This issue contains the last article in our three-part series presenting the results of our 2020 JCO Study of Orthodontic Diagnosis and Treatment Procedures. Since the survey is quite “granular,” to u...
In the final installment of this three-part report, respondents’ usage of various diagnostic and treatment methods is categorized according to their choice of fixed appliance prescription: Damon, Roth, MBT, or other. Conclusions from the entire 2020 Study are also reviewed.
Dr. Ruíz-Mora and colleagues illustrate a four-step approach for eruption of bilateral impacted upper canines associated with severe incisor root resorption, using a customized palatal anchorage device and transalveolar nickel titanium closed-coil springs. Two adult case examples are provided.
Online reviews have been found to persuade potential new patients. Dr. Klempner and Ms. Epstein of People & Practice offer tips for encouraging positive reviews and forestalling negative reviews. They also describe a touchless review capture system to coordinate a practice’s patient feedback.
The arch expansion that can be obtained with self-ligating brackets and high-tech archwires can avoid the need for extractions. In this case, transverse development is used to correct extreme lower crowding in an adult patient without adversely affecting his balanced profile.
A device for “noncompliance” Class II treatment is easily constructed by attaching an .040" cantilever wire between a miniscrew and a molar headgear tube. Distal force is obtained from a nickel titanium closed-coil spring, while the direct skeletal anchorage prevents unwanted side effects on the anterior teeth.

The negative psychosocial effects of hereditary ectodermal dysplasia can deeply affect a child. In case reports of two brothers, the authors show how early orthodontic intervention can improve appearance and function while preparing for future prosthodontic rehabilitation.

Impacted upper incisors in the early mixed dentition are challenging to treat, especially when associated with dilaceration. This case is managed by orthodontic space opening, followed by traction of the impacted incisor into the arch and then conventional four-second-premolar extraction treatment.
