Inter-Arch Treatment Mechanics Class II Treatment

This course will cover the vertical, horizontal and transverse aspects concerning the diagnosis and treatment planning of Class II cases.  This will include the soft tissue, dental and skeletal components of these cases.  Non-extraction and extraction treatment options will be demonstrated through case examples.  The indications and contra-indications of molar distalizing techniques and functional appliances will be evaluated with case reports.  The advantages and disadvantages of early treatment will be discussed and techniques of management will be shown.  Temporomandibular joint problems will be reviewed which will include the pathophysiology of condylar resorption and the management of this condition.  Management of airway issues which are predominantly seen in Class II cases will also be discussed.

Learn how to:

  • Understand the advantage and necessity of including the evaluation of the patient's soft tissue when diagnosing treatment.
  • Use the McLaughlin Dental VTO when diagnosing cases. The VTO analyzes and evaluates tooth positions and provides dental treatment options.
  • Evaluate when a Phase I is indicated in a Class II malocclusion and what options are available.
