Occlusal Cant in adolescent with scoliosis

3 Rating(s).


Posted on By Byron Lew, DDS In Occlusion

here is a 14yr old class I slighly crowded patient with scoliosis.
Crowding has been corrected but I have been struggling with correcting the occlusal cant. When patient sees her chiropractor and does her excercises, the cant improves.
But then as 14yr olds are, compliance with the exercises and chiro visits are inconsistent.

My cant correction percentage is low overall when I do encounter these.

Can someone make some suggestions?

Will TAD on right side with intrusive force correct the apparent TMJ discrepancy?

Thanks

TADS on lower left and mini-plates om upper right would work best. TADS in posterior maxilla have limited success due to bibe quality. Good luck. Dr. Salama
