TADs have entered the orthodontic mainstream – there is no doubt about it. However, much of the initial excitement seems to have faded amongst practitioners, often times leaving behind a somewhat bitter taste consisting of unexplained TAD failures, out of control cases, frustrated patients, and other unexpected results. This is unfortunate and avoidable as TADs may be the most important orthodontic innovation of the past decade and as such can and should be part of every state-of-the art orthodontic practice.
In this highly dynamic lecture Dr. Baumgaertel will share his evidence based principles and clinical techniques that have stood the test of time and really work. You will learn the various factors that can impact your treatment success and when controlled, will make the difference between success and failure. Let one of the most respected educators in this field help you take your mini-implant practice to the next level and gain the confidence you need to treat a wide variety of indications with a high level of success.
Among others you will learn:
- The best sites to place an orthodontic mini-implant
- How to best place the implant at the selected site
- The keys to maximizing clinical success rates
- How loading the mini-implant correctly can make all the difference
- How to implement TADs into your daily practice
- Simple and efficient biomechanics
- How to use mini-implants in different clinical situations (case presentations)
Dr. Baumgaertel has lectured world wide on orthodontic mini-implants and Cone Beam Computed Tomography. He has published multiple scientific articles and acts as a reviewer for a number of high-profile journals. Additionally he is author and co-editor of two textbooks:
- Mini-Implants in Orthodontics – Innovative Anchorage Concepts
- Self-ligating Brackets in Orthodontics: Current Concepts and Techniques
Dr. Baumgaertel is a Clinical Associate Professor and Director of the subspecialty clinic for skeletal anchorage at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH, where he also teaches the orthodontic biomechanics course. In addition, he maintains an active orthodontic practice in the Cleveland, OH area.
