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.…
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…
Adjunctive Orchestrated Orthodontic Therapy
The altruistic goal of any cosmetic dental rehabilitation is the re-establishment of a healthy maintainable aesthetic functional interface from an otherwise damaged dentition. To this end, a multi-disciplinary treatment plan is necessary to fulfill the periodontal, orthodontic, maxillofacial and cosmetic requirements for a healthy, stable dentition that has a favorable long-term prognosis. This comprehensive treatment approach strives for the constituent components of the dentition to have a proper…

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). We will cover a systematic analysis of the face, smile, and teeth and how they interact, adding a new and rewarding dimension to your approach to treatment planning and treatment outcomes.

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.
