During each visit, the orthodontist necessarily performs a series of intraoral photographs of the patient. What are these pictures for?
There are different recommendations in different orthodontic approaches - for example, in one embodiment, the difference between the width of the central and lateral incisors should be half a millimeter, and in the other - 1 millimeter. If you carry out these or other recommendations template and without photos, then not every smile and face it will be beautiful. Someone has a big difference in the width of the incisors, and the smile becomes special. Only by looking at the smile and face of the patient can we understand how to give the appearance of the patient a zest and beauty.
It is very difficult for an orthodontist to have a photographic memory for hundreds of patients in order to clearly state that it has become better since last time and to show it to the patient. The photo clearly shows if it is better or not, and it is much easier to understand whether the technique worked and whether there is progress.
