news 92nd EOS Congress2 According to a recently published report, the global invisible braces market is expected to grow at a 12.16 per cent compound annual growth rate from 2016 to 2021. The report analyses the development of the ceramic, lingual and clear align- ers segment in ten major countries and further shows that the process will be mainly driven by technolog- ical innovations and increasing de- mand for invisible braces among the adult population with aesthetic con- cerns about fixed orthodontic appli- ances. Over the past decade, improved technological advancements, par- ticularly digital technologies, and increasing awareness of aesthetic alternatives to conventional braces have led to growing demand for or- thodontic treatment with aligners. In addition, rising disposable in- come has resulted in increasing per capita health care expenditure, which has further led to a growing focus on health care, thereby in- creasing the demand for invisible braces specifically among the adult population. While the market has witnessed a strong foothold in North America and Europe, rapid growth in the de- mand for invisible braces is expected to be fuelled by the emerging mar- kets in Asia Pacific and Latin Amer- ica through India and Brazil, whereas rising dental tourism in Mexico and Thailand will continue to contribute towards the invisible braces market. Among the leading companies operating in the market are Align Technology, Ormco, DENTSPLY In- ternational, 3M and ClearCorrect. The 152-page report, titled “Global invisible braces market: Trends, opportunities and forecasts (2016–2021)”, was published on 1 February. It can be purchased at The 2016 European Carriere Sym- posium, presented by Henry Schein Orthodontics, will take place from 22 to 24 September in Barcelona in Spain, at the five-star seaside hotel W Barcelona. Designed by world-fa- mous architect Ricardo Bofill and shaped like a large mirrored sail, the spectacular venue is situated on the coastline with direct access to the beach and boasts 360° panoramic views. Under the theme of “The future of orthodontics”, the highly-anticipated premier event will feature lectures on the most progressive topics in today’s orthodontic industry. The programme will begin with a welcome reception and dinner, an opportunity for partic- ipants to meet and socialise with the speakers and other dentists who are attending. Dr Luis Carrière will present a paper titled “Innovations in self-ligation orthodontics” and will discuss the many benefits of Carriere Motion appliances. The programme chairman, Dr Da- vid Paquette, will give a lecture titled “An inside view of orthodon- tic products of the future”. Additional featured symposium speakers will include a host of vision- aries in the field, such as Drs Sean Carlson, Louis Chmura, Scott Frey, Francesco Garino and John Kaku. As testimony to the relevance and value of the European Carriere Symposium, after last year’s event, attendee Dr Zvi Kennet praised the symposium: “The clinical presenta- tions were excellent and I was sur- prised at how much I learnt despite the fact that I was already a Carriere Motion user. I can’t wait to imple- ment the new procedures based on what I have learnt this weekend. Great job in organizing the meeting!” “We’ve brought together some of the best, most progressive minds in orthodontics today for this enlighten- ing event,” remarked Don Tuttle, Vice President and General Manager of Henry Schein Orthodontics. “We look forward to joining our attending colleagues to share exciting ideas and solutions.” Attendees are encouraged to ar- rive a day or two prior to the sympo- sium to experience La Mercè, a daz- zling cultural event held each year in Barcelona.
