Focus has shifted from the technical and mechanical excellence of the past and dental professionals are increasingly looking towards more health driven, biological, evidence-based and effective approaches to correcting malocclusion. As the incidence of malocclusion in 21st century children approaches 100 per cent the demand for orthodontic treatment has never been greater.
