ORTHODONTICS: How to Prevent Flaring and Round Tripping


The choice of employing non-extraction therapy on all patients not only to maintains or enhances upper lip and mid face for optimal support as the patient ages, but also allows for functional occlusion which is the key to treatment stability.



Upon completion of this webinar doctors should be able to identify the need for arch development and understand the use of simple wire sequence together with disarticulation and early light "through the bite" elastics — mechanics that respect periodontal health and use light forces to create space and increase the transverse occlusion. 

They will be able to implement non-extraction therapy using effective, simple mechanics that minimize complicated treatment protocols and extractions and eliminate use of many painful auxiliaries, such as expanders.
