The way we practice orthodontics is rapidly changing due to new technologies giving us many more options to treat our patients. Our practices have become increasingly more versatile. However, clinically speaking the types of malocclusions with their specific challenges remain the same. Therefore, we need to wisely select the right treatment modality for each individual patient. This presentation will discuss different type of digitally driven as well as more traditional treatment modalities to address a variety of clinical challenges.

My goal is to provide unbiased, objective, practical information and give the audience take-home tools to implement immediately. I do not just want to be your entertainment during our time together. Instead of just showing-off a few successes, my goal is to have you LEARN something (from both my own successes and failures) that you can easily implement to benefit your own patients and practices!
In the recent years, dentistry has seen an increased interest in sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and airway awareness. However, with this increased interest, there has also been an increase in half-truth claims and appliance-driven diagnosis, especially regarding expansion and early orthodontic treatment, much of which has not shown true scientific validation.
The tools available as orthodontists have not necessarily changed in the last few decades, nor has biology. Therefore, while we need to be aware of our ability to affect/not affect a patient’s breathing, we also need to understand where our role as orthodontists fits within a whole-patient medicine and dentistry model.
