The Complete Esthetic Analysis: Macro-Mini-and Microesthetics

Description:
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.

David, Interesting presentation. I had a Seattle Study club for 14 years and we had Vince Kokich Sr speak to my club twice and he presented to an orthodontist only lecture in St. Louis on several occasions. Dr. Kokich was key in presenting his principles of ortho-perio-restorative relationships and the orthodontic possibilties. He focused first on the location the occlusal plane which would limit the scope of the improvements in facial height. Secondly, he would demonstrate the relationship between the incisors and the occlusal plane relative to the overbite. His third principle was to correct gingival positions determines whether intrusions is the right solution, and crown proportions governs the amount of lengthening desirable. His last principle was the need for surgery depends on facial proportions. Using these principles he taught use how he would positioned teeth orthodontically. In your program, you did not discuss the posterior occlusal plane and its role in diagnosis and treatment-could you comment on that. Secondly most of your cases had subtractive gingival recontouring with the diode laser--do you find the need for intrusions or for osseous crown lengthening to achieve better width to length ratios? Your results are extremely pleasing and your attention to detail is excellent. My last question is how do we get our orthodontic colleagues to pay attention to this level of finishing detail? Thank you for your presentations

GPs: Best Suited to Deliver Orthodontics? Premium Member Content

GPs: Best Suited to Deliver Orthodontics?
Many dentists are frustrated they were taught to refer the most profitable procedures, such as orthodontics, to specialists. GPs can deliver excellent orthodontics, delighting their patients. Research confirms that a patient’s satisfaction with orthodontic care is universally good whether treated by a specialist or GP. This course highlights advantages GP offices have for providing orthodontics in our digital era using an orthodontic specialist driven collaborative platform. The course outlines a formalized method of support, communication and on-demand education. We provide easy to understand rules for the dentist to choose patients with the most predictable problems to treat.

Merging Orthodontics & Esthetic Dentistry for the Anterior Zone. A Complete Clinical & Laboratory Perspective - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Merging Orthodontics & Esthetic Dentistry for the Anterior Zone. A Complete Clinical & Laboratory Perspective - Part 2 of 2
Anterior zone represents a clinical challenge in dentofacial esthetics. This presentation is unique since we will illustrate multidisciplinary treatment for the anterior zone from A to Z. Through the perspective of a Master Dental Ceramist & Restorative Dentist combined with the input of the Orthodontist we will illustrate with clinical cases the management of anterior esthetic challenges. Skeletal & dental problems are treated through orthodontics & orthognatic surgery prior to periodontal plastic surgery & finally high quality restorative dentistry gives the final touch to our cases. Extensive details of the ceramic laboratory work will be explained & illustrated for preserving as much as possible tooth structure. The complete management of anterior veneers & metal free crowns will be explained in detail. Color & shapes are an integral part of this webinar.

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.

Congenitally Missing Mandibular Second Premolars

Congenitally Missing Mandibular Second Premolars
<b>Introduction:</b> Congenital absence of mandibular second premolars affects many orthodontic patients. The orthodontist must make the proper decision at the appropriate time regarding management of the edentulous space. These spaces can be closed or left open. <b>Implications:</b> If the space will be left open for an eventual restoration, the keys during orthodontic treatment are to create the correct amount of space and to leave the alveolar ridge in an ideal condition for a future restoration.…

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…
