A question to be asked: Do we see problems during and/or after our orthodontic treatments? And the answer is for sure: yes we do. The next question would be, what could be the etiology of those problems. Once we could find out the reasons of those problems, it is maybe possible to avoid them in the future, getting better treatment results and better stability.
Our Orthodontic treatment starts with a clinical examination, starting records and treatment planning.
During my 32 years of clinical orthodontic work, I experienced that a lot of our treatment problems are caused by poor records and/or treatment planning mistakes. Non extraction approach in extraction cases or wrong extractions make our orthodontic treatment more difficult, often with only compromised end results.
Biomechanical errors are also a big source of failure. Anchorage control, correcting cross-bites, aligning impacted teeth, are only a few examples of our daily mechanical challenges.
This course will focus on:
- Proper diagnosis and treatment planning
- Extraction or Non extraction
- Treatment of asymmetries
- Impacted teeth
- Correct transvers width
- Biomechanical solutions: The Mulligan principles.
- A very clinical course with a lot of tips and tricks to avoid several our daily treatment problems.
