About this Course

Nonsurgical treatment of Class III malocclusion associated with hyperdivergent facial pattern, mandibular deviation, and open bite is very challenging. The etiology of open bite and Class III malocclusion is multifactorial, including heredity and environmental factors. Moreover, open bite treatment difficulty increases considerably when associated with facial asymmetry. The asymmetry usually includes mandible and dental midline shift, canted occlusal plane, unilateral crossbite and different posterior occlusion between the right and the left side. Orthognathic surgery is a good option to correct the severe mandibular asymmetry with good result, but patients may refuse surgery because of risks, high cost and long recovery time. While clear aligner treatment of an Angle Class II Division 1 case with Extraction protocol requiring three key elements:(1) the difficulty of the case is moderate, (2) the design of the staging and the attachments in treatment plan is reasonable, (3) the cooperation of the patient and dentist is good.
