A 1981 TMJ Symposium in Dallas, jointly hosted by the AAO and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, was the precursor to what is now known as the AAO Winter Conference, which o...
Intrusion of overerupted molars is difficult to achieve in adult patients with conventional mechanics. Dr. Derton and colleagues use segmental posterior archwires to control torque with skeletal support from three miniscrews: two buccal interradicular and one palatal.
The Class III Carriere Motion 3D appliance is applied in orthodontic camouflage treatment of a complex adult case. After myofunctional therapy, the upper arch is bonded for leveling while the lower posterior segments are distalized with Class III elastics attached to “shorty” Motion 3D devices.
The Invisalign First protocol, as described by Drs. Gorton and Bekmezian, makes it possible to simultaneously open space through dental arch expansion and achieve relative intrusion of the incisors. Aligners were changed twice a week during most of this treatment period.
Rapid maxillary expansion sometimes produces an unwanted unilateral buccal crossbite. This Pearl uses functional turbos bonded to the lower molars to keep the mandible centered during palatal expansion, thus avoiding the development of a skeletal asymmetry.
Autologous transplantation offers several advantages for resolving an inversely impacted maxillary incisor at an early age. Dr. Balut and colleagues demonstrate a case in which orthodontic traction was started three weeks after surgery, using passive self-ligating brackets with light forces.
The author recommends seven magic words to convert a case presentation: “Would you like to start orthodontic treatment?” She provides effective responses to counter eight common reasons given by patients and parents for not starting immediately.

Binder syndrome, also called maxillonasal dysplasia, is a rare congenital deformity. In this mild case, orthodontic camouflage treatment is performed using Class III elastics anchored by four buccal miniplates (two in each arch), followed by full fixed appliances.
