I enjoy going for a long run along the Potomac River every morning. At the beginning of each year, I set a lofty goal for the total number of miles that I want to run by Dec. 31—this year’s goal is 2,...
Dr. Burns presents a step-by-step procedure for fabrication of a full-maxillary-arch flat-plane appliance with an inclined anterior guidance ramp to avoid contact with the lower incisors. He outlines his philosophy of achieving equilibrium of the TMJ based on the “physiological center of resistance.”
Successful camouflage treatment of a skeletal Class III requires consideration of tooth movement in all three dimensions. These authors describe and illustrate a miniplate-anchored reverse-curve archwire that can be used to alter the occlusal plane in hyperdivergent patients.
Dr. Lo Giudice and colleagues offer a digital workflow that integrates cone-beam computed tomography with a digital scan. Virtual miniscrews of any dimensions can then be designed for palatal insertion, using a customized surgical guide. A sample case is shown.
In a study by Dr. Hanson and colleagues, the accuracy of models printed from three different resins is compared with that of conventional plaster casts. The stability of the results is analyzed after the application of ultraviolet radiation for accelerated aging.
In this camouflage treatment, the authors achieved clockwise rotation of the occlusal plane with a Forsus appliance and indirect anchorage from three maxillary miniscrews. Lower-incisor proclination was controlled by using negative-torque brackets and adding lingual crown torque to the archwire.
After rapid maxillary expansion, a wide diastema commonly appears between the upper central incisors. The authors’ technique temporarily fills the diastema with a bridge made from a bulk-fill flow composite, which also avoids spontaneous mesial incisor tipping into the space.

This report shows a nongrowing patient with a full-step Class II molar relationship in whom extraction of the upper first premolars was followed by camouflage therapy using temporary anchorage devices. Development of a calcifying odontogenic cyst with an odontoma further complicated treatment.
