The technical knowledge taught in this seminar is reinforced with instruction on its practical applications. This combination of knowledge and skills will allow you to improve your practice in many ways by taking the necessary records required for your Orthopaedic, Orthodontic and T.M.J. patients.
For those of you who have attended Course I and II, you will have been exposed to a small degree of the Bimler Elite Cephalometric analysis demonstrating why this analysis is unique when compared to other Cephalometric analysis.
Identifying a patient’s individual skeletal discrepancies will allow you to concentrate on correcting problems which otherwise may have been missed. You will be shown examples of how to balance a patient’s maxillary/mandible relationship to avoid surgical correction where possible as well as vertical balancing prior to straightening of teeth. The Bimler Elite analysis makes interpretation of the Cephalometric radiograph simple and extremely accurate.
You will learn:
Anterior cranial base assessment
Skeletal class of the mandible
Position and size of the maxilla
Skeletal Vertical dimension & Facial Index
Predominant direction of facial growth
Position & Angle of the upper lip
A concise understanding of these relationships will enable you to accurately diagnose your patient and learn to:
Evaluate each patient in terms of individual morphological and functional components
Detect and correct major skeletal malocclusions in the developing child
