2018 Annual Session Conference

A Simple Non-Extraction Approach to Correct CII Malocclusion

May 7, 2018 3:25pm ‐ May 7, 2018 3:55pm


Description

In treatment of class II malocclusion the temporary anchorage device (TAD) is a highly effective appliance, which can be easily placed and managed by orthodontists. A simple method for class II correction with TAD will be introduced for efficient molar distalization with a near-bodily movement. Scientific evidence will be discussed in the area of broad indications for non-extraction method assisted by TAD. Also, a creative and innovative approach for Class II correction using plate will be illustrated including biomechanics and guidelines for practical use. In addition, use of a new improved jig system for more accurate plate placement will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  • Introduce a simple method for class II correction with TAD.
  • Broaden indication for non-extraction method.
  • Influence maxillary distalization mechanics on the 3rd molar development.
