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

Description:
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. 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.

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 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.

Interdisciplinary Team Dentistry for Total Dentofacial Esthetics - 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.

Esthetics: The Orthodontic-Periodontic Restorative Connection
As we complete the 20th and progress into the 21st century, orthodontists worldwide are experiencing a gradual but significant change in their practices. The number of adult patients has increased substantially. Although adults cooperate better than adolescents, they present a different set of challenges for the orthodontist. Adults may have worn or abraded teeth, uneven gingival margins, missing papillae, and periodontal bone loss, all of which can jeopardize the esthetic appearance of the teeth…
