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

Description:
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.

I would NEVER do an exposure of an impacted tooth WITHOUT a CBCT and this shows why. Great Great Presentation and not just for Orthodontists. thanks Dr. Salama

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.

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 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.

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…

Orthodontic Treatment as a Prelude to Dental Implant-Supported Restorations
Adjunctive orthodontic therapy is tooth movement that either facilitates other dental procedures necessary to control periodontal disease, or changes tooth positions that are not conducive to long-term oral health. Such therapy restores proper occlusal function and provides a healthy foundation for an aesthetic smile. When adjunctive orthodontic therapy is utilized. as part of a multidisciplinary dental team treating complex restorative cases, such as those involving the use of prosthetically guided…
