Dr. Abraham Kyriakides
Smile from patient’s perspective what we see is not always what the patient wants.
Several cases will be presented in this presentation where orthodontics is not the only issue that the patient ask for. With the rapidly growing number of adults seeking our help and our colleagues asking for our expertise the orthodontics should be prepared to play there invaluable role. From minor touch to major movements our knowledge and skills are unreplaceable and most of the time the most conservative ones. Helping general dentist, prosthodontist or periodontist or any other discipline to give to our patient the best possible fundamentals to achieve excellent results is the ultimate goal. Multidisciplinary approach is not necessary the best approach. The INTERDISCIPLINARY is what we all need for both diagnosis and treatment. We are all playing in an orchestra; the roles should be clear but with respect to each other and to the patient’s main concern.
Our armamentarium is full of new weapons that even the patients are well aware of Tads, Aligners, non-invasive or minor intervention techniques that are advertised in the new digital world. We are the experts to see the mouth and the patient as a whole entity and to give them our honest and more suitable solution to their smile.
