“Sagittal first” is the tagline for the popular Carriere Motion 3D appliance (CMA). Introduced in 2004 as the Carriere Distalizer, the standard CMA consists of two curved metal bars bonded bilaterall...
Skeletal anchorage now provides a nonsurgical option for resolving a combination of open-bite malocclusion with vertical maxillary excess. Dr. Chamberland describes a double-arch molar intrusion method using palatal and buccal miniscrews. Two cases of nongrowing patients are presented to illustrate the technique.
Any vulnerable segment of a flexible archwire can be protected with a made-to-measure section of rigid stainless steel tubing. This Pearl can thus avoid archwire breakage and consequent emergencies, while also improving comfort for the patient’s buccal mucosa.

The best surprise is no surprise when it comes to the need for a second phase of treatment. The authors provide a sample form for obtaining up-front consent to ensure a seamless transition from Phase I into Phase II.
Drs. Ferris and Rungcharassaeng describe the DF2 Invisalign protocol, in which posterior segments are cut from the maxillary aligners for use with elastics during the early distalization stage of Class II treatment, while the full mandibular aligners are worn. A case example is shown.
The DAVIT device, introduced here by Dr. Barros and colleagues, simultaneously intrudes the posterior teeth and extrudes the anterior teeth for open-bite correction, using bracket-head mini-implants as anchorage. Advantages over other nonsurgical techniques are illustrated with a case report.

In this month’s installment, the authors describe a fully digital workflow for adding expansion capacity to a boneborne palatal expander (MARPE). The replacement expander is virtually designed before removing the original appliance, allowing the new MARPE to be delivered without a delay.
