Volume 53 : Number 7 : Page 397 : Jul 2019
The “surgery-first” approach appeals to adults who wish to avoid a temporary worsening of their facial appearance during presurgical orthodontics. Drs. Chang, Steinbacher, Nanda, and Uribe show how postsurgical aligner therapy can further enhance the esthetics and acceptability of treatment for such patients.

In this case, a periodontally comprised lower central incisor is orthodontically extruded before its extraction, preserving alveolar bone for a lingually blocked-out incisor to replace it. Prior endodontic treatment allows progressive incisal grinding of the extruded incisor to avoid occlusal trauma.

Although orthodontic camouflage is possible in moderate adult skeletal Class III cases, decompensation may disrupt the dental-periodontal equilibrium. Drs. Rahima, El-Beialy, and Mostafa demonstrate the use of short Class III elastics to avoid complications associated with conventional intermaxillary elastics.
Volume 50 : Number 10 : Page 0 : Oct 2016
This case report describes retreatment of an adult open-bite patient using a preadjusted lingual appliance and intermaxillary lingual elastics, combined with logopedic therapy. Diagnosis and Treatment...
Volume 47 : Number 3 : Page 199 : Mar 2013
Agenesis of one or more teeth is among the most common developmental anomalies encountered by orthodontists.1 The reported incidence of permanent-tooth agenesis varies from 1.6% to 9.6%--excluding thi...
Volume 47 : Number 5 : Page 297 : May 2013
Recently introduced "surgery first" treatment protocols achieve immediate facial improvement for orthognathic patients by eliminating the presurgical orthodontic treatment phase.1-5 Because prediction...
Volume 50 : Number 4 : Page 0 : Apr 2016
Orthodontic treatment is complicated in adults with periodontal disease, requiring advanced biomechanical techniques, an understanding of the patient's specific biological situation, and an interdisci...
Volume 56 : Number 6 : Page 353 : Jun 2022
The authors show a multidisciplinary case in which a central incisor and its fused supernumerary are extracted, and the contralateral incisor is moved across the midline into its place. An available supernumerary lateral incisor is then moved into the position of the relocated central incisor.
Volume 54 : Number 3 : Page 175 : Mar 2021
Treatment of anterior open bite is more challenging in non-growing patients. This report documents the correction of an adult patient’s skeletal open bite using T-shaped miniplates installed in the zygomatic pillars and in the external mandibular cortical bone.
Volume 51 : Number 8 : Page 461 : Aug 2017
The authors describe the successful correction of a rare upper lateral-central incisor transposition associated with dilaceration and horizontal impaction of the central incisor. Cone-beam computed tomography is used for diagnosis and a miniscrew with a special accessory wire for indirect anchorage.
Volume 53 : Number 5 : Page 291 : May 2019
Dr. Li Cao and colleagues describe the case of a growing Class III patient with two missing lower incisors who was treated with a two-stage approach, involving a protraction facemask followed by upper first-premolar extractions and orthodontic camouflage therapy.
Volume 55 : Number 9 : Page 561 : Sep 2021
Extra-alveolar skeletal anchorage in the mandibular buccal shelf can allow the entire mandibular dentition to be distalized, avoiding the need for extractions, Class III elastics, or other compensatory strategies, as a case report illustrates.
Volume 52 : Number 8 : Page 427 : Aug 2018
The authors introduce a reliable method for treating an adult open-bite patient with maxillary vertical excess and a retrognathic mandible. This case report illustrates a triple intrusion system that uses a multipurpose implant, posterior maxillary cap splints, and palatal miniscrews to enable maxillary posterior retraction and mandibular anterior rotation.
Volume 54 : Number 7 : Page 210701 : Jul 2021
The authors demonstrate how accurate evaluation of an asymmetrical skeletal Class III can enable comprehensive surgical-orthodontic treatment to correct the skeletal discrepancies in all three planes of space, producing optimal occlusal function, facial esthetics, and long-term stability.
Volume 56 : Number 1 : Page 49 : Jan 2022
This adult Class III patient with moderate-to-severe OSA was unable to tolerate continuous positive airway pressure. The authors show how his situation was resolved with maxillary and mandibular osteotomies, followed by clear aligner therapy with miniscrews for attachment of elastics.
Volume 55 : Number 1 : Page 59 : Jan 2021
The complex mechanics needed for incisor intrusion during closure of premolar extraction spaces may require additional anchorage. In this adult patient with a deep overbite, buccal miniscrews were placed to anchor Class II elastic traction during clear aligner therapy.
Volume 57 : Number 3 : Page 169 : Mar 2023
This case demonstrates a protocol called SKAR III (skeletal Alt-RAMEC for Class III) in a completely digital workflow. Interceptive treatment of a complex Class III hyperdivergent patient is accomplished in two phases, involving rapid palatal expansion followed by miniscrew-anchored expansion and protraction.
Volume 53 : Number 9 : Page 539 : Sep 2019
A Class II, division 1 patient’s severely impacted mandibular second molars are uprighted using conventional biomechanics, without temporary anchorage devices, and the maxillary second molars are then extracted to create space for distalization of the upper arch.
Volume 2 : Number 7 : Page 0 : Sep 1968
The patient was a girl 14½ years old. Her case presented (Fig. 1) the following outstanding features:A Class I malocclusion, with an open bite. A marked bimaxillary protrusion. Examining the SNA and S...
Volume 2 : Number 9 : Page 0 : Nov 1968
Diagnosis The patient was a 12 year old boy with a Class I bimaxillary dental protrusion (Fig. 1). The bite was not closed. The lower anterior teeth were irregular. The open bite tendency and the irre...
