ORTHODONTICS IN ADULTS - BLESSING OR CURSE, BUT A MUST
14th April 2023
In recent years the public’s perception that orthodontics is also possible for adults has increased significantly. Almost at the same time, not only the variety of treatment devices has increased, but also the interdisciplinary possibilities. Unfortumately most probably influenced by social media, the expectations of adult patients have also increased.
This course comes from a clinical for the clinician and presents many clinical examples, personal stories in the context of current literature to discuss the possibilities and limits of orthodontic treatment for adults.
• Special diagnostics in adult patients – CBCT/MRI, periodontal examinations, TMJ and more
• Limits and limitations of orthodontic appliances, including aligners, hybrid techniques and TADs
• Interdisciplinary collaboration – prosthodontics, surgery, periodontology and more
• Finishing and esthetics – as well as finishing strategies
• And much more…
