Description

Dr. Marianna Evans (1.25 CE) for Avoiding premolar extractions with TAD-assisted expansion protocol

Conventional tooth-supported palatal expanders can at times produce unfavorable periodontal outcomes. The introduction of the temporary skeletal anchorage into rapid maxillary expansion appliances eliminates orthopedic forces applied directly to the teeth. In doing so, orthodontists can avoid adverse periodontal effects, achieve required skeletal maxillary expansion in non-growing patients without surgery and control skeletal and dental post-expansion movements in three dimensions.

Premolar extractions are often necessary in the situations of severe crowding with objectives to minimize periodontal attachment loss and optimize esthetics. This webinar will discuss TAD-assisted expansion protocol to allow periodontally acceptable non-extraction therapy.

Learning Objectives:

  • To discuss the maxillary and mandibular crowding - skeletal perspective.
  • To discuss periodontal perspective of addressing crowding with maxillary skeletal expansion versus premolar extraction therapy
  • To review extreme crowded cases treated with TAD-assisted expansion protocol - paradigm shift in orthodontics.
