This Advanced Orthodontics course has been created for those who have attended Dr. Rondeau’s Level I Introduction to Orthodontics or are currently practicing orthodontics and want to take their practice to the next level with greater case diagnosis and finishing skills.

You will learn a system for treating patients that involves stabilizing the temporomandibular joint prior to any orthodontic treatment, and bring these important skills to your practice where you can ensure a beautiful smile, straight teeth and healthy jaw joints.

Mini-Implants

  • Mini-implants are also referred to as temporary anchorage devices (TADS) and are utilized to create increased anchorage in orthodontics. At the end of the procedure they are removed, hence the term TADS

Indications:

  • Intrusion of molars to correct cant of occlusal plane
  • Closing anterior open bites
  • Uprighting mesially inclined molars
  • Retraction of cuspids
  • Molar distalization
  • Intrusion of incisors (gummy smile)
  • Prevent movement midline
  • Crossbite correction

TM Dysfunction & Orthodontic Case Finishing

  • Phase I – Diagnostic Splint Therapy (4 to 6 months) 
    Repositioning Splint, Distraction Appliance, Anterior Deprogrammer, Temporary Splints, Night Appliance and Flat Plane Splint (acute cases)
  • Phase II – Orthodontic Case Finishing
    Cases will be presented on how to hold the position obtained in Phase I, and how to verify that you are holding the position with the use of JVA (Joint Vibration Analysis) as well as Tomogram X-rays to verify condylar position

Self-Ligating Brackets

  • Treatment time can be reduced by 4 to 6 months when patients are treated with low friction self-ligating brackets

Case Diagnosis

  • The key to successful orthodontic treatment is making the proper diagnosis. Dr. Rondeau has several experienced assistant instructors who will be available to offer advice to the course participants on their new and progress cases

Snoring & Sleep Apnea

  • In January 2006, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommended that oral appliances be utilized as the first line treatment for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea. A high percentage of patients cannot tolerate CPAP devices. This has created an excellent opportunity for dentists who treat patients who suffer from snoring and sleep apnea to improve the health of their patients as well as significantly increase the size of their practices

Clear Brackets

  • Most adults prefer the clear braces. They are extremely esthetic as they blend with the natural tooth tone for a virtually invisible appearance
