Class II Malocclusions Using TADs

Class II malocclusions can be successfully treated with several different appliances. For Class II malocclusions due predominantly to maxillary dentoalveolar problems, many treatment options depend on patient compliance, while others rely on complex lab appliances. The recent introduction of TADs has provided several alternatives. But how are they used and what biomechanical systems are appropriate? This presentation will review many of Dr. Cope’s methods of maxillary distalization or retraction, including the most efficient and predictable options. Course objectives include: 1) Explain the various ways to correct Class II malocclusions with TADs; 2) Explain the optimum biomechanical principles for Class II distalization with TADs.
Jason B. Cope, DDS, PhD, has published 27 journal articles, 37 book chapters, a research handbook, and two textbooks - Craniofacial Distraction Osteogenesis and OrthoTADs: The Clinical Guide and Atlas. He is working on two new books due out by the end of the year – a new all digital TAD textbook and book for the lay public on the “Hidden Value Of A Smile”. Dr. Cope is an ad hoc reviewer for every major American scientific orthodontic journal, as well as several oral surgery and basic science dental journals. He holds multiple patents and has given over 300 lectures nationally and internationally. Dr. Cope serves as an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Graduate Orthodontics at St. Louis University, and is a visiting professor at several universities. Dr. Cope maintains a private orthodontic practice in Dallas, Texas.
