Orthodontic Biomechanics and Treatment Solutions


This program is primarily designed to answer specific orthodontic treatment questions and will emphasise on questions regarding treatment problems.

This course will discuss tips for treatment of unilateral Class II cases in the mixed and permanent dentition comparing treatment criteria, appliance placement and adjustments and treatment responses for various asymmetric Class II techniques. Dr Lowenhaupt will also discuss extraction cases and more specifically borderline extraction cases including, when to take teeth out and which teeth to take out as well as treatment criteria for lower incisor extractions and management of congenitally missing teeth.

This course will also provide information on practice technology, finishing and detailing cases, treatment of the vertically sensitive patient and more tips for dealing with relapse cases and where things didn’t work out as planned.
