A new technique for an extended genioplasty, the mandibular wing osteotomy is presented step by step. This osteotomy allows correcting the position of the chin prominence, to change the aspect of the divergence in the mandibular angle and to achieve a lip competence in cases where it is needed. All these movements of the lower border of the mandible can be performed completely independently from the positioning of the bases that is necessary for the correction of the malocclusion.
This course will discuss the progression of orthodontic diagnostic imaging from digital panoramic radiography to cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). It will address the daily challenges of the orthodontist to reach a diagnosis through the various limitations of traditional dental imaging and the gains of CBCT. No other field of dentistry had a need for a 3-dimensional vision as Orthodontics.
In this course, the participants will learn:
-Basic principles of panoramic radiography and the features of an accurate panoramic image
-The anatomy of the maxillofacial region with panoramic radiography
-Limitations of panoramic radiography
-CBCT applications in the ORTHO practice
-The diagnostic challenges of the impacted tooth
-Proper utilization of the 3D tools available in different software programs
-CBCT image interpretation
The course will be followed by a live demonstration of different software functions and/or “hands on” participation based on attendance.
