One of the most valuable services I provide is orthodontic screenings for young patients.
Before kids get all their permanent teeth, an orthodontic screening can help me predict how teeth will erupt and how jaws will relate, and if there will be problems as they grow. Screening kids early helps me to better guide their growth to have better occlusion and long term health.
Unfortunately, some parents think of braces as a “teenager” thing. They may not understand how two phase orthodontics can help their kids and don’t want to consider orthodontics on their young children. Instead of having a difficult consultation, inform your patients' families effectively.
The Finishing Stage of orthodontics is a fine balance of both art and science, and can often be one of the most stressful aspects of an orthodontic case. Proper finishing techniques are critical to ensuring well-balanced occlusion and long-term stability.
POS tenured instructor, Dr. Jeffery Taylor, details some of the most common errors he sees in case finishing. We hope that being aware of these ahead of time will prevent you from making these mistakes in your own cases. If you’re looking to further improve your case finishing techniques, our 2-day class will provide you with the hands-on training and protocols to take the stress out of the finishing stage.
