Orthodontics 1

Theoretical and practical orthodontic training

This course will give you a clear understanding of normal growth and development of the dento-facial complex and and you'll gain the skills to recognise developing malocclusion.

Course overview

For orthodontic treatment to be successful at any level, it is essential to have a clear understanding of normal growth and development of the dento-facial complex and to possess the skills to recognise developing malocclusion.

The course provides participants with this knowledge, which participants can build upon to improve their diagnostic skills. The scope of treatment and appliances that could be part of general practice is included. Practical sessions include cephalometric analysis.

Treatment with selected removable and fixed appliances will be discussed. With this knowledge, course participants if they so wish, may be able to participate in Orthodontics II which is more clinically based and of longer duration. As a stand-alone course, participants will develop skills to recognise abnormal occlusions in both the developing and permanent dentitions, with guidelines for treatment options.
