AS17B49D - Emerging Applications of 3D Printing in Treatment of Open Bite Malocclusion

Apr 25, 2017 8:00am ‐ Apr 25, 2017 8:30am


Successful treatment of open bite malocclusions depends upon a proper diagnosis and identification of the underlying etiology. This lecture will provide a brief overview of the dental and skeletal contexts in which open bite malocclusions may be viewed, and the development of appropriate treatment plans based upon the underlying etiologic factors. In addition, examples of applications of 3D printing technologies in the management of open bite malocclusions will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize and diagnose dental and skeletal open bite malocclusions.
  • Distinguish between orthodontic, surgical, and collaborative treatment approaches.
  • Discuss examples of the roles 3D printing can play in the treatment of open bite malocclusions.
