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.

Orthodontics Has Changed…What Does That Really Mean to the Dental Team? Premium Member Content

Orthodontics Has Changed…What Does That Really Mean to the Dental Team?
Our orthodontic experiences in dental school were most often characterized by mystery and “No Admittance”. Wrapped in the inscrutability of cephalometric analyses and its complexities, orthodontics was intimidating and forbidding. But times have changed! What is different? Orthodontic diagnosis has evolved to look at the patient for the same characteristics that you do, only more! 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.

An Orthodontist's Guide to Prescribing Conventional 2D and 3D CBCT Radiographs
Radiographic diagnosis is an important part of orthodontic treatment planning. 3D conebeam CT (CBCT) has advanced orthodontic care for many patients; however, it has not supplanted conventional two-dimensional radiographs which, when comparing equal levels of radiation, offer superior image quality. This Webinar explains when CBCT is indicated with/in place of 2D radiography and how to prescribe 2D and/or 3D x-ray on a patient-specific basis, thereby conforming to Federal guidelines mandating radiation levels 'as low as reasonably achievable' -- especially with regard to younger patients.

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 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.

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…

Managing the Patient with Missing or Malformed Maxillary Central Incisors

Managing the Patient with Missing or Malformed Maxillary Central Incisors
Occasionally, orthodontists and general dentists encounter a patient who has traumatically avulsed a maxillary central incisor1 or a patient with a geminated or fused maxillary central incisor that must be removed. In either situation, a decision must be made about the eventual restoration of the anterior edentulous space. Several options exist for replacing a missing maxillary central incisor. If the tooth has been avulsed, the simplest long-term solution is to replant it. However, the success…
