8 International congress of Iranian association of orthodontists(19-21 may 2010)
Presentation of proposal algorithm for facilitation of treatment planning in dentofacial deformities( case studies)
Proper dignosis and rational treatment planning which are the most important mission of orthodontists and general practitioner are based on scientific data and evaluation of possible clinical solutions.
These data derived form various sources like pattern in growth and development, dental and occlusal development, skeletal and facial classification, oral functions and…. .
Orthodontic diagnosis reguires a broad overview of the patient situation and must be comprehensive, not focused on limited aspect of orthodontic problems.
On the other hand, diagnosticdata may be so plenty and overlapped that make the planning of optimal treatment complex and overlooked.
In this lecture some topical diagnostic data as a algorithm are mentioned classifically and have been presented in priority orders.
This method guides the general practitioner to plan the orthodontis treatment easier and faster.
The main structural concept in this classification isbuilt on age,dimension of deformities, and type of deformities and intensity of problems.
How the efficacy of proposal method is has been shown in case presentations.
