Treatment Effectiveness and Quality of the Results Using Lingual Orthodontics

Treatment effeciveness and Quality of the Results Using Lingual Orthodontics: The 70’s provided orthodontics with a lingual approach in treatment management; from the concept of bonding a labial bracket on the lingual surface of a tooth, CAD/CAM technology brings nowadays state-of-the art individualization of lingual brackets’ design and archwires: a completely customized lingual appliance is fabricated for each patient, a set-up displaying the expected treatment outcome. We will first expose briefly the specificities of lingual biomechanics, why customization is necessary and the benefits of using such appliances. Furthermore, through clinical cases, treatment management will be explained. This lecture will address more specifically class II malocclusions correction managed with or without extraction, involving either intermaxillary elastics, bite jumping devices or TAD’s. The clinical efficiency of customized lingual orthodontics passes beyond the simple alignment of permanent teeth in adults or adolescents.
