PRE CONGRESS COURSE - 13 October 2018


The treatment aims of orthodontics, like occlusion, aesthetics and function, didn´t change too much during the last decades. Besides that, the diagnostic and treatment range of modern orthodontics got much wider. New high-tech tools and innovations promise to easily guide us to success. But still achieving acceptable or even excellent orthodontic results seem to be “not easy” in real life everyday orthodontic practice.
This course will discuss everyday challenges in orthodontic diagnostics and treatment. High- and low-tech biomechanics will be demonstrated, clinical tips and tricks will be given and failures will be shown. All this will be illustrated presenting a wide range of clinical examples and discussed with the orthodontic literature.

POST CONGRESS COURSE - 17 October 2018


Facial beauty and aesthetics have always been a major topic of orthodontics and surgical sciences along with other functional parameters. Lately, there is a great demand for facial aesthetics, which is by far the most visible entity that clinicians and our patients perceive. This growing demand have led orthodontists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons to change their methodology to analyze the face and to improve the outcomes. Eventually, this has led to a more intimate relationship of orthodontics and orthognathic surgical procedures, like never before.
For many years, traditional methods such as two dimensional (2D) lateral head films, plaster models and conventional photography have served us well for diagnosis and treatment planning needs. Today, we are on the verge of a technology that allow us to reconstruct the human face three dimensionally (3D) layer by layer, integrating bone, teeth, and skin together to generate a volumetric model of the actual patient. However, it is evident that the shift from a 2D working environment to 3D is not easy, but a necessity.
Therefore, this course is mainly going to be focusing on fundamentals of facial planning, record collection for a precise 3D head orientation, creation of the virtual patient and how to plan cases presenting with different skeletal features taking into account the Face, Airway and Bite (FAB) concept in order to help the clinician to make a smoother switch from 2D to 3D. The decision making process will be delivered as the reverse orthosurgical treatment planning as well. In addition, cases with various skeletal patterns will be presented for a better understanding of the aforementioned concepts.
