Orthodontic Biomechanics and Treatment Solutions

Advanced Orthodontic Biomechanics is an ongoing orthodontic lecture series primarily designed to answer specific orthodontic treatment questions. As has been the case for the past few years, the course contents for this orthodontic seminar are based on questions and topics submitted from the previous year’s participants.  The surveys from these groups result in numerous requests to answer specific questions regarding specific treatment problems and Eric has grouped these together in order of the most requested items.
Dr Lowenhaupt will be presenting more cases under the category of "Why did this not work?" as well as cases entitled "How could this be done better?" Some of the most popular/frequent subjects were;
  • When to distalize and when to extract??
  • Treatment sequence for deep bite and open bite patients.
  • 'Thin-slicing’ orthodontic treatment solutions for congenitally missing teeth.
Other questions related to changes in aligner treatment and technology, use of elastics during finishing and simple solutions for minimal relapse cases where things didn’t work out as planned. Additionally, there was the request to see more tips on practice management and inventory challenges for the non-specialist office. So, this lecture will seek to address these items (including answering many of the specific questions that were asked).
Multiple cases will be utilized to demonstrate various aspects of mechanics and treatment modalities with particular interest paid to the best available ‘evidenced-based information’. Additionally, multiple treatment ‘pearls’ will be shown to make your practice easier and more efficient.

Topics include

  • Update on direct consumer orthodontic treatment.
  • Class II correction utilizing aligners, including mixed dentition treatment, 3D printers and digital monitoring. 
  • Asymmetric Class II correction.
  • Controlling torque in the incisors.  Including torquing palatally displaces incisors.
  • Why isn’t this working (a look at some common orthodontic treatment mistakes).
  • When to distalize and when to extract.
  • Update on maxillary expansion (different expansion appliances including TAD supported expanders). 
  • Lower incisor extraction cases (when, where and how)?
  • When is it time to take the braces off???
  • Learn multiple ‘pearls’ for practice management of orthodontics in a non-specialty practice dealing with patients and parents and supply inventory. 
  • Simple relapse solutions and retention protocol, results and criteria.
  • ‘What I wish I knew sooner’ (a critical look back at 37 years of orthodontic experience).

We are sure that you will find this seminar to be an exciting, motivating and provocative experience in the continuation of your orthodontic educational pursuits.
