Orthodontic treatment with the Invisalign* system has become more refined and complex over the past several years, thanks to the constant review and critique of treated cases by Align Technology and b...
Volume 41 : Number 11 : Page 693 : Nov 2007
Efficient distalization of the maxillary molars requires a reduction of molar resistance to tooth movement, avoidance of distal crown tipping, good vertical control, and maintenance of anterior anchor...

A young male patient with traumatically avulsed upper central incisors is successfully treated with a multidisciplinary approach, involving orthodontic movement of the lateral incisors into the central incisor positions, followed by placement of composite veneers on the six anterior teeth.
Volume 43 : Number 8 : Page 0 : Aug 2009
Transposition of two adjacent teeth is an eruption anomaly of uncertain etiology.1,2 Three different treatment approaches have been described: alignment of the involved teeth in their transposed posit...

Drs. de Brito, Simões, and Machado resolve a unilateral posterior crossbite and lower anterior crowding in only 15 months. Buccal and palatal miniscrews are used initially to anchor elastic chain for molar intrusion. After leveling with fixed appliances, intermaxillary elastics are added to extrude the molars into occlusion.

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.
Volume 45 : Number 9 : Page 507 : Sep 2011
Treatment of patients with complex anatomical deformities caused by trauma or congenital defects is extremely challenging. In addition to compromised esthetics, gross deformities also tend to be chara...
