AS22B18 - Long-term Evaluation of Class III Orthopedics Using Skeletal Anchorage

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

Credits: None available.


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.
