Orthognatic Surgery: is it still relevant in 2020?

In the last few years, many interest has been focused (and fame and fortune made) on methods for achieving extreme dentoalveolar compensation in order to avoid orthognathic surgery.

However, is it clear what is the cost/benefit analysis for both treatments?

Do we really know what are we trying to avoid at all cost?

Are these treatments always successful?

This lecture will try to give an answer to these question and to help clinician to take informed and objective decisions.

Diagnostic tools for orthodontics and TMJ: the current status

Updates in diagnostic tools for orthodontics and tmj

Orthodontist may find sometimes difficult to approach TMD patients. This is mostly due to the lack of uniform data regarding this problem which can be found in scientific literature. It appears however evident how research has been failing to find a way to measure the occlusal function: in a recent post on Kevin O´Brien blog, Lysle Johnston states that “much of the past century´s cephalometric research has provided useless answers to unasked questions”. This does not mean however that basic diagnostic tools such as orthopantomography and tele radiography have lost importance. For example, just recently some studies have showed a possible correlation between anterior disk displacement in growing patients and some patterns of facial growth. It seems indeed that we are just at the beginning of research. More advanced diagnostic tools such as CBCT and MRI have contributed to enhance our knowledge and nowadays are often essential. More recently, computerized occlusal analysis (T-Scan System) has open new horizons to the occlusal problems that the practitioner faces every day. This lecture will offer an overview on the diagnostic tools available to the clinician in treatment of TMD patients.

Digital patient communication – simple and successful

Internet and digitalisation have altered the world of clinical practice as well and will continue to do so at a rapid pace. In particular, this is seen in communication with patients. The intelligent use of the internet opens up new and as yet unimagined opportunities for every practice. To continue to be successful in the future, a clear and well-thought out strategy is imperative.

This lecture includes practical examples of how innovative and creative web technology can be used in patient communication in an intelligent and highly effective approach and how rapidly and smoothly this can be accomplished. Powerful applications have been developed and are already being used with excellent results in more than 300 orthodontic offices. These applications offer patients outstanding service that increases the clinic reputation and recognition on a regional level; moreover, they also save valuable time by accelerating processes.

Change the way you think! TADs and TADs-borne appliances

When more control is demanded, TAD’s have became a useful tool. Orthodontics has been done without skeletal anchorage since beginning. Overdoing it is not our goal. Some cases need to be treated out of the box. Patient centered treatment in modern orthodontics should use TAD born appliances in cases where best results are obtained unlocking possibility to respect patient wishes.

Transverse, vertical and sagittal control is enhanced by TAD born appliances.

Key words: transverse, vertical, sagital, TAD, MSE II, Penn, Beneslider.

Orthodontic retention in 2020

Retention is an important part of the Orthodontic treatment long term stability.

The presentation will focus on the modern materials and approaches for the optimal retention, accentuating the scientific information behind the new retainer wires, new bonding materials and the driven adequate retention technique.

Progress in non-surgical treatment of Class III

Treatment of patients with skeletal problems demand creative thinking.  This presentation will focus on the alternative options for the non-surgical treatment of patients with Class III malocclusion.  Special emphasis will be placed on the importance of comprehending fully the diagnosis, following an organized treatment sequence, and developing a rigorous three-dimensional treatment plan taking into consideration the surrounding soft tissue.  Based on case reports and research findings, this presentation is destined to improve the clinician’s understanding, to ease the diagnosis and to make an overview of the non-surgical treatment of developing and adult skeletal Class III malocclusion cases.

Combined aligner treatments of complex cases

In this lecture, concept of combined Aligner treatment in conjunction with the Invisalign system will be shown:

The Invisalign system is used successfully in complex cases, such as class II and class III malocclusions, open and deep bites, extraction cases and also orthognathic surgery.

In the orthodontic treatment, complex cases have an important role in correcting a wide range of skeletal and dental irregularities, including the malocclusion and misalignment of teeth.

Today the clinician has the opportunity to plan and treat in a digital workflow, which starts with the intraoral scan and ends with the retention.

Different cases will be presented, also combined with other auxiliaries like braces, hooks and buttons.

A new mandubular anchorage solution

We will presenting a new mandibular
anchorage solution through clinical cases.
This method is based on a moutain climbing technic.
Thank to a simple osteosynthesis wire, it’s now, possible to obtain a backward
mouvement of the mandibular arch and an important
uprighting of the incisors.

Corticotomies in orthodontics: when and how to do it

Today’s orthodontic practice is not driven by professional clinical decisions only, it is also highly influenced by the patient’s different demands. Nowadays internet has enabled a direct access to information, thus enabling the patient to become more easily self-informed and determined in his/her requests. In this poster, presentation of possibilities of combining corticotomy and its RAP phenomenon, TADs and cortical plates, shall be based on real cases with “what if…?” moments, when the patients posed different kinds of demand, such as: What if we try to save this tooth? What if I don’t want to extract my premolars? What if we only help my GP to place implants and prosthetics by segmental orthodontics instead having braces on all teeth? What if we do it by shortening the treatment to 9 (or 3) months, because otherwise I cannot accept it?

In conclusion:

Individualized and patient-oriented approach can end up with more then satisfying, very predictable and faster results, when using corticotomy assisted orthodontics, TAD’s and cortical plates.

Clinical experience of our team work (together with my surgeon) shows that when corticotomies are used together with aPRF (advanced platelet rich fibrin), in average there is 1 out of 10 patients, and even less, that are subjected to antibiotics prescription.

The digital orthodontic office

The digital technology can be a GPS in designing  a standard procedure  for the orthodontic office today. Intraoral Scanning and 3D Printing opens new doors for the profesion. Therefore a proper hierarchy of decisions of applications  and responsibilities of staff members need to be defined.

A review of  the digital workflow  with the use of the GET-Prescription in our office will be presented.

In-office printing of aligners: flow and when does it pay off

With the 3D technology, the possibilities of realization of different devices in the orthodontic office are numerous. Especially for aligners, with intra-oral scanners and 3D printers, it is now easy to control the entire flow from the diagnosis to the fabrication of the aligners directly in office.

The aim of this conference is to explain the flow from the 3D scan, the realization of the set-up, the laboratory phases that will allow total control from the beginning to the end. This technology also requires learning for the practitioner and staff training, which will achieve the best possible results.

The advantages and disadvantages of this in-office aligners realization will also be discussed from the practical and economic point of view.

Social media communication, a step ahead

Are you sure to know the world of social media? Which are the advantages and disadvantages of the different social media platforms for dentists? The idea of delegating the task and forget about it is wrong, a deeper knowledge and a daily engagement are a must. The lecture will focus on what is wrong in advertisement on social media today and take a look into the future, giving inputs about new and original ways to deal with social media communication.

The event is finished.
