The distalization of molars has been a tantalizing subject for orthodontists for as long as fixed appliances have been employed. The primary appeal seems to spring from the assumption—valid or not—tha...
This completely preactivated expansion device employs light and continuous forces without relying on patient cooperation. Dr. Matteo Beretta and colleagues present two mixed-dentition cases to illustrate their technique and clinical results.
Dr. Robert Haeger’s article and accompanying Word document outline all the steps involved in establishing a complete personal record. The completed document will provide a quick reference for such details as a personal financial statement, loan interest rates, and insurance coverage.
Dr. Peter Sinclair interviews the distinguished academician and clinician about his practice philosophies and principles. Topics include diagnostic checklists, biomechanics, variable torque prescriptions, sleep disorders, and clinical challenges facing orthodontists today.
Lack of a successor to a lower second deciduous molar can cause supraeruption of the opposing upper premolar. This Pearl shows how to add flowable resin to the infraoccluded deciduous molar to restore function and esthetics during the retention phase.
Dr. Li Cao and colleagues describe the case of a growing Class III patient with two missing lower incisors who was treated with a two-stage approach, involving a protraction facemask followed by upper first-premolar extractions and orthodontic camouflage therapy.

Based on conventional lateral cephalograms, the anterior border of the ascending ramus has been considered the limit for lower molar distalization. Drs. Kim, Jang, and Park use computed tomography to provide visual evidence of a more realistic anatomical limit.
