AS17B17A - Orthodontic Camouflage Treatment: Modified MEAW vs Skeletal Anchorage


Apr 23, 2017 8:00am ‐ Apr 23, 2017 8:30am


Description

For decades, the Multiloop Edgewise Archwire (MEAW) technique and its modification has been used for camouflage treatment of mild skeletal Class III malocclusion in patients who do not want to undergo jaw-surgery. However, the success of treatment depends largely on patient compliance in wearing intermaxillary elastics. Therefore, in patients with low compliance, the use of skeletal anchorage has become increasingly popular. In this lecture, various treatment alternatives using modified MEAW and skeletal anchorage for adult Class III patients will be presented and discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the effect of the modified MEAW technique in the camouflage treatment of skeletal Class III malocclusion.
  • Evaluate the effect of the skeletal anchorage technique in the camouflage treatment of skeletal Class III malocclusion.
  • Compare the treatment outcomes between modified MEAW and skeletal anchorage in adults with skeletal Class III malocclusion.
