Dr. David J. Hauss & Sol Lacson RDA

Many of our patients remember Sol.  She assisted at our dental office for over twenty years. She just recently stopped by to celebrate my birthday with some homemade pansit, a Filipino traditional dish.  Delicious!

I would like to celebrate Sol and remember her 21 years of service.

Exciting Movements

March 8, 2011

I just returned from a two-day orthodontic update seminar.  Everytime I attend continuing education, I am so excited to get back to the office to put into  place my “new and improved” knowledge and techniques.  This seminar focused on new ways to incorporate growth estimates into our treatment plans and actually predict movements and visualize different outcomes based on what we do (i.e. extracting teeth, wearing elastics or headgear, or not extracting teeth).

It is amazing what happens if we alter forces just a little.  If we activate a nickel-titanium coil one to two millimeters more, we will effectively move the back teeth forward instead of the front teeth back.  We can also vary forces and outcomes by changing the particular bracket that is placed on a tooth.  Customized bands and brackets allow us to improve our effectiveness in moving teeth.  This can translate into better looking outcomes in shorter periods of time!  Exciting movements!!
