    Dr. Vittorio Cacciafesta received his dental training at the University of Naples “Federico II”, Italy. From July 1995 until August 1996 he was Research Fellow at the Department of Orthodontics, Humboldt-University of Berlin, Germany. From September 1996 until August 1999 he was Orthodontic Resident at the Department of Orthodontics, Royal Dental College, Aarhus University, Denmark, where he received the Specialty and Master of Science in Orthodontics. He is “Dottore di Ricerca” (Research Doctorate) in Biotechnology of Dental Materials. From 1999 to 2009 he was Assistant Clinical Professor at the Department of Orthodontics, University of Pavia, Italy. From 1999 until 2002 he was Visiting Professor at the Department of Orthodontics, Aarhus University, Denmark, and Visiting Professor at Temple University, Philadelphia, USA.
    He has published over 100 refereed publications, 1 book and 4 book chapters. He is Co-Editor of “Ortodonzia Clinica”, Associate Editor of “Progress in Orthodontics”, and Referee for the following scientific journals: “American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics”, “Angle Orthodontist”, “European Journal of Orthodontics”, “Journal of Clinical Orthodontics”, “Orthodontics and Craniofacial Research”, “Ortognatodonzia Italiana”. His main research interests are bonding materials, brackets, metallurgy, friction between brackets and wires. His main clinical interests are biomechanics, lingual orthodontics and orthodontic treatment of adults. He has been lecturing extensively in Europe, Middle East, Asia and North and South America.

AIMS of the Course

Delegates who attend this orthodontic course will be given the tools, techniques and confidence to immediately treat moderate to difficult cases in their own practices. You will learn about the fundamental bases of multibracket orthodontics and understand the importance of biomechanics in the various treatment phases with and without TADs.
You will learn about the clinical principles and limitations of different orthodontic appliances and self-ligating bracket systems and anchorage reinforcement with TADs.
You will understand the actual archwire sequences in the different malocclusions, providing therapeutical concepts and clinical tips for each clinical situation, especially in the management of anchorage control and extraction cases.  You will see how orthodontics has changed its mechanics since the introduction of cortical anchorage and TADs. You will learn and try onto typodonts where it is safe to insert miniscrews and how to fabricate the anchorage for various clinical situations (videos and hands-on). Several exercises will be conducted onto typodonts.
You will learn the importance of a careful diagnosis and how to screen your patients to select those cases suitable for self-ligating multibracket therapy with or without mini-implants, with or without extractions, with or without orthognathic surgery.
The course will include typodont exercises to support the theoretical lectures. There will also be opportunities to bring along your own cases for discussion.
