ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT OF THE PERIODONTAL PATIENT / TREATMENT OF ASYMMETRIES / INTRUSION IN OPEN BITE.
25th March 2022
1) Orthodontic treatment of the periodontal patient
Orthodontics can play an important role in improving the prognosis of periodontally degenerated dentitions, preserving teeth, restoring function and bringing back the smile. The session will focus on orthodontic planning and biomechanics in the interdisciplinary treatment of periodontally compromised dentitions and complex situations.
Another periodontal problem: Gingival recessions
“Tissue is the issue, but bone sets the tone”. A tooth displaced outside the alveolar housing can result in bony dehiscence and gingival recession development. Likewise, orthodontic root movement towards the centre of the alveolar process can improve the prognosis of surgical coverage.
Correction of asymmetries in the permanent dentition and especially in the adult patient can be challenging and may require extractions, skeletal anchorage or maxillofacial surgery. Localization of the asymmetry is a key-point in treatment planning aiming for good occlusion and facial harmony.
3) Intrusion in open bite
Orthodontic non-surgical treatment of anterior open bite has traditionally been a challenging task, often associated with considerable risk for a reoccurring opening of the bite. The session aims to demonstrate the possibility for posterior intrusion and open bite closure with minimally invasive treatment by short mini-implants and low-tech treatment mechanics.

DR MORTEN LAURSEN
Morten Godtfredsen Laursen received his DDS from Aarhus University, Denmark in 2001. He qualified as a specialist in orthodontics in 2007 after attending the International Postgraduate Programme in Orthodontics at Aarhus University. Since 2007, Dr. Laursen is employed part time at the Section of Orthodontics, Aarhus University, where he is currently involved in teaching of pre- and post-graduate students and organization of the International Short-Term Course in Orthodontics. He has a private office limited to orthodontics in Aarhus, Denmark and he is provisional member of the Angle Society of Europe. His research is focused on the dento-alveolar-bone-complex and tooth movement. He is past-president of the European Postgraduate Student Orthodontic Society (EPSOS).
