Contemporary and future dentofacial treatment modalities: mapping the limits.
New Treatment Modalities for Rapid Maxillary Protraction
Using face mask is a common treatment protocole for the correction of maxillary retrognathism in
Class III malocclusion. But if the growth is completed or the anomali is severe,we don't have many
options other than surgery or distraction. Waiting for the growth completion for surgical option may
result in psychological problems in the adolesant stage.On the other hand few researchers
documented the clinical and cephalometric results of a 'distraction like' method.They protracted
maxilla rapidly by using face mask following Lefort I osteotomy.These studies reported 5-11 mm
maxillary advancement in a very short period of time. In 2004 we designed a study to evaluate the
effects of a similar treatment method and compared it with the conventional one (RPE+face mask
therapy). The results of surgery assisted protraction was more remarkable and rapid compared to
the other group. After these promising results we decided to improve the technique by preparing an
intraoral design which maxilla was protracted by Class III elastics attached between the upper splint
and the mini plates located on the symphisial bone. We treated a group of patient with this latter
design and also evaluated the results of this treatment method. For younger patients in mixed
dentition, we also use another protocol named as Alt RAMEC which was introduced by Dr.Liou.
During this presentation short and long term results of these treatment protocols will be presented.
