Treatment Options in Maxillary Transferse Skeletal Deficiencies


Jan 23, 2016 8:15am ‐ Jan 23, 2016 9:00am

Description

The transverse dimension of the maxillomandibular complex must be evaluated, diagnosed and addressed in order to achieve stability following orthodontic/orthognathic correction. Orthopedic maxillary expansion (non-surgical) is effective and stable in the young population prior to sutural closure, and is not effective or stable in patients following sutural closure in the maxillofacial complex. During this presentation different treatment options for patients with maxillary transverse skeletal deficiencies will be illustrated and discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Diagnose maxillary transverse skeletal deficiency
  • List the different treatment options for maxillary transverse skeletal deficiency
  • Analyze the limitations, advantages and disadvantages of the different treatment options for maxillary transverse skeletal deficiency
