About the speaker

Hugo DeClerck, D.M.D., Ph.D.

Hugo De Clerck is a graduate of the Rijksuniversiteit Gent’s orthodontic program. He received his PhD in 1986 and he maintains a private practice in Brussels, Belgium. He received the European Research Essay Award in 1988 and his research team received the Dewel Award in 2011. He was Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Orthodontics at the Université Catholique de Louvain from 1989 to 2006. Currently he is an Adjunct Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. De Clerck is a former President of the Belgian Orthodontic Society and Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. His main research interests are in skeletal anchorage, biomechanics and orthopedics, and he has lectured extensively on these topics.


Miniplate Anchorage for Midface Protraction in Class III Patients and Molar Distalization in Class II Cases

The main advantage of skeletal anchorage by modified miniplates is their fixation at a distance from the dental arch. This makes them very suitable for distal movement of the complete upper arch in Class II treatment without extraction of premolars. This can be done by sliding mechanics along light archwires or by simultaneous ‘en masse’ retraction of all the upper teeth using heavy wires. For optimal efficiency good control of the vertical dimension is needed.

Skeletal anchorage can also be used to intrude overerupted upper molars or to upright lower second molars and for mesial movement of a lower molar in case of agenesis of a second bicuspid.

Furthermore, miniplates better resist high discontinuous forces than do miniscrews. Therefore, they can be used for intermaxillary orthopedic traction. Class III elastics can be fixed between Bollard anchors on the skeletal base of the maxilla and mandible of young growing patients. Can the growth of the maxilla and/or mandible be stimulated, restricted or redirected? Which biomechanical approach should be used? The results of the continuous pure orthopedic traction will be discussed based on a Cone-beam CT at T1 and T2 registered on the anterior cranial base. The outcome will be compared to a control group and face mask orthopedics.

During this 2 day course all the biomechanics of each application will be explained step by step and will be illustrated by many clinical cases.
