Orthodontic or orthopedic management in infancy, primary, mixed and permanent dentition and after the completion of facial growth will be discussed. The focus of this lecture will be on current concepts in the interdisciplinary approach to treatment planning and treatment sequencing during each phase of orthodontic treatment.
Evaluate the timing and objectives of orthodontic interventions during the different phases of grow.
Apply pre and post secondary alveolar bone graft orthodontics.
Analyze long-term outcomes of orthodontic treatment.
