“Seeking Interdisciplinary Excellence”
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 citing. 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.
Orthodontic interactions with implant dentistry will be examined in detail. Orthodontic
implant site development, both from a tissue modification standpoint and establishing
correct special relations, will be illustrated. Further, the use of implants as orthodontic
anchorage will be illustrated in depth, both from direct and indirect strategies. From that
body of knowledge, future directions for miniscrew usage will be shown, including
aligner therapy and advancements in that arena.
The forum will provide for a platform upon which we can all begin to communicate and
explore some of the latest developments, many of which are very exciting. Participants
should come prepared to expand their thinking and horizons.
Participants of this seminar will gain an appreciation for and understanding of:
1) The physiology of tooth movement
2) The periodontal benefits of tooth position
3) The implementation of adjunctive orthodontic modalities for prosthetic benefit
4) How orthodontics can interact with implants
