2019 Webinar - Advantage of Treating Deep Bite Malocclusions with Clear Aligners

Credits: None available.

Managing the vertical dimension during orthodontic treatment remains a challenge to the treating orthodontist, despite the many advances in techniques and appliances being used. Clear aligner therapy appears to help control, as well as aid in, opening up deep bite malocclusions with consistency, mostly due to the occlusal coverage by the aligners. Dr. Daher will show clinical cases and will share tips and techniques to help use the Clear aligners more effectively.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize deep bite cases that are ideally treated with clear aligners
  • Treatment plan the deep bite malocclusion using auxiliaries and adjuncts along with aligners
  • Recognize the benefits of eliminating secondary effects due to aligner biomechanics

A bilingual native of Montreal, Dr. Sam Daher received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from McGill University (Montreal) with distinction in 1994 then practiced general dentistry for a few years before returning to Université de Montréal to complete a Masters’ degree and specialty in orthodontics. He currently lives and practices in Vancouver, Canada. Dr. Daher is an active member of both the American & Canadian Association of Orthodontists (AAO & CAO) and a Fellow of the World Federation of Orthodontists (WFO).

2018 Webinar - Is Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders Another Deja Vu Of Temporomandibular Disorders In Orthodontics?

Credits: None available.

Recently, there has been much attention towards sleep-related breathing disorders (SBD) among orthodontic communities.  Children with SBD can often develop distinctive facial characteristics.  SBD in adults can result in serious morbidity and mortality. Treating these patients presents unique opportunities for orthodontists to collaborate with other medical specialties to improve a patient's health and treatment outcome.  However, there are many opinions and claims related to this topic without proper research data. This webinar will discuss the most current scientific evidences regarding the relations between various controversial orthodontic issues and sleep breathing disorders.

Learning objectives:

  1. Recognize the pathophysiology of SBD.
  2. Learn how to evaluate potential SBD patients.
  3. Apply the evidence based practice to deal with SBD patients.

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.
