Ana Inés Salto 24.6.20
Dear Colleagues, I am Ana Inés Salto from Asunción Paraguay, I would like to thank you for being part of this Revolution. As an orthodontic student, I encouraged myself to show a case, which surely has a lot to improve, but I want to encourage other students as well. We are in love with this philosophy that changes our lives and most importantly, the lives of our patients forever.
A 17-year-old female patient arrived at the office during her previous orthodontic treatment (extraction of 1.4) she began to have many headaches and neck pains. After orthodontics, the pains were accentuated.
The patient is not from Paraguay and he told me that he would return to his home country in 13 months.
So I had less than a year to finish the case !!! When we saw the mounting we saw that the middle line was deviates due to tooth 4.1 geminated so we knew that we were going to leave the lower middle line to the right and not center the midlines.
He had a cross-bite on the right side that caused muscle imbalance and no functional guides. Overjet and overbite greatly diminished. The treatment plan was the extractions of 25, 35 and 44 and the spaces were starting to be closed the same day of the extractions. Also molar stops to get more overbite, decrease the lower third, increase and balance muscle forces.
We ended the case with reconstructions with composites
Total treatment lasted 12 months
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”.
