Lecture synopsis

  • Lecture Sysnopsis
    • Since there is a varied opinion amongst Orthodontic clinicians as to when the treatment be initiated in a growing child, many a times intervention gets delayed when it should have been started early or at times started too early, which eventually burns the compliance of the patient.
    • On one hand, orthodontic literature is packed with articles suggesting different methods to access the growth status, on the other, lot of articles supporting early treatment/two phase treatment versus Single phase therapy are also available which makes the issue even more complicated.
    • Through this presentation the author attempts to clear the cloud by describing the current understanding of the issue and suggesting the modalities and protocols in such situations on the basis of skeletal growth evaluation by simple techniques as well.
