3-Year Program in Orthodontics related to Functional Occlusion and the Cranio-Mandibular System: The Modern Approach to any kind of Malocclusion and Dysfunction
Starting: March 13 - 16, 2024

Course Overview

Orthodontic Course Sato Orthodontics

Non Extraction Non Orthognathic Surgery Orthodontics

In modern dentistry, orthodontics has become inseparably linked to restorative dentistry, prosthetics, and periodontics to facilitate the treatment condition of these disciplines. At the same time there is a significant increase in dysfunctional patients consulting dental practices and presenting deteriorating dentitions, failing dental treatment, or developing severe physical symptoms.

These patients are looking for dentists who are able to provide answers and treatment options for the dysfunctional condition of their teeth and jaws.  Under this aspect, Orthodontics in the “Sato way” stands out as a fundamental concept for the general and orthodontic practice to treat dysfunctional patients and to achieve predictably functional stable treatment outcomes in all patients.

This Program will give you Completely New Treatment Options

Orthodontics is always a full mouth rehabilitation and therefore needs to be diagnosed and treatment planned in this perspective.

At the same time orthodontics is also the most minimally invasive treatment option, which makes it very valuable as pre-restorative treatment.

And orthodontic treatment can achieve treatment goals, which are impossible to achieve with any other dental disciplines, which is successfully treating dysfunctional patients into a functional state.

Modern Occlusion and a Paradigm Shift in Development and Growth

The IDEA orthodontic course is an exceptional program which thoroughly teaches the theoretical and practical aspects of Prof. Sato’s Concept of Cranio-Mandibular Orthodontics.

This orthodontic concept is based on Prof. Sato’s research on growth and occlusal plane. The alterations of occlusal plane and posterior vertical dimension leading to mandibular adaptation are the key aspects of this concept.

The treatment approach combines diagnostics and treatment planning with modern occlusion and a paradigm shift in understanding development and growth. The use of the multiloop (MEAW) and Gunmetal wires facilitate achieving the treatment goals.

This comprehensive approach is making “Sato”- Orthodontics the most powerful treatment option in dentistry because it can achieve treatment results which are impossible for any other orthodontic or interdisciplinary discipline.
