Soft devices, used for orthodontics, facilitate a number of functions in oral treatments. Their plasticity allows them to be useful both for the purpose of dental traction and for the prevention of injuries due to erosion in pathologies such as bruxism, or in the case of sports professionals or those in dangerous jobs, with the aim of protecting teeth from accidental trauma.
Although its biomechanical power is less than that of conventional orthodontic devices, due to the flexibility and texture of the materials, some effectiveness is obtained with the advantage of low invasiveness in the patient.
This program is oriented to provide the professional with an update on the main aspects of Thermoplastic Orthodontics, in a practical way, 100% online, and adapted to their needs.
