AS17B62B - Palatal TAD-supported Appliance Treatment in Class II Malocclusions


Apr 25, 2017 2:30pm ‐ Apr 25, 2017 2:50pm


Description

Class II malocclusions are found in approximately 20% of the U.S. population and are one of the most common manifestations observed on patients seeking orthodontic treatment. Treatment modalities involve fixed appliances with a Class II corrector, Class II elastics, extraoral appliances, fixed or removable intraoral appliances, extraction therapy, or a surgical-orthodontic approach. Class II elastics, extraoral appliances, and intraoral removable appliances are dependent on patient compliance.

This lecture will demonstrate the use of a compliance-free Palatal-TAD supported appliance to correct a Class II malocclusion without any side effects on the mandibular dentition.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss treatment options for Class II malocclusions.
  • Demonstrate a compliance-free treatment alternative.
  • Evaluate the use of a palatal-TAD supported appliance for molar distalization.
