Early Orthodontic Treatment Suitable For The General Practice Office

About this Seminar

Category 1

For the average general practitioner, early intervention for a skeletal malocclusion (Class II, Class III, Open Bite, Transverse Discrepancy, Asymmetry, etc.), can be challenging and mechanics may be comprehensive. However, there is an abundance of other orthodontic problems which can benefit from early intervention, regardless whether the provider is a specialist or a general practitioner.

This lecture will summarize many of the arguments for and against early treatment and present a variety of cases to illustrate how early recognition, diagnosis and treatment, with “fixed” and/or removable appliances, can benefit the patient.
