Non-surgical Orthodontic Treatment of Anterior Open Bite in an Adult Patient

Interdisciplinary Management of Single-Tooth Implants
Orthodontists treat many patients who are missing maxillary lateral incisors and/or mandibular second premolars. In the past, if the canines could not be substituted for lateral incisors, conventional full-coverage bridges were the common restoration. Recently, resin-bonded Maryland bridges became a popular substitute for conventional bridges to avoid crowns on the nonrestored abutments. However, resin-bonded bridges have a poor long-term prognosis for retention, lasting on average about 10 years.…
Open Gingival Embrasures After Orthodontic Treatment in Adults
The purposes of this study were to determine the prevalence of posttreatment open gingival embrasures in adult orthodontic patients and to examine the association of pretreatment maxillary incisor malalignment, posttreatment alveolar bone height, interproximal contact position, root angulation, crown shape, and embrasure area with open gingival embrasures. Posttreatment intraoral photographs of 337 adult orthodontic patients were evaluated to determine the prevalence of open gingival embrasures.…

The Merger of Orthodontics with Cosmetic Dentistry
As orthodontists, we don’t do laminates. But when we are finishing a case, sometimes the smile just doesn't “look right”. But not all our patients either want or can afford laminates. Not all even need them to get a great smile. So, what principles can we learn from the cosmetic dentists and use in our orthodontic cases? Apparently quite a lot! In this presentation, Dr. Sarver will illustrate finishing procedures such as reshaping contacts, connectors, embrasures, and even soft tissue contouring with lasers to achieve that next level of smile presentation in your orthodontic cases.
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.
