Corticotomies are a surgical procedure that allows orthodontic dental movement to be facilitated, increasing the limits of dental movement, improving alveolar bone volume and often diminishing treatment time. It is an extraordinarily interesting treatment tool which opens up many treatment options and takes a clear interdisciplinary approach.
The aim is to demonstrate that through corticotomies, when recommended, you can increase the predictability of the orthodontic treatment, thus diminishing the dental and periodontal biological cost and reducing pain for patients.
The course, in the theory section, revises the biological foundations of the procedure, establishes the indications, presents the reasoning, treatment and evolution of different clinical cases and describes the surgical technique, the instruments required and the design of corticotomies
In the practical section and in small groups corticotomies will be carried out on animal heads and the indications and design of the corticotomy in clinical cases
Competences to be acquired by students
This theoretical course provides the theoretical and practical background necessary to begin using or optimise the use of corticotomies in clinical practice
Who is it intended for?
This course is intended for all Dentistry professionals: General Dentists, Orthodontists, Periodontologists and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
