Title & COVID-19 - Don't wait, act

Dr. Michael Visse

The current Corona crisis hits us all hard, without a doubt. (Specialist) dental practices are currently confronted with a completely upside-down working day that pushes them to their physical, psychological and financial limits every day.

No protective shield for dental practices - politicians refuse urgently needed help in the corona crisis.

Dr. Wolfgang Eßer, chairwoman of the board of the KZBV

The Federal Ministry of Health issued the COVID-19 Supply Structure Protection Ordinance (COVID-19-VSt-ProtectionV) on May 4th. The Federal Dental Association (KZBV) criticizes the fact that this does not cushion the massive negative effects of the corona crisis on contract dental care in Germany and that the ordinance does not contribute to ensuring comprehensive dental care.

En masse distalization in the upper jaw

Dr. Frauke Beyling

As early as 2008, the French orthodontist Christine Muller demonstrated the successful distalization of maxillary teeth using simple rubber chain mechanisms that were fixed directly to interradicular inserted mini screws. Based on this basic principle, a concept for the treatment of distal bites was established in the following years, especially in lingual orthodontics, which has proven to be both reliable and uncomplicated - the en-masse distalization in the upper jaw with lingual appliances and mini-screws inserted in the alveolar process. The following article introduces the mechanics.

Class II therapy with the Forsus appliance

Iván Menéndez Díaz, DDS, MSc, PhD

Correcting Class II malocclusions is a common task for an orthodontist, but it can also be challenging. Because the variability of the dysgnathias within this class is very large.

Only the correct diagnosis and analysis of the etiology of a malocclusion can therefore be the basis for developing a successful treatment plan.

Missing lateral incisors - closing or opening a gap?

Priv.-Doz. Dr. Arne F. Boeckler

Aesthetic, solid and long-term dental care for missing lateral incisors in the upper jaw requires good and, above all, foresighted planning in both young, adolescent and adult patients. The key to success lies in the coordinated cooperation of the dental specialist disciplines involved in the treatment (orthodontics, surgery, prosthetics). On the basis of clinical case studies, orthodontic gap closure and gap opening are compared below.

Corona crisis can also mean an opportunity

Dr. Michael Visse

We are currently in a crisis. The situation we are currently experiencing is new to each of us. And not only that: it is absolutely frightening for everyone - including orthodontic practices.
