TX Planning Session – 2nd September 2020

A very interesting case of a 13 year old male who presents in the permanent dentition with a perfect Class I buccal relationship posteriorly, but with his lower midline significantly deviated to the left and as a result he has a blocked out and labially positioned 33 which is also severely distantly inclined

This case really demonstrates the important role of risk assessment in formulating an ideal treatment plan for an individual patient – and I believe reiterates the fact that conventional approaches may not always be the best approach for an individual patient or dentist to adopt. I would be very interested in how you would manage this patient and whether you would see the nuances associated with this patient -especially if you were to manage it orthodontically with 4 premolar extractions as the typical conventional orthodontic approach.

I hope that you find this webinar to be enjoyable and thought-provoking and as always I value your feedback, comments, questions and hope that you can provide us with cases to discuss in the future. Please feel free to contact me geoff@orthoed.com.au
