To achieve excellent orthodontic results is a must and involves a series of procedures from the treatment beginning as well as during treatment. But the most critical phase corresponds to finish properly or closely to the appliance removal. For this phase it is important to have clear goals, a checklist and perform the items considered inadequate such as brackets reposition and adjustments in the archwires. We intend with this lecture to reveal, discuss and propose procedures considered essential for the excellence of the orthodontic finish procedure and to achieve results with excellent oral health, facial, dental and smile harmony, functional occlusion and especially long-term stability.
