Facial Balance Through Redevelopment of Extraction Sites

November 1, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 3.28.52 PM


Young adults, male and female are more aware of the possibility of facial balance and the effects on soft tissues as the process of aging takes place. Adults who are in need of facial balance seek orthodontic treatment with the desire of improvement in facial harmony, facial tone and facial expressions. The negative effect of extractions that were done in previous orthodontic treatment could be reversed by the development of the extraction sites through dentoalveolar distraction in order to improve dentoalveolar support of the anterior segments of the dentition with the result of support to soft tissue structures.

Course Objectives:

  • Understanding of soft tissue facial balance analysis.
  • Characteristics of soft tissue collapse after multiple extractions due to orthodontics.
  • Occlusal Functional Imbalance due to extractions.
  • Protocol to develop extraction sites with dentoalveolar distraction osteogenesis and the use of bone-borne distractors.
  • Interdisicplinary protocol: bone grafting, implant site, occlusal rehabilitation.
