Title and Summary:

“How to use MIA for Non growing Class III Patients:”

There are many options to treat Class III malocclusion non-surgically, such as Conventional Edgewise with Class III elastics, MEAW( Multi-loop Edgewise Arch Wire)Technique, Class III and vertical elastics, Tandem mechanics/ Class III elastics, Directional force with High pull J hook etc.

Developing micro implants anchorage, we have tried to use it for Class III treatment.

There are two options:

  1. Two micro implants placed intra-radicularly in buccal segment or retromolar area in Mandible.
  2. Two micro implants between 2nd premolar and 1st molars in maxilla and Class III elastics
  3. This presentation will cover the two options above mentioned and show many Class III cases which were treated using MIA, non surgically.

Title and Summary:

Micro-implant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expander (MARPE): It’s Clinical Applications:

The development of mini-implants with exchangeable abutments paved the way to employ them as skeletal anchorage units for rapid maxillary expansion and protraction. Micro-implant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expander (MARPE) seem to enhance the effectiveness of this treatment modality. Maxillary transverse deficiency is common in orthodontic patients, and it can create clinical, esthetic, and functional problems that affect both the arches.

According to an epidemiologic study, around 21 % of children have some form ofskeleton discrepancy involving both dental arches and less than 10 % in adult orthodontic patients. While the cause of maxillary constriction is multifactorial, one way to alleviate this skeletal deficiency is through rapid palatal expansion.

However, conventional palatal expander provokes an orthodontic effect of buccal tipping and movement of the posterior teeth. In recent years, a new palatal expansion design has been developed with a jackscrew attached to the palatal vault by a temporary anchorage device. This design is MARPE, used to combat undesired dental effects by achieving pure skeletal changes.

For growing patients with maxillary deficiency, the use of a facemask for protraction of the maxilla is one of the most common therapies. The orthopedic treatment of class III malocclusion is particularly efficient in patients during the early developmental phases. The use of a facemask for class III correction may also cause problems. The forces for maxillary protraction are normally applied to the upper teeth. As a result, a significant mesial migration of the upper teeth can be observed. This may cause severe anterior crowding and reduce the orthopaedic treatment effects. To avoid this side effect and increase the skeletal effect on the

maxilla, facemask therapy is often combined with MARPE. This presentation evaluates treatment outcomes after using a hybrid MARPE-facemask combination in growing class III patients.

Title and Summary

'Does Implant based Protocols override the need for Diagnostic skills?'

In Orthodontics, from the time in memory, the effective control of both Anterior and Posterior segments during their movement in mandated Treatment plan is the key to the successful achievement our Orthodontic objectives. Such deemed control is usually applicable in the three plains of space. Our concepts in treatment planning revolve around these challenges being countered effectively, so that our goals are met with consummate ease.

Much of the time and energy spent on the evolution of Treatment strategies, have revolved around the effective anchor management, in our planning and execution stages of treatment. However, all this changed noticeably and significantly, with the advent of Implant based anchor controls, by the turn of this century.

These systems made humble beginning, with a handful of operators crating the magic, to the extent of throwing the age old concepts going out of the window, and the rest of the orthodontic world stood aside casting some pusillanimous aspirations. Today after a decade and half the situation has done a somersault, has gone to the stage if you have any hitches in treatment planning, hit the case with TAD’s. Has it worked? Have the Implant based protocols, superseded the need for a good Diagnostic and Treatment planning skills, and coupled with practical biomechanics?

The presentation will discuss these issues and possible to answer to what makes the cut, with well-illustrated Clinical case reports as undeniable evidence.

Learning Objectives,

Mini screws for Different situations coupled with emphasis on Diagnosis and Biomechanics

'Maximum Facial Profile changes after Vertical Control with Microimplants in Hyper-Divergent Patients'

The treatment of patients with hyper-divergent skeletal patterns have been considered as one of the most difficult task for orthodontists. With traditional mechanics, it was almost impossible to reduce vertical dimension during orthodontic treatment. Occlusal correction can be obtained but there was deterioration of facial harmony.

