The Cad/Cam Technique: Does it Really Make a Difference in Adult Esthetic Orthodontics?

Description:
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.

Nice job. What is the cost of this technology and how best to implement it into clinical practice? thanks Band

Beautifully simplified...the technology and future is here. Well described my friend. What is the cost of the technology and per case cost for the wires? How much time does it save you on a typical 2 year case? regards Maurice

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.

Adjunctive Orthodontics in Preparing the Implant Patient Premium Member Content

Adjunctive Orthodontics in Preparing the Implant Patient
This presentation is a review of the orthodontically related concepts that should be routinely incorporated in examining a potential implant patient and developing a treatment plan. Specifically, an emphasis is placed on the adjunctive orthodontics that a general dentist can perform to better manage their patients. Topics to be covered will include, space closure, unraveling anterior crowded teeth, extrusion, rotation and tipping movements.

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.

Management of Complex Orthodontic Problems

Management of Complex Orthodontic Problems
Today implants are commonly used to replace missing teeth in partially edentulous adult orthodontic patients. Because these patients are missing teeth, orthodontic mechanics may be complicated or often impossible because of insufficient anchorage. In these situations, it may be feasible to use the implant initially as an orthodontic anchor to facilitate complex tooth movement and secondarily as an abutment for a crown or fixed prosthesis. This article will discuss the ramifications and requirements…

Are Contemporary Occlusion Concepts Valid In An Asymmetric World?
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.

Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implants: Planning with the Aid of Orthodontics

Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implants: Planning with the Aid of Orthodontics
Implants are commonly used to replace congenitally missing lateral incisors in adolescent orthodontic patients. However, these restorations are often challenging for the orthodontist, surgeon, and restorative dentist. In some patients, the space across the alveolar crest is too narrow to permit the surgeon to place the implant. Occasionally the root apices of the adjacent central incisor and canine are in close proximity. In other cases the ridge thickness could be inadequate and require augmentation.…
