A NEW online resource to help patients make decisions about treatment has been launched by the British Orthodontic Society.
Orthodontics for Adults is designed for patients to read before they see a clinician.
It is divided into four parts, looking at the “why, how, where and who”. Each section has key points or tips that guide the patient towards the information they need to make the right decision.
It covers areas such as brace types; teeth straightening; snoring and sleep apnoea; and orthognathic treatment, as well as FAQs about adult orthodontics.
The guide is accompanied by a video featuring Professor Tim Newton, professor of psychology as applied to dentistry, who advises on which questions to ask a clinician.
