Ottawa Cosmetic Dentist Extends Her Orthodontics Expertise with Seminar Training

By pamelali, in News, on February 8, 2010 | Comments (0)

OTTAWA, ON — Ottawa cosmetic dentistry practitioner Dr. Pamela Li is taking a series of orthodontic courses for general dental practitioners. These courses enhance dentists’ knowledge of orthodontic treatment and further enable practitioners to diagnose and treat patients more effectively. Dr. Li is completing her training with Rondeau Seminars and at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI).

Dr. Li is one of several Ottawa dentists that seek additional training from Rondeau Seminars. She will complete her training in functional orthodontics at Rondeau Seminars in March 2010. This program prepares a dentist to provide early interceptive orthodontic treatment. It also provides intimate knowledge of removable and fixed functional appliances. This decreases the need for tooth extractions and surgery. The training also includes orthodontic treatment for TMJ disorders and facial pain.

“Functional orthodontics is practiced more commonly in Europe and is gaining popularity here in North America,” says Dr. Li. “Since 90% of the face is developed by age 12, it is important to start treatment early. If you wait until all the adult teeth erupt, it may be too late to correct some skeletal problems.”

At LVI, Dr. Li’s training focused on proper etiology, diagnosis and treatment. By determining the cause of the malocclusion first, the treatment will be much more successful. By eliminating the cause, such as poor airways, mouth breathing, or bad habits, there will be less chance of relapse.

“Functional orthodontics enhance my training in Invisalign,” says Dr. Li. “It also complements my work in sleep apnea and TMJ treatments. Jaw development and position is so important for healthy and balanced muscles, bones and joints. I also enjoy providing another cosmetic option for my patients.”

From her Ottawa dentistry practice, Dr. Li provides general, restorative, and cosmetic treatments in addition to orthodontics. She treats patients in need of crowns, bridges, cleanings, sealants, whitening, Invisalign orthodontics, dental implants, and other special services such as TMJ treatment and sports mouthguards. Dr. Li is also an Ottawa veneers provider.
