    Root Movement-Essence of Orthodontics to Save Tooth, Renew Bone and Enhance Life Quality
    平生簡述 :
    Kee-Joon Lee, DDS, PhD Professor & Chair, Department of Orthodontics, Yonsei University, Korea Visiting scholar, Dept of Biochemistry, University of Pennsylvania (2002~2004) Adjunct professor, Department of Orthodontics, University of Pennsylvania(2010~2011, 2016~), Temple University(2010~2011) Visiting Scholar, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (2010~2011)

    Abstract
     Congenital missing, severe caries, periodontitis and eruption disturbance not only cause loss of teeth but also initiate disruption of dental arch integrity such as migration of adjacent tooth, extrusion of the counterparts. Rehabilitation of the dental apparatus is undoubtedly the main task of dental clinicians. Recent studies revealed, however, limited longevity of artificial prostheses including dental implants. Autotransplantation of viable tooth tends to exhibit various pathologic statuses over a long term. Hence a fail-safe, biologically acceptable restoration protocol is needed.
    It has been shown that orthodontic force can induce so-called ‘with-the-bone’ tooth movement suggesting the replacement of missing tooth and possible restoration of bone defect as well. For this, a radical well-controlled root movement is essential. In particular, tooth movement into the area of bite collapse requires precise tooth movement involving significant intrusive component of force. Integration of orthodontic miniscrews enables the clinicians to increase the amount of movement and to design arbitrary type of tooth movement. Precision root movement of molars and/or incisors is considered indispensable factors for desirable ‘non-prosthetic orthodontics’. In this presentation, an up-to-date biomechanics will be explained focusing on the following practical questions.
    • Root movement-why and how?
    • Moment-to-force ratio-are they clinically relevant? If not, just useless?
    • 018 vs 022-which one for root movement?
    • Root movement of impacted tooth-missions impossible or not?
    • Root movement in case of ankyloses-why and how?
    • Root movement in children and adult-when to try?

    Abstract :
    The surgery-first approach is a new treatment paradigm for the management of dentomaxillofacial deformity. Compared to the conventional approach to orthognathic surgery, "surgery first" protocols could be advantageous in terms of shortened treatment time and immediate esthetic improvement. However, it should not be considered for patients with cleft related deformities, patients with high probability of development of CR-CO discrepancy and unilateral or bilateral cross-bite or scissor bite post-surgery. In this presentation, “surgery first” as well as effective pre-srugical orthodontic decompensation for “surgery early” protocols with meticulous planning and passive self-ligation brackets will be discussed.

    矯正逆轉勝
    The orthodontic turning point from failure to success
    平生簡述 :
    Dr. Johnny Joung Lin, Liaw completed his orthodontic training at National
    Taiwan University Hospital in 1994 and received his master degree in Chang Gung University. He is now in private practice since 2002 after 8-year visiting staff in Shin Kong Memorial Hospital. He keeps on part-time teaching at National Taiwan University . He served as the President o f Taiwan Association of Orthodontists during 2013 & 2014, and Chair of Taiwan Board of Orthodontics during 2015 & 2016. His mai n interest is the pursuit of Orthodontic excellence through interdisciplinary treatment and the use of TADs. He speaks nationally and internationally to share the experience and seeks the next level on Orthodontic excellence.

    Abstract
    The whole process of orthodontic treatment is made of countless clinical decisions which may lead to the final success, or failure. Among which, there would be one the most critical step to the success in some cases. The author would like to share some examples to highlight these critical points to draw the colleagues’ attention on autotransplantation upon failure in the repositioning of the impacted tooth, change of direction of tooth movement during space closure, the use of palatal TADs upon repeated failure on buccal TADs, molar intrusion with TADs upon open bite during settling stage, and torque control of severe protrusion cases for the active vertical control. Hope the materials may provide valuable inspirations on your way pursuing orthodontic excellence.

    Abstract:
    Recent years, more and more 3D imaging involves dental and orthodontic treatment. Cone-beam computer tomography (CBCT) with large Field of View (FOV) not only gives more information of teeth but also a better depiction of craniofacial skeleton. Furthermore, Some treatment-related anatomic structure such as airway space can be precisely assessed. Digital dental models obtained with intra-oral scanners can be used for virtual model setup, facilitates diagnosis and adequate treatment plan. 3D facial photos provides a comprehensive soft tissue evaluation. The visual treatment simulation also makes a better patient consultation and communication. In the talk, several orthodontic cases related to TADs/ Impaction Tooth/ Surgery-first approach/ Obstructive Sleep Apnea/ Digital Smile Design will be presented to show the utilization of 3D imaging in daily orthodontic practice. The benefits will also be explained.

