Weekly Question and Answer session. Oct 2, 2019

Welcome to this week's OrthoED Q and A webinar.

A fascinating case was presented today, involving a 17 year old female who presented with a class III malocclusion, a mandibular asymmetry which possibly was associated with a mandibular functional shift , and possibly a maxillary occlusal cant as well as impacted upper canines.

This case demonstrates the importance of excellent records and photography, including identifying exactly the location, extent and direction of the possible functional mandibular shift.

This case will make you think a lot more about orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning and I hope that you enjoy this webinar as much as I enjoyed participating in it.

As always, I look forward to your feedback, and please feel free to ask me any questions, make any comments and provide cases for future discussions and you can email me geoff@orthoed.com.au

I hope you enjoy this week’s webinar – and I hope this continues your education process in the area of orthodontics.

Hope you can join us for one of the future live sessions and participate online.
