Hands-on course by Dr Winsauer
· M4: ideal and secure position for temporary anchorage devices (TADs)
· Maxillary posterior tooth distalisation with TopJet clix
· Palatal expansion with Hybrid-Hyrax Expander

Target group
This hand-on course is aimed at orthodontists and orthodontic labs who wish to expand their range of treatment with skeletal anchoring.

Course objective
After this course, the participants should be able to insert mini-screws in the anterior palate and integrate the mini-screw supported distalisation with the TopJet distaliser as well as the purely skeletal anchored palatal suture expansion using Micro2 and hybrid expanders in their approach to treatment.

Course content
Conveys in-depth theoretical knowledge of secure insertion and application of palatal mini-screws for orthodontic anchoring. Active observation of the insertion of mini-screws as well as the installation and removal of devices from the patient. Detailed exercises on a typodont.
