It is a great honor to be able to share cases and learn from FACE friends and colleagues in this group.
This post is about the importance of diagnosing vertical problems, vertical control mechanics and of course, orthopedic stability.
The fact that changes in the vertical dimension occur together with changes in the anteroposterior dimension makes control of the vertical dimension an important aspect in planning orthodontic treatment.
The patient had already been treated once, but presented with TMJ spontaneous and palpation pain and limiting mouth opening.
Splint therapy was indicated in the first phase to eliminate the symptoms and obtain a stable condylar position.
CMS and TPA are great tools for vertical control mechanics.
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”.
