Recent technological advances in thermoactivated and superelastic wires and skeletal anchorage have enabled simpler compensatory orthodontic treatment of skeletal Class III patients without extractions or orthognathic surgery. In this case, the authors use passive self-ligating brackets and extra-alveolar mandibular skeletal anchorage.
Volume 51 : Number 7 : Page 419 : Jul 2017
A nonextraction approach is demonstrated in an adult high-angle patient with a skeletal Class malocclusion and severe crowding. By using low-friction, passive self-ligating brackets and bilateral temporary anchorage devices over 18 months of treatment, the authors are able to avoid any surgical intervention other than an advancement genioplasty.

A stabilization splint helps establish a stable condylar position so that this TMD patient’s true mandibular position can be identified. Definitive orthodontic treatment is then planned, involving upper first-premolar extractions and upper posterior intrusion with skeletal anchorage.
Volume 42 : Number 11 : Page 0 : Nov 2008
Rapid maxillary expansion through midpalatal suture opening often results in undesirable buccal tipping of the posterior teeth supporting the expansion appliance.1-5 This orthodontic effect accounts f...

This article shows a failed attempt at central incisor reimplantation after traumainduced avulsion. The case emphasizes how the likelihood of successful recovery from dentoalveolar trauma can be reduc...
Volume 45 : Number 11 : Page 627 : Nov 2011
Class II nonextraction treatment can be particularly challenging in adult patients. Although many appliances have been proposed for maxillary molar distalization in such cases,1,2 they generally requi...

In lingual orthodontics, it is difficult to construct and place a properly shaped continuous archwire with loops and springs for maxillary anterior retraction. Segmentation of the maxillary archwire ...
Volume 49 : Number 6 : Page 391 : Jun 2015
When an adult patient presents for retreatment of a moderate skeletal Class II malocclusion and deep bite, both dental and facial characteristics must be carefully evaluated and weighed along with the...
Volume 51 : Number 11 : Page 719 : Nov 2017
This report illustrates how anterior open bite can be corrected in a Class II case by combining upper lingual and lower labial brackets with miniscrew anchorage to achieve intrusion of the maxillary posterior teeth and consequent counterclockwise mandibular rotation.
Volume 57 : Number 4 : Page 237 : Apr 2023
Dr. Venugopal and colleagues highlight orthodontic mechanics for simultaneous incisor retraction and intrusion in a high-angle patient with a protrusive profile. Skeletal anchorage is employed for vertical control during retraction of both arches, followed by placement of a maxillary intrusion arch.
Volume 56 : Number 7 : Page 20220701 : Jul 2022
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.
