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.

Orthodontic Management of Spaces in Adult Patients Missing a Maxillary Tooth Premium Member Content

Orthodontic Management of Spaces in Adult Patients Missing a Maxillary Tooth
Treating an adult patient is quite common nowadays. Planning orthodontic treatment for these patients goes beyond esthetics and achieving a Class I occlusion. An adult malocclusion, in contrast to an adolescent one, may have suffered abrasion, periodontal deterioration, loss of teeth, etc. All these events may impede an excellent orthodontic result. The ideal dimensions of anterior teeth might not apply in all adult cases due to the above-mentioned factors. The presentation reviews the actual space requirements and how these are managed in adult malocclusions and restored to make them ideal for each individual case where an anterior tooth is absent.

Interdisciplinary Team Dentistry for Total Dentofacial Esthetics - Part 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.

The Cad/Cam Technique: Does it Really Make a Difference in Adult Esthetic Orthodontics? Premium Member Content

The Cad/Cam Technique: Does it Really Make a Difference in Adult Esthetic Orthodontics?
Over the last couple of decades, Lingual Orthodontic treatments have dramatically risen in popularity due to the abundance of worldwide courses and conferences, the large variety of lingual brackets, the improvement in laboratory procedures, updated CAD-CAM technologies and the implementation of 30 years of experience. Yet, most clinicians still assert that the results are not predictable and not as good as seen with the buccal appliance. The reasons are multifactorial, but are mainly attributed to ignorance and the lack of knowledge of the biomechanics limitations of the orthodontic appliances and the importance of treatment planning. Various CAD-CAM techniques will be surveyed with numerous clinical cases.

Maximizing Anterior Esthetics
As the new millennium gradua lly unfolds. the impact on dentistry will be substantial. In the past, the paradigm that controlled dental education and clinical dentistry was devoted to repairing the aftermath of the two major dental diseases (dental caries and periodontitis). However, in most regions of the United States, dental caries in younger individuals has decreased substantially for the past 25 years, due to fluoridation and the use of occlusal sealants. Furthermore, the number of patients with…

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. This case presentation describes how to determine the presence of passive eruption, treatment plan its correction, and surgically alter the gingiva to provide a more aesthetic smile. Upon…
