Congress Course - Thursday, October 4, 2018

Orthodontists deal with teeth that have already erupted into the mouth and they are able to offer orthodontic treatment with a high predictability of success. All is well, until it comes to an impacted tooth. There is a wide range of possible causes of impaction and with each comes the appropriate treatment modality, although the chances of success in many of these scenarios may drop significantly. Chances drop even more, when unnecessarily aggressive surgical treatment is performed to expose them, or when the teeth are pulled in the wrong direction. Certain pathological processes, such as ankylosis or invasive cervical root resorption, may lie in wait for the unsuspecting orthodontist. Unfortunately, there are very few graduate/postgraduate orthodontic programs which include a systematic and reasoned approach specifically to the treatment of impacted teeth in their curriculum. The aim of this course is to broaden the knowledge, sharpen the diagnostic acumen and clinical skills of the participants in this area. It is based on years of original research and clinical experience, which are the essential ingredients that build academic knowledge and treatment success.
