Airway-centered Orthodontic Diagnosis & Treatment for Pediatric Patients

May 21, 2022 2:10pm ‐ May 21, 2022 2:40pm

Mouth breathing is one of the most common clinical manifestations of pediatric SDB. Children whose mouth breathing remains untreated may develop long, narrow faces, high palatal vaults, dental malocclusion, gummy smiles etc. because of orofacial muscle imbalance. SDB in children has been associated with a variety of comorbidities, including failure to thrive, hypertension, attention deficit disorder, enuresis etc. Orthodontists who have the knowledge of SDB can play an important role in the early diagnosis and treatment of pediatric SDB. It is recommended that the orthodontist perform a clinical risk assessment for SDB. Orthodontists may be involved in the treatment of pediatric SDB by correcting the underlying dental and skeletal deformities. When making the orthodontic treatment plan, orthodontists should account for children’s upper airway condition.

Learning Objectives:

  • Consider children’s upper airway condition when making the orthodontic treatment plan.
  • Recognize that children whose mouth breathing remains untreated may develop long, narrow faces, high palatal vaults, dental malocclusion, gummy smiles etc. because of orofacial muscle imbalance.
  • Recognize that SDB in children has been associated with a variety of comorbidities, including failure to thrive, hypertension, attention deficit disorder, enuresis etc.

But clinical options to correct the "reverse smile" in adult Skeletal Class III patients, especially during camouflage treatment, is limited. The speaker will introduce proper diagnosis and clinical management tips including vertical control through clockwise rotation of the mandible, A-P control along with segmental movement, and application of unique extraction schemes that can be applied to improve the reverse smile in adults skeletal Class IIIs will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Diagnose the complex characteristics of adult class III malocclusion with reverse smile.
  • Identify non-surgical treatment modalities to improve adult class III malocclusion.
  • Recognize the clinical indications for active vertical control through clockwise rotation of the mandible to improve the reverse smile.

Orthodontic Treatment of Skeletal Class II Open Bite Using TADs

May 21, 2022 2:10pm ‐ May 21, 2022 2:40pm

By using TADs, many patients who needed orthognathic surgery were resolved only with orthodontic treatment. Dr. Kim will share the clinical experience gained by encountering various cases.

In particular, he will present the answers to the following questions with information that will be helpful for orthodontists who want to try this for the first time or those who have tried several times but do not get satisfactory results or have failed.

1. Which method is better to use? Various methods have been tried, and among them, the safest and most reliable way is introduced.
2. What is the frequent causes of the failures?
3. To what extent can it be solved without orthognathic surgery?
4. Methods to overcome barriers encountered in the clinical process
5. How to achieve long-term stability?

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify good indications and to perform treatment of skeletal Class II open bite using TADs.
  • Recognize the reliable methods of treatment with TADs.
  • Solve clinical difficulties for each step they may encounter while implementing this method.

Accuracy and reliability of a fully automated landmark identification system on cone beam computed tomography

May 21, 2022 2:20pm ‐ May 21, 2022 2:40pm

Medical imaging continues to play an increasing role in health care and is an integral part of medicine and dentistry. Recent technological advancements have led to the development of fully automated landmark identification (ALI) systems capable of tracing Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of an ALI system as a tool for automatic landmark location compared to human judges.

Learning Objectives:

  • To identify what landmarks are the most valid and reliable when tracing a CBCT amongst trained professionals.
  • To evaluate whether a computer can locate the landmarks as well as a human.
  • To show that there could be beneficial uses of the autonomous landmark identification systems.

How does Alendronate affect orthodontic tooth movement in osteogenesis imperfecta: an in-vivo study on a mice model

May 21, 2022 2:40pm ‐ May 21, 2022 3:00pm

In addition to bone deformities, patients with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) have a higher index of orthodontic treatment need than controls. Patients with OI have severe malocclusions with reverse overjet, open bite, and require orthodontic treatment. Bisphosphonates are the most common therapeutic agents used in OI patients. However, the current literature lacks information regarding the effects of orthodontic tooth movement in Osteogenesis Imperfecta under the influence of Bisphosphonates. This lecture will answer the following questions with male and female OI mice. Can orthodontic tooth movement be performed safely in OI? How Alendronate affects orthodontic tooth movement in an OI mice model as compared to saline? How does the alveolar bone modeling/remodeling occur in an OI mice model with and without the treatment with alendronate?

Learning Objectives:

  • To show that there is reduced orthodontic tooth movement and increased hyalinization zones in an OI mice model with alendronate as compared to saline.
  • To demonstrate that alveolar bone modeling/remodeling in reduced and higher bone volume is observed with alendronate treatment.
  • To assess that the intensity of collagen fibers of the periodontal ligament is higher in the alendronate male and female mice compared with saline male and female OI mice.

Long-term Evaluation of Class III Orthopedics Using Skeletal Anchorage

May 21, 2022 2:45pm ‐ May 21, 2022 3:15pm

Class III skeletal malocclusions are among the most difficult cases to treat in orthodontics and often require orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. The use of skeletal anchorage in the treatment of Class III malocclusion is becoming more popular in clinical practice. Bone Anchored Maxillary Protraction (BAMP) has been shown to effectively protract the maxilla and limit mandibular growth and in many instances, reduce the need for orthognathic surgery in this patient population. What do we know about the long-term effects of BAMP on the maxilla and mandible? Is it stable and how will continued mandibular growth in Class III patients affect future outcomes? This lecture will discuss the results of a long-term 3D study evaluating the skeletal and stability of BAMP orthopedics.

Learning Objectives:

  • Implement retention protocol for Class III BAMP.
  • Evaluate long-term skeletal changes in the maxilla, mandible, and condyles with BAMP.
  • Select Class III cases with the best chance of long-term success.
