Share Abstract:

Combined Orthodontic-Orthopedic Approach: A Second Choice In Some Surgical Cases

José Dahan, LDS, MD, PhD

Page: 177
PMID: 19641767

This case involved the treatment of a 21-year-old speech therapy student presenting a severe Class II/1 occlusion with marked oral dysfunction handicapping her profession. In addition to a multibond appliance, the following orthopedic adjuncts were used sequentially: cervical headgear, a bimaxillary functional appliance (Biopart), a provisional occlusal plane, and composite reshaping of canine crowns. The survey of 8 years after recovery suggests that this technique is a viable alternative when patients do not opt for surgery. World J Orthod 2008;9:177.e35–45.
