Lingual Orthodontics - Advanced

Postgraduate Certificate

2 weeks full time advanced classroom and clinical training



With the introduction of completely customised lingual appliances, lingual orthodontics has changed dramatically. Many orthodontists have successfully integrated lingual orthodontics into their everyday practice thereby proposing new treatment options to their patients.

CBMDA proud to introduce this two-week course focuses on lingual mechanics, highlighting the difference between lingual and labial treatment. 

The various stages of a lingual treatment using totally individual lingual appliances are addressed in detail and supported, at appropriate progress points, by hands-on exercises with typodonts. The aim of the course is to provide optimum preparation for the successful integration of lingual orthodontics into the daily running of a practice. 



2 x 5 days intensive course covering everything you need to know about lingual orthodontics with our CBMDA Specialist Orthodontists. Mornings will be theory session and in the afternoon, we will move to clinics treating our lingual patients. Ideal for Orthodontists who want to start cases under guidance and for those who already have experience and want to develop.
