Over the years, my staff has always had to pester me to “Keep moving!” whenever I stop to talk to a patient or a parent about something other than orthodontics. Even if it may seem unproductive, howev...
Digital technology now offers an effective means of correcting malocclusions from start to finish. Drs. Balut, Popnikolov, and Ades show how the customized brackets and wires of the Insignia system can be combined with skeletal anchorage and micro-osteoperforation to improve efficiency and shorten treatment.

This new system was designed by Align Technology to ensure root parallelism during canine retraction and to maintain vertical control by maximizing posterior anchorage during space closure. A sample case involving four first-premolar extractions is presented by Drs. Zhu, Li, and Lai.
When a lower first permanent molar needs to be extracted, the adjacent second and third molars are often protracted to close the space. Drs. Lee and Park compare two patients to demonstrate how hemisection of the first-molar root can speed up protraction and reduce the risk of alveolar bone atrophy.
Vertically positioned miniscrews with pontics have long been used for tooth replacement in adolescent patients. This Pearl offers a variation of that technique, describing the insertion of a horizontal miniscrew beneath a Maryland bridge to halt the progression of alveolar ridge atrophy.
The author reports a skeletal Class II case in which the Carriere Motion Appliance was used to establish a Class I platform during Phase I, thus improving the efficiency of Phase II correction with fixed appliances. Stability of the results is demonstrated five years after treatment.
