Orthodontic Retention and Stability: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

September 29, 2018
Halifax, NS

The three major goals of orthodontic treatment are ideal function, ideal aesthetics, and stability of results. The challenge of retaining orthodontic results and ensuring long term stability remains the biggest challenge to every dentist and orthodontist.

This evidence-based lecture will be on both short-term and long-term orthodontic treatment stability.

Key Learning Objectives:
