Share Abstract:

Latex elastic-induced periodontal damage: A case report on the subsequent orthodontic management


Pages: 685-690
PMID: 9180405

Proper management of a malocclusion relies on a basic understanding of the development of the dentition and the craniofacial complex. Diagnosis should only be formulated after all the relevant diagnostic records, including clinical examination and history, are reviewed. Armed with this information, the dentist forms the treatment plan. The mere occurrence of a malocclusion does not constitute a need for treatment. Injudicious intervention can be counterproductive or destructive. Through a case report, the deleterious effects of improper case management and questionable treatment mechanics are highlighted. The subsequent orthodontic management emphasizes the principles and techniques for the successful treatment of the patient in question.
