THE EDITOR'S CORNER

Complex Treatment with Clear Aligners

ROBERT G. KEIM DDS, EdD, PhD

This special issue of JCO is devoted to the treatment of complex cases with aligner therapy. I will admit to being fascinated with the concept behind aligner orthodontics since it was introduced in th...

ALIGNER CORNER

Complex Treatment with Clear Aligners

WILLIAM V. GIERIE DDS, MS

It’s been two years since JCO has published an issue devoted entirely to clear aligner therapy. That makes it past time to revisit its progress as a technique capable of treating complex orthodontic p...

Mandibular Advancement in Adult Skeletal Class II Patients Using Clear Aligners and Photobiomodulation

TAREK EL-BIALY BDS, MSc, PhD

Dr. El-Bialy describes the combination of PBM with the Invisalign mandibular advancement feature in adult patients. In certain cases, this approach may avoid the need for extractions or orthognathic surgery. The protocol is illustrated in an adult female who was treated in only seven months.

Maxillary Space Closure Using Aligners and Palatal Mini-Implants in Patients with Congenitally Missing Lateral Incisors

BENEDICT WILMES DMD, MSD, PhD, JÖRG SCHWARZE DMD, MSD, SIVABALAN VASUDAVAN BDSc, MDSc, MPH, DIETER DRESCHER DMS, MSD, PhD

The Mesialslider allows the use of sliding mechanics anchored by mini-implants in the anterior palate. As Drs. Wilmes, Schwarze, Vasudavan, and Drescher demonstrate, this facilitates closure of upper edentulous spaces when used either simultaneously or consecutively with clear aligner treatment.

Aligner Treatment of Transposed Maxillary Canines and Lateral Incisors

ALDO GIANCOTTI DDS, MS, ANDREA CONIGLIARO MD, DDS, GIANLUCA MAMPIERI DDS, MS

Aligner therapy can now be employed to accommodate forced eruption of transposed canines and lateral incisors, using auxiliaries such as elastomeric traction applied directly to the trays. The authors present a typical treatment involving a 13-year-old female patient.

Orthognatic Surgery Combined with Clear Aligner Therapy

TIANTONG LOU DMD, MSc, MARCO CAMINITI DDS, MEd

Drs. Lou and Caminiti provide recommendations for surgical-orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, including a typical workflow for presurgical orthodontics, tips for prescribing aligners, effective methods of temporary maxillomandibular fixation, and techniques for postoperative management.

CASE REPORT

Extraction Treatment of Class II, Division 2 Malocclusion and Deep Overbite Using Aligners and Temporary Anchorage Devices

OSCAR MARIO ANTELO DDS, MSc, THIAGO MARTINS MEIRA DDS, MSc, HECTOR GARCÍA DDS, MSc, BERNARDO ELÍAS DDS, ORLANDO MOTOHIRO TANAKA DDS, PhD

The complex mechanics needed for incisor intrusion during closure of premolar extraction spaces may require additional anchorage. In this adult patient with a deep overbite, buccal miniscrews were placed to anchor Class II elastic traction during clear aligner therapy.

PEARLS

The Hybrid Aligner Approach for Extrusion and Rotation of Posterior Teeth

MARIO PALONE DDS, MS, GIUSEPPE SICILIANI DDS, ALESSANDRO VERDUCCI, LUCA LOMBARDO DDS

Partially erupted upper second molars are difficult to correct with clear aligners alone. This Pearl shows how posterior fixed appliance segments can be used in conjunction with aligners to derotate the second molars and promote posterior occlusion and settling.
