The Non-Compliance Issue

...Our results confirm the reaction of the orthodontists in my recent Grand Rounds audience: patient non-compliance remains a serious concern for our specialty.That being said, it is interesting to note that an appliance system heavily dependent on patient compliance, Invisalign, is gaining such a large market share in orthodontics. My best-guess explanation is that patients’ demand for smile improvement without obvious fixed appliances is such a strong motivator that they are more than willing to cooperate with our instructions. I would love to see some actual data to confirm or refute my opinion. Is there an orthodontic resident out there who needs a thesis project?...
