Barbara Bimler is a legendary orthodontist! She is world famous for her original design of individual appliances for treatment of various bite pathologies.
During the online course on functional orthodontics Barbara Bimler will describe: - design and use of Bimler appliances (A, B, C, types) - interceptive orthodontic treatment - treatment of children with congenital malformation of maxillofacial area - treatment of adults with functional appliances - treatment of handicapped patients
This is the most intensive online course especially for the doctors who apply functional orthodontic techniques!
Introduction to the Bimler Method
General remarks: “Stomatopedics, a different approach”
Because the Bimler Appliance has no anchorage = maximum safety, no iatrogenic damage.
Replacement of anchorage by the design. Neuromuscular body feedback = individual treatment.
Activation by only 2 pliers.
Three dimensional adaption = 1 appliance per treatment.
Same procedure in adults like in children.
Night time wear only.
No overtreatment = no relapse.
No construction bite necessary.
3 types of appliances according to incisors inclination:
Protruded – retruded – cross bite.
Step-by- step adaptation to progress and growth.
Simultaneous sagittal, transversal and vertical correction, and single tooth movements.
The most effective way for the participants is, to use a plaster model of their own teeth to make an appliance: Nothing can teach as much as own experience. Then they can put it in their own mouth, they can activate it and try out on themselves whatever they want to know.
This is not to correct their crocked teeth but for learning so everybody can do it.
6 basic parts
Step by step
Lower part A type
- frontal splint
- lower loop
- dorsal arches
- frontal springs
- labial arch
- Coffin spring
Difference C type
Replacement of Construction Bite in the articulator Sagittal correction, maybe vertical correction Also will be shown a video about the construction.
Introduction Bimler Ceph
Beginning of Bimler Appliance cephalometric from ENT
Cause for relapse in mouth breathers
Soft or hard tissue problem
Skeletal structure as obstacle: recognition
No “good” facial type
Harmony instead of norm values
Nasal Plane as crucial.
Facial Type – Skeletal harmony
Linear instead of angular measurements
Frankfurt Plane and T-Vertical
Harmony of size: “ranges”
Curve of Spee as Circular System
Use for prognostics
Sample cases type A protruded incisors
«White girl» class II Div. 1 – no crowding
Dennis B. Biprotrusion, crowding
Bianca 8 years Open bite
Carola, open bite, skeletal problem?
Roberto Class II Div. 1 – 12mm overjet
Florian Class II Div 2. – mixed dentition.
Deep bite, mаcrodontia.
Adjustment & Design Bimler Appliance
Simultaneous 3 dimensional therapeutic force
Unity of upper & lower part
Activation by pliers
Treating a patient
Changing the position of a U-curve
Necessity of comfort
Symmetry Change of appliance
Crossbite Bimler Appliance + sample cases
Incisor Position instead of molar relation
Intermaxillary arch after “Eschler”
Importance of posterior
Equiplan as Frontal Bite Block
Articulator vertical opening
Activation with finger pressure
Necessity of comfort
Change of appliance
Milk teeth + No teeth
Deep Bite – 8yrs
Crowding - 8
Cl. III - 7 Cl. III - 5
Cl. III - 6 Cleft Palate 3
Multiple missing – 7
Baby Cleft Palate
Adults and handicapped
Most often, deep Div. 2 in permanent dentition: B-type
14 years Interdental springs in B-Type Vertical improvement in adults?
Arch alignment in adults
Cross bite in permanent dentition Conditions for success
Predictability of success
Extraction in adults …with long-term control
Deep bite & maxillary protrusion …with long-term control
