Designing and management of removable orthodontic plates

Faramarz Mojtahedzadeh
Former Assistant Professor, Dept. of Orthodontics, Dental School, Tehran University of Medical Sciences

Dentists are usually the first line among healthcare professionals to detect and examine patients suffering from a malocclusion. The dental curriculum has also taken this issue into consideration and has devoted a part of this program to teaching orthodontic treatment with removable appliances. But the fact is that an overcrowded dental curriculum may not provide the opportunity for students to fully master the designing and management of removable appliances. This may result in graduates who are reluctant to provide removable orthodontic treatment, and in rare cases, leaving the responsibility of appliance designing to the laboratory technician. This is a major problem because proper designing of removable plates is possible only if a correct treatment plan, resulting from a sound diagnosis and based on adequate diagnostic records are obtained.
This workshop is planned with considering the aforementioned inadequacies, and hoping that participants gain more confidence and find a better opportunity to treat orthodontic patients with removable appliances.
Based on the allotted time, the main issues that shall be discussed in this workshop are:
•Pros and cons of removable orthodontic appliances.
•Introducing commonly used elements.
•Clinical issues in delivering and managing appliances.
•Troubleshooting in treatment and detecting fabrication flaws.
