2018 Webinar - Facial Esthetics Oriented Treatment Planning with VTO and TADs


Credits: None available.

Orthodontic treatment outcome is primarily a result of the mechanotherapy and clinical management of the case. Perhaps, the major key to orthodontic treatment planning is to identify the direction and amount of dental movements required within each quadrant. Without sound objectives and proper planning, anchorage requirements could easily be overlooked. While cephalometric analyses are helpful in providing a rough estimate of skeletal and dental relationships, treatment goals need to be developed accordingly with the face. In this presentation, instead of using the mandibular incisor position as the primary criterion, the aim is to provide a facial esthetics oriented treatment approach using the maxillary incisor position as the starting point while the mandibular arch still serves as the diagnostic arch. In this context, virtual treatment objective (VTO) is a critical tool for anchorage planning and reinforcement together with the use of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) and other conventional mechanics. Secondly, it is aimed to present the importance of strategic TAD placement in their stability and overall efficiency throughout the treatment.

Course objectives:

1.  Obtain a working knowledge of facial-esthetics oriented treatment objectives

2.  Gain an appreciation for planning proper orthodontic tooth movement and anchorage control in each quadrant

3.  Apply anchorage reinforcement strategies accordingly with treatment objectives

2018 AAO Winter Conf - What to do When All Teeth are Impacted? The Challenge of CCD / Q & A Session: Chaushu & Becker


Credits: None available.

This presentation discusses the need for differential orthodontic treatment timing for Cleidocranial dysplasia. A customized design for an appliance that is able to provide anchorage while applying efficient directional mechanics, with only minor modifications to suit each of the several stages of the plan, will be described. Our experience with timing of the staged surgical exposures of the groups of unerupted teeth and the active role that the orthodontist must play in the procedure, will be related.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the appropriate time for each of the several orthodontic and surgical stages of treatment.
  • Design the orthodontic appliance that will provide adequate anchorage to actively erupt the impacted teeth.
  • Recognize the scope and the value for active participation of the orthodontist in the surgical episodes.

Impaction of maxillary canines ranges from 1-3%, with an associated 67% risk of resorption of adjacent teeth. The literature is brimming with studies investigating the efficacy of various measures intended to prevent, to intercept and/or to mitigate the severity of impaction of maxillary canine teeth. Timely extraction of the deciduous canines, the deciduous canines and deciduous first molars, space preparation, molar distalization and maxillary expansion may avoid impaction Nevertheless, the success of these approaches is dependent on the early diagnosis by the primary pediatric dentist. The lecture will overview the clinical and radiographic clues of incipient impactions and discuss the scientific evidence underlying the various treatment approaches.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the clinical and radiographic signs of incipient impaction.
  • Evaluate the proper timing for application of the preventive/interceptive approach.
  • Decide which is the most suitable preventive/interceptive approach in the particular case.

2018 AAO Winter Conf - Dental Transplants: What We Know


Credits: None available.

Autotransplantation of developing teeth can be applied to replace congenitally missing or traumatically lost teeth. Surgical uprighting (trans-alveolar transplantation) of is also an attractive option to treat severely impacted developing teeth. The key issues for successful implementation of tooth transplantation into clinical dentistry include proper donor selection and careful post-surgical management. The current state of knowldege and the perspectives for implementation of tooth transplantation into clinical dentistry will be presented during the lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Select patients in whom tooth transplantation can be applied.
  • Select teeth, which can serve as the best donors for tooth transplantation.

2018 AAO Annual Session - What's Missing on Early Treatment?


Credits: None available.

The controversies on early treatment seem to be coming to an end. The pendulum that regulates the initiation of orthodontic treatment and that has been swaying in different directions for many years seems to have been shifting towards an earlier start preferably in the late mixed dentition. Undoubtedly, there is much agreement as well as disagreement on what to treat or not to treat. What’s missing on timely Class I, Class II and Class Ill interceptive treatment? This program compiles new evidence on early-treatment that may be helpful in the decision-making process. We hope to be able to stir even more curiosity within each one and revisit ideas and concepts we execute as clinicians.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize and select ways to approach a developing malocclusion.
  • Discuss the do’s and dont’s of early Class II interventions.
  • Review a special protocol for early Class Ill treatment.
