Hello everybody,

I would like to share another patient which we had treated with splint therapy and extractions.

She was 16 years old and her main complaint was her upper crowding. She has no asymmetries, good incisor exposure and a good smile line and from the profile has a normal vertical growth pattern with a small incisor protrusion. Intraorally she is class I on the right and class II on the left, her lower midline is on the left and also she has a missing lower left first molar.

When we talked with her during the examinations she complaints about chronic headaches and jaw pain. She even used pain killer and antidepressants for a while but they did not help. Her jaw muscles was so tight that it was impossible to relax and move the mandible. 

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”.
