Orthodontics is not only about esthetics
Hello dear colleagues. Today I’m presenting this case of a patient who was treated with typical dental orthodontic goals. Totally ignoring condyle position and the importance of orthopedic stability. During her previous treatment, she developed signs and symptoms of joint instability and asked her former orthodontist about this. He said it had no relationship to her teeth. She decided to look for a second opinion and eventually came to our clinic. After a thorough and complete diagnosis(a FACE habit) we knew it had a direct relationship with her orthopedic instability. We initiated a second orthodontic treatment applying the FACE treatment goals. We achieved a stable functional occlusion, an asymptomatic patient and stability.
Featured clinical cases
A good result is always preceded by a good diagnosis and ours, are exhaustive. Orthodontics cannot be understood without taking into account the entire ectomatognathic system; teeth are just one of all the structures to consider.
FACE International meeting
It’s so nice to announce our FACE Revolution International Meeting. After a break of almost 18 months, we are again very excited about organizing the next FACE Revolution Meeting.
We are preparing it with great care and enthusiasm. You can’t imagine our desire to meet our friends and have a face-to-face meeting. The screens and online courses are fine, but there is nothing like gathering, enjoying the friendship and seeing each other again.
I want to thank you very much for your patience, since we had to postpone the meeting twice, but trust us it was worth the wait.
We hope to see you in Madrid and do not forget that “treatment mechanics is still the key to success for excellent orthodontics: with or without aligners”.
