Summary:

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.

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…

The Role of Orthodontics as an Adjunct to Periodontal Therapy

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…

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…

Integrating Orthodontics with Orthognatic Surgery; From Virtual Planning to Clinical Excellence
Dentofacial deformities in adults require the combination and skills of the orthodontist and maxillofacial surgeon. In order to achieve all the functional and esthetic goals. In digital dentistry’s days virtual planning of orthodontics and orthognatic surgical corrections has become a valuable tool. Results can be compared to planning both for reevaluation and sharing information with colleagues and our patients. Virtual planning account for more reliable and precise results in our orthognatic surgery. Orthodontic preparation is the gold standard for maximizing the surgical correction. Cases will illustrate our treatment protocol from A to Z for these complex and challenging situations.

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.

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.

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.
