"Whether you have dabbled a little in the ortho arena or do it regularly, the combination of GNM orthotics and orthodontic practice is critical to success in so many cases. Recognizing how Ortho works and what i can and SHOULD accomplish for you when you work with specialists or you want to gain a keen understanding of how Ortho can enhance your restorative cases...THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU!" Orthodontic is more than just learning which bracket or wire system to use. It is about developing the knowledge, skills and ability to visualize the whole treatment "orthopedically". Develop the surrounding tissue and bony arches to a physiologic quantifiable position is one of key distinguishing factors in our GNM orthodontic approach. Comprehending and applying the data strategically is key to appropriately applying the techniques necessary to develop and move teeth and skeletal relationships. Scientific methodology that satisfy bio- physiologic relationships in the orthopedic diagnosis is addressed starting from point A to point Z - putting the pieces together in an orderly fashion to finish the case physiologically. Learning sound laws and principles of orthodontics as well as GNM orthopedic growth and development is key to stable occlusion and facial esthetics. This is the foundational course with manuals that are super helpful and used to refer back to so that the student can check on things as the Ortho patients come into ones practice or return to your practice after referral or for hygiene checks. Orthodontic tools and records will be sequenced to support the bigger perspective of this style of treatment. The physiologic bite record sets the stage to establish a corrected orthopedic position prior to any implementation of fixed and or removable orthodontic procedures. Diagnostic standards of homeostasis of the cranio-mandibular and cervical complex is a key concept that distinguishes a comprehensive orthodontic curriculum, instilling in each student the importance of occlusal stability. Objective documentation and records along with an understanding of scan interpretation validate and support dentofacial and cervical alignment protocols and orthodontic and orthopedic mechanics is presented throughout the curriculum.
