Othopedic Traction of the Maxilla with Miniplates
Venue : Sheraton Dammam Hotel & Convention Center | Date : October 21-22 2016
Organized by : Saudi Orthodentic Society
A new perspective for treatment of Midface deficiency
A clinical Update for Orthodontists & Oralmaxillofacial Surgeons
The main advantage of skeletal anchorage by modified miniplates is their fixation at a distance from the dental arch. This makes them very suitable for distal movement of the complete upper arch in class II treatment without extraction of premolars. This can be done by sliding mechanics along light archwires by simultaneous ‘en masse’ retraction of small or large groups of teeth. For optimal efficiency good control of the vertical dimension is needed.
Furthermore, miniplates resist better to high discontinuous forces than miniscrews do. Therefore, they can be used for intermaxillary orthopedic traction. Class III elastics can be fixed between Bollard anchors on the skeletal base of the maxilla and mandible of young growing patients. Can the growth of the maxilla and/or mandible be stimulated, restricted or redirected? Which biomechanical approach should be used? The results of this continuous pure orthopedic traction will be discussed based on a Cone-beam CT at T1 and T2 registered on the anterior cranial base. The outcome will be compared to a control group and face mask orthopedics. The surgical procedure for insertion of the miniplates is the most important factor affecting the success rate, and will be illustrated by video recordings. Which post-surgical follow-up is needed to avoid complications and to increase success rate?
In adult patients orthognathic surgery may still be needed. The use of 3D virtual planning in the clinical routine improves the overall outcome with better facial esthetics and functional occlusion
