The comic book superhero Wonder Woman was created in 1941 by Harvard psychologist William Moulton Marston, under the pseudonym Charles Moulton. Interestingly, Marston is also recognized for two earli...
The sliding jig presented by Drs. Pithon, Vieira, Souza, and Freitas is designed to move teeth laterally with support from mini-implant anchorage, thus avoiding unwanted side effects. A complex case is shown in which an incisor was moved across the midline.
As Dr. Lombardo and colleagues describe, an interceptive phase of rapid maxillary expansion and elimination of oral habits can simplify subsequent Phase II treatment with clear aligners in young open-bite patients. Two cases illustrate this hybrid approach.
Because patients with ASD exhibit higher rates of certain malocclusions, they are often seen in orthodontic practices. Drs. Mehta and Uribe provide a number of clinical tips to facilitate their treatment, including record-taking procedures as well as impression and bonding techniques.
This month’s Pearl shows how adding a small amount of composite over the occlusal portion of a molar tube can increase the surface area of the base and thus deflect force and enhance bond strength, preventing bond failures.
Bodily distalization of the mandibular arch is achieved with miniscrew anchorage in nonsurgical, nonextraction treatment of this skeletal Class III malocclusion. Passive self-ligating brackets allow lighter forces to be applied for sliding mechanics, and intermaxillary elastics are not required.
The authors’ technique utilizes anterior skeletal anchorage and a lower reverse-curve archwire to produce molar intrusion and counterclockwise mandibular rotation. This provides a nonsurgical option for treatment of patients with degenerative disease of the TMJ, as two cases demonstrate.

An adult Class II patient with a hyperdivergent profile is treated with four premolar extractions, orthodontics, and bimaxillary osteotomies. Fifteen years later, a virtual simulation compares the results with those that could have been achieved with no extractions or two premolar extractions.
