Furthermore, the second speaker was Assistant Prof. Dr. Mohammed Rafid Alkhanaq from the college of Dentistry / Mustansiriya University/ Baghdad. He presented 2 lectures. The first was titled Dental Asymmetry or the non-extraction treatment of unilateral crowding.
After a short coffee break, the session was presented by Assistant Prof. Dr. Mohammed Rafid Alkhanaq under the title of Non-surgical treatment of severe cases of Class II malocclusion.
By the end of the symposium, the presenters answered some questions from the audience. These topics were chosen because the more conservative approaches of non-extraction and non-surgical methods have become more popular lately in the correction and management of space discrepancies and malocclusion.
