Consent in orthodontics is a complex and ever-changing topic, and the importance of achieving informed consent before any examination or procedure is carried out is paramount. This article will discuss some key points when considering the correct way of achieving informed consent, highlight some areas of difficulty when managing the consent process with younger children and also aim to clarify the differences between the level of consent necessary in orthodontics compared to dentistry as a whole.

Provision of orthodontic care is increasingly the remit of a highly skilled and qualified team, led by a specialist orthodontist. Often separate patient clinics are held in specialist practice for oral hygiene instruction and for impression taking. These tasks are increasingly delivered, under prescription from the specialist orthodontist, by orthodontic nurses (ON) with appropriate post-registration training and/or orthodontic therapists (OT). Nurse or therapist-led clinics can be beneficial in stimulating patient co-operation, enhance both practice efficiency and staff involvement and maximise the patient experience...

Interprofessional education (IPE) describes those occasions when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. In the UK, orthodontic treatment is now delivered by a highly skilled team. Historically, education and training for orthodontic team members has been delivered 'uniprofessionally' in secondary care hospital settings, despite 96% of dental care, including orthodontics, being delivered in primary care. This paper describes an evaluation of IPE in Leamington Spa Orthodontics (LSO), a University-approved, primary care outreach training centre, where all members of the orthodontic team deliver patient care and are educated together in an IPE environment...

Digit sucking is a common habit in young children, which if allowed to continue for a prolonged period, can adversely affect the development of the face and dental occlusion. Patients with digit sucking habits often present with an increased overjet, reduced overbite, anterior open bite, posterior crossbite and possible skeletal changes which can be challenging and costly to correct if the habit is not ceased in a timely manner. This article aims to provide guidance for general dental practitioners to recognise and appropriately manage patients with a digit sucking habit...

Robert S Ireland, Elizabeth M Hopkins
The introduction of orthodontic therapists as a new group of dental care professionals (DCPs) requires that their training in specialist orthodontic practices has provision for monitoring the level of supervision and clinical care provided by the students. The University of Warwick Diploma in Orthodontic Therapy programme has developed a patient questionnaire with the aim of assessing the patient's perception of the student. The observational questionnaire was designed to cover the four General Dental Council (GDC) domains and learning outcomes for orthodontic therapists, such that patient response could potentially provide valuable feedback to support the training programme...

As with many aspects of clinical photography, the main purpose of dental photography is to help the dentist or clinician to monitor and document the patient's treatment. Standardisation is key in maintaining high quality clinical photography, and this article aims to help the photographer to produce the level of consistency and reproducibility needed in order to keep accurate clinical records, create treatment plans and prepare portfolios for orthodontic qualifications, such as a Master of Science (MSc) in orthodontics, or diplomas and awards in orthodontics for dental nurses and therapists...

James Ij Green
The Peer Assessment Rating (PAR) index is a valid and reliable measure of orthodontic treatment outcome and is the most widely accepted such index. Assessing outcomes with the PAR index requires the examination of pre-treatment and post-treatment orthodontic study models. Beginning with the pre-treatment models, a score is given to each feature that deviates from an ideal occlusion (all anatomical contact points adjacent, good interdigitation between posterior teeth and non-excessive overjet/overbite), the scores are then added together to give a total that represents the severity of the malocclusion...

Eliakim Mizrahi
This paper provides a brief review of the history and development of mini screws and presents its structural features, with particular reference to the screw sizes relevant to clinical orthodontics, site selection and the different placement techniques. It covers the clinical applications of miniscrews, incorporating the principle of direct and indirect anchorage as well as the use of intraoral auxiliaries for distal movement of molars. The role of palatal miniscrews for retraction of anterior teeth, and when used in combination with buccal miniscrews for intrusion of buccal teeth is also covered along with the possible causes of miniscrew failure...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

The management of carious primary teeth is a challenge for patients, parents and clinicians. Most evidence supporting different management strategies originates from a specialist setting and therefore its relevance to the primary care setting is questionable. The UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Technology Assessment (HTA) has commissioned the FiCTION (Filling Children's Teeth: Indicated Or Not?) trial; a multi-centre primary dental care randomised controlled trial (RCT) to determine the most clinically and cost- effective approach to managing caries in the primary dentition in the UK...
