The intended audience for this event includes:
This portion of the course will address specific information on treatment timing issues, when to treat and when not to treat. Phase 1 and interceptive treatment modalities and arch development will be discussed. Class I crowded cases with expansion mechanics/appliances and their adjustment will be covered.
Participants will then begin a detailed study of basic orthodontic biomechanics. Intrusion and advancing archwire fabrication and placement with various ligation techniques will be demonstrated. Participants will also begin the discussion of Class II diagnosis and treatment.
Hands-on exercises include
- Advancing utility arches
- Intrusion utility arches (fabrication & adjustments)
- Molar uprighting springs (mechanics)
