Orthodontic finishing and detailing has to tailor the knowledge and expertise of the orthodontist and the cooperation of the Prosthodontist, Maxillofacial surgeon, Plastic Surgeon, Implantologist and any other specialists involved in the treatment. The orthodontist will have to organize the final treatment plan that everyone agrees upon and make sure that the patient is following the guidelines and instructions provided.

We should start treatment early in life but always with the end in mind.
