Interdisciplinary dentistry is proving to be the most effective means by which we can deliver the highest level of service to our patients. Whether addressing specific cosmetic concerns or providing advanced rehabilitation and restoration, through coordinated efforts at the specialist level, we can raise our game and provide a better end result. This seminar will communicate to orthodontists, periodontists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons, and all dentists through the demonstration of carefully documented clinical cases and specific literature siting. Areas in which the various specialists can work in concert to better serve our patients will be illustrated. Examples such as the use of forced eruption, coordination of gingival margins, implant placement and utilization in tooth movement will be examined.
Upon course completion, you will:
- Gain an appreciation for the physiology of tooth movement.
- Gain an appreciation for the periodontal benefits of tooth position.
- Gain an appreciation for the implementation of adjunctive orthodontic modalities for prosthetic benefit.
- Gain an understanding of how orthodontics can interact with implants.
