Weekly Question and Answer session. Jul 31, 2019

We had an exceptional Q and A session today, and I hope that you gain a lot of insight into orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning.

Two patients were presented. The first was a 19 year old female, who had a unilateral class II buccal relationship, with proclined upper incisors, her upper dental midline slightly deviated to the right and are totally blocked out 45 . Her main concern was her protruding upper anterior teeth – and a very interesting discussion was had with regards to the ideal treatment plan – and if we were to extract a tooth on the upper left side, how we could maintain the upper midline position.

The second case was a 45 year old male – with a significant class II dental/skeletal malocclusion and he was also missing his upper left second premolar and missing a few lower right posterior teeth. His chief complaint was is deep overbite and impingement of his palatal mucosa . This is a fascinating case with regards to diagnosis and ideal and compromised treatment plans.
