special thx dr thomas

Where is the discussion of TMD and airway problems? These kids developed these malocclusion problems/problems associated with growth and development due to improperly formed palate. Palatal growth is driven by the airway problems associated with adenoids and tonsils. If ortho treatments are done with these old fashioned Stein analysis alone, Dr. Sperling's patients will definitely develop serious TMD problems.

I agree with dr durrani, I would love to see some presentations on the main different types of malocclusion to provide an overview for further learning. Thanks.

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.

Orthodontics Has Changed…What Does That Really Mean to the Dental Team?
The objective of this presentation is to demonstrate the similarities and such things as smile design, but to take you to another level of facial, smile, and dental esthetic planning that elevates what you are able to offer your patients to a most rewarding plateau. Dr. Sarver will demonstrate the coordination of Macroesthetics (the face), Miniesthetics (the smile) and Microesthetics (the dental esthetic component) for a complete approach to esthetic planning. In addition, understanding how the skeletal, dentoalveolar and soft tissue changes over time gives you a great advantage in the attainment of the type of outcomes that you cannot realize without this style of interdisciplinary approach and achieve Esthetics for a Lifetime.

The Role of Orthodontics in the Multidisciplinary Treatment of Complex Cases - Part 1 of 2
Today´s practice requires a team approach that will be presented. In order to meet the patient´s demands for better esthetics and to obtain long term occlusal stability of our results. Cases will illustrate how orthodontics combines with distraction osteogenesis & conventional orthognatic surgery in severe dentofacial deformities cases. Orthodontics combined with other dental specialties. Produce an end result that guarantees long term periodontal health and produces patient´s satisfaction with his or her dentofacial esthetics.

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.

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…

Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implants: The Orthodontic Perspective
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.…
