Dear face revolution friends,

It is my pleasure to share one of my case with you. I was thinking which one to post for a while but after I see so much discussion and criticism, I decided to post this case.

Some colleagues might say that;

There is no need to use the splint for increasing the VDO.

Why not just increase the VDO? Or why are we taking CBCT’s to look at the joints?

We can just start the treatment. There is no connection etc. etc.

Well this is a nice example for everybody see , what years of tooth wear can cause.

“The chewing system is not an articulator”

You might think that in years of wear when the VDO gets decreased the joints go down only with a hinge rotation. Well this is a very naive type of thinking. But actually it is generally unpredictable and can happen in many variations.

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”.
