AS17B19B - Clinical Prejudices That Make a Difference

Apr 23, 2017 8:45am ‐ Apr 23, 2017 9:30am


Beliefs without the support of evidence are prejudices. This lecture will introduce various orthodontic prejudices, some are new and some have been around a long time. Clinical beliefs not supported by the literature lead to ineffective and/or inefficient treatments. It will be shown that a number of existing beliefs pertaining to craniofacial growth, the development of malocclusions, post-treatment changes and treatment approaches need to be reconsidered.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify why some treatment approaches to accelerate tooth do not work.
  • Identify how and why mandibular orthopedics are possible.
  • Identify how skeletal malocclusion develop and why it makes a difference.
