Summary:

Today most orthodontists own a laptop computer that is equipped with PowerPoint (Microsoft Corporation) or some other type of presentation software. In addition, most orthodontists use a digital clinical camera with high resolution to gather photographic records of their patients before, during, and after orthodontic treatment. So any orthodontist has the capability to assemble a lecture or presentation for a group of dentists. What if you were invited to give a one-hour presentation about orthodontics to a local dental society, study club, or other specialty group? Would you accept? Most private practitioners would enjoy the opportunity to appear before their referring dentists and be recognized by their peers. What would you talk about? How would you structure the presentation? Will they like what you say? Will you teach or lecture? Now, you may think that teaching and lecturing are synonymous terms. But they are not. Anyone can stand in front of an audience and lecture. But the audience may not learn anything, if the presentation is not structured and delivered properly. Since most orthodontists have little training in the fundamentals of teaching, their presentations are often ineffective and simply become a show and tell lecture. However there are specific teaching principles that can make any presentation a valuable learning experience for the audience. The following article will identify, illustrate, and discuss valuable guidelines that should help any orthodontist develop a more meaningful presentation and become a more effective teacher. The article is divided into two parts. In Part 1, we will discuss the formulation and organization of the presentation. In Part 2, we will provide information on the delivery, flow, and conclusion of the presentation.

Managing the Patient with Missing or Malformed Maxillary Central Incisors
Occasionally, orthodontists and general dentists encounter a patient who has traumatically avulsed a maxillary central incisor1 or a patient with a geminated or fused maxillary central incisor that must be removed. In either situation, a decision must be made about the eventual restoration of the anterior edentulous space. Several options exist for replacing a missing maxillary central incisor. If the tooth has been avulsed, the simplest long-term solution is to replant it. However, the success…

Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implants: Planning with the Aid of Orthodontics
Implants are commonly used to replace congenitally missing lateral incisors in adolescent orthodontic patients. However, these restorations are often challenging for the orthodontist, surgeon, and restorative dentist. In some patients, the space across the alveolar crest is too narrow to permit the surgeon to place the implant. Occasionally the root apices of the adjacent central incisor and canine are in close proximity. In other cases the ridge thickness could be inadequate and require augmentation.…

Orthodontic Management of Impacted Teeth
Over the last 25 years we have managed different clinical situations that include every tooth in the mouth that can be impacted on an orthodontic patient. We will focus the webinar both on mucogingival considerations as well as orthodontic biomechanics. Impacted teeth can be a challenge and can make a treatment last longer. We will show a logic approach to these situations. That produces good stability, periodontal health and relative short treatment time.

Integrating Orthodontics with Orthognatic Surgery; From Virtual Planning to Clinical Excellence
Dentofacial deformities in adults require the combination and skills of the orthodontist and maxillofacial surgeon. In order to achieve all the functional and esthetic goals. In digital dentistry’s days virtual planning of orthodontics and orthognatic surgical corrections has become a valuable tool. Results can be compared to planning both for reevaluation and sharing information with colleagues and our patients. Virtual planning account for more reliable and precise results in our orthognatic surgery. Orthodontic preparation is the gold standard for maximizing the surgical correction. Cases will illustrate our treatment protocol from A to Z for these complex and challenging situations.
