Michel Le Gall

Short CV

Michel Le Gall maintains a private practice in Aubagne (France) from 1983 through 2020. He received his degree in Dental Science from the University of Marseille, France. He completed a post-graduate program in Orthodontics and DentoFacial Orthopedics in the same university in 1986. He got a Masters of Science in Biological Orthopedics’ Sciences and his PhD degree from the University of Marseille in the field of mechanical-energy in 2009. He obtains his Phd degree in 2011 for a work based on tribology at the interface between bracket, wire and ligature Pr. Michel Le Gall is currently the Head of the Unit of Orthodontics and DentoFacial Orthopedics at the University Hospital of Marseille. He is involved in pre-doctorate and post-doctorate research as the Director of the Post Graduate Program in Orthodontics as well as a collaborator in the Laboratory of Biomechanical Application.
He is the co-founder with Dr Stefano Troiani of GET (Goals-Evidence-Treatment), which combine the advantages of the Experience Brackets with a new and unique prescription in the anterior region.
He is a Diplomate of the French Board of Orthodontics, a member of several societies of Orthodontics and the author and co-author in several international publications.
He is currently president of the French society of dento-facial orthopedics and future scientific president for the years 2024 and 2025 of the French Federation of

GET philosophy
The originality of the GET technique lies in the use of a .020x.028-in bracket for the maxillary and mandibular incisors. What are the mechanical and clinical interests during the different phas`es of treatment?

Management of anterior agenesis
The absence of maxillary lateral incisors creates a major aesthetic, occlusal and functional problem considering the strategic position of these in the smile. The two commonly used orthodontic options are gap opening with prosthetic replacement or gap closure with replacement of missing lateral incisors by the canines. In addition to the many decision-making factors to be taken into account for an individualized solution, whatever the option chosen, dental arcade being incomplete, the solution is never a compromise.

Early interceptive surgery: a new paradigm?
In cases of excessive skeletal dysmorphism, growth is necessarily too disturbed to normalize it by orthodontic or orthopedic treatment alone. And if you wait until adulthood to operate, the whole face could be abnormal. So why not consider early interceptive surgery?

Lecture: Class III Dysmorphias. When and how to start?

If there is a consensus on the need for early treatment, it is that which concerns class III dysmorphia. The ideal age for intervention would be during primary dentition or at the beginning of the mixed dentition phase.
Most authors recognize the usefulness of these treatments. The objective is to correct the dysmorphia partially or completely, or at least to prevent it from getting worse.
For many, it is an “emergency” therapeutic procedure, which aims primarily to neutralize an unfavorable functional matrix associated with disrupted facial growth but if there are excessively significant skeletal anomalies, growth is necessarily too disrupted for it to be possible to normalize it through orthodontic or orthopedic treatment alone. And if we wait until adulthood to operate, the entire face is abnormal.
We will address these different therapeutic aspects through different clinical cases.
