Module 7: Management of severe dental and skeletal dysplasia
Following this two-and-a-half-day program, the more difficult malocclusions such as the class 3 malocclusion and significant vertical and transverse dysplasias will be discussed from a diagnostic and treatment point of view, and with the benefit of the knowledge gained in the previous modules, other appliances and auxiliaries are added to the clinicians’ orthodontic armamentarium. Through this module, the practitioner will be able to treatment-plan and manage these more difficult cases. This module will also incorporate all aspects of orthognathic surgery including pre-surgical and surgical orthodontics with an emphasis on post-surgical finishing.
What will be covered in Module 7
- Management of severe skeletal discrepancies – sagittally, vertically, and/or transversely
- Diagnosis of class 3 malocclusion and how to treat the various types of class 3 malocclusions
- Management of severe vertical dysplasias – correction of the deep overbite and open bite both dentally and skeletally in both the growing and non-growing patient
- Orthognathic surgery and pre-surgical orthodontics and post-surgical detailing
- The Transpalatal Bar – its uses and how to fabricate and activate
