In this course, general dentists will receive detailed instruction on how orthodontists can move teeth in preparation for ideal restorative work. The morning part of the presentation will deal with multidisciplinary treatment. Specific topics to be covered include: (1) ideal placement of teeth in preparation for dental implants (e.g. in agenesis cases), (2) positioning of peg laterals for veneers/crowns, (3) bone resorption issues for the orthodontist and restorative dentist in preparation for dental implants, (4) diagnosis and treatment of complex multidisciplinary cases, (5) periodontal considerations, both functional and esthetic, and (6) Invisalign in the general dentist’s office.
In the afternoon, early treatment will be discussed, including (1) simple appliances general dentists can do in their offices, (2) ankylosis, and (3) early treatment appliances such as expanders, headgears, lip bumpers, and facemasks. There will be many take home pearls to use the next day in your office, and participants are encouraged to bring records of challenging cases they have questions about.
