Common eruption problems in the mixed dentition: What to look for

Presentation Description

The general dental practitioner is at the forefront when it comes to dealing with early occlusal development. In many instances there are situations where the practitioner is required to make decisions about orthodontic treatment needs, whether an early intervention may be called for or the referral to a specialist is required. This lecture discusses important points in occlusal development and landmarks the clinician should look out for. It discusses common eruption problems, how to address them and the role of the general dental practitioner in early detection of deviations from normal development. The timing for early intervention is also discussed.
