Abstract

Patients with facial disability have varying degrees of impaired facial soft tissue movements/function and disfigurement. Surgeons have different treatments that attempt to correct the disability. This presentation will focus on approaches to quantify facial disability and assess treatment outcomes in patients with facial paralysis. Method: Longitudinal 3D changes in facial soft tissue movements were quantified in adults with unilateral facial paralysis (n=36) during different facial animations/movements, and in an age- and sex-frequency matched control group (n=68). Mean group measurements of displacement, velocity and asymmetry of movement were computed. Standard statistical tests were used to test for significant changes over time in the patient group and differences between the patients and controls. Also, 3D dynamic modeling and vector plots (mapping) were computed to isolate patients' abnormal movements compared with the controls. Results: The patients' mean baseline movements were significantly less for both the paralyzed and contralateral sides of the face with much greater movement asymmetry than the controls. Patients' mean measures improved significantly from baseline to 12 weeks, but still fell short of control values. Conclusion: In unilateral facial paralysis, the contralateral facial side was affected by the paralysis and may be tethered or limited in its movement by the paralyzed side. The measures and mapping effectively isolated paralyzed facial regions and tracked patient recovery, and has applications for facial reanimation surgery. A similar approach for diagnosis and outcome assessment will be briefly presented for patients with repaired cleft lip/palate.

He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a member of the Edward H. Angle Society of Orthodontists, a Fellow in both the International and American Colleges of Dentists and is a Fellow in the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry. He has had the honor of presenting the Salzmann, Merson and Angle lectures at the AAO Annual meeting. In addition to his private practice, Dr. Sarvers book, Esthetics in Orthodontics and Orthognathic Surgery was published in September 1998. He is also coauthor, with Dr. Proffit and White, of the surgical text Contemporary Treatment of Dentofacial Deformity, and is coauthor the 4th, 5th editions and 6th edition of Proffits classic textbook Contemporary Orthodontics. Publication of his book Dentofacial Esthetics, from Macro to Mini is scheduled to be published in February. He has given more than 400 professional presentations in the United States, Europe, Australia and the Middle and Far East.

Abstract

The concepts in Macroesthetics to Microesthetics evaluates each patient who walks through your door focusing first on the big picture and then working your way to the minute details in order to treatment plan for the best possible outcome, taking into consideration concepts like esthetic balance and smile projection. Dr Sarver will demonstrate the idea that orthodontics is about more than occlusal function, it is about creating faces and smiles that are functional and beautiful.

Abstract

Traditionally we are trained to see and analyze the airway from only the lateral view on a cephalometric film. But the airway is a three-dimensional (3D) structure, and that third dimension may be hiding something relevant to our diagnosis. This presentation will highlight some of the airway research from Case Western Reserve University, and will show how different commercially available programs can be used to analyze the airway volumetrically, how the airway is different for different craniofacial situations, and what happens to the airway when we extract or expand as part of our treatment plan. With more than 80 respiratory disorders, the orthodontist can play a big role helping children and adults, specially regarding Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). This presentation will show how the orthodontist can help identify and manage OSA in pediatric and adult patients, from using oral appliances, to surgical movement of the jaws, and newest hypoglossal stimulation methods. When moving from 2D to 3D, distances and angles turn into areas and volumes, and understanding the airway may take orthodontics to the next level, increasing the scope of what can be done clinically.

Abstract

Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) describes a spectrum of conditions with increasing upper airway resistance. In its mildest form, patients exhibit snoring habit without daytime symptoms. With increase in airway resistance, this may gradually lead to a more severe disorder, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Unrestricted breathing particularly during sleep is considered important for normal craniofacial and occlusal development. Maxillary transversal growth can be adversely affected, and mandibular forward displacement directed predominantly downwards, leading to increased lower facial height and convex profile. Most previous studies have included subjects with significant variation in age, which also means significant variation in occlusal status.
In our recent studies the aim has been to study association between varying severity of sleep disordered breathing (snoring and OSA) and development of occlusion, maxillary dental arch, and soft tissue profile in children with newly completed primary dentition.
It has been found that parent-reported snoring (≥3 nights/week) does not seem to be associated with adverse effect on the early development of primary dentition compared to non-snoring children. On the other hand, children with more severe SDB, i.e. OSA, have narrower upper inter canine width than non-snoring children already at the age of 3 years.
It seems that snoring as the first and mild sign of SDB may not have adequate functional, environmental impact on the occlusion during early occlusal, which capability OSA may have.

Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder due to repetitive episodes of upper airway collapse. Several treatment modalities have been used for OSA patients including diet, exercise, sleep position change, nCPAP, nasopharyngeal soft tissue procedures, genioglossus advancement, oral appliances, rapid palatal expansion appliances, maxillomandibular advancement (MMA), hypoglossal nerve stimulation, and tracheostomy.
Conventional MMA (con-MMA) surgery can widen the cross-sectional area of the airway, decrease the airflow resistance and collapsibility of the airway during respiration, and eventually improve the airflow. However, if patients have protrusive lip, acute nasolabial angle, and small nose with low dorsum, 9-12 mm advancement of the maxillo-mandibular complex would result in esthetically unfavorable change in their facial profile. My colleagues and I have reported the concept of segmental MMA surgery (seg-MMA), which consists of (1) Le Fort I osteotomy and segmental osteotomy with advancement of the posterior segment of the maxilla, and (2) Bilateral Sagittal Split Ramus Osteotomy and segmental osteotomy with setback of the anterior segment and total advancement of the mandible. Indication of the seg-MMA procedure is OSA patients with a normally or forward positioned maxilla, labioversed maxillary incisors, a protrusive upper lip, and an acute nasolabial angle. The seg-MMA procedure with/without counterclockwise rotation might be an effective alternative to the con-MMA procedure for improving the sleep function and preventing aggravation of facial esthetics simultaneously.
Treatment modalities for OSA patients must be individualized according to age, body-mass index, airway obstruction site, degree of symptoms, severity of OSA parameters, and skeletodental and soft tissue patterns.

Abstract

Pediatric sleep-related disorder breathing (SDB) is caused by upper airway obstruction, resulted often from adenoid hypertrophy, tonsil hypertrophy or nasal disease. Mouth breathing is one of the most common clinical manifestations of pediatric SDB. Children whose mouth breathing remains untreated may develop long, narrow faces, high palatal vaults, dental malocclusion, gummy smiles etc. because of orofacial muscle imbalance. SDB in children has been associated with a variety of comorbidities, including failure to thrive, hypertension, attention deficit disorder, enuresis etc. Orthodontists who have the knowledge of SDB can play an important role in the early diagnosis and treatment of pediatric SDB. It is recommended that the orthodontist perform a clinical risk assessment for SDB. Orthodontists may be involved in the treatment of pediatric SDB by correcting the underlying dental and skeletal deformities. When making the orthodontic treatment plan, orthodontists should account for children's upper airway condition.

Abstract

This presentation consists of four parts.
The first part introduces the history of Cephalometrics in Cleveland. Cephalometrics is now approximately one hundred years old. Dr. B. Holly Broadbent Sr. developed the Broadbent-Bolton radiographic cephalometer with Prof.T.W. Todd in order to investigate human growth and development. The Bolton Brush Growth Study Center (BBGSC) was established in the late 1920s.
The second part of this presentation shows longitudinal records for Dr. Broadbent's family for about 90 years. The materials include Dr. Broadbent Sr., his wife, son, Dr Broadbent Jr., daughters, grand daughter and great-grand sons. The record now covers four generations. In addition to these family records, this presentation shows some examples of longitudinal records of normal growth and development in children and adults out of more than the 5000 cases collected in the BBGSC.
The third part introduces the JCEG(Joint Cephalometrics Experts Group) and shows their state of the art cephalometrics meeting reports. The first meeting was held at BBGSC in 1955 in order to discuss the the objectives of cephalometrics. The members consisted of cephalometrics experts, including Prof. Broadbent Sr., and leading researchers in the USA. Since CBCT had become popular by the early 2000s, another JCEG meeting has been held at the same place since 2008. There is a web-site dedicated to it, and the members now come from all-over the world. The current agenda is the transition from 2D to 3D cephalometrics.
The fourth part shows some of my long-term observation cases with recent JCEG meeting conclusion.

Abstract

Occlusion has been considered for years as one of the major aetiological factor causing Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). Nevertheless, at now the associations reported are few, weak and not consistent across the studies. Hence at today, the role of occlusion in the aetiology of TMD has not been clearly addressed and therefore it should not be overstated. Actually, occlusion represents a highly complex specialized system of integration of neurological signalling originating from periodontal, dental, and soft tissue mechanoreceptors. This complex framework of information is continuously elaborated by the central nervous system, in order to adjust and refine jaw position and movements, according to peripheral inputs. Therefore, the board concept of occlusion does not involve only the peripheral input (the tooth to tooth contact), but also the way the same stimulus is interpreted by the brain of each individual. Hence, the central nervous system changes (sensorimotor neuroplasticity) are the major factors to determine how well an individual adapts to the occlusal and oral alteration that can result from any dental treatment.
Therefore, it seems crucial to correctly understand the connection between occlusion and TMD, but the paradigm shift requires moving to a more comprehensive interpretation of the occlusion and of the maxilla mandibular relationship. As no proven causal relationship exists, the role of malocclusion in the aetiology of craniomandibular disorders should be considered very limited. Instead, patients occlusal awareness and concerns have to be seriously accounted by clinicians during general and dental examination as specific group patients might develop iatrogenic maladaptive behaviours.

