Dr. Adriano Montorsi and The ACOM® Method
The traditional Soulet Besombes method, now counts more than 60 years of experience and recognized results, is part of the gentle and biological therapies, but is only used by few professionals as it is unknown and not disclosed by the media which is likely to ignore it.
In the 1950s there was a particularly strong following in France which was unfortunately supplanted in the ‘60s by the multiband therapy introduced from America – much more commercial and advocated by multinational manufacturers and has, over time, become almost a “must” and a “status symbol”.
Only recently, thanks to the popularization by Dr. Adriano Montorsi – and given the “relapse frequency” of orthodontics (approximately 85%) and its many side effects, immediate or in years to follow (scoliosis, cervical headaches injury prone athletes, etc.) – patients have discovered the validity of biological therapies and are looking for treatments that can, in addition to aesthetics, lead to an overall improvement in the quality of life.
