About the speech
Temporomandibular joint involvement in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis results in functional limitations, asymmetry, mandibular hypoplasia and skeleton-dental malocclusions. Multidisciplinary collaboration between several specialists in medicine, dentistry and surgery is required for diagnosing and treating patients optimally. The focus of this presentation is to provide an overview of diagnostic features, signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint involvement, effects of the disease and therapeutic management that orthodontists should know while evaluating and treating children with JIA. Findings of recent clinical investigations focused on orthodontic diagnosis will be discussed. Orthodontic treatment interventions and surgical orthodontic treatment that can be employed in the effective management of affected children will be included in a case-based presentation format.
Attendees of this lecture will be able to:
•Identify diagnostic features of temporomandibular joint involvement in JIA
•Understand implications of the disease and medical treatment as they relate to orthodontic treatment
•Distinguish orthodontic treatment interventions and surgical orthodontic treatment that can be used successfully in JIA
• Understand the effect of commonly used fixed orthodontic appliances on MR images of the head and TMJ
About Dr. Sherif Kandil
A polymath with main focus in orthodontics. Trying to bridge the gap between Orthodontics, material science and software engineering, he has been working for over ten years with clear aligners. He has treated over 4500 cases with aligners, own 6 patents and gave 180 lectures in CAT worldwide. Since 2018 he has been involved in R&D at K Line Europe where he found an amazing platform to pour in years of multilevel experiences and lateral thinking methods. He is advocated of eco-friendly solutions and implementing them in orthodontics. Graduated in 2006 and worked as dentist till 2012 when he specialized in orthodontics (Donau Krems University). Since then he has established 3 companies servicing and manufacturing clear aligners
About the speech
''4D ORTHODONTICS ''
A NEW DIMENSION IN ORTHODONTICS THROUGH ''CLEVER MATERIALS''
Clear aligners or invisible orthodontic trays are a very unique and promising method for straightening teeth as an alternative to braces. The credit goes to Align tech and specifically to Zia Chisti one of the co-founders of Align tech at its embryonic stages.
Clear aligners are manufactured through high-end 3d technology from 3d scanning dental models to 3d designing of teeth movements then 3D printing the sequential steps through a 3D printer and finally thermoforming plastic materials chemically made out of TPU or PETG to conclude a clear aligner form.
4D dynamic aligners are produced through using special shape memory polymers that could be formed on the targeted shape of teeth let’s assume the 4th step in the process of teeth aligning S4, the clear aligner is re-engineered in-lab under specific temperatures to shape S1, we call it “Back from the future” concept. The patient has an activation device to activate the clear aligners (Aligner booster) every 2 weeks and thus recover the shape of the clear aligner gradually to go back to S4 “ Back to the future”. The result is instead of using 4 aligners per arch to align teeth over 2 months, by this technique we use only 1 aligner.
The technique proved in-lab as well as in the first waves of clinical trials to be supremely successful and functional.
On the other side recycling the 3D models is also considered a huge benefit, not only would any lab decrease the material waste but also save a lot of money. Recycling somehow represents a bit of investment at the start yet it is worth it on the long run.
A call to action, align teeth but don’t forget aligning your business to our planet, make your patients and planet smile :)
This is the future of us and our grandchildren.
