Adjunctive Orthodontics in Preparing the Implant Patient
This presentation is a review of the orthodontically related concepts that should be routinely incorporated in examining a potential implant patient and developing a treatment plan. Specifically, an emphasis is placed on the adjunctive orthodontics that a general dentist can perform to better manage their patients. Topics to be covered will include, space closure, unraveling anterior crowded teeth, extrusion, rotation and tipping movements.

An Orthodontist's Guide to Prescribing Conventional 2D and 3D CBCT Radiographs Premium Member Content

An Orthodontist's Guide to Prescribing Conventional 2D and 3D CBCT Radiographs
Radiographic diagnosis is an important part of orthodontic treatment planning. 3D conebeam CT (CBCT) has advanced orthodontic care for many patients; however, it has not supplanted conventional two-dimensional radiographs which, when comparing equal levels of radiation, offer superior image quality. 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.

Assessment and Treatment in Dentofacial Esthetics: A Comprehensive Global Perspective Premium Member Content

Assessment and Treatment in Dentofacial Esthetics: A Comprehensive Global Perspective
Dr. Sarver will present a different system of esthetic classification which is made up of three major components: Macroesthetics (the facial appearance), Miniesthetics (the smile) and Miniesthetics (the teeth and gingival scaffold). These three features are all interactive-an adjustment of one has a cascade effect on the other two, and it is important to recognize all three to raise your level of care. Numerous clinical case presentations are designed to illustrate this structure of diagnosis and treatment graphically and clearly.

The Role of CBCT in the Evaluation of Alveolar Bone Premium Member Content

The Role of CBCT in the Evaluation of Alveolar Bone
While traditional 2D radiography has been said to show less than 50% of the anatomy of alveolar bone, the arrival of CBCT technology for practicing orthodontists has given practitioners the ability to completely view and study this area with respect to tooth movement. An update on the related research will introduce this topic with a specific emphasis on the accuracy, application and importance of this radiological advancement followed by the presenter's own protocols for patient diagnosis and treatment methods. Case presentations will be used throughout the lecture to highlight the clinical significance of using CBCT in Orthodontics to anticipate and assess the periodontal consequences of tooth movement.

Orthodontic Management of Impacted Teeth Premium Member Content

Orthodontic Management of Impacted Teeth
Over the last 25 years we have managed different clinical situations that include every tooth in the mouth that can be impacted on an orthodontic patient. We will focus the webinar both on mucogingival considerations as well as orthodontic biomechanics. Impacted teeth can be a challenge and can make a treatment last longer. We will show a logic approach to these situations. That produces good stability, periodontal health and relative short treatment time.

Orthodontics Has Changed…What Does That Really Mean to the Dental Team? Premium Member Content

Orthodontics Has Changed…What Does That Really Mean to the Dental Team?
The objective of this presentation is to demonstrate the similarities and such things as smile design, but to take you to another level of facial, smile, and dental esthetic planning that elevates what you are able to offer your patients to a most rewarding plateau. Dr. Sarver will demonstrate the coordination of Macroesthetics (the face), Miniesthetics (the smile) and Microesthetics (the dental esthetic component) for a complete approach to esthetic planning. In addition, understanding how the skeletal, dentoalveolar and soft tissue changes over time gives you a great advantage in the attainment of the type of outcomes that you cannot realize without this style of interdisciplinary approach and achieve Esthetics for a Lifetime.

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…

Orthodontics vs Restorative Materials

Orthodontics vs Restorative Materials
Today's "cosmetically aware" adult patients are seeking out advice and opinions about oral/facial esthetics from dental professionals. Recently, many articles have been published about the "quick fixes" available in esthetic therapy. With the advent of next-generation restorative materials and the ability to predictably bond to remaining tooth structures, some authors advocate composite bonding or veneering of misaligned teeth, rather than orthodontic therapy. Composite bonding or veneering are…

Interdisciplinary Management of a Patient with a Skeletal Deformity
Patients with a skeletal aberration that results in a malocclusion are not uncommon in our patient population. Several treatment options exist for these patients, from undertaking no treatment at all to performing complex orthodontics, orthognathic surgery, and restorative therapies. A practitioner cannot simply use Angles' classification of occlusal relationships (i.e., Class I, normal molar and cuspid relationship; Class II, retrognathic molar and cuspid relationship; and Class III, prognathic…
