2020 Winter Conference - Silver-Bullet Breakthrough? Mandibular Autorotation Concept (MAC) Surgery: Rationales and Outcomes


Credits: None available.

Osteoarthritis of the temporomandibular joint causes marked retrusion of the mandible and open bite. To date, several surgical orthodontic treatment modalities have been performed, but prognosis and postoperative stability are poor, because of relapse and condylar resorption. Mandibular autorotation concept (MAC) surgery performed at our hospital is a broad term to describe the series of orthognathic surgery utilizing an intentional mandibular autorotation. In this presentation, I would like to share with you the backgrounds and effectiveness of the MAC surgery with the basic and clinical data.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the backgrounds of orthognathic treatment of mandibular retrusion and open bite due to condylar changes.
  • Recognize the rationales to propose the orthognathic treatment using mandibular autorotation concept (MAC) surgery.
  • Evaluate the reproducibility and stability of orthognathic treatment using MAC surgery.

2020 Winter Conference - Open Bite: Are We Treating the Right Causes?


Credits: None available.

Anterior open bite is considered one of the malocclusions of most difficult treatment, especially regarding stability. The literature presents many researches on this subject, but with controversial information. There are disagreements on the definition of open bite, its etiology and types of treatment. Possibly, the lack of consensus on the etiology of the anterior open bite may have led to different types of treatment and can be the explanation for the high level of relapse of this malocclusion. The purpose of this presentation is to review the concepts of anterior open bite focusing on etiology, treatment methods and their stability and present criteria for the diagnosis and treatment of this malocclusion, based in its etiology, with examples of treated cases, stable for over 10 years.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the etiological factors for anterior open bite.
  • Analyze different tongue positions at rest and its implication on open bite treatment.
  • Evaluate the importance of function on open bite treatment stability.

2020 Winter Conference - Form and Function: Anterior Open Bites and the Role of Oral Myofunctional Therapy


Credits: None available.

Abnormal tongue positioning is associated with open bites as well as other aspects of malocclusions. Having correct tongue posture and activity are important aspects of successful orthodontic treatment and long term stability. With orthodontic treatment of open bites, the tongue’s environment is changed with the intent that tongue positioning will become normalized. With myofunctional therapy, training exercises are used to correct tongue positioning, which can then lead to improved structure of the mouth. While each approach can have positive treatment results, this presentation will focus on evidence related to treatment outcomes when both form and function are simultaneously addressed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Comprehend the developmental relationship of tongue posture to anterior open bites.
  • Recognize potential limitations of orthodontic treatment if tongue function remains abnormal.
  • Appreciate the synergistic impact of combining orthodontic and myofunctional therapy in achieving long term success when correcting open bite malocclusions.

2020 Winter Conference - Contemporary Multiloop Edgewise Archwire (MEAW) Technique: Old-fashioned but Useful


Credits: None available.

In 1967, Young H. Kim created the multiloop edgewise archwire (MEAW) to treat open bite malocclusions, which he achieved with great efficiency. Subsequently, Prof. Young-il Chang (Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea) studied the MEAW mechanics to establish the principles. Young H. Kim applied it to all types of malocclusions. MEAW can be constructed with stainless steel 0.016 × 0.022 (bracket 0.018 inch slot) or 018 x 0.022 or 0.017 × 0.025 ss (bracket 0.022 inch slot). The MEAW requires wire bending, which seems very old-fashioned, but it is still very useful in many cases. This lecture will present both old and contemporary cases allowing the audience to easily understand the MEAW techniques.

Learning Objectives:

  • Familiarize yourself with the MEAW technique, especially for open bite.
  • Identify the indications and contraindication of MEAW techniques.
  • Evaluate the procedures of MEAW fabrication and application.

2020 Winter Conference - Buccal Shelf (BS) Screws for Class III Openbite Correction


Credits: None available.

Common anterior open bite corrections include extractions and a variety of appliances, such as, high-pull headgear, bite blocks, and elastics. In more severe cases, orthognathic surgery is required to correct the skeletal malocclusion. While surgery proves to be a reliable treatment option, many patients reject it for the prohibitive cost, pain and long recovery time. Recently, TADs have allowed orthodontists to treat some of these patients without orthognathic surgery through intrusion of the posterior mandibular molars and rotate the occlusal plane. They provide a treatment alternative for mild-to-moderate open bite cases without other skeletal contributing factors. This lecture will demonstrate how to properly identify and eliminate the etiology of anterior open bite and create effective strategies to correct it with buccal shelf (BS) TADs and extractions. After this lecture, you’ll be able to apply BS screws in your daily practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the etiology of anterior open bite.
  • Articulate the biomechanics of BS screws in the correction of anterior open bite.
  • Locate the buccal shelf and explain steps of BS screw placement.

2020 Winter Conference - Anterior Openbite Correction: Surgery vs. TADs


Credits: None available.

Anterior open bite (AOB) can be corrected by orthognathic surgery or orthodontic treatment. Severe skeletal, facial, and functional problems should be corrected by orthognathic surgery, but combining cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and temporary anchorage devices (TADs) can provide an efficient and accurate way to correct AOB. Nowadays, by using TADs, we can expand orthodontic boundaries. In this lecture, various clinical applications of TADs and orthognathic surgery will be discussed in challenging AOB cases along with new American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) Scenario-based Oral Clinical Examination domains. After the lecture, clinicians will be able to treat and finish anterior open bite cases more efficiently and successfully while minimizing the chance of relapse.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how to prepare the new ABO Scenario-based Oral Clinical Examination in diagnosis and treatment planning, treatment implementation and management, and critical analysis and outcomes assessment in AOB cases.
  • Identify clinical situations in which CBCT imaging and TADs are beneficial in AOB correction.
  • Evaluate clinical applications and biomechanical considerations of orthognathic surgery vs. TADs in challenging AOB cases.
