For most Dentists, during their academic progress through four years of studies culminating into Graduation, Orthodontics as a subject rarely fires up the imagination for the right reasons. It remains a much neglected, if not hated subject. This continues for the most part into private practice so as to treat this specialty as merely a good pasture to graze for the returns out of professional practice by enlisting the help of a consulting professional or through referrals. Orthodontics CDE Programs too rarely have meaningfulness for a general dental practitioner (GPs). Thus, a shift in orthodontic paradigms that occurs periodically and its relevance are also lost on a vast majority of GPs.

Through this clinical presentation, the author who yearns to make learning interesting, strives to offer to GPs and other specialists within dentistry a window into the exciting world of Orthodontics. Procedures that can be embraced and performed with aplomb by non-orthodontists are discussed and detailed.