Abstract

It is known that the risks of systemic disease increase by losing teeth, possibly due to periodontitis which closely relates with malocclusion and bruxism. Past studies have suggested that occlusion influences general health. Particularly, it was reported that patients with skeletal Class III had more gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms than normal subjects, possibly due to low salivation. Regarding sleep bruxism, several negative influences on the dentofacial region are known, including tooth wear, TMDs such as myofascial pain, hypertrophy of the masseter muscle, and grinding sounds leading to sleep disturbance of family members. At present, there is no causative treatment although teeth can be protected from bruxism by wearing a splint. A previous study in 2003 found that swallowing was related with sleep bruxism, which inspired the hypothesis that gastroesophageal reflux (GER) may cause sleep bruxism. Surprisingly, the associated factors of sleep bruxism and the associated factors of GER are nearly matched. After examining the relationship between sleep bruxism and GER, it was found that intra-esophageal acid stimulation, which was a model of gastroesophageal reflux (GER), caused more numbers of swallowing and bruxism episodes. In addition, the other previous studies revealed that esophageal acidification causes sleep bruxism in normal subjects, and that the administration of a PPI (gastric acid secretion inhibitor) reduced the frequencies of bruxism episodes. Recent meta-analysis revealed that GERD is the most associated risk factor of sleep bruxism in adults. This suggests that GER-caused bruxism may be a physiological response to protect the esophagus.

Abstract

Bruxism is a repetitive jaw-muscle activity with two distinct manifestations, awake bruxism and sleep bruxism. Awake bruxism, i.e. the habit to clench the teeth during daytime, could simply be a learned habit that increases in frequency and duration under certain conditions, such as stress and anxiety. Sleep bruxism is a 'sleep-related' motor activity that is commonly observed also in non-bruxers. This activity increases in frequency in the presence of some triggers, such as stressors, anxiety, smoking, caffeine intake, heavy alcohol drinking and medications.
The diagnosis of bruxism is challenging and self-reports of bruxism patients obtained during interviews may be invalid. Tooth wear is not a proof of ongoing SB bruxism because of the natural variability of bruxism and wear could have occurred in the past. It is also incorrect to related the severity of tooth wear to the severity of bruxism activity.
As the vast majority of bruxing episodes last only a few seconds, the total sleep bruxing time per night amount to a few minutes. This raises the question whether this intermittent and short-lasting muscle activity is sufficient to be so deleterious as normally thought by dentists.
Patients with awake bruxism or sleep bruxism may present to orthodontists posing some challenges for the treatment. What does an orthodontist need to know about bruxism, and what are the implications of bruxism for the management of orthodontic patients? This lecture will summarise our current understand of bruxism, from an orthodontist's perspective.

Abstract

Orthognathic surgery has been used as an approach to correct significant dentofacial deformities. Orthognathic surgery primarily addresses jaw discrepancies in the 3 planes of space improving the facial esthetics and occlusion. However, in some instances the surgery may negatively affect some facial elements such as the nose or in some instances may not obtain the optimal facial esthetics such as addressing malar deficiency. Complementing the bimaxillary movements with esthetic adjuncts maximizes the facial esthetics results from orthognathic surgery.
This lecture will highlight the combination of orthognathic surgery with adjunct surgical procedures such as mandibular angle, malar, and chin implants, microfat grafting and lipectomies. Rhinoplasties a few months after the surgical procedure will be discussed as an option to refine the surgical outcomes. The virtual planning, sequence of procedures and execution of the surgery will be presented.

Abstract

This lecture will present historical principles from both oral surgery and orthodontic treatment planning. The presentation will focus on enhanced diagnostic and virtual treatment planning protocols, as well as unique and customized treatment strategies. These advances combine the best facets of both the surgical and orthodontic disciplines to optimize treatment efficiency and outcomes. Principles of how to avoid complications, proper management of complications when they do occur, and application of new technologies to assist in resolving complications will also be presented. When orthodontists and surgeons work collaboratively and think outside the box, patients with severe skeletal dysplasia receive the best treatment currently available and push the boundaries to advance both specialties.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Compare and contrast two dimensional 2D and three dimensional 3D surgical orthodontic treatment planning.
Describe a broad spectrum of surgical interventions.
Describe orthodontic mechanics and TADs to enhance the pre-surgical preparation.


