Asymmetric Class II Malocclusions: The key factors to make treatment efficient and successful
Skeletal and dento-alveolar asymmetries can be considered one of the major challenges in modern orthodontics. The first step for final success is a proper diagnosis, which highlights the type and localizes the asymmetry. Functional or structural, dental or skeletal asymmetries require different treatments. The second step is setting the goal, by deciding whether the asymmetry is treatable or not with a pure orthodontic approach or requires more invasive treatment methods such as orthognatic surgery. If the decision is to address the asymmetry by dental movements, an individualized treatment plan with asymmetric mechanics and anchorage should be set up. The third and final step is appliance choice, design and management. The course will address the class II subdivision malocclusion, highlighting all the factors linked to planning and treating successfully this everyday challenge. Both compliance and no-compliance protocols with the combined use of inter-radicular and palatal TADs will be described in detail with a step-by-step description of every procedure.
