Lecture 1: 8 Keys to staying out of trouble in extraction cases

Extraction cases may be sometimes taunting for orthodontists, especially at the beginning of their careers. In reality, success depends on knowledge of the basic biomechanics of space closure and attention to a series of details. The lecture will outline the 8 keys to success in space closure, such as the use of free anchorage, extraction choice, use of driftodontics, prevention of side effects, use of differential anchorage, space closure with TADS. Mastering these details will allow a solid control of extraction cases.

Lecture 2: Practical guide to finishing

Improving our finishing in a predictable and reproducible manner implies the use of standardized clinical protocols. “Starting with finishing in mind” expresses perfectly how perfect finishing depends on attention to detail already during treatment planning. However, the use of clinical protocols and checklists in the final part of our treatment can aid in achieving optimal results. The scope of this lecture is to outline such clinical protocols which, if implemented, can immediately raise the average quality of our cases.
