Diagnosis and treatment planning in orthodontics.Curr Opin Dent. 1992 Dec; 2:9-13.CO
Orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning topics either reflect the new technology available in the health fields or reiterate the older material that reemerges from generation to generation. Issues that are presented still display the dissatisfaction of their examiners in terms of frustration and equivocal results. Well-controlled prospective and retrospective studies require documented long-term evaluations to be clinically useful as an aid in diagnosis or formulation of treatment planning principles.
