Aligner Orthodontics with particular consideration of occlusal and functional aspects.
The temporomandibular joint is one of the most complex joint systems in the human body. Therefore the first aspect of the diagnostic procedure of all orthodontic patients should be the craniomandibular and the musculoskeletal system. We will demonstrate a diagnostic tool which we use generally in all of our new patients in the orthodontic office. We demonstrate the full TMJ – diagnosis and the short screening test which is the golden standard for TMJ diagnosis. We also explain the muscle and trigger point manual and the screening of the musculoskeletal system. We will show and demonstrate this tools also live in this lecture.
Craniomandibular disorders (CMD, syn. TMD) are a common condition in which symptoms and signs may vary within a single individual and from one person to another. As anatomic and functional aspects of the craniomandibular system (CMS) and the upper cervical spine are closely interconnected, CMD need a close interdisciplinary approach combining orthopedics, manual medicine, orthodontics and dentistry.
Splints as a therapeutic treatment instrument in CMD patients are widely accepted. The association of splint therapy and aligner orthodontics not only provides comfortable and almost invisible treatment but also constitutes a powerful instrument for the orthodontic treatment of the CMD patient. To this end, precise knowledge of the temporomandibular joint, temporomandibular disorders and treatment using removable and fixed splints is indispensable. The treatment planning and the treatment procedure will be demonstrated in detail.
An important part of the lecture is the precise treatment planning for the aligner therapy. In addition to the planning we will focus on the virtual treatment showing some examples what works and what does not.
The lecture is focused on occlusion and function. It will be demonstrated what is needed in all of our patients to finish an aligner treatment with a perfect physiologic and individuell occlusion.
