For those of you who have attended Courses I and
II, you will have been exposed to a small degree
to the Bimler Elite® Cephalometric analysis. Lessons
already learnt demonstrate why the Bimler Elite® analysis
is unique when compared to other Cephalometric
analyses. Its ability to identify a patient's
individual skeletal discrepancies allows you to
concentrate on correcting problems which otherwise
may have been missed. For example, all Class III
malocclusions were thought to be caused by an
oversized mandible and so often the only
correction was to surgerize the mandible. Quite
drastic measures when you consider it could
actually be an under developed or retrognathic
maxilla that is causing the problem!
The same principle can be applied in Class II
cases. Even in some of the most severe Class II's,
the mandible can be measured as having a normal
size!!..? until further investigation shows the
entire mandibular complex including the
tempro-mandibular joint, to be distally located
due to maxillary entrapment. Relieve the
entrapment and observe the mandible track
forwards. These are only a couple of examples of
being able to avoid surgical correction. Many more
examples of how to balance a patient's max /mand
relationship as well as vertical balancing prior
to straightening of teeth are demonstrated by Skip
in his usual inimitable fashion. After all, the
patient's profile and the location of the T.M.J.
should be of paramount importance when considering
any form of ortho treatment.
Dinner at locally situated, respected restaurants
will be arranged on the Friday and Saturday
evenings as this always makes for some interesting
One final thing to consider is, dentists who only
attend or repeat courses I or II do not in general
go on to treat as many cases as dentists who
complete all five courses. All the courses are
there for a reason and have been designed to
gradually build on your existing knowledge little
YOU WILL LEARN:
The Bimler Elite® Cephalometric analysis is unique in
respect of its ability to define individual
patients' skeletal and soft tissue discrepancies.
You will learn how to trace your own Cephalometric
x-ray, before then learning how to diagnose each
factor of the completed tracing. Treatment
planning is then made relatively simple.
