Jorge Faber DDS, MS, PhD

Brief CV

Dr. Faber is Professor of Evidence Based Dentistry and Orthodontics at the Dental Post-Graduate Program of the University of Brasilia. He was pioneer in skeletal anchorage, sleep apnea treatment, 3D printing in orthodontics, and surgery first.

He served for 11 years as editor-in-chief of the Journal of the World Federation of Orthodontists and the Dental Press Journal of Orthodontics.

He holds a PhD degree on Biology-Morphology, and a master’s degree in Orthodontics, and is a Diplomate of the Brazilian Board of Orthodontics. Dr. Faber has lectured extensively in many countries and has published over 100 articles in scientific journals.

He also maintains a private practice in Brasilia.


Complex space closure of missing teeth with TADs (1 hour)

A missing tooth can offer bold challenges to orthodontic treatment. The treatment plan can include the maintenance of space for rehabilitation by an implant-supported prosthesis. However, in many cases, it might be advantageous to close the space, especially when the gap closure provides superior esthetic results, or when the patient simply does not want to receive implant rehabilitation. Commonly, the use of TADs as anchorage is beneficial to the latter form of treatment.

In some cases, the TAD is - be it a miniplate or a mini-screw - crucial to achieve excellent treatment results, and then, the applied orthodontic mechanics has several specificities.

This conference will tackle the treatment protocol used to close the space of missing teeth with miniplates, as well as the advantages and limitations of this treatment modality.


Surgical Orthodontic Treatment for Sleep Apnea (2 hours)

Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) have an associated risk for cardiovascular events, including arterial hypertension, stroke, and arrhythmias. 

Besides, clinical manifestations are night snoring, headache when patient wakes up, day-time sleepiness and cognitive performance impairment. There is evidence that maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) is the most successful surgical treatment for OSAS. However, MMA through conventional surgical-orthodontic treatment comprises a pre-surgical orthodontic stage, which might not be adequate unless the patient uses a CPAP.

A surgery-first approach eliminates orthodontic preparation for orthognathic surgery.

This lecture will cover the diagnosis and MMA treatment planning for OSAS under the light of the 14-year clinical experience with surgery first approach, illustrated with a case series to exemplify and contrast the several pieces of evidence available on the literature.


Obstructive Sleep Apnea treatment in children and adults: An evidence-based approach (2 hours)

Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) have an associated risk for cardiovascular events, including arterial hypertension, stroke, and arrhythmias.  Besides, psychologically speaking, adult patients tend to present with anxiety and mood disorders, whereas there is mounting evidence that in young patients sleep disorders lead to daytime disturbances closely mimicking attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Furthermore, patients could have their ADHD eliminated if their habitual snoring and any associated symptoms of sleep-related breathing disorders are effectively treated.

In the presence of significant snoring orthodontists must request a polysomnography (PSG). There are distinct approaches to treat adults, and preadolescent and adolescent patients. They range from maxillary expansion to mandibular advancement splints and surgical maxillomandibular advancement.

This lecture will focus on the proper diagnosis and treatment of OSAS. The role of the orthodontist in ADHD treatment will be addressed. The latest evidence will be discussed under the light of the 25-year clinical experience with mandibular advancement splints.


Miniplates as Anchorage: Expanding the limits of orthodontic treatment (4 hours)

Skeletal anchorage has expanded the limits of orthodontic treatment.  The spectrum of applications includes simultaneous retraction and/or protraction of upper and lower dentition. These movements can be implemented on the treatment of bialveolar dental protrusion, Class II and Class III malocclusions.

This lecture will address several clinical applications with long term results, as well as present the advantages and limitations of this technique. Important issues associated with the surgical strategy will also be considered.


Orthodontic Treatment with aligners for the Elderly Patient: Old is New (1 hour)

Historically, orthodontic treatment has been entwined with the treatment of children and adolescents. It was only from the moment adults with complete dentition began to emerge that techniques and protocols were developed to care for patients in this age group.

A portion of the population that has grown into adults with good dentition 20 years ago has now become elderly as the chances of us humans to reach an advanced age is increasing. Relatively little attention has been devoted to the smile esthetics to old people.

This presentation will focus on a new treatment protocol for elderly patients, based on a clinical trial that we have conducted about this subject.
