C302 – USDI Contemporary Cephalometric Analysis

Online Course

INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Viet Ngheim This is a Cephalometric course which includes a detailed evaluation of the definitions of landmarks, tracing of head plates, and a review of Steiner and the USDI’s systems of analysis. A brief history of cephalometrics, structures of the skull and landmarks will also be discussed.  Constructing the USDI analysis and the measurements needed will be examined. Model analysis which is the first and foremost adjunct to Cephalometrics will also be reviewed.  Measurements are performed on models of each case to determine the Arch Form, Arch Width and Arch Depth.  The arch form is assessed as Roman (IDEAL), [...]

AM662 – Intermediate Straight Wire Mechanics

Online Course

This course is a continuation of D660. In D660, the main emphasis was to provide strategies for initial bracketing as well as the first nine months of treatment. In AM 662, we will discuss class II mechanics, extraction mechanics, management of canine impaction, management of midline discrepancies, how and when to use trans-palatal arches (TPA's) and finishing mechanics. We will also discuss strategies for obtaining informed consent and what to do if root resorption is encountered. We will show many cases from start to finish; this gives the participant an idea of how to put together a comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan. [...]
