Treatment of Skeletal Class II Malocclusions with Invisalign in growing patients.
John Brabant BDS (Hons), MDS(Orthodontics) Sydney University - Australia
Prevention of dental decay and periodontal disease during orthodontic treatment is a key objective.
The use of removable appliances as opposed to fixed appliances has a distinct advantage with regards to the maintenance of good oral health. The majority of Skeletal Class II malocclusions are due to mandibular retrusion. Growing Skeletal Class II patients can be treated with a combination of the Twin Block appliance to-gether with Invisalign. By unlocking the mandible a more normal growth and devel-opment can lead to a Class I occlusion correction combined with improved facial aes-thetics. The use of certain fluoride products during treatment provide a sound preven-tative practice.
