At what age should orthodontic treatment start? Although the debate is still open and scientific data cannot answer this question by giving a number, there is no question about the fact that early treatment is beneficial for several types of malocclusions characterized by skeletal and or functional problems. Maxillary deficiencies, both in the transverse and in the A-P dimensions, are one of the most common problems requiring an early onset of treatment.
Starting treatment at an early stage, in the deciduous or early mixed dentition, will in many instances increase overall treatment time, since a second phase in the permanent dentition will be probably necessary, and should therefore be done only when the real benefits outweigh the increased costs of a longer treatment.
What should we treat at an early stage? When is it wiser to wait? Why is it so convenient to treat maxillary deficiencies early and which tools should we use? The course will answer these questions, focusing on the principles of a sound diagnosis and highlighting, with the presentation of several clinical cases, the use of new generation tools used in daily clinical practice for the treatment of transverse maxillary deficiencies, skeletal class III malocclusions and other common orthodontic problems.
