Dr. Marianna Evans and Dr. Miguel Hirschhaut share this online lecture dedicated to Dr. Slick Vanarsdall. Transverse dimension diagnosis and treatment is the base for sagital and vertical corrections. Most precise diagnosis on maxillary transverse deficiency is obtained through the CBCT. Miniscrew assisted rapid maxillary expansion (Marpe) or Surgical assisted maxillary expansion are the procedures of choice in skeletal mature patients presenting maxillary transverse deficiencies. Protocols with most common type of expander will be illustrated through clinical cases. Long term periodontal health and airways are addressed as part of this lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • How implementing the use of a CBCT when maxillary transverse deficiency is your diagnosis.
  • A review of case studies using the protocols that Dr. Miguel Hirschhaut has implemented during this procedure.
  • Finally, Dr. Evans and Dr. Hirschhaut cover long term periodontal and airway improvement that have been achieved during this treatment method.
