Management of Vertical Malocclusions

Through in-depth case presentations, Dr. Todd Bovenizer outlines his process for treating difficult vertical cases while maintaining control throughout treatment. Using light-force mechanics, including light elastics, strategic open-coil springs, and proper torque selection, he illustrates simple yet effective mechanics for efficient management of vertical cases. He also shares his best practices and lessons learned from each case explored.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Identifying vertical case issues by both the dentition and facial presentation.
  • Selecting proper torque for ideal case management and finishing--always beginning with the end in mind!
  • Utilizing the advantage of variable torque to make space while avoiding flaring.
  • Strategic use of light elastics and coil-open springs
  • Anticipating issues and adjusting Tx plan upon new information.

Dr. Bovenizer is a paid speaker for Ormco Corporation. The opinions presented in this program are those of the lecturer(s). Patient results may vary. Clinicians use your own judgment in treating your patients.
