2018 Annual Session Conference

Maxillary Anterior Protraction using 3D Printed Titanium Mini-plate

May 7, 2018 1:15pm ‐ May 7, 2018 1:45pm


Description

In order to obtain more skeletal orthopedic effects during maxillary anterior protraction treatment for growing skeletal Class III patients, customized titanium mini-plates by 3D printing are used clinically with such advantages as better fitting to the contour of the bone surface, stronger stability for protraction forces, safer selection of locations to insert titanium screws for mini-plates, et al. Cases would be displayed and discussed in this lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the disadvantages of conventional maxillary anterior protraction methods.
  • Evaluate and analyze treatment results.
  • Comprehend the philosophy and advantages of this treatment strategy.
