May 4, 2019 2:10pm ‐ May 4, 2019 3:10pm

Orthodontic technology continues to evolve to offer patients ever more esthetic options for completing their orthodontic treatment.

These treatment modalities share some important similarities, and this patient population is unique. I will review some of the mechanical challenges of lingual orthodontics and some of the patient psychology that can make lingual orthodontics particularly challenging for providers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the unique challenges of a pre-programmed and customized (lingual) appliance for the delivery of orthodotnic force.
  • Recognize the importance of esthetic orthodontics and the psychological factors that drive patients toward lingual orthodontic treatment.
