Title: Reconsidering the Role of Early Treatment in Orthodontics

Speaker: Steven A. Dugoni, D.M.D, M.S.D.

Description: The lecture will demonstrate what is comprehensive early orthodontic treatment and how this treatment approach can be an effective treatment for the correction of malocclusions with emphasis on Class II correction in the mixed dentition. Recent early treatment research data from the University of the Pacific will be presented.

A detailed presentation of how space management during the early and late mixed dentition can be used to address anterior and posterior crowding problems. The presentation will include a review of literature for space management issues and arch length changes in the transitional dentition. The benefits of arch length preservation with a mandibular lingual arch will be shown and long-term stability after lingual arch therapy.
