CHALLENGES OF ADULT TREATMENT: THE INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH
FINISHING IN ORTHODONTICS - LONG TERM STABILITY IN MIND
20th May 2022
Modern orthodontics includes not only children and adolescents, but also more and more adults, thereby increasing the upper age limit. Growing esthetic demands among society means a great number of young adults are seeking orthodontic treatment primarily for esthetic reasons. The goals of these treatments involve great dental change to get the utmost esthetically pleasing face. Older adults with poor dental conditions requiring perio-restorative treatment start their orthodontic treatment to attain a long-term prognosis. The orthodontist faces new challenges treating these patients due to various issues, and these are quite different than routine orthodontic treatment oriented to children and adolescents. This lecture highlights the difficulties and limitations faced by the orthodontist while practicing adult orthodontics, and gives lots of practical clinical answers to overcome them.
- Diagnosis and treatment planning for adults
- Use of diagnostic splints
- Treatment possibilities using temporary anchorage devices
• Orthognathic surgery
In the specialty of orthodontics, treatment results depend on the clinican’s knowledge, manual dexterity, philosophy, and effort. This lecture highlights the lack of common scientific guidelines in orthodontic practice, advocating for the recognition and indentification of clear guidelines that work of place the teeth in positions that will produce the healthiest, most functional, most esthetic, and most stable results possible. With so many factors influencing long-term stability, this lecture gives practical guidelines for approaching long-term stability in orthodontics, focusing on the periodontium, torque control, skeletal and transverse control, occlusion, and the soft tissue profile. A very practical course giving a lot of tips to increase post treatment stability in orthodontics.
