An Orthodontist's Guide to Prescribing Conventional 2D and 3D CBCT Radiographs

Description:
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.

I would NEVER do an exposure of an impacted tooth WITHOUT a CBCT and this shows why. Great Great Presentation and not just for Orthodontists. thanks Dr. Salama

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.

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). We will cover a systematic analysis of the face, smile, and teeth and how they interact, adding a new and rewarding dimension to your approach to treatment planning and treatment outcomes.

Adjunctive Orthodontics in Preparing the Implant Patient
This presentation is a review of the orthodontically related concepts that should be routinely incorporated in examining a potential implant patient and developing a treatment plan. Specifically, an emphasis is placed on the adjunctive orthodontics that a general dentist can perform to better manage their patients. Topics to be covered will include, space closure, unraveling anterior crowded teeth, extrusion, rotation and tipping movements.

Interdisciplinary Management of Anterior Guidance

Interdisciplinary Management of Anterior Guidance
A common objective of anterior restorative dentistry is to establish incisal guidance between the maxillary and mandibular anterior teeth to disclude the posterior teeth during protrusive mandibular movement.1-4 However, this goal is difficult to achieve in a patient with significant wear or abrasion and excess anterior overjet. How does the restorative dentist provide for immediate incisal guidance when the patient has short, abraded anterior teeth and a 6-mm overjet? This is a common dilemma for…

Using Orthodontic Intrusion of Abraded Incisors to Facilitate Restoration
<p><b>Background.</b> The authors examined the effects of orthodontic intrusion of abraded incisors in adult patients to facilitate restoration, focusing specifically on changes in alveolar bone level and root length.</p> <p><b>Methods. </b>The authors analyzed records of 43 consecutive adult patients (mean age 45.9 years). They identified intrusion by means of cephalometric radiographs and bone level and root length by means of periapical radiographs. They calculated treatment differences from…

Esthetics and Anterior Tooth Position: An Orthodontic Perspective Part 1 - Crown Length

Esthetics and Anterior Tooth Position: An Orthodontic Perspective Part 1 - Crown Length
Orthodontics plays a major role in dental esthetics, other than aligning malposed anterior teeth. Factors such as anterior crown length, crown width, midline proportions, tooth angulations, and vertical tooth positions may be critical to anterior dental esthetics and treatable with orthodontic therapy. This article discusses the evaluation and treatment of discrepancies in anterior crown length.
