Summary of Speech
Pushing the Limits in Orthodontics
Conventional orthodontic approach enables us to correct most of the orthopedic and orthodontic problems by using proper mechanics.For the treatment of some severe cases; Anatomic limitations put some borders in front of the clinician and limits the treatment procedure.Orthognatic surgery is the proved and the most effective method used to solve the severe orthopedic problems.As the orthognatic surgery removes all the limits and makes unlimited orhodontics possible;It is a serious clinical approach and many patients are afraid and refuse to go on that radical surgical intervention.Many clinicians seek to develop some less radical methods as an alternative to orthognatic surgery.Bone anchorage and the alveolar distraction osteogenesis are the two clinical procedures to be used to overcome those several anatomical limitations.
In this presentation; A method developed by me ‘’Archwise Distraction Osteogenesis and Bone anchorage supported openbite treatment , Bone anchorage supperted En Masse retraction,and Bone anchorage supported fixed functional appliance treatment’’will be introduced and several clinical problems solved by using those methods will be discussed on some treated clinical cases.
