Description

Identifying and pursuing appropriate treatment objectives, is a very important step that determines the quality of the orthodontic result. This lecture will delineate optimal and evidence-based goals, during orthodontic finishing. The importance of facial balance, incisor position and inclination, transverse coordination, anterior and posterior occlusal relationships, as well as how to attain these objectives, will be discussed. A description of Biomechanical Strategies and Troubleshooting, will be provided with some specific case examples.

Objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of appropriate facial and dental goals during finishing
  • Appreciate the esthetic significance of incisor position and inclination
  • Biomechanical strategies for optimal finishing
  • Recognize and resolve challenges that may preclude an excellent finish.
