Assessment and Treatment in Dentofacial Esthetics: A Comprehensive Global Perspective Assessment and Treatment in Dentofacial Esthetics: A Comprehensive Global Perspective

Continuing Education Credits:

1 CEU (Continuing Education Unit)

Course Presenter(s):

David M Sarver, DMD, MS

Date Added:

09/20/2012

Course Description:

To optimally treat the esthetic needs and desires of our patients necessarily includes an understanding of all the elements that constitute the ideal smile. Since many deficiencies characteristic of an unpleasant smile presentation include skeletal and dentoalveolar components, a Global esthetic assessment must be systematic and thorough. 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. 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 expansion of the interdisciplinary team now may include the coordination of the dentist, orthodontist, periodontist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and facial plastic surgeon which requires a broader knowledge of how each discipline has a role in many cases. Numerous clinical case presentations are designed to illustrate this structure of diagnosis and treatment graphically and clearly.
