Orthodontics: Aggressive Marketing and Inefficient Treatment

Summary of my presentation at the Congress of the Public Health Service in Reutlingen on 29 April 2016, published in the journal Zahnärztlicher Gesundheitsdienst. In Germany, almost 70% of all adolescents are treated orthodontically, which is an extreme international peak. It is discussed how the German orthodontists contribute. Also internationally striking are the excessive treatment durations that are customary in Germany, which is also discussed on the basis of studies. It proves to be a massive over- and misuse in German orthodontics.
