Class II Appliance Treatment & Advanced Mechanics

This course will present a new Class II appliance offering by American Orthodontics that will change the way you diagnose and treat 80% of your patients. Dr. Brandon Comella will introduce you to PowerBar, including the benefits and features of the appliance through a variety of cases and outcomes that will certainly pique your interest. Dr. Comella in the presentation will also show you how you can reduce total treatment time, and with better results, and avoid extracting in severe crowding cases.

Dr. Comella will also review approaching complex crowding cases with confidence. From early phase I treatment to adult dentition, he will review mechanics to achieve results that may typically be thought to be extraction scenarios. The objective is to achieve a better outcome for esthetics and soft tissue support without impeding on tongue space and potentially causing challenges with airway and stability.


  • Learn when the PowerBar appliance is indicated

  • Learn how to distalize with the appliance to create space for severely blocked out canines

  • Learn how to increase your efficiency and bottom line through using the appliance in certain cases

  • Learn how to evaluate intricate cases to potentially avoid extraction
