The Carriere Motion Appliance in Class II Correction

Apr 22, 2017 1:15pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 1:45pm

Dr. Jim McNamara has used a wide variety of appliances, both fixed and removable, in the management of patients with Class II occlusal relationships. His current focus is a prospective clinical study of the Carriere Motion appliance carried out in conjunction with developer of this treatment approach, Dr. Luis Carriere. The results of this study as well as the specific protocol used will be described in detail.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define how the Carriere Motion appliance can be used in the treatment of Class II Malocclusion.
  • Manage the skeletal and dental treatment effects produced by the appliance as observed cephalometrically.
  • Analyze the details of the Carriere Motion treatment protocol.

Minimizing Esthetic and Functional Risk through POPA

Apr 22, 2017 1:45pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 2:15pm

This innovative periodontal augmentation procedure, combining regenerative periodontal therapy with simultaneous orthodontic treatment, enables the orthodontist to minimize potential iatrogenic risk factors often associated with orthodontic therapy. Favorably positioned teeth, plus an enhanced muco-gingival complex, facilitates ideal and predictable post treatment esthetics and function.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify iatrogenic risk factors associated with orthodontic therapy.
  • Describe etiological issues contributing to these risk factors.
  • Prescribe appropriate hard and soft tissue grafting therapies to minimize the various risk factors, for long term post treatment success.

Simple and Innovative Method in Class II Correction

Apr 22, 2017 1:45pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 2:15pm

In treatment of class II cases the palatal plate is a highly effective appliance, which can be easily placed and managed by orthodontists. Scientific evidence demonstrated that the application of Modified C-Palatal Plate (MCPP) resulted in successful treatment outcomes by efficient molar distalization with a near-bodily movement. A creative and innovative approach for Class II correction using MCPP will be discussed including biomechanics and practical guidelines. Clinical pearls and a simple management of MCPP including step-by-step placement procedures with use of a jig will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the indications of the modified C-palatal plate (MCPP) in class II corrections.
  • Illustrate the step-by-step chair-side procedures required to incorporate the MCPP in orthodontic practices.
  • Recognize the pros and cons of the MCPP and manage maxillary distalization aided by the MCPP with clinical excellence.

Treatment Planning of Asymmetries

Apr 22, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 2:45pm

A classification of asymmetries will be presented. Three main categories will be considered which are dentoalveolar, functional and structural/skeletal. Under dentoalveolar asymmetries, anterior, posterior and a combination of the two will be discussed. Under functional asymmetries, cases will be reviewed with functional side shifts from centric relation to centric occlusion. And lastly, structural/skeletal asymmetries in the mandible and the maxilla will be presented. A variety of cases will be diagnosed, treatment planned and a summary of their treatment will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  • Classify asymmetry cases as they present to their office.
  • Diagnosis a variety of asymmetry cases.
  • Treatment plan asymmetry cases.

Preadolescent Orthodontics: When, Why and How

Preadolescent Orthodontics: When, Why and How

Apr 22, 2017 2:15pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 2:45pm

The timing of treatment for different malocclusions remains a controversial clinical issue despite the considerable volume of literature on this topic over the past years. Clinical decisions such as the optimal time to start treatment are inevitably difficult, especially in preadolescents, because of the variability between patients, the uncertainty about growth, risk of trauma, psychological needs and treatment response. The purpose of my presentation will be to show when, why and how preadolescence orthodontics should be performed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify orthodontic problems that can and should be treated prematurely.
  • Evaluate how these malocclusions can affect a child’s quality of life.
  • Recognize the possible effective and efficient orthodontic solutions in preadolescent orthodontics.

Goal Oriented Treatment Planning with Corticotomy Facilitated Orthodontics

Goal Oriented Treatment Planning with Corticotomy Facilitated Orthodontics

Apr 22, 2017 2:15pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 2:45pm

Conventional orthodontic tooth movement is restrained by the presence or absence of the surrounding alveolar bone. Combining orthodontics with selective alveolar decortication and bone augmentation increases the thickness of the alveolar trough, allowing for a wider range of tooth movements. Indications for applying this combined technique are derived from goal-oriented treatment planning, specific orthodontic biomechanics and sequencing. Case selection, proposed direction and amount of tooth movement, and treatment timing must be considered in order to achieve the most favorable outcomes with this combined surgical-orthodontic technique.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize how alveolar decortication and bone grafting combined with orthodontics allows for a wider range of tooth movements.
  • Illustrate creative ways to design orthodontic biomechanics.
  • Coordinate treatment timing and sequencing when utilizing this interdisciplinary treatment plan.

Gimcracks, Geegaws and Gimmicks: Distinctions in Search of a Difference

Apr 22, 2017 2:15pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 2:45pm

In today’s orthodontic marketplace, a wide variety of Class II treatments jostle for attention, each promising new, improved, and more salable techniques. A pledge to “work with growth” is a common, assuasive rationale. Unfortunately, both for the clinician and the patient, our attempts to grow bone have come to naught and now boil down to making use of whatever the individual pattern of mandibular growth has in store. To this end, all treatments must in some way control the movement of teeth. Therein lies the rub. The canard that people like faces that are stuffed full of teeth commonly leads to an over-reliance on non-extraction treatments and the various “advances” that have served to ratchet the dentition ever more forward. Just as all roads are said to lead to Rome; all roads that lead to well treated Class II malocclusions (that is, results achieved without “blowing” mandibular anchorage) must take a variety of routes to and through the upper dentition. Fixed or functional, early or late, the details are surprisingly similar.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the similarity among the various contemporary Class II treatments.
  • Identify treatments whose advertised mode of action is at odds with common sense and contemporary concepts of craniofacial biology.
  • Distinguish between practice management decisions and biological imperatives encountered in planning the treatment of Class II malocclusions.

Leveling the Occlusal Plane to Solve Vertical Problems

Apr 22, 2017 3:00pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 3:35pm

Vertical problems such as anterior open bites and or deep overbites can become some of the most difficult cases to treat. Most of the biomechanics in these cases have focused on the wrong movements, either molar intrusion for open bite or incisor intrusion for deep over bite cases, many times using a variety of complicated and invasive auxiliaries. This lecture will demonstrate through clinical cases a simple biomechanics to solve these vertical problems focused on leveling the occlusal plane.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the role of the occlusal plane in the vertical plane.
  • Compare different types of biomechanics to solve vertical problems.
  • Manage the most common open bite and deep over bite cases through out leveling the occlusal plane.

The Importance and Methods of Space Gain in the Maxillary Arch

Apr 22, 2017 3:00pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 3:30pm

The need for early treatment has been called into question, and I feel that this has already been well discussed. Nevertheless, there are no arguments that rule out early treatment in specific individual cases. Partial early treatment is not viewed as problematic, for example, in cases of molar crossbite, impacted teeth, or congenitally missing teeth, or in patients with cleft palate or other anomalies. In this lecture, I would like to consider these issues together.

Learning Objectives:

  • Consider the role of Gubernacular canal in the occurrence of impacted canine.
  • Recognize the possibilities of the skeletal effects of rapid palatal expansion treatment.
  • Distinguish the best way to use the face-bow headgear treatment to correct Class II molar relationship.
