He concluded that the 2D lingual technique can often simplify lingual treatment although it does have its limitation and art is certainly the sentiment. eBrace The last speaker for the morn- ing session was Dr. Silvia Geron from Israel. Dr. Geron commonly uses eBrace in her clinical practice and wanted to share with the group her experience of the appliance. eBrace is a fully customised lingual appliance with a self- ligating option. The unique- ness of the appliance is: • its small size • comfortable fit • ease of early engagement of all the brackets • the built-in torque in the bracket base and slot which reduces need for bending the archwire Dr. Geron highlighted that the key to success is to man- age your patients’ expecta- tions and to think like an or- thodontist not like the system! Dr. Didier Fillion was next to take the centre stage and he took the time to show how new advances were being incorpo- rated into the Orapix system with the use of CT scans and intra-oral scanning. He dis- cussed openly his way of ‘less is more’ and doing it ‘my way’. His passion for a straightwire system came across strongly and this is what he is working towards in his practice. Advances Last but not least was Dr. Gi- useppe Scuzzo, whose passion and expertise in the lingual technique thrilled the audi- ence. Dr. Scuzzo, in his talk, set out to debate why more or- thodontists are not using lin- gual appliances in their every- day practice. He discussed the advances of appliances, where we now have aesthetics, com- fort and biomechanical ef- ficiency and demonstrated this with the amazing clini- cal results he achieves with lingual appliances. Along the way he dropped in clinical tips such as distilisation of upper first molars using the modi- fied Pendulum appliance and concluded that lingual appli- ances should be the appliance of choice in every orthodontic practice! The BLOS Spring meeting was a success. We were in awe of the new technology being incorporated into lingual ap- pliance systems and left feel- ing motivated and enthused to try it out!
