This is an early case on my Advanced Course journey.
My patient was referred by her friend who had completed orthodontic treatment with myself. Her chief complaint were the gaps between her teeth which she had longed to have closed since her teenage years. The gaps were hereditary and with the tongue being a major soft tissue aetiological factor, retention would need to be planned carefully.
This case shows the advantage of a systematic educational pathway and mentorship by an orthodontic specialist giving advice and confidence to the treating dentist.
