Last month, I singled out high-angle anterior open-bite cases as the toughest types of patients to treat. This month, I’ll focus on the other end of my own non-scientific hierarchy of case types. Agai...
Trends in U.S. orthodontic practices since 1986 are examined in this first installment of a three-part report. Surveyed items include diagnostic methods, fixed and removable appliances, archwires, bonding, extractions, finishing and retention, accelerated orthodontics, TMD treatment, and clear aligners.
A study by Drs. Cascone, Cicero, Ramieri, Germanò, and Vellone investigates the possibility of using proportional condylectomy and functional arthroplasty, followed by orthodontic therapy using clear aligners, as the sole method of treating unilateral condylar hyperplasia.
Vertical control is especially important in patients with hyperdivergent growth patterns. Drs. Azami, Nanda, and Uribe demonstrate a method of intruding the entire maxillary dentition to encourage forward mandibular autorotation, using a versatile, custom-designed splint anchored by only two palatal miniscrews.

This Pearl shows how to make temporary anterior bite turbos from a light-cured composite resin with high elasticity, which can be applied directly over the brackets to prevent occlusal interference. The technique is especially useful with customized lingual appliances such as InBrace.
In this case, skeletal anchorage from bilateral mandibular miniscrews is used to limit the common side effects of Class II elastics used in conjunction with the Carriere Motion Appliance, prior to nonextraction orthodontic camouflage treatment with fixed appliances.
