IAS Fixed Brace Certification Course - Hands-on

Including ClearSmile Aligner Light certification

Level 1: Theory and hands-on


ClearSmile Brace

The ClearSmile Brace only uses the highest quality low-visibility brackets and wires, set up using virtual 3D technology by highly trained technicians. The course has a precise, non-extraction approach to Anterior Alignment Orthodontics. It focuses on full orthodontic assessment to aid appropriate case selection and the use of unique tools: Spacewize+TM crowding calculator and ArchwizeTM planning reports as well as free Online Mentoring and Case Support all combined to deliver predictable outcomes and satisfied patients. ClearSmile Brace uses the latest digital 3D virtual planning technology to set up the prescribed treatment and provide tray-loaded brackets for an ideal and stress-free indirect bracket placement.

    Key features of ClearSmile Brace

    • Enhanced control over treatment.
    • Easy to understand and shorter pathway to proficiency.
    • ArchwizeTM simulations to ensure that expectations are met and consent gained.
    • No annual requirements: do as few or as many cases as you like.
    • Developed by leading dentists and orthodontists.
    • Lower lab costs that allows for more affordable treatments.
    • Quality training - both the hands-on course and ongoing online mentoring.

    ClearSmile Aligner Light

    The ClearSmile Aligner appliance is a series of transparent aligners used to correct malpositioned teeth. Custom made for each patient, the ClearSmile Aligner uses a small amount of precisely positioned force to gently and progressively correct dental misalignment. The ClearSmile Aligner works hand in hand with other IAS Academy appliances by using the same diagnostic approach. Each ClearSmile Aligner is usually worn for 22 hours per day for 10 – 14 days before switching to the next. The appliance will incrementally reposition the teeth into the desired final position until alignment is completed. Treatment times vary.
