Review of Advanced Treatment Protocols for Complex Class II & III Cases

Review of Advanced Treatment Protocols for Complex Class II & III Cases

Oct 12, 2022

Join Dr. Ana-Maria Cantor live from Spain, when she presents Review of Advanced Treatment Protocols for Complex Class II & III Cases (1.25 CE) on October 12 at 7:30 pm central time.

This webinar will show the protocol to treat non extraction class II and III complex cases. Dr. Cantor will also explain an efficient way with excellent aesthetic results to treat the class III cases with missing lateral incisors.

Through 10 cases treated consecutively with the same biomechanics she will explain how with a simple and non invasive way the correction of the sagital problem of the patient is done at the beginning of the treatment with the Carriere Motion appliance (CMA). With this, a class I relationship is obtained in the posterior segments, distalizing them in block from canine to molar. Once the maxilla or mandible has the saggital problem corrected, the treatment continues with passive self ligating braces until its finishing.

The advantages of this technique:

  • Achieve a patient facial and profile harmony due to the occlusal plane change that accomplishes an anatomic and functional reposition of the mandible in reference to the maxilla with an added effect of an augmentation in the permeability of the airway condition.
  • Diminish the total treatment time with braces and aligners.
  • It gives an alternative to the class III patients that could be treated with surgery and/or extractions.
  • Avoid extractions or future complications in included canine cases due to lack of space.

Learning Objectives:

  • Simplify the class III cases treatment with missing lateral incisors.
  • Reduce the total treatment time in aligners.
  • To treat class II and class III cases in a simple and non invasive way.

Oct 27, 2022

Amy Demas presents "Let's Talk: Communicating WITH, not at Patients, Parents and Team" (1.0 CE) No one likes to be lectured or scolded.

Could it be that we missed the mark along the way and didn’t connect or communicate effectively? 

Sign up today to and learn more about body language, common language, and cooperative language to empower you and your teams to not only communicate better but listen well. 

In this presentation you will: 

  • Learn about body language and micro expressions to help you gain insights as to what is really being conveyed in a conversation. 
  • Obtain common language verbiage to use with patient and parents for greater cooperation and understanding. 
  • Gain insights in cooperative language to help navigate the tensions that naturally arise when working with others. 
  • Learn about listening skills to ensure we do more than hear someone speak but LISTEN to them well.

Orthognathic Surgery in the patient with TMJ pathology: An overview

Orthognathic Surgery in the patient with TMJ pathology: An overview

Feb 15, 2023

Dr. Jay Gibson (AAO member) and Dr. Daniel Perez (AAOMS member) present Orthognathic Surgery in the patient with TMJ pathology: An overview (1.25 CE).  The temporomandibular joint is the foundation for accurate and reproducible orthognathic surgery. Patients that have temporomandibular joint pathology or degeneration are more likely to have worse function, esthetics, pain reduction and stability when performing orthognathic surgery. Simultaneous TMJ and orthognathic surgery can address problems in the joint as well as the occlusion in one operation.

If concomitant temporomandibular joint surgery is executed with orthognathic surgery (TMJ disc repositioning, discectomy, total joint reconstruction, etc.), attention needs to be paid to the orthodontic set up, planning, sequencing, and execution.

The most relevant pearls and pitfalls learned by the speakers will be discussed, including indications, contraindications, orthodontic and surgical technique, complications, and outcomes of the different procedures. The intent is to share a step-by-step presentation with the experience acquired not only during the execution of this cases but also while teaching a young novice clinician both in the orthodontic and surgical realm.

  • Discuss the most common TMJ conditions that cause dentofacial deformities
  • Discuss the diagnosis, orthodontic and surgical management for the patient with condylar hyperplasia
  • Discuss the diagnosis, orthodontic and surgical management for the patient with condylar degeneration
  • How to prepare and orthodontically manage a patient with Total Joint prosthesis
