Summary:

The altruistic goal of any cosmetic dental rehabilitation is the re-establishment of a healthy maintainable aesthetic functional interface from an otherwise damaged dentition. To this end, a multi-disciplinary treatment plan is necessary to fulfill the periodontal, orthodontic, maxillofacial and cosmetic requirements for a healthy, stable dentition that has a favorable long-term prognosis. This comprehensive treatment approach strives for the constituent components of the dentition to have a proper occlusal scheme with properly aligned and positioned teeth prior to prosthetic therapy. This can easily be achieved by the cosmetic dentist in office through the process of adjunctive orchestrated orthodontic therapy, using socially acceptable aesthetic appliances.

Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implants: The Orthodontic Perspective
Implants are commonly used to replace congenitally missing lateral incisors in adolescent orthodontic patients. However, these restorations are often challenging for the orthodontist, surgeon, and restorative dentist. In some patients, the space across the alveolar crest is too narrow to permit the surgeon to place the implant. Occasionally the root apices of the adjacent central incisor and canine are in close proximity. In other cases the ridge thickness could be inadequate and require augmentation.…

Interrelationship of Othodontics and Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry

Interrelationship of Othodontics and Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry
Today, orthodontics is not just for children and adolescents. For the past two decades, increasing numbers of adults have been referred to orthodontists to correct their malocclusions. Adults are usually wonderful patients, because they are cooperative, clean their teeth, show up for appointments, and are appreciative of the clinician's efforts. However, adults may have problems other than malposed teeth and jaws that make their onhodontic treatment more challenging. Whereas children and adolescents have…

The Role of Orthodontics as an Adjunct to Periodontal Therapy

The Role of Orthodontics as an Adjunct to Periodontal Therapy
Orthodontic tooth movement may be a substantial benefit to the adult periorestorative patient. Many adults who seek rout ine resto rative dentistry have problems with tooth malposition that compromise their ability to adequately clean and maintain their dentitions. If these individuals also are susceptible to periodontal disease, tooth malposition could be an exacerbating factor that could cause premature loss of spedfic teeth. Orthodontic appliances have become smaller, less noticeable, and easier…

Interdisciplinary Team Dentistry for Total Dentofacial Esthetics - Part 1 of 2
Orthodontics sets up the foundation for future prosthetics in cases with periodontal, surgical and restorative dentistry requirements. Adult orthodontics simplifies complex clinical situations. Making it easier for restorative dentist to achieve better esthetic & functional results. Orthognatic surgery combined with orthodontics corrects skeletal discrepancies in order to have the patient ready for prosthodontic replacement of multiple missing teeth. Cases combined with implants to restore form & function will further illustrate the importance of multidisciplinary dentistry. Today´s practice requires a team approach that will be presented. In order to meet the patient´s demands for better esthetics and to obtain long term occlusal stability of our results.

Working With Spaces and Decisions on the Congenitally Missing Lateral Incisor - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Working With Spaces and Decisions on the Congenitally Missing Lateral Incisor - Part 1 of 2
A congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisor is quite common today on a Orthodontic practice. Through the years, the alternatives of restoring the missing lateral incisor have increased in such a level that today we can offer a patient the option of opening the space for a tooth supported restoration, or for an implant supported restoration. We could also offer closing the space and have a tooth substitution type of solution to this problem. The lecture will go in detail on the aspects we should consider while making the decision on what treatment option to follow.

The Complete Esthetic Analysis: Macro-Mini-and Microesthetics Premium Member Content

The Complete Esthetic Analysis: Macro-Mini-and Microesthetics
In restorative dentistry, esthetics is evaluated in terms of anterior tooth display and smile design. For orthodontists and oral surgeons, the focus is on the facial profile. Interdisciplinary treatment in dentistry has progressed enormously in the past two decades, with collaboration among dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, and oral surgeons resulting in vastly superior results compared to those achieved working without collaboration. But our vision can, and should, still expand to broader appearance issues. With the assessment and treatment of other dimensions of the smile and facial esthetics, the target is the ultimate dentofacial esthetic outcome. This lecture will demonstrate the coordination of care between the disciplines of dentistry and facial plastic surgery, resulting in gratifying enhancement of our esthetic and functional results.

The Cad/Cam Technique: Does it Really Make a Difference in Adult Esthetic Orthodontics? Premium Member Content

The Cad/Cam Technique: Does it Really Make a Difference in Adult Esthetic Orthodontics?
Over the last couple of decades, Lingual Orthodontic treatments have dramatically risen in popularity due to the abundance of worldwide courses and conferences, the large variety of lingual brackets, the improvement in laboratory procedures, updated CAD-CAM technologies and the implementation of 30 years of experience. Yet, most clinicians still assert that the results are not predictable and not as good as seen with the buccal appliance. The reasons are multifactorial, but are mainly attributed to ignorance and the lack of knowledge of the biomechanics limitations of the orthodontic appliances and the importance of treatment planning. Various CAD-CAM techniques will be surveyed with numerous clinical cases.