    垂直不正咬合的困境:深咬的美麗與哀愁
    Vertical Problem: Beauty and Sorrow Under “Deep Bite”

    Abstract
    臨床上垂直不正咬合案例中,尤其是深咬的治療和治療後的維持,都一直困擾著矯正醫師。最近20年來,不少國際專業期刊都有專文論述探討有關深咬的齒槽顱顏型態,機械力的應用和如何維持治療後的穩定。
    拔牙與否的治療,臨床上常常會有舉棋不定的抉擇,它端賴於正確的診斷,而精確的診斷有賴於你對深咬的特性有多少的深入與瞭解。機械力的運用,不外乎有長距型的tip back bend wire與reverse curve wire的使用和用迷你釘(TADs)使力來把前(側)門齒往上和往下拉,以改善深咬的深度。但是用力把上顎門牙往上拉時,不僅會造成門牙撞擊牙齦引起牙周腫脹發炎,也會導致牙根吸收的危機,這些情況都容易造成醫療糾紛。
    多數的案例,在臨床上都著重於機械力的使用,而忽略了顱顏型態的結構,為改善深咬硬把門牙往上或往下拉起,不久之後門牙又會慢慢回到原來的位置,因為它沒有有效的支撐。這次的演講聚焦於顱顏結構型態及利用型態的改變達到深咬的治療效果。
    在深咬的治療完成後,下顎角、骸唇溝角、下前顏面長和上下門齒的關係,將會是扮演維持穩定的重要角色。

    Abstract
    Though the prevalence rate of congenital missing on lower incisor(s) is about 0.23-8.6%, the orthodontic treatments on these cases are troublesome and challengeable. The problems faced such as the correlation of congenital lower incisors and malocclusion/ dentofacial morphology, the decision of extraction or nonextraction, the teeth positon and numbers in extraction orthodontic treatment, the discrepancies of teeth size, the establishment of ideal occlusion interdigitation…, etc. This report will present different kinds of orthodontic treatment on these troublesome cases with congenitally missing lower incisor(s). The cohort clinical study was also performed to analyze over 120 orthodontic cases with congenitally missing one or two lower incisor(s). The research results will offer a treatment guideline and principle for these cases.

    Abstract
    上顎門牙區的美觀是決定口腔美學的重要區域.先天上上顎側門牙會因缺牙或型態大小上異常(如楔狀齒)或顏色造成在美觀視覺上不協調,因此在矯正治療或是贋復或修復治療上是最常被提出不同治療理念與方法.根據上顎前牙美學,正中門牙、側門牙、與犬齒之正面黃金比例大小約為1.618 : 1 : 0.618,牙齦Zenithe 高度呈現為高、低、高,牙齒顏色協調,微笑時三顆牙齒之切緣與下嘴唇微微接觸,此被認定是最美麗狀態.因此,當患者出現側門牙異常,在矯正學治療考慮上,會有下面幾種選擇狀況:ㄧ、缺側門牙時,維持保留空間做假牙.二、利用修復技術做牙齒型態修復.三、利用植牙取代側門牙.四、使用鄰接犬齒取代側門牙.
    本次演講內容將說明針對上顎側門牙異常下,可能出現之狀況,與當進行矯正治療時,矯正醫師應該有的治療話觀念包括側門牙牙周狀況考量、如何決定選擇治療計畫、當選擇植牙之處置等做討論

