Leszek Sawicki 8.2.23
My name is Leszek Sawicki, I am from Gdynia, Poland.
Today I would like to present a case of cooperation between Orthodontist (Monika Sawicka) and Prosthodontist (me), but first we would like to thank Domingo Martín, DrDomingo Martin Salvador and Alberto Canábez for their support and mentorship. Thank you for everything!
This case highlights the importance of diagnosis, defining the same treatment goals for Prostho and Ortho, and the need for good communication. We followed the FACE philosophy – TMJ stability first.
In this case, I encountered some difficulties – the patient did not allow for any changes on his lower six anterior teeth. Thus, the goal was to finish the case with function and achieve the perfect centric spots despite the limitations. Sometimes the perfect plan has to be modified without neglecting the principles.
See you in June in Bucharest, Romania at FACE International Meeting 2023.
Polish Couple, Monika and Leszek
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”.
