A Historical Perspective of Surgical-Orthodontic Management of Dentofacial Deformities: Where We Were, Where We Are, Where We Are Going

Jan 22, 2016 8:15am ‐ Jan 22, 2016 9:00am


Surgery First: Indications and Contraindications from the Surgeon’s and Orthodontist’s Perspectives

Jan 22, 2016 9:00am ‐ Jan 22, 2016 10:00am

Surgery first has revived as a surgical approach in orthognathic surgery to reduce treatment duration and eliminate the accentuation of the dentofacial deformity that occurs with presurgical orthodontics. Skeletal anchorage, along with the use of surgical rigid internal fixation and 3-D virtual planning, has made this approach more feasible. Research studies have shown a reduction in treatment duration of 30 - 70%.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the inefficiencies in the Conventional Orthognathic Surgery Sequence
  • Discuss the integration and coordination need in the use orthodontic and surgical techniques to obtain a successful outcome using a Surgery First treatment plan
  • Describe the use of CAD-CAM Technology in Surgery First


Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Update on Orthodontics and Surgery

Jan 22, 2016 10:30am ‐ Jan 22, 2016 11:30am


Heads or Tails: Oral Appliance or Maxillomandibular Advancement for Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Jan 22, 2016 2:00pm ‐ Jan 22, 2016 3:00pm


Treatment Options in Maxillary Transferse Skeletal Deficiencies

Jan 23, 2016 8:15am ‐ Jan 23, 2016 9:00am

The transverse dimension of the maxillomandibular complex must be evaluated, diagnosed and addressed in order to achieve stability following orthodontic/orthognathic correction. Orthopedic maxillary expansion (non-surgical) is effective and stable in the young population prior to sutural closure, and is not effective or stable in patients following sutural closure in the maxillofacial complex. During this presentation different treatment options for patients with maxillary transverse skeletal deficiencies will be illustrated and discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Diagnose maxillary transverse skeletal deficiency
  • List the different treatment options for maxillary transverse skeletal deficiency
  • Analyze the limitations, advantages and disadvantages of the different treatment options for maxillary transverse skeletal deficiency


Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT): The Direction is "Clear"

Jan 23, 2016 9:00am ‐ Jan 23, 2016 9:45am

Many complex interdisciplinary problems involve deficiencies or discrepancies in the dentoalveolar complex that can prolong treatment time and compromise overall outcomes. Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT), in combination with skeletal anchorage, can shorten treatment times, modify vertical relationships and enhance the development of the arch form, alveolar bone and soft tissue to ideally address these issues involving the dentoalveolar complex. Special focus will be given to utilizing high-tech clear aligners instead of traditional orthodontic appliances to add a new and exciting dimension to SFOT while significantly increasing patient treatment acceptance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe interdisciplinary diagnostics and treatment planning for the SFOT patient
  • Combine hard and soft tissue grafting with selective corticotomies
  • Utilize skeletal anchorage with SFOT to modify vertical relationships
