New Frontiers in the Early Treatment of Class III Malocclusion
This presentation will evaluate the new therapeutic options in the early treatment of Class III malocclusion. In particular, the dentoskeletal effects produced by alternating rapid maxillary expansion and constriction followed by face-mask protraction during the early developmental phases will be analyzed.
Relate the clinical management of new therapeutic approaches to Class III malocclusion
Evaluate evidence-based results on the effects induced by early treatment of Class III malocclusion
Recognize the role of treatment timing in the effectiveness of orthopedic therapy of Class III malocclusion.
Advances in Regional Corticotomies
Alveolar corticotomies have been used to accelerate orthodontic movement. This presentation will discuss the effects of Regional Alveolar Corticotomies (RAC) on the alveolar bone structures and how it affects orthodontic tooth movement. Clinical examples of the use of RAC to potentiate the correction of complex malocclusions will be shown. Finally, the periodontal, endodontic and orthodontic effects of orthodontic tooth movement associated to RAC will be presented and discussed.
Discuss how Regional Corticotomies may be used to potentiate orthodontic tooth movement
Report on the periodontal, endodontic and orthodontic RAC effects
Illustrate the clinical application of RAC in adult orthodontics.
