We have an opportunity to make our new patient experience exceptional. One way to achieve this is by using strategies through marketing to give our patients what they want instead of what we want. This is the foundation and the key to being competitive in highly competitive markets. If we make a decision to differentiate our practices this way we can become more successful than ever. My simple market research has found that my patients have four top desires. They want esthetic treatment. They want the treatment to be fast. They want excellent results and they want to be wowed. This CE webinar will explore strategies how we can incorporate these ideals into our practices and therefore attract more new patients and also to be able to improve our Case Acceptance Rate.

Reverse Double Overtie (German Overtie): Incognito™ Appliance System Clinical Guide
Sponsor: 3M Ortho
Released: 11/17/11
View Full Description »
Tools: Hemostat/Mosquito pliers and ligature director with a small head Ligature material: Sections of four modules of powerchain (not too thick; can use Rocky Mountain or Ormco) When to use it: Use the reverse double overtie when you need maximum seating force on the wire. Technique: Ligature is placed around the hook and the behind the occlusal wing before placing the wire. In contrast to a normal double overtie, the free modules are oriented to the occlusal. To overtie, seat the wire in the slot with a ligature director, stretch the elastic with the hemostat/mosquito pliers over the wire and fix the first module under the hook, using the ligature director to direct the powerchain. To remove the reverse double overtie, use a short dental explorer to pull the ligature from under the hook and remove.

Power Tie: Incognito™ Appliance System Clinical Guide
Sponsor: 3M Ortho
Released: 11/17/11
View Full Description »
Tools: Hemostat/Mosquito pliers, ligature director, short explorer Ligature material: Four modules of RMO gray powerchain When to use it: For angulation and torque control of the anterior teeth when using a ribbonwise archwire with a vertical insertion. The power tie can be used to correct torque and angulation problems with both full sized and under sized wires. Technique: Remove old elastic and bring the last module of the four modules around the bracket body. It is not necessary to remove the wire to do this. Start to make a reverse double overtie and stretch the elastic as much as possible using a hemostat. Bring both parts of the open module around the side to which the tooth is tipped and go under the hook with both sides. When correcting a torque problem is does not matter which side of the tie wing you go around. Take the short probe and catch the first module. Place the tip of the probe on the occlusal tie wing. Slide the elastic behind the tie wing.
