Decisions regarding smile-aesthetics, lip curvature, extractions, expansion, and Class II correction will all be discussed and illustrated with individual patient treatment records.
This will be a presentation for all dentists with an interest in contemporary orthodontics, regardless of whether they actually provide active orthodontic treatment in their practices. Michael Woods will use a large body of his own published work to show that an understanding of the relevance of rigorously-focussed clinical research is essential if patients are to be treated to a high standard – at least that which would be aimed for when treating one’s own family members. Decisions regarding smile-aesthetics, lip curvature, extractions, expansion, and Class II correction will all be discussed and illustrated with individual patient treatment records. The key with all of this is to provide clinicians with the ability to make honest treatment decisions and to then take long-term responsibility for the outcomes of those decisions.
