Session details

Over the last two decades, orthodontic biomaterials have progressed significantly. We will discuss how various orthodontic materials, such as brackets, Class II correctors, arch wires, diagnostic equipment, and so on, have evolved in this lecture. Have they genuinely benefited the specialty, or are we just obsessed, as a result of skewed marketing and advertising strategies?
