The presentation will focus on the most recommended esthetic and invisible brackets, archwire alloys and sections, as well as clinical tricks to achieve the best outcome for the majority of our patients. Attention will be given to the working arch mechanics, use of attachments and elastics, with much consideration for the finishing and detailing procedures and tools.
