Orthodontics

Overview


Orthodontics is much more than a cosmetic field in today's dental practice. The extremely high incidence of orthodontic problems in the population and introduction of new techniques in the field of orthodontics have encouraged the general practitioners and other dental specialists to gather a more through knowledge of orthodontics. This one year training programme is a modest attempt to provide more knowledge regarding Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthodopedics. On the other hand this Skill enhancement programme will provide sufficient information to the participant to refer the cases that require the attention of a specialist, to the nearby consultant or resident orthodontist. Orthodontics like all the other specialities of dentistry stands on three pillars of prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Without a basic foundation, diagnosis and treatment planning for a malocclusion, it becomes difficult and misguided exercise for which prospective patients will bear the consequences.
