Orthodontic-Periodontal Connection in Implant Site Orthodontic-Periodontal Connection in Implant Site

Summary:

Implant-supported restorations have become an established treatment modality, well accepted by patients and clinicians. Regaining function is now routinely expected, and the focus of patient demand has shifted to aesthetics. Aesthetic restoration of the partially edentulous anterior maxilla can be particularly challenging. The learning objective of this article is to present a comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment protocol, developed to establish a foundation for optimal aesthetics in implant therapy, with emphasis on the role of orthodontics in the enhancement of deficient components. Periodontal orthodontics is used to increase the vertical osseous dimension and preserve papillae; restorative orthodontics optimizes the site through manipulation of supragingival restorative space. Two clinical cases are utilized to illustrate the principles and implementation of this protocol.

Uncovering Labially Impacted Teeth
The purpose of this study was to examine the esthetic and periodontal differences between two methods of uncovering labially impacted maxillary anterior teeth: the apically positioned flap and closed-eruption techniques. The sample consisted of 30 patients who were recalled a minimum of three months after orthodontic treatment of a unilateral labially impacted maxillary anterior tooth. Eighteen of the patients had undergone an apically positioned flap (APF) procedure, and the remaining twelve…

Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implants: Planning with the Aid of Orthodontics

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.…

Management of Complex Orthodontic Problems

Management of Complex Orthodontic Problems
Today implants are commonly used to replace missing teeth in partially edentulous adult orthodontic patients. Because these patients are missing teeth, orthodontic mechanics may be complicated or often impossible because of insufficient anchorage. In these situations, it may be feasible to use the implant initially as an orthodontic anchor to facilitate complex tooth movement and secondarily as an abutment for a crown or fixed prosthesis. This article will discuss the ramifications and requirements…

The Role of CBCT in the Evaluation of Alveolar Bone Premium Member Content

The Role of CBCT in the Evaluation of Alveolar Bone
While traditional 2D radiography has been said to show less than 50% of the anatomy of alveolar bone, the arrival of CBCT technology for practicing orthodontists has given practitioners the ability to completely view and study this area with respect to tooth movement. An update on the related research will introduce this topic with a specific emphasis on the accuracy, application and importance of this radiological advancement followed by the presenter's own protocols for patient diagnosis and treatment methods. Case presentations will be used throughout the lecture to highlight the clinical significance of using CBCT in Orthodontics to anticipate and assess the periodontal consequences of tooth movement.

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.
