New Frontiers in orthodontics aims to express the ongoing debate in orthodontics. Orthodontics is a dentistry area in continuous evolution, which draws from the most recent technological innovations, as well as from the most accredited scientific reports and practical experience, the basis for updating knowledge in the field. This Special Issue provides a comprehensive view of the state-of-art in orthodontics, outlined by research experts from different countries, to clarify emerging directions in the orthodontic field.
Recent years have seen an increased demand for orthodontic treatment from both adolescents and adults, and in addition, patient and clinician expectations of treatment outcomes continue to rise. Further, the desire for more aesthetic materials has resulted in both smaller and/or invisible appliances. The communication between patient and doctor has also improved due to new technology. Today, patients can see a 3D model of their teeth and how it will change with treatment, knowing their treatment outcomes before agreeing to their treatment plan.
All these innovations make it necessary to constantly update our knowledge with the help of experts and clinicians, to acquire and consolidate new skills more and more. With this aim, the present Special Issue covers a variety of topics, including technological innovations, orthodontic materials, the management of malocclusion and temporomandibular disorders, the epidemiology and risk factors in orthodontics, the preventive approach to malocclusions and temporomandibular disorders, and the differences between growing and adult patients.
