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

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.

Assessment and Treatment in Dentofacial Esthetics: A Comprehensive Global Perspective Premium Member Content

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). 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. Numerous clinical case presentations are designed to illustrate this structure of diagnosis and treatment graphically and clearly.

The Role of CBCT in the Evaluation of Alveolar Bone Premium Member Content

The Role of CBCT in the Evaluation of Alveolar Bone
While traditional 2D radiography has been said to show less than 50% of the anatomy of alveolar bone, the arrival of CBCT technology for practicing orthodontists has given practitioners the ability to completely view and study this area with respect to tooth movement. An update on the related research will introduce this topic with a specific emphasis on the accuracy, application and importance of this radiological advancement followed by the presenter's own protocols for patient diagnosis and treatment methods. Case presentations will be used throughout the lecture to highlight the clinical significance of using CBCT in Orthodontics to anticipate and assess the periodontal consequences of tooth movement.

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.

Interrelationship of Othodontics and Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry
Today, orthodontics is not just for children and adolescents. For the past two decades, increasing numbers of adults have been referred to orthodontists to correct their malocclusions. Adults are usually wonderful patients, because they are cooperative, clean their teeth, show up for appointments, and are appreciative of the clinician's efforts. However, adults may have problems other than malposed teeth and jaws that make their onhodontic treatment more challenging. Whereas children and adolescents have…
