Expanding the Possibilities of Orthodontic Treatment for Your Patients
In this lecture, Dr. Dischinger will show new technology that is allowing patients to be treated in ways they never were before. He will demonstrate Evidence Based Class II orthopedic treatment. This treatment provides an orthopedic change of the mandible producing profile changes similar to orthognathic surgery. In addition, Dr. Dischinger will demonstrate the use of Temporary Anchorage Devices to treat openbite cases and gummy smiles that would have required surgery previously. Other applications using TAD's will be demonstrated as well.
