2019 Annual Session Conference

An Innovative Approach for Non-surgical Correction of Class II Openbite using TAD-supported Intermaxillary Traction


May 4, 2019 10:20am ‐ May 4, 2019 10:50am


Description

The application of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) for molar intrusion has allowed orthodontists to correct class II openbites effectively without surgery. The speaker will introduce the concept of TADs-supported intermaxillary traction, a simple form of intermaxillary elastics supported by bimaxillary TADs, as an alternative conservative option for closing class II openbites. Case selection and outcome for TADs-supported intermaxillary traction will be discussed and compared to other options such as molar intrusion.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify non-surgical treatment modalities for class II openbites using TADs.
  • Recognize the clinical indications for TAD-supported intermaxillary traction.
  • Critically appraise treatment outcomes for openbite closure using molar intrusion or TAD-supported intermaxillary traction.
