The Grey Zone:  Extending the Range of Healthy Orthodontic Tooth Movement
Orthodontic patients are evaluated for treatment using multiple parameters. Of particular importance is the determination of the skeletal bases and their relationship to the dentoalveolar complex. Between the dentoalveolar and skeletal patients lies the alveoloskeletal patients (grey zone patients) that may benefit by bone augmentation of the alveolar ridge to extend the range of healthy tooth movement. This periodontal procedure fortifies the facial alveolar ridge creating a wider girth for teeth to be moved and remain in bone. The presenter will distinguish the parameters limiting the orthodontic movements and reveal how to treat both Class III and Class II surgical (grey zone) cases without orthognathic surgery and retain a healthy periodontium.

Lecture from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. includes complimentary Noon luncheon.

Dealing with Vertical Control in Orthodontics
Orthodontics is dynamic and has been constantly changing especially in relation to technological advances, but old questions do persist “DEALING WITH VERTICAL CONTROL IN ORTHODONTICS” places a special focus on diagnosis, treatment options and mechanics but also it has to do with passion for excellence. This program compiles clinical orthodontics bridging old and new techniques. Our objective is to trigger a reflection on what we believe, do, and teach day in and day out.  We hope to be able to stir even more curiosity within each one and revisit ideas and concepts we execute as clinicians with special focus on vertical issues in both extremes, hypo- and hyperdivergence. Class II and Class III mechanics associated with vertical deviations will be thoroughly discussed.

Course objectives:

  • Review principles of orthodontic mechanics and discuss treatment protocols and alternatives.
  • Discuss controversies involving vertical control in hypo- and hyperdivergence.
