MIX'n in Wisco - Hands-on Mixed Dentition Orthodontics

As primary care providers of orthodontics and pediatric dentistry all of us prefer to base our treatments on evidence based principles.  We yield to that obligation. As professionals we strive to provide accurate information to parents whose children present with occlusal relationships that, if left untreated, may lead to conditions that can be both unattractive, dysfunctional and become more severe.

The seminar will feature “selections from the following topics”:

  • What are the potential consequences of advising to not treat the anterior and/or posterior cross-bite and wait until all the permanent teeth are in occlusion and what is the best time to correct these problems?
  • What evidence exists for Class 2 treatment timing and what are some of the evidence based treatment options
  • What evidence exists for Class 3 treatment timing and what are some of the evidence based treatment options
  • Which patients have the highest relapse potentials; what factors are responsible for the relapse and what can be done about that risk?
  • Prior to treatment, which specific orthodontic records and informed consent forms are needed?

Gerry offers meaty clinical presentations spiced with a blend of biting wit, edgy humor, and substantially sauced with evidenced based literature. Gerry’s zany, brainy and engaging methods have made him one of today’s most popular educators.  Participants are certain to enjoy a unique educational, clinical experience that is both informative and motivating.
