Restorative Materials in Orthodontics

...All too often, I have a tendency to forget that I, too, am essentially a dentist. I tend to get lost in the realms of facial growth and development, orthodontic biomechanics, force systems, and retention, overlooking the wide world of restorative techniques and materials at my disposal. Gestalt psychologists refer to this “getting lost” as functional fixedness: the inability to conceptualize or utilize an object in a way other than the way it is commonly used. As orthodontists, we sometimes fail to see the potential of restorative materials to solve a number of clinical problems. For example, direct bonding to enamel with composite resins—now the standard method for attaching brackets—has eliminated the need to band every tooth in the mouth...

On the cover: This month’s cover illustrates the use of composite enamel shells to achieve a temporary cosmetic makeover, as described in the article by Dr. Hourfar and colleagues.
