Orthodontics:  Diagnostic dilemmas: case presentation

Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

Abstract: This article reports on a case presenting to a university dental hospital. We encourage readers to assess and develop their own management plan. Potential options and the treatment carried out are discussed.

Clinical relevance: There is often more than one treatment option to manage a malocclusion; however, there may only be one option that is acceptable to the patient in addressing their concerns. Appreciation of alternative treatment plans and implications for patients is important to consider when discussing and consenting for treatment.