    Abstract
    舌側矯正屬隱形矯正之一環,於當今矯正專業中屬高端治療項目,在給予患者優雅外觀的同時,仍有其技術上一定的門檻。舌側矯正器的創始者為美國的Kurz醫師及日本的Fujta醫師,這個矯正器一問世,便受成人患者-特別是演員、模特兒、律師、教師…等美觀或職業要求較高之患者熱烈的歡迎。
    舌側矯正治療在發展的過程,曾遭遇瓶頸,由於當時醫師對舌側矯正技術的生物力學機制認識非常膚淺,導致許多醫師在治療複雜的成人病例時陷入了困境,以致發展受挫了一陣子。進入九十年代,舌側矯正技術取得了突破性的進展,經過二十年的發展,該技術已成為一種成熟、系統化的固定式矯正方式,並在歐洲及亞洲國家流行起來。
    從事舌側矯正這幾年來,深深覺得這項治療若要推廣與普及,最需要克服的就是Lab的可取得性與便利性,拜數位化之賜,使得這個想法逐步實現,CDM lingual system於是應運而生,它對我臨床治療上尤其是Lab方面的幫助甚大!CDM為Combined Digital and Manual method的縮寫,先以digital model setup and digital bracket positioning完成整個lab最花時間的8成工作,剩下transfer jig約2成工作仍保留了手工製作的優點,著實達到了Dr. Fillion所謂"Lingual Liberty" 的境界,也希望與大家分享這項改良式的Lab protocol!

    Abstract
    近年來,透明牙套的治療風潮漸盛,讓矯正治療的風貌開始慢慢轉變。然而,傳統使用矯正線來進行的矯正治療,其優點在於針對(1)顎位調整(2)3次元牙齒的移動控制(3)精準調整牙齒尖窩關係等等,仍有其優勢。然而,對於某些(1)牙齒輕微擁擠的症例(2)復發症例(3)提早拆除矯正裝置的症例,透明牙套亦有其優點,特別是針對某些無法適合黏著矯正器來進行矯正治療的患者,例如因為工作關係,或是有嚴重牙周病的患者,黏著矯正器可能造成其維持口腔衛生的困難等,更甚或是某些公眾名人,不方便用有矯正器的樣子示人的情形等,透明牙套不吝提供了另外一種選擇。既然矯正線與透明牙套在某些地方,適應症重疊或加乘,我們事實上可以更巧妙地應用這兩種治療理念的優點,組合在一起,這樣的治療想法,我把它稱為WA!矯正,亦即是Wire (矯正線)與Aligner(透明牙套)的治療組合。我們使用LH矯正線(LH wire)的治療來改善嚴重的咬合問題,而在治療快完成時,我們則提早引入透明牙套(aligner)的治療,進行微小縫隙的關閉,以及細節的調整等等,特別是使用矯正器無法完美處理的特殊牙齒(頰側面)型態問題,或是控根(torque)問題等。因此,藉由這樣兩種治療理念的相輔相成,互相融合,我們可以提供給我們的矯正病人一個更舒適,更快速,更美好的治療成效。

    Abstract
    Maxillary transverse deficiency is a common problem in the craniofacial region. Rapid palatal expander (RPE) was traditionally the first choice for children and young adolescents with this problem, but there would be several limitations when applying on late adolescents or adults. Surgical-assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARPE) was initially used for this group of skeletal-matured patients, but the surgical procedure was traumatic and patient could be reluctant to go through. In these years, micro-implant assisted rapid maxillary expansion (MARPE) was introduced to facilitate maxillary expansion with the aids of micro-implants as auxiliary anchorages on the expansion device. There have been a variety of MARPE designs proposed in the literature and the outcomes all look promising. The aim of this article is to evaluate its practicability in modern orthodontics by reviewing its background, design, indications, treatment effects, stability and limitations in current literatures. The treatment effects of two types of MARPE, bone-borne and tooth-bone-borne (hybrid), will be discussed individually in this presentation.

    3.怡登唯美牙醫診所醫師

    Abstract
         Skeletal Class II with hyperdivergent cases are considered to be one of  the most challenging  problems for orthodontists and are supposed to be treated combined with orthognathic surgery. The characteristics of these patients consist of long face , retrusive chin , lip incompetence , gummy smile and unaesthetic facial appearance. These clinical traits are highly related to the excess vertical growth of maxilla.
         Reduction of vertical facial height is crucial to treat hyperdivergent cases successfully. With  application of TADs, it is feasible  to  decrease facial height and rotate chin forward by intruding the whole upper dentition. Changing vertical proportion of the hyperdivergent face contributes to significant profile improvement and avoids excessive retraction of upper anterior teeth that may result in  uncontrolled dental tipping, potential periodontal breakdown and obtuse nasolabial angle.
         In this presentation, more than 20 cases will be demonstrated with  comprehensive records and consecutive radiographic superimpositions  to show you how the treatments progress. I hope this presentation can facilitate your clinical success and patients’ satisfaction.
