Several years ago, I was invited to speak at an interdisciplinary dental conference involving participants from every dental specialty. My assigned topic, similar to those of speakers from the other s...

Biocreative Strategy utilizes light, continuous forces while avoiding long-term posterior brackets and minimizing skeletal anchorage devices. Drs. Kim, Iskenderoglu, Kook, Chung, and Nelson demonstrate two versions of the C-wire used for en-masse retraction, along with adjustable mechanics for anterior torque control.
Eight experienced clinicians compare self-ligation to conventional twin bracket systems, answering questions from Contributing Editor John Graham about evidence-based research, clinical management, patient acceptance, and the differences between passive and active self-ligating systems.
As described by Drs. Patil, Kerudi, Patil, Tekale, and Verulkar, this modified inner facebow relies on the zygomatic process to anchor upper molar movement without unwanted side effects or the need for patient compliance. The technique is shown in a 14-year-old female patient.
In treating an adult Class I patient with a harmonious profile, the orthodontist often has to decide between incisor protrusion or a reduction in tooth size. Now, as shown by Drs. Antelo, Meira, Miyoshi, Allahham, and Tanaka, clear aligners provide an esthetic alternative for adults who meet the criteria for single lower incisor extractions.
The authors introduce a reliable method for treating an adult open-bite patient with maxillary vertical excess and a retrognathic mandible. This case report illustrates a triple intrusion system that uses a multipurpose implant, posterior maxillary cap splints, and palatal miniscrews to enable maxillary posterior retraction and mandibular anterior rotation.
Miniscrews are commonly placed in the buccal dentoalveolus, mesial to the maxillary first molars, to anchor simultaneous intrusion and retraction of the anterior teeth. This simple Pearl takes us back to a tried-and-true alternative: a modified transpalatal arch with soldered buccal arms in place of miniscrews.
