Alfonso Ferrer Hernández 5.1.21
Dear Colleagues, I want to show you this skeletal clas II case with upper first premolar extractions.
Stripping of the lower arch was done in order to achieve functional overbite and overjet.
The total treatment time was 25 months.
Once the treatment was finished, a periodontal evaluation was recommended for a possible gingivectomy of all front teeth. We also wanted to restore the small maxillary permanent lateral incisors. The patient refused to have any of the above procedures done.
I want to thank all my friends from FACE Revolution for the support specially to my mentor and good friend Domingo Martin. He taught me many years ago how to treat a case like this. And show me that:
a) extractions does not always mean retraction.
b) we don´t like to extract but when it is indicated we love it!!!!
c) extractions is not only a problem of making room for teeth. Sometimes we need to extract just to achieve our treatment goals.
Happy new year to you all,
Featured clinical cases
A good result is always preceded by a good diagnosis and ours, are exhaustive. Orthodontics cannot be understood without taking into account the entire ectomatognathic system; teeth are just one of all the structures to consider.
FACE International meeting
It’s so nice to announce our FACE Revolution International Meeting. After a break of almost 18 months, we are again very excited about organizing the next FACE Revolution Meeting.
We are preparing it with great care and enthusiasm. You can’t imagine our desire to meet our friends and have a face-to-face meeting. The screens and online courses are fine, but there is nothing like gathering, enjoying the friendship and seeing each other again.
I want to thank you very much for your patience, since we had to postpone the meeting twice, but trust us it was worth the wait.
We hope to see you in Madrid and do not forget that “treatment mechanics is still the key to success for excellent orthodontics: with or without aligners”.
