While I have been an enthusiastic advocate of enhanced technology in clinical orthodontics throughout my career—albeit rather slow to adopt new technologies until they have a proven track record in ot...
Laser melting is an innovative method of 3D printing that has been used to produce metal rapid palatal expanders. Drs. Graf, Vasudavan, and Wilmes show how to use computer-aided design for 3D metal printing of a molar distalizer with palatal mini-implant anchorage.

Drs. Ojima, Dan, Watanabe, Kumagai, and Nanda demonstrate the capability of low-level laser therapy (OrthoPulse) to shorten difficult extraction treatment with clear aligners. The case of an adult female with severe crowding is presented to illustrate their technique.
Dr. D’Alessandro and colleagues describe a 3D data fusion method for creating orthodontic models from optical surface scans and CBCT images. This combined imaging is then used to construct clear aligners with “divots,” providing couples to control root positions in all three planes of space.
Dr. Blevins co-owns a 13-office orthodontic practice in the Twin Cities area with Dr. Delia Dall’Arancio. In this interview with JCO Editor-in-Chief Robert Keim, Dr. Blevins discusses her practice philosophy, treatment systems, staff management policies, marketing strategies, and community activities.
A duplicate attachment template tray is ordered from Align Technology and then modified with a scalpel to remove the composite wells. The modified tray is used as a mask to control etchant placement and thus limit the amount of flash, simplifying the bonding appointment.
In this patient with a Class II subdivision malocclusion and facial asymmetry, three premolar extractions are employed to correct the deviated midline without surgical intervention by maintaining the molars in their initial positions on the Class II side.
