Warsaw Orthodontic Congress

Warsaw Orthodontic Congress® 2019 is a unique opportunity for students, academic staff and qualified orthodontist thirsty for knowledge to delve into the secrets of orthodontics. Each lecture will be an hour long presentation, during which lectures from all over the world will convey to their audiences the essence of their knowledge in an interesting and accessible way.

Agenda

Wensday 22nd May

Pre-Congress

10:00

DDS, MSD J. Martin Palomo

10:00 – 13:30
Traditionally we are trained to see and analyze the airway from only the lateral view on a cephalometric film. But the airway is a three-dimensional (3D) structure, and that third dimension may be hiding something relevant to our diagnosis. This presentation will highlight some of the airway research from Case Western Reserve University, and will show how different commercially available programs can be used to analyze the airway volumetrically, how the airway is different for different craniofacial situations, and what happens to the airway when we extract or expand as part of our treatment plan. When moving from 2D to 3D, distances and angles turn into areas and volumes, and understanding the airway may take orthodontics to the next level, increasing the scope of what can be done clinically.

13:30

Lunch

14:30

DDS, ABO, TE Gerald S. Samson

14:30 – 18:00
This half-day, pre-congress meeting will concentrate on a fascinating selection of clinical cases. Each case will have unique challenges requiring smart, predictable mechanics and problem solving. Attendees will be involved in hands-on applied mechanics. As always, literature support will be an essential component. High quality manuals will be supplied to each participant.

Attention!

Number of seats is limited.

Opening Ceremony

09:25

prof. dr Gerald S. Samson

09:25 - 10:30
This presentation will concentrate on the management of open-bite and vertical discrepancies. These will center on clinical decisions based on science. Participants are assured of a motivating, vertically entertaining and educational experience in the realm of age appropriate, orthodontic biomechanics, diagnosis and prognosis. Learning Objectives: Define simple, compound and complex open-bite malocclusions Differentiate which of these have good and bad prognosis for treatment and stability Learn age appropriate treatment mechanics Understand the impact of airway and facial musculature.

Dr Simon J Littlewood

11:30 - 12:30
Retention is arguably the most important and biggest challenge for all orthodontists. This entertaining lecture will be provide an overview of the best current evidence-based approach to retaining our orthodontic results, including new technology and approaches being utilised reduce relapse after orthodontic treatment.

Lunch

14:00

Dr. Stephane Reinhardt

14:00 - 15:00
Mechanics is mechanics. Newtons 3rd law applies to any appliance we want to use to treat our patients. How do these principles apply to clear aligners? What are the differences and similarities with conventional fixed orthodontics? With case examples we will go over the 5 essential mechanic principles needed to understand and predict how to control clear aligner forces in order to achieve the desired results. This is not the future anymore. This is actual digital orthodontic dentistry.

Dr Leena Palomo

16:00 - 17:00
People living longer more vibrant lives introduce new dimensions into clinical practice. Using a multidisciplinary team approach achieves optimal results for such sophisticated cases. This presentation starts with identifying orthodontic patients who are at risk for periodontal attachment loss, which are important in managing adult cases. It explores diagnostic imaging and tissue engineering have modernized traditional management of ortho –perio soft tissue grafting cases. It concludes by addressing growing patient demands for better faster outcomes in a review of general principles of decortication to accelerate orthodontics.

09:00

Dr hab. n. med. Joanna Janiszewska - Olszowska

09:00 - 10:00
Etching enamel and orthodontic bonding results in resin infiltration into the enamel. Mechanical debonding may occur between the bracket and bonding material then adhesive remnants are left on the enamel. Alternatively, it can take place between the enamel and adhesive and within enamel layer infiltrated by adhesive resin. Adhesive remnants are removed, using various tools, by orthodontist or dental hygienist. Scientific research results are to be presented referring to enamel damage resulting from debonding metal brackets: removal of enamel fragments, enamel cracking as well as damage resulting from adhesive removal: removing a superficial layer of the enamel and enamel roughening. In the field of contemporary research the most popular tool – tungsten carbide bur – should be replaced by equally efficient tools, causing a lesser enamel damage.

Dr J. Martin Palomo

11:00 - 12:00
The digital volumetric tomography era has begun, and we now have access to significant additional diagnostic information. This presentation will show how CBCT is changing the way we practice, and show how Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is extracting and using volumetric tomograms for orthodontic reasons. From posterior buccolingual inclination to surface area analysis and volumes, Dr. Palomo will show current CWRU's protocols and recommendation on when and how to use this 3D imaging modality that is quickly becoming part of the orthodontic practice.

Dr Pramod Sinha

13:30 - 14:30
Developing Cl III malocclusions are among the most challenging problems that present in day-to-day orthodontic practice. A variety of treatment approaches have evolved in an attempt to normalize the jaw relationship or create a favorable camouflage for satisfactory treatment outcomes. However, predictable treatment protocols cannot be created since every individual will exhibit their unique developmental variations to account for morphologic characteristics. These variations are based on different combinations of timing and rate of growth particularly in individuals with skeletal discrepancies. This presentation will explore different ways to predict whether early intervention will treat or satisfactorily reduce the severity of the malocclusion. Other diagnostic parameters will be elaborated and illustrated based on treated cases to provide a framework for camouflage treatment as well as definitive surgical treatment. Learning Objectives: 1. Differential diagnosis of developing Class 3 Malocclusions 2. Methods of early treatment for developing Skeletal Class 3 Malocclusions 3. Evaluating non-surgical Skeletal Cl 3 treatment diagnostic criteria based on growth and clinical presentation. 4. Clinical Management of non-growing Skeletal Class 3 cases.

Dr Mark Wertheimer

15:30 - 16:30
Contemporary orthodontic practice involves the management of a significant proportion of adult patients who present with the need for an interdisciplinary approach to treatment. It is incumbent upon the orthodontist to have an understanding of various concepts as well as a working knowledge of other dental disciplines in order to best manage their treatment. This lecture will explore some of the following subjects encountered in interdisciplinary treatment. For the WOC, 2019 Congress selections will be made from the following topics: Interdisciplinary planning protocols and the difference between Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary treatment When is orthodontics beneficial/necessary - apart from the obvious cases Implant related issues – preparation and timing for implants Forced eruption and implant site development with relation to bony deficiencies Missing maxillary lateral incisors Gummy smiles Bruxism At the conclusion of the WOC, 2019 presentation participants will be familiar with: Best practice for interdisciplinary planning The value of orthodontics in more subtle situations The role of orthodontics in the management of bony deficiencies The dilemma of dealing with missing lateral incisors – implants vs canine substitution Current concepts on bruxism and its relation to occlusion.
