One of my favorite subjects.  Enjoy!

I might also add that miniscrews would seem to be a perfect solution for these cases especially in the mandible.  I have three cases going where I have IMTEC screws between the roots of the lower 3 & 4s and am protracting the molars to close spaces.  I've also done a fair amount of hemisectioning of dec second molars.  Very straightforward as pointed out by Drs. Valencia et al.
Be sure to read the material by Eugene Roberts in Graber and Vanarsdall to fully understand the nature of the problem in moving lower 6s forward.

Subject: Extraction of E's when missing 5's...

I read an article that said removing the deciduous molars to allow for space closure when the adult second bicuspids are missing is much more successful if they are removed by a young age.  I don't remember what that age was and I am unable to find the article.  What is the consensus on removing deciduous molars early in these cases?  I have a 7y.o. male patient missing all second bicuspids.  He would not be a good extraction case and if he were older, I would plan to implant the bicuspids (and maybe I still should).  I am thinking that he is young enough to treat him without implants.  Worst case scenario would be that I have to open some space back up again for implants.  Any thoughts?

Dear ESCO,

I have seen late developing lower 2nd premolars( starting at the age of 10 years old). It is rare but it does happen.

Dear Dr Evans,

We would like to draw your attention to a special opportunity to attend
the “1st International Workshop of the International Cleft Lip and Palate
Foundation”. The program is scheduled for December 3rd – 6th, 2005 and
will be held in Chennai, India.

We have assembled a group of internationally distinguished surgeons to
present live surgical demonstration of the latest, proven techniques in
Craniofacial and Cleft surgery. We have also invited a wide range of
experienced lecturers, Plastic surgeons, Craniomaxillofacial surgeons,
Distraction specialists, Geneticists, Pediatricians, Speech Therapists,
Psychologists and Social Workers to present a multi-specialty-clinically
relevant program that focuses on complete rehabilitation of Cleft and
Craniofacial individuals.

The size of the limited – attendance meeting, the structured layout, and
the informal setting will allow faculty and participants ample prospects
to interact and communicate with each other. It would be a great
opportunity for every health worker involved in the treatment of Cleft and
Craniofacial deformities to demonstrate and to learn from individual and
group experiences of colleagues around the world. And it is also an ideal
setting for students to learn from the practical live demonstrations.
We anticipate an excellent enrollment; so if you plan to attend, please
register now. You may also submit your abstract online for oral or poster
presentations at . If you have any questions or
require further information, please contact the Secretariat at , tel. +91-44-24364136, or fax. +91-44-24322907.
