Therapy with extractions has been criticized over time with several motivations:
· extractions restrict airways
· extractions cause TMD
· extractions worsen patients profile
Is there any truth to this or are they just biased accusations? TADS have been increasingly
used to perform limit dentoalveolar compensations to avoid extractions. Is this justified by
science or is it just the product of marketing and speakers need for attention?
Aligners have been suggested to expand the dentoalveolar limit and are used in most cases
with non-extraction approach. Is it evidence-base or the product of companies policies to limit
the number of aligners printed? This lecture will aim at giving some an objective view of risks
and advantages of extraction therapy, both from a diagnostic and a biomechanical perspective,
when compared to modern alternatives.

The modern concepts and understanding of CL II malocclusions have been the keystone for the
development of new approaches for the malocclusion correction, including in adults…
The Multi Function Appliance – Multi FA, is a unique appliance, developed specifically to match
those new concepts, offering not only easy and fast malocclusion correction, but also the
correction of other common situation such as space opening, closing and more.

In growing patients having skeletal Class II malocclusion, functional treatment provides the opportunity to achieve orthopedic results, perhaps preventing patients from a more invasive course of treatment. There is much discussion on the effectiveness of functional orthopedic treatments for the Class II malocclusion, with conflicting findings in the orthodontic literature.
During this presentation, Dr. YILMAZ will give participants access to the current literature data about both removable and fixed Class II functional treatment that they can integrate in their clinical practice. Additionally, Dr. Yılmaz will provide guidance on how to design more effective treatment plans.

Addressing problems of transverse discrepancies is crucial in orthodontic treatment, where
various diagnostic methods converge toward a common objective. With numerous treatment
options and appliances available, the decision-making process can be influenced by marketing,
yet sound knowledge remains pivotal in determining the most suitable approach for each

Is TMJ diagnosis always necessary ? What diagnostic tools do We have ? How to use them ? How to apply correct treatment using TMJ diagnosis ? What mistakes We can avoid thanks to the use of TMJ diagnosis ?
THE BIG FIVE questions – I will try to answer using my knowledge and clinical experience

Use of aligners and fixed appliances both have their own biomechanical rules and challenges.
How do we take advantage of this in daily clinical practice so we have happy patients and a
profitable clinic? These important basic biomechanical points are usually not analysed (and easily
forgotten) but are needed for optimum performance of all treatment. Biomechanical concepts,
clinical tips, relevant evidence, patient treatment and diagrams will be shown.

In this lecture a representative sample of clinical cases will be used to demonstrate dramatical
change of wire protocol which self apeared by introducing BioActive wires in everyday clinical
practice. Hope everyone will be able to grasp the idea how indirect bonding with use of minimum
number of wires creates a good final results with a great facilitation of storage managment and
reduction of appointment load to office busy schedule.
