Event Details


  • Class IIIs. Do you know the difference between a true Class III and a pseudo Class III malocclusion?
  • A pseudo Class III has an excellent prognosis and the mandible soon drops back into Class I and makes you look like a truly gifted clinician.
  • A true Class III – refer.
  • There are also the Class I cases with a Class III tendency.
  • Aligners can make Class IIIs worse because they encourage an anterior mandibular rotation.
  • If you can recognise a Class III tendency, then a single lower incisor extraction might be the best treatment – see how important correct diagnosis is.
  • But you need to know how to keep the roots parallel.
  • Spacing and interdisciplinary treatment. Why are the teeth spaced?
  • Is it small teeth and large jaws or tongue involvement?
  • You’ll probably need bonded lingual retainers afterwards, otherwise the gaps are likely to reappear.
  • We’ll explore one way to make and place bonded lingual retainers.
  • Peg laterals not only look unsightly, they are responsible for Bolton discrepancies.   We’ll look at setting up cases for veneers on the upper peg laterals.
  • Before that implant is placed, you’ll need at least 6mm of space and parallel roots. How do you achieve that?

    Dr Morris Rapaport

    Specialist Orthodontist

    Morris Rapaport first graduated in 1976 and then obtained a MDSc in Orthodontics from the University of Sydney in 1980. He is in specialist orthodontic practice, is a part time lecturer at The University of Sydney and is an Invisalign Platinum Provider. He has been involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching for decades and has lectured nationally and internationally.

    Morris has had a long interest in functional appliances and in the early 1990’s developed a course in the clinical use and theoretical underpinning of functional appliances, which he delivers annually to the Sydney University postgraduate students. After receiving an award for “outstanding presentation and treatment” of a case he began treating in 1991 with the then new Clark Twin Blocks, he published a paper in the Australian Orthodontic Journal (March 1998) demonstrating the application of the Bass Aesthetic Analysis in functional appliance diagnosis.

    Morris is well known for his ability to simplify complex issues and presents them using liberal doses of humour to make lectures not only highly accessible, but enjoyable and memorable.
