Periodontal Control in Adult Treatment

ROBERT G. KEIM DDS, EdD, PhD

Throughout my career—even when I was in training many years ago—the majority of my patients have been adults. I never intentionally tried to develop an “adult practice”; it just happened. A number of ...

Distalization of Lower Molars to Alleviate Lower Anterior Crowding with the Invisalign System

CHRIS ORLOFF BDS, LDS RCS, MDSc, MRACDS, Grad Dip DSM, YULIA SHIIKHA BDSc, MSc, PhD, MBA

In a series of five cases, Drs. Orloff and Shiikha demonstrate the application of clear aligners in distalizing lower molars to relieve moderate anterior crowding. No extractions, intermaxillary elastics, or temporary anchorage devices are employed, and interproximal reduction is used only to address tooth-size discrepancies.

A New Approach to the Diagnosis and Treatment of TMD in Growing Patients

AMOL A. VERULKAR BDS, MDS, TWINKLE DHANRAJ BAJAJ BDS, MDS, RANJIT KAMBLE BDS, MDS, SUNITA SHRIVASTAV BDS, MDS, NIYATI B. POTODE BDS, MDS

The effects of TMD are generally interrelated with those of a developing skeletal malocclusion. Dr. Verulkar and colleagues show how to use AutoCAD software to evaluate condylar position before, during, and after treatment by means of a Gelb 4/7 grid superimposed on sectional TMJ views.

A Two-Stage Approach for Phenotype Modification with Connective Tissue and Bone Grafts in Periodontally Compromised Class II, Division 2 Patients

KENSUKE MATSUMOTO DMD, MS, NIPUL TANNA DMD, MS, NORMAND BOUCHER DDS

Drs. Matsumoto, Tanna, and Boucher describe a method involving soft-tissue augmentation with a connective tissue graft followed by hard-tissue modification with a bone graft. This approach is designed to restore full periodontal health prior to maxillary molar distalization in adult patients.

PEARLS

Minimizing Side Effects During Canine Extrusion with Twin Brackets

SERGIO HERNAN VALVERDE MONTALVA DDS, MS

Canine extrusion can cause unwanted intrusion of the adjacent lateral incisor and first premolar, especially when twin brackets are used. In this Pearl, a “floating O-ring” engages the archwire beneath the bracket, avoiding the generation of a vertical force vector on neighboring teeth.

CASE REPORT

Retreatment of a Skeletal Class III Malocclusion Using Mandibular Extra-Alveolar Mini-Implants

MARCUS VINICIUS NEIVA NUNES DO REGO DDS, MS, PhD, ANTÔNIO CARLOS DE OLIVEIRA RUELLAS DDS, MS, PhD

Extra-alveolar skeletal anchorage in the mandibular buccal shelf can allow the entire mandibular dentition to be distalized, avoiding the need for extractions, Class III elastics, or other compensatory strategies, as a case report illustrates.

THE CUTTING EDGE

Cementation and Removal of 3D-Printed Expanders

GRANT COLEMAN DMD, MS

Dr. Coleman introduces a device that is laser-sintered in the laboratory, based on a routine digital intraoral scan. This technique avoids the drawbacks of traditional banded expanders, which require orthodontic separators, and bonded expanders, which can encroach on the gingival margins and are hard to remove.

CASE REPORT

Nonsurgical Treatment of a Surgically Prepared Skeletal Class III Patient Using Skeletal Anchorage

SANDEEP SHETTY MDS, SUBRAMANYA SHETT Y MOLAHALLY MDS, TANVI ANDRADE MDS, KATHEESA PARVEEN MDS

The introduction of skeletal anchorage has made orthodontic camouflage a more viable option in mild to moderate skeletal Class III cases. Here, a nonextraction camouflage plan is adopted after the patient refuses orthognathic surgery during presurgical leveling and alignment.
