Digital dentistry can assist us in many ways, by assessing space and measuring the amount of crowd- ing in cases, predicting treatment outcomes, assisting patients’ com- munication but also storing models digitally and treatment planning. With the introduction of 3D Print- ing in dentistry, the opportunities in orthodontics have expanded from digital impression taking, to devel- oping virtual treatment plans and 3D printing of dental models. The Digital Orthodontics Symposium il- lustrated the necessity for orthodon- tists to look-into and highly consider digitalizing their working ways to save time, money and provide more effi cient and effective treatments for the patients.

Orthodontic treatment is widely- used in preventing and correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaws, by the use of braces. A novel method in orthodontic bracket bonding, de- veloped by the Deb group from the Tissue Engineering & Biophotonics Division at King’s College London, could eliminate enamel damage. This is a frequent occurrence on debonding including white spot lesion formation and chipping or cracking of enamel during bracket removal after orthodontic treat- ment. Introducing the PER system in ortho- dontics, which embodies the basic principles of the widely-used acid- etch technique which is designed to enable orthodontists to use metal brackets, and which now addresses the need to meet growing preference for ceramic brackets that are clear and provide an invisible appear- ance, which usually results in more enamel damage on removal of the An international patent has been published on this know-how, which is expected to provide a revolution- ary leap in orthodontic bracket bonding. The study was conducted in the Deb laboratories by Ali Ibra- him, an orthodontist and a PhD stu- dent at the Dental Institute at King’s with support from Professor Van Thompson. Professor Sanjukta Deb explained “Orthodontists will em- brace the technique since there are less clinical steps, no specialist train- ing involved and in fact, due to no ad- hesive remnants left on enamel, this will eliminate the need for enamel polishing after bracket removal.” King’s College London London, United Kingdom Tel.: +44 (0)20 7836 5454 W:
