Summary:

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.

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…

Effective Teaching Part 2
This article is the second of a two-part series on creating an effective teaching presentation. Today, any orthodontist has the capability to assemble a lecture or presentation for a group of dentists. What if you were invited to give a 1 hour presentation about orthodontics to a local dental society, study club or other specialty group? How would you structure the presentation? Will you teach or lecture? Teaching and lecturing are not synonymous terms. Anyone can stand in front of an audience and…

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

Orthodontic Management of Impacted Teeth Premium Member Content

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.
