Domingo Martín 31.8.20

To kick off the new semester, today I present a 29 yr old female who comes to the office complaining of TMJ pain, tooth wear and crooked teeth(sic) As in all cases we start with a THOROUGH DIAGNOSIS PROTOCOL.

Although this is nothing new, we are now in a moment in orthodontics where the dominating culture has transferred it’s ideas to the orthodontic diagnostic process. Words like “just do it” …..”keep it simple sir” “you can make it happen» «Everything is design, everything”…is what has permeated the minds of many young orthodontists today.

 So with this in mind, why spend time, effort and money to diagnose…it makes no sense. Just align the teeth and get it over with. However if we look at our profession as more than just a cosmetic profession we will see and understand the importance of a complete diagnostic protocol to build the foundations for future success. 

In my presentation I will stress the importance of a diagnostic protocol that leaves no stone unturned and looks at each and every aspect of the stomatognathic system.

A Complete Diagnosis is the Key to Success ……..#occlusionmatters

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”.
