Weekly Question and Answer session. Oct 10, 2018

We had another very informative Q and A session on the 10th of October with an adult patient who had a class 3 malocclusion and was missing her 15.

This patient had seen numerous orthodontists who suggested surgery, this patient was treated with a nonsurgical approach – and our discussion today revolved around the correct diagnosis, and planning and sequencing treatment to obtain an excellent result.

This case could have been treated by any practitioner with purely understanding the risks and using sequencing and mechanics to mitigate those anticipated risks. I hope you enjoy listening to this case and hope that you can join us in future sessions.
