"New aspects of dental-skeletal disorders correction"
Orthodontic treatment with elimination of functional disorders in stomatognathic system dictates the necessity of correction of skeletal discrepancies and achievement of new myofunctional balance between dentitions and muscles. Data of electromyography shows that the use of occlusal splints on pre-orthodontic stage of treatment of occlusal discrepancies leads to significant changes in tonus and algorithm of work of muscles in stomatognathic system. It also leads to new skeletal relationships as indicated by CBCT results.
In presentation will be introduced removable appliances, which allow conducting multi-vector correction of skeletal anomalies. It will also be demonstrated the role of interactive self-ligating brackets in achievement of sagittal and transverse parameters of dentitions in conditions of new muscular balance during interaction in system of orthodontic archwire – interactive self-ligating bracket – tooth – soft tissues.
