2018 Annual Session Conference


Connecting the Past, Present and Future with Fundamentals that do not Change with Time


May 7, 2018 8:00am ‐ May 7, 2018 8:45am

Description

As time progresses in any scientific field, it is too often assumed that what is “new” is better than what is “old.” However, in orthodontics there are Laws of Equilibrium that will be trustworthy forever, as LAWS that govern orthodontic tooth movement do not change with time. Understanding and applying these LAWS in everyday orthodontics will clearly show that many so-called advances are nothing more than a failure to recognize that such “advances” were never required in the first place. This lecture will show that much of what has been taught mechanically is the cause of undesirable tooth movements while what we have been taught to avoid in many cases is the solution to avoiding such undesirable movements.

Learning Objectives:

  • Avoid the use of loops in orthodontic treatment. 
  • Essentially eliminate patient cooperation except for 1) Brush your teeth and 2) Keep your appointments. 
  • Discover that Round Wire has many advantages over Rectangular Wire and Partial Appliances have many advantages over Full Appliances.
