Weekly Question and Answer session. Jul 17, 2019

In today's Q&A webinar, a 12 year old Fijian girl was presented  – who had a class I dental malocclusion on an underlying class II skeletal base – with significant crowding present in her lower anterior region , with a high labially positioned upper left canine and significant lower midline discrepancy.

Discussion involved around whether to extract due to her significant lower crowding, and if so which teeth would be most appropriate and whether they may have been a Bolton discrepancy and how this would impact on the extraction decision.

This case really demonstrates multiple treatment choices  and there was also some discussion around further understanding of the concept of consistent and inconsistent force systems.

I hope you enjoy the recording of this webinar and this helps further enhances your knowledge and skill in orthodontics.

As always, I welcome any questions, comments or cases that you would like to discuss and please email these to me  geoff@orthoed.com.au
