“Holistic” Orthodontics

An attempt of applying alternative medical concepts to orthodontics. Since alternative medicine predominantly relies on placebo effects, which can have no effect in orthodontics, holistic orthodontics is a misconceived concept that patients have to pay for with excessive treatment duration, high social and financial burden and poor quality of results.
