the peripheral and central nervous system in the etiopathogenesis of occlusive-muscular-joint disorders will also be discussed.
15.15 – 15.30 PM break
15.30 – 17.00 MIGUEL ÁNGEL PÉREZ CAMPOY, DDS
Occlusion in orthodontic diagnosis and therapy
The subject of occlusion is highly significant at the initial stage of the therapeutic process in orthodontics. About 15% of patients treated orthodontically demonstrate lack of harmonisation of the central relationship and habitual occlusion, which forms a significant clinical issue to be considered in the diagnostic process. This phenomenon will be analysed in the sagittal, transverse and vertical planes, in relation to various malocclusion, including a description of its impact on correct diagnostics.

The Multiloop Edgewise Archwire is a brilliant system of orthodontic treatment based on understanding the occlusion plane as the basic tool of orthodontic diagnosis, combining it with a passion for orthodontics.
Every orthodontist looking for challenges should sign up for this course. Mastering MEAW systems opens up the deepest realms of orthodontic biomechanics and significantly shortens patient treatment time. In addition, it will also allow you to understand the relationship between TMD and occlusion or malocclusion.
The number of places is limited (max. 25-person group)
Diagnosis of Functional Disorders of the Mesticatory Organ
The entire course will be devoted to the diagnosis of functional disorders of the masticatory organ and will be divided in two parts:
- theoretical part
- practical part
The aim of the course is to broaden knowledge of the diagnosis of temporomandibular joints, planning the treatment of orthognathic malocclusions through prosthetic reconstructions and orthodontic methods based on the concept of Prof. Sadao Sato.
The theoretical part will be devoted to the analysis and discussion of the treatment of patients with functional disorders of the masticatory system. Based on diagnostic research by Prof. Sadao Sato, and according to his concept, students will establish treatment plans for the discussed cases. The professor will discuss the condylographs; electronic examination of the functions of chewing, speech, swallowing, teeth clamping, grinding, protrusion and laterotrusion. We will discuss the following on the diagnostic level: etiology of malocclusion, functional examination of the patient, cephalometric analysis acc. to the concept of Prof. Sada Sato, diagnosis and treatment of bruxism, methods for determining the reference position and therapeutic position.
Diagnostic elements require the use of devices to examine the movements of the mandible, therefore, during the practical part, we will include exercises in using the Cadiax system – for use in everyday medical and dental practice, built on the basis of many years of medical experience of prof. Rudolf Slavicka, enabling us to record jaw movements and articulation parameters. It is a modern method of functional diagnostics and analysis, analysing the movements of the hinge axis and mandibular condyles, allowing us to individually program the articulator, record and verify the treatment process.
During the practical part, we will hold a demonstration of patient recording on the Cadiax face arch, individual joint axis, and a full examination and diagnosis process. The last day of training will be devoted to interpretation of the results from the previous day.
