Management of the Orthodontic Patient

This lecture will present the preparation and maintenance of the orthodontic patient.From preparing the patient prior to the placement of the orthodontic appliance and recommendations of how to maintain good oral health and hygiene during the treatment phase...

Special attention will be given to the "debonding technique" after the orthodontic appliance has been removed by the dentist to make sure that the tooth surface is "free" of the residual adhesive that can cause dental plaque retention (biofilm), thus creating a smooth tooth surface.

As a novelty, a quick presentation of a new type of toothbrush and toothbrushing technique will be presented that is the "Tailored Toothbrush".