The microimplants have brought tremendous paradigm shift in orthodontic treatment. Among those, the advances in vertical control are of a paramount importance.

Nowadays, the intrusion of the posterior teeth with/or without anterior teeth can be achieved easily and consistently with microimplants. In open-bite treatment, the intrusion of the posterior teeth is known as best the treatment strategy. The intrusion of the posterior teeth can produce the increase of the anterior overbite, and resulted in resolution of the anterior openbite. However, even though intrusion of the posterior teeth is obtained and anterior openbite is closed, the profile improvement is less than desirable occasionally in Hyperdivergent patients.

In order to get better profile changes, vertical control should be done not only in the posterior teeth but also in the anterior teeth. And this should be done on both arches, not to one arch.

In hyper-divergent patients, the extraction of premolars can be planned and this will be helpful in reducing vertical dimension. The cant of occlusal plane in antero-posterior dimension can also affect on facial harmony.

Speaker will discuss the importance of extraction sites, and its role in controlling the occlusal plane, and importance of intrusion of the whole arch in regard to facial harmony.

“Orthognathic like Orthodontics”

There has been a paradigm shift in orthodontic therapy with the advent of microimplants. Cases which were previously considered surgical only in nature are now treatable with temporary anchorage devices. A wide variety of malocclusions including skeletal open bites, skeletal Class III, and huge gummy smiles are now manageable with the help of microimplants. The results are comparable to surgery and hence the moniker ' orthognathic like orthodontics'.

Adults with mutilated dentitions are forming the major percentage of orthodontic practices worldwide. It is but impossible to treat them without the use of microimplants due to complexity of malocclusions that they present with and without any growth component.

Bad, sloppy and poor orthodontic results are not uncommon too, given the fact that unqualified quackery is on a rise in India. Retreatments pose a huge challenge to the orthodontist who faces the suspicion of the patient on one side and if extractions have already been performed, the dilemma of where to find space for the retraction and intrusion mechanics.

The extra-radicular implants, those that are placed in the infra-zygomatic crest and the buccal shelf and not in between the roots of the dentition bring with them plenty of newer ideas and third molar spaces become fully utilizable for the problems in the anterior region.

Cases will be presented where surgery was the only option once upon time, treated with temporary anchorage devices non surgically.

Small movements... Big impact!
Use of Micro-implants for adjunctive procedures to aid in orthodontic or restorative treatments.

The introduction of micro-implants in orthodontics has opened up a huge array of tooth movements which were either difficult, or impossible, in the past. But apart from using micro-implants for full arch movements, or in maximum anchorage situations, they can also be used for small, single tooth movements, which can aid in full orthodontic treatment or restorative treatment. The presentation highlights a few such examples where micro-implants were used to move teeth into more favourable positions, to aid in the overall treatment plan of the patient.

"Bringing us together : Multi-disciplinary Orthodontics for Comprehensive Patient Care"

Multi-disciplinary approach in dentistry entails contribution from each discipline towards best possible esthetic and functional results, so that the ultimate beneficiary is the patient. New advances in materials & technology are emerging in dentistry daily. Orthodontics, being the oldest specialty forms an integral part of the Multi-disciplinary approach. Orthodontics becomes a necessity in patients presenting with periodontal and restorative concerns.

The basis of multi-disciplinary therapy is the combination of diagnostic, treatment planning and therapeutic procedures utilizing the expertise and skills of other dental specialties.

Collaboration of an orthodontist with a periodontist helps in improving the periodontal status of the patient and thereby increasing the scope of adult orthodontics. An Orthodontist’s role in cleft and surgical cases to correct the skeletal problems is well known. An Orthodontist plays a pivotal role in restorative dentistry, be it uprighting of teeth or creating space for prosthesis. Team work between an orthodontist and pedodontist helps in preventive and interceptive work.

The theme "Bringing us together" will be aptly illustrated by a series of complex clinical cases treated by the presenter. This clinical presentation will include treatment approaches to bring together a diverse group of professionals into a cohesive team to provide an overall comprehensive patient care.
