Everyday orthodontics and new innovations. The good, the bad and medico-legal problemsCV or Autobiography :Professor Derrick Willmot
BDS PhD LDS FDS MOrth DDO FHEA
Professor Willmot is Emeritus Professor at the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom
He qualified at University College, London in 1969 and in 1984 he was appointed Consultant Orthodontist in Sheffield. He was subsequently appointed to a personal chair in Orthodontics at the School of Clinical Dentistry of the University of Sheffield and became head of the department of Growth and Development of the University and Clinical Dean of the dental school. He was Clinical Director of the Charles Clifford Dental Hospital for 5 years from 1995 to 2000. He was president of the South Yorkshire Branch of the British Dental Association in 1992 and he was awarded the John Tomes medal of the Association in 2011. He has been Chairman of many educational committees and served on the Council of the British Orthodontic Society for many years. He was awarded the Special Service award of the British Orthodontic Society. He taught Orthodontics, Facial Growth and Development and Paediatric Dentistry and examined the whole range of Dentistry. He was Dean of the Faculty of Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons from 2008 to 2011 having served on the Faculty Board of Dental Surgery from 2002 as a Board member. He was a full member of the Council of The Royal College of Surgeons from 2007 to 2011.
He was awarded his PhD in 2000 for research work on the Image Analysis of enamel demineralisation. He has published widely. He has supervised many postgraduate Masters research projects and he has examined both undergraduate and postgraduate dentists in the UK and overseas at Degree, Masters and PhD levels. He has given presentations on orthodontic matters both in the United Kingdom and in the USA, the Middle East and Malaysia. He has advised on many orthodontic medico legal matters over 20 years. In addition to preparing many expert reports he has appeared as an expert in the Crown Court, the County Courts and at the General Dental Council having been instructed by lawyers acting both for the defendant and prosecution. He has wide medico legal experience and has been a Dental Adviser in Orthodontics to the Medical Protection Society since 1993. He has prepared reports and the associated correspondence for 350 cases relating to orthodontic matters. Fifty percent of his time is spent taking instructions by those acting for the prosecution and fifty percent for those acting for the defence.
Professor Willmot currently also works as a part time specialist orthodontist in the north of England and teaches and lectures on orthodontic matters. His current clinical caseload is mainly adult patients, many with restorative dental problems which he manages jointly with his General Practitioner and specialist colleagues.
Professor Willmot will reflect on the use of a range of conventional and contemporary orthodontic therapies and will demonstrate their use by means of case reports. He will explore some of the new innovations in orthodontics and will examine the extent of medico-legal problems that arise from these treatments, giving examples of some of the recent litigation he has experienced as an expert witness.
Orthodontic diagnosis is vitally important if the orthodontist is to achieve a good outcome and whilst basic examination techniques are still important the use of computer technologies can enable more predictable outcomes, but can lead to medicolegal issues. Plaster cast study models have served the profession for many years as a diagnostic aid but as the orthodontic community is increasingly relying on digital models, which have significant benefits, their inappropriate use has led to successful complaints.
In the UK a failure to take adequate informed consent from the patient at the treatment planning stage, results in many complaints from patients. In particular there is commonly a failure to offer patients a range of options which may include both conventional and innovative treatments. A failure to offer options at the outset can lead to later disappointment on the patient’s behalf.
Removable and functional orthodontic appliances have been used for many years and some still have a place in order to carry out simple tooth movements or manage occlusal discrepancies, often associated with fixed appliances.
Fixed orthodontic appliances are used successfully throughout the world. They achieve high quality outcomes and enable the orthodontist to manage a large range of malocclusions. These appliances can put the patient at risk of enamel demineralisation, orthodontically induced root resorption and exacerbation of periodontal disease. The promotion of cosmetic, short term fixed orthodontics, usually provided by untrained general practitioners using a laboratory made appliance and prescription, has led to increasing litigation from unhappy patients.
Aligner treatments have become a worldwide phenomenon and their use continues to expand. Various aligner techniques from a range of providers enable a wide range of malocclusion to be treated however problems do occur which lead to complaints, and there has been an increase in litigation arising from the use of these appliances in recent years.
Orthodontic relapse continues to remain a problem and long term retention is now nearly universally recommended by orthodontists. Complications do arise with contemporary retention techniques and these can lead to medicolegal problems.VIEW MORE

Several studies have reported that occlusion influences the general health. Particularly, we suggested a close relationship between occlusion and the upper gastrointestinal tract. In our past studies, we found that patients with skeletal Class III had more gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms than normal subjects, possibly due to low salivation. In addition, we reported that intra-esophageal acid stimulation, which was a model of gastroesophageal reflux (GER), caused more numbers of swallowing and bruxism episodes. Conventionally, bruxism is known to have negative influences on dental and orofacial problems, such as tooth wear and temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). However, recently, an international consensus was reached that bruxism may be a protective reaction that positively affects health. Moreover, since 2003, we demonstrated several evidences that GER-caused bruxism may be a physiological response to protect the esophagus. Here I will introduce the importance of occlusion in maintaining our general health, our clinical application of miniscrew, pathophysiology of bruxism, associated factors and causes of bruxism, a positive influence of sleep bruxism to protect esophagus.VIEW MORE
