Nowadays there are a lot of different approaches in orthodontics. We have a variety of different appliances �?? fixed (both labial and lingual), functional, growth guidance. We have hundreds types of appliances in use, but we still have important questions unanswered like: There are side-effects; there is controversy about when to start orthodontic treatment; there is still no consensus about the causes of malocclusion; there is a marked lack of information about long-term stability; finally there are TMD and sleep apnea �?? the etiology of these conditions I believe should be better understood in order to prevent them in early stages. The United States of America are known as the motherland of contemporary orthodontics. So I decided to shoot a documentary about the orthodontics in order to collect different opinions and create a wider vision on the problems we currently have in the specialty. I�??ve crossed the continent two times and filmed 9 interviews with American orthodontists. From that material I�??ve edited my film. In my lecture I�??m going to talk about the experience I�??ve gained during the creation of this project and also about the conclusions I can make now regarding the controversy in orthodontics.
