In a general dentistry practice it is very common to see patients who have orthodontic relapse and want some esthetic correction, or patients who have never had orthodontic treatment but are interested in doing orthodontics now that they are adults. Typically many dentists would simply refer patients to an orthodontist or suggest veneers or crowns.
However many patients are not receptive to shaving down perfectly good teeth to address their esthetic concerns nor prepared to undergo extensive orthodontic treatment. For some orthodontics is strictly cosmetic, however we know that crowded teeth can make it hard for patients to perform adequate homecare which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal problems. These patients are also candidates for short term or aligner type of orthodontics.
Many patients are also not concerned about their bite or back teeth, only that their front teeth are crowded and unsightly. Imagine if you could provide limited orthodontic treatment to your patients and complete necessary periodontal and root canal therapy as well as finish the case with in-office fabrication of crowns. Using available technologies can allow the general dentist to comfortably and confidently treat these patients making it a very rewarding experience for the patient and dentist. Transforming a smile is both rewarding and satisfying not only to the patient but also to the dentist. This course will illustrate how to treat a patient with several orthodontic treatment modalities that have protocols that eliminate much of the uncertainty of treatment and can actually make limited orthodontic treatment fun and rewarding.