COURSE BENEFITS
Understand the benefits of computer aided surgical simulation CASS to both the provider and the patient.
Understand how to adjust the time of surgical intervention to the individual case needs.
Understand the evidence for surgical orthodontic treatment decisions.

3D Technology in Orthodontics NonExtraction Treatment Miniscrew Implants Cleft lip and palate

Abstract

The science and technology of 3D imaging at relatively low radiation and advanced software capabilities have enabled clinicians and researchers three dimensional visualisation, measurements and volumetric analysis of the craniofacial region. Researchers have proposed new 3D landmarks and 3D cephalometric analysis. The complexity of on-screen three-dimensional landmark plotting requires considerable effort and time notwithstanding the experience of the operator as compared to landmark plotting on 2D conventional cephalogram. Such issues necessitated the urge for automating the process of 3D landmark plotting and measurements. In the last few years, three types of approaches for automatic detection of cephalometric landmarks have been proposed. The first being registration-based and second knowledge-based and third deep learning-based. We have developed an innovative knowledge-based technique and tested its reliability for automation of useful 3D cephalometric landmarks. The automated detection can also generate linear, angles and ratios measurements. One step ahead, using template matching extended to a knowledge of anatomical definitions on CBCT, our group has developed an automated volumetric analysis of paranasal sinus and nasal-respiratory passages.

This presentation will deal with the current automated 3D cephalometric analysis and novel patented technology of automated 3D cephalometric and airway analysis with the least indulgence of an orthodontist for 3D plotting and measurements. The presentation will dwell upon how the possibilities of knowledge-based automation could add new dimensions in the understanding of malocclusion assessment and how functional jaw orthopaedics, orthodontics and surgical treatment would affect the craniofacial structures in three dimensions of space and volume of the functional spaces.

Prof Nikhilesh R. Vaid is currently the PRESIDENT -ELECT of the World Federation of Orthodontists. He is a Past President of the Asian Pacific Orthodontic Society & the Indian Orthodontic Society. Prof Vaid is Editor in Chief of APOS Trends in Orthodontics -the Journal of the Asian Pacific Orthodontic Society and three issues of Seminars in Orthodontics, including one on "Digital Technologies in Orthodontics"
He has a practice in Mumbai, India and Dubai ,UAE. He is the VICE DEAN and Professor of Orthodontics at the European University, Dubai Health Care City, DUBAI,UAE.

Abstract

The past decade in Orthodontics has made some very "emphatic statements",which will chart the course of how orthodontics is practiced, marketed, researched and taught over the next decade and probably the rest of this century!
The presentation will discuss the technological kaleidoscope from an evidence based perspective, as influencing the speciality of orthodontics. The application of cloud based services to clinical care and their futuristic possibilities will be analyzed. Core Data Sets (CDS)of tech infusion research in orthodontics will be presented.
The learning objectives will be -
1) Identification of seminal literature on technological developments and their impact on the speciality.
2) Analysis of "what we know" about technological infusions in the last decade,"what we don't" and bridge the gap between the two.
3) Understand with clinical examples-where technology can enhance patient outcomes, where it can't !

Research Interests

Dr. Toru Deguchi has been focusing his clinical interests in the field of temporary anchorage device, lingual orthodontics, and interdisciplinary cases. He has been also engaged in the research field such as histomorphometric studies related to tooth movement and pain related studies. Recently, he has initiated research related to three-dimensional diagnostic system in clinical orthodontics.

Abstract

In recent years, there have been a significant progress in three-dimensional (3D) diagnostic system in the field of orthodontics. Remarkable development of intra-oral scanner, the use of digital model, 3D printer, and cone beam CT has contributed to these innovative changes. Combining these 3D tools will be able to visualize the problem and help patients understanding the treatment goals and may contribute in enhancing the work efficiency for the orthodontists. These techniques also have influenced in constructing various orthodontic appliances including in-house aligners and retainers. In this presentation, I would like to introduce how we apply these 3D systems in diagnosis and treatment planning such as setup models, visual treatment objectives, and managing surgical prediction and constructing the splints in our post graduate orthodontic program. I will also present some of our current research with regard to reliability and the usefulness of 3D diagnostic system in clinical orthodontics.
