The Merger of Orthodontics with Cosmetic Dentistry

Description:
As orthodontists, we don’t do laminates. But when we are finishing a case, sometimes the smile just doesn't “look right”. But not all our patients either want or can afford laminates. Not all even need them to get a great smile. So, what principles can we learn from the cosmetic dentists and use in our orthodontic cases? Apparently quite a lot! In this presentation, Dr. Sarver will illustrate finishing procedures such as reshaping contacts, connectors, embrasures, and even soft tissue contouring with lasers to achieve that next level of smile presentation in your orthodontic cases.

The Role of Orthodontics in the Multidisciplinary Treatment of Complex Cases - Part 1 of 2
Orthodontics sets up the foundation for future prosthetics in cases with periodontal, surgical and restorative dentistry requirements. Adult orthodontics simplifies complex clinical situations. Making it easier for restorative dentist to achieve better esthetic & functional results. Orthognatic surgery combined with orthodontics corrects skeletal discrepancies in order to have the patient ready for prosthodontic replacement of multiple missing teeth. Cases combined with implants to restore form & function will further illustrate the importance of multidisciplinary dentistry. 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.

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.

Diagnosis and Treatment Planning for Predictable Gingival Correction of Passive Eruption

Diagnosis and Treatment Planning for Predictable Gingival Correction of Passive Eruption
While the need to maintain a dry operative field has traditionally caused complications during various soft tissue surgical procedures, the use of bipolar electrosurgical techniques can eliminate the need to maintain a dry field, thus increasing the clinician's ability to deliver predictable, long-term results.

Evaluation of Enamel Micro-Cracks Characteristics After Removal of Metal Brackets in Adult Patients

Evaluation of Enamel Micro-Cracks Characteristics After Removal of Metal Brackets in Adult Patients
The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare enamel micro-crack characteristics of adult patients before and after removal of metal brackets. After the examination with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), 45 extracted human teeth were divided into three groups of equal size. The length and width of the longest enamel micro-crack were measured for all the teeth before and after removal of metal brackets. The changes in the location of the micro-cracks were also evaluated. New enamel micro-cracks were found in 6 of 15 (40 per cent) examined teeth. Greatest changes in the width of enamel micro-cracks after debonding procedure appear in the cervical third of the tooth. On the basis of this result, the dentist must pay extra care and attention to this specific area of enamel during removal of metal brackets in adult patients.
