Description

Statistics have proven that malocclusions at an early age left untreated will worsen over time. Early treatment has been proven to reduce the cost of fixed braces and also to significantly reduce the time in fixed braces. Parents and children all want non-extraction and non-surgical treatment. When orthodontic-orthopedic treatment is initiated early the need for extractions of permanent teeth and surgical corrections of the malocclusion is eliminated in 95% of the cases. It has been estimated that as many as 70% of children have some form of malocclusion and yet the majority of orthodontic clinicians are choosing not to treat these patients. This is an excellent opportunity for general dentists to learn how to help these patients and at the same time increase their practice income.

Two-Phase Treatment

Phase One: Orthopedic Phase Mixed dentition (Age 5-11), Functional appliances Non-Extraction, Elimination of functional and skeletal problems

Phase Two: Orthodontic Phase Permanent dentition (Age 12-14), Fixed braces to solve dental problems such as crooked teeth and to close spaces

90% of the face is developed by age 12. If you want to modify the growth of children while they are actively growing you must use functional appliances.

Objectives

E-Learning Outcome:
• Learn to recognize your patients that may be helped with functional appliances

• Learn how functional appliances can improve your patients appearance and help prevent the need for extraction of permanent teeth in the future
