Red Bank, Middletown, NJ (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
February 2012, Dr. Robert Korwin joined 30 dentists who have either taken the intensive two year POS training course in orthodontics, or who are progressing through POS training to see the eminent Dr. Don McGann of Progressive Orthodontic Seminars teach an information packed two day seminar on updated techniques and procedures for orthodontics. The attendees used laptop computers and the latest IPSoft TM software to diagnose and treatment plan complicated orthodontic cases under the guidance of Dr. McGann.
The discussion topic was the diagnosis and treatment of moderate difficulty 'orthodontic' cases, multidisciplinary cases, and concepts of 'dentofacial orthodontics" for adolescents and adults. Dr. McGann teaches that straightening the teeth is referred to "orthodontics", which commands one level of training, while "dentofacial orthodontics" includes straightening the teeth in addition to changing the facial features for the best appearance. This requires more training to provide more advanced dentofacial orthodontics services.
Cases that are more advanced had two options in the past, orthodontics, or orthognathic surgery. With dentofacial orthopedics, an option between the two was discussed. This can be more successful at changing facial appearance than basic orthodontics while at the same time is much less invasive than the surgical techniques of orthognathic surgery. Dentofacial orthopedics is not as well known as orthognathic surgery, but is highly successful when used with short duration orthodontic pins for skeletal anchorage.
