GROWTH STIMULATION OF THE MANDIBLE BY A BONE ANCHORED HERBST APPLIANCE
mei 30 @ 09:00 - 17:30
State of the art of dentofacial orthopedics after more than hundred years of clinical trials: which growth modifications may be expected and how do they happen?
The use of skeletal anchorage to reduce dento-alveolar compensations in dentofacial orthopedics: does it really make a difference?
Introduction of a bone anchored Herbst appliance with a tooth borne upper frame, connected with 2 custom made Bollards in the mandible: clinical procedures and follow-up.
The outcome of a bone anchored Herbst appliance: what did we learn from a clinical investigation on 85 cases based on changes of occlusion, facial esthetics, and airway, supported by 3D imaging?
