HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN EASY AND DIFFICULT ORTHODONTICS
Presented by Birte Melsen, DDS, DR. ODONT
The Segmented Approach has often been characterized as complicated. The equilibrium of orthodontic appliances described by Drs. Burstone and Baldwin was followed by the introduction of the segmentation of the fixed appliance. Only thereby was it possible to analyze the forces acting on the individual units of the appliance. The position of teeth is also influenced by the balance between the external and internal muscle matrix, by the occlusal forces and in children by genetic factors controlling craniofacial growth. All of these features interact with the forces generated by the appliance. When applying sliding mechanics, the forces are acting on the crowns and the movement influenced by resistance to sliding. A difficult treatment can thus be defined as a treatment where the desired tooth movement cannot be generated by forces added to the bracket. The “straight wire” will result in a predetermined arch form, but the position of this arch is determined by the mutual position of the brackets, the “geometry” and only to a minor degree by the inserted wire.
This course is directed to orthodontic residents and practicing clinicians and will highlight the development, utilization, and impact of biomechanical principles during patient care. The influence of the underlying biology and use of contemporary orthodontic appliances, like TADs, will also be presented.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Explain the origin and biomechanics in orthodontics,
- Distinguish between core biomechanical concepts including the geometries and determinate vs. indeterminate appliances,
- Develop treatment plans and associated sequencing that utilize techniques that can positively influence treatment time, and
- Compare different treatment strategies (multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary) and identify their limitations.

COMMUNICATION AND PLANNING FOR THE ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY PATIENT USING DIGITAL TOOLS
Presented by Waldemar D. Polido, DDS, MS, PhD
The treatment of patients with orthognathic surgery requires efficient communication between the patient, orthodontist, and oral surgeon. In contemporary case management, there is often also a need for communication with the restorative dentist and possible incorporation of dental implants. With advances in technology, several digital tools are now available to aid the clinician in the planning and execution of cases requiring an interdisciplinary treatment approach.
This course is directed to orthodontists and oral surgeons, and will address the current knowledge and use of digital tools to assess, plan, and treat patients with dentofacial deformities. The use of 2D & 3D imaging, as well as clinical treatment plan concepts will be presented. The interaction and communication between orthodontists and oral surgeons, with regard to esthetics, prosthodontics, and implant rehabilitation will also be discussed.
After this course, the participant should be able to:
- Recognize digital tools that can be useful in the diagnosis, planning, and treatment of orthognathic surgery patients,
- Assess the patient from an esthetic and functional point of view, using digital tools,
- Explain how to use digital tools to improve communication between all professionals involved in the treatment of orthognathic surgery.
Waldemar D. Polido, DDS, MS, PhD is Interim Chair, Clinical Professor, Interim Residency Program Director and Pre-Doctoral Program Director in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Hospital Dentistry at Indiana University School of Dentistry. He is Co-Director of the Center for Implant, Aesthetic and Innovative Dentistry. Dr. Polido joined IUSD in 2017 from the Hospital Moinhos de Vento in Porto Alegre, Brazil, where he served as Program Director for the Implant Dentistry Program. He was Professor and Chair of the Post-Graduate Program in Implantology at the Brazilian Association of Dentistry, RS State Section, also in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
