Summary:

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 to maintain during orthodontic therapy. Many adults are taking advantage of the opportunity to have their teeth aligned to improve the esthetics of their smiles. If these individuals also have underlying gingival or osseous periodontal defects, these defects often can be improved during orthodontic therapy if the orthodontist is aware of the situation and designs the appropriate tooth movement. In addition, implants have become a major part of the treatment plan for many adults with missing teeth . If adjacent teeth have drifted into edentulous spaces, orthodontics is often helpful to provide the ideal amount of space for implants and subsequent restorations. This article shows the ways in which adjunctive orthodontic therapy can enhance the periodontal health and restorability of teeth.

Orthodontic Caries Control and Bleaching
Oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment can be facilitated by applying bleaching materials to elevate the pH of the mouth during the course of treatment. Fabrication of thermoplastic bleaching trays directly in the mouth over the braces without impressions affords a reasonable technique for the multiple trays required during the orthodontic changes.

Are Contemporary Occlusion Concepts Valid In An Asymmetric World?
This study is focused on the statistical analysis of orthodontic symmetry based on pre-treatment evaluation of 121 randomly selected orthodontic patients using Anatomage 3D cephalometric Analysis of full volume (FFOV) CBCT images. Cephalometric measurements, linear and angular, were obtained from anthropologically recognized anatomical bilateral paired landmarks. Hub 3D diagnostic services performed 3D cephalometric analysis using for the study.

Congenitally Missing Mandibular Second Premolars

Congenitally Missing Mandibular Second Premolars
<b>Introduction:</b> Congenital absence of mandibular second premolars affects many orthodontic patients. The orthodontist must make the proper decision at the appropriate time regarding management of the edentulous space. These spaces can be closed or left open. <b>Implications:</b> If the space will be left open for an eventual restoration, the keys during orthodontic treatment are to create the correct amount of space and to leave the alveolar ridge in an ideal condition for a future restoration.…

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.

Interdisciplinary Team Dentistry for Total Dentofacial Esthetics - Part 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.

Anterior zone represents a clinical challenge in dentofacial esthetics. This presentation is unique since we will illustrate multidisciplinary treatment for the anterior zone from A to Z. Through the perspective of a Master Dental Ceramist & Restorative Dentist combined with the input of the Orthodontist we will illustrate with clinical cases the management of anterior esthetic challenges. Skeletal & dental problems are treated through orthodontics & orthognatic surgery prior to periodontal plastic surgery & finally high quality restorative dentistry gives the final touch to our cases. Extensive details of the ceramic laboratory work will be explained & illustrated for preserving as much as possible tooth structure. The complete management of anterior veneers & metal free crowns will be explained in detail. Color & shapes are an integral part of this webinar.
