How to use innovation in reasonable and efficient way.

Orthodontics had improved during two main periods. The first evolution is the evolution of treatment concepts and diagnostic tools and the second one is the evolution of treatment tools.
All the innovations try to answer doctor and patient’s demands. However, the majority of data about innovations received by orthodontists is mainly marketing information communicated by companies. Through different clinical cases, we will try to do a critical analysis about the main evolution of orthodontic tools.
