Level II Orthodontics 

Course Objectives

This 4 session 8 day Orthodontics course has been created for those who have attended Dr. Rondeau’s Level I Introduction to Orthodontics or are currently practicing orthodontics and want to take their practice to the next level with greater case diagnosis and finishing skills.

You will learn a system for treating patients that involves stabilizing the temporomandibular joint prior to any orthodontic treatment, and bring these important skills to your practice where you can ensure a beautiful smile, straight teeth and healthy jaw joints.

COURSE OUTLINE


Case Finishing - This session will concentrate on showing orthodontic cases to demonstrate various techniques that assist general dentists in properly finishing their cases.

  • Importance of proper bracket position
  • How to correct dental midlines
  • Correction of Class II and Class III molar relationships
  • Technique for closing spaces (closing coil springs and power chain)
  • Correcting deep overbites with incisal ramps and composite buildups
  • How to correct rotations using power chain and lingual buttons
  • Indications for slenderizing anterior and posterior teeth

Advanced Straight Wire Mechanics

  • Double arch mechanics, one archwire holds space with open coil, one archwire aligns the displaced tooth
  • Technique for eruption of mesially inclined second molars
  • Methods to intrude incisors
  • Techniques for extruding molars and bicuspids
  • Eruption of impacted canines

Case Diagnosis

  • The key to successful orthodontic treatment is making the proper diagnosis. Course participants will receive instruction on how to put their cases in PowerPoint format.  New and progress cases will be put on a flash drive and presented to all the course participants at each session. 40 CASES should be presented which will greatly enhance each participant’s ability to diagnose and treatment plan numerous ortho cases.

Self-Ligating Brackets

  • Treatment time can be reduced by 4 to 6 months when patients are treated with low friction self-ligating brackets

Mini-Implants (TADs)

  • Mini-implants are also referred to as temporary anchorage devices (TADS) and are utilized to create increased anchorage in orthodontics. At the end of the procedure they are removed, hence the term TADS

Indications:

  • Closing anterior open bites
  • Uprighting mesially inclined molars
  • Retraction of cuspids
  • Molar distalization
  • Intrusion of incisors (gummy smile)

TM Dysfunction & Orthodontic Case Finishing

  • Phase I – Diagnostic Splint Therapy (4 to 6 months)
    Repositioning Splint, Anterior Deprogrammer, Temporary Splints, Night Appliance and Flat Plane Splint (acute cases)
  • Phase II – Orthodontic Case Finishing
    Cases will be presented on how to hold the position obtained in Phase I, and how to verify that you are holding the position with the use of JVA (Joint Vibration Analysis) as well as Tomogram X-rays to verify condylar position

Self-Ligating Brackets

  • Treatment time can be reduced by 4 to 6 months when patients are treated with low friction self-ligating brackets

Clear Brackets

  • Most adults prefer the clear braces. They are extremely esthetic as they blend with the natural tooth tone for a virtually invisible appearance
