Summary:

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 intact dentitions with few restorations and a healthy periodontium, adults may have old failing restorations, edentu lous spaces. abraded teeth. pcriodontnl bone defects, gingival level discrepancies, hopeless teeth, and a variety of other restorative and periodontal problems that could compromise the orthodontic result. In the past, orthodonlists made all the decisions about the treatment plan for a child or adolescent. However, in the compromised adult malocclusion, a team of orthodontist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon, periodontist, endodontist, and restorative dentist must interact to make prudent treatment decisions for the patient. This article will elucidate the dilemmas encountered in the orthodontic patient with multidisciplinary problems, and describe a series of 10 guidelines to help manage the interrelalionship of orthodontics with periodontics and restorative dentistry.

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.

This Webinar explains when CBCT is indicated with/in place of 2D radiography and how to prescribe 2D and/or 3D x-ray on a patient-specific basis, thereby conforming to Federal guidelines mandating radiation levels 'as low as reasonably achievable' -- especially with regard to younger patients.
