AM Session: Biomechanics for the 21st Century: Do we really still need to understand biomechanics with all the new developments in orthodontics? Recent changes in the way orthodontics is practiced have opened up the scope of what can be achieved for our patients. TADs, clear aligners, acceleratory mechanisms, and compliance-free appliances have contributed to changes in the magnitude, direction, and speed with which orthodontic goals can be met. The application of several of these new developments, as well as basic fixed appliance mechanics, will be presented, analyzed and compared using case presentations that show successes and failures that may have been more predictable had proper planning been undertaken from the start.
The role of the orthodontist in diagnosing, preventing and treating obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea has come to the medical forefront as a life-threatening condition that requires attention. CPAP, mandibular repositioning appliances and jaw surgery are potential avenues of treatment. The role of the orthodontist in identifying and diagnosing patients at risk will be discussed, with an emphasis on the pediatric population.
