Bond Failure Reduction with Conventional Appliances and Aligners

Jun 25, 2021 3:30pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 4:30pm

Identification: AS21LDS07

Bonding to enamel and non-enamel surfaces has become easier and more efficient with fewer materials and less steps. The new generation universal bonding primers allow the clinician to bond to composite, acrylic, gold, amalgam, stainless steel and wet or dry enamel with one primer in one step. In addition, maximum strength can be achieved on porcelain and zirconia without the use of hydrofluoric acid. Learn how to reduce your product inventory and streamline your procedures in this 60 minute presentation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Bond any appliance to porcelain and zirconia without hydrofluoric acid.
  • Reduce bond failures with aligner attachments on all intraoral surfaces.
  • Simplify the steps for you and your staff on bonding to non-enamel surfaces.

3D Metal-printed Bone Borne Appliances

Jun 25, 2021 4:00pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 4:30pm

Identification: AS21B19

In his lecture, Simon Graf will give a comprehensive overview on the clinical workflow for 3d metal printed bone borne orthodontic appliances. He will goes through the whole procedure, from scanning implants, integrating them in the stl-file, virtually plan an orthodontic appliance, 3d-metal print the appliance and insert it in the patients mouth. After this, he will share some ideas how to transfer different appliances for different malocclusions into the digital world with metal printed bone borne appliances.

Learning Objectives:

  • Scan and add mini-implant-scans in a useful way in your stl-file from the jaw.
  • Setup a digital-virtual procedure for your bone-borne orthodontic appliances.
  • Decide what mini-implants are useful for a complete digital workflow.

Virtual Collaborative Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning

Jun 25, 2021 4:00pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 4:30pm

Identification: AS21B20

In the current era that necessitates minimizing direct contact with patients and colleagues, virtual treatment planning and consultations are becoming increasingly important in health care delivery. In his presentation, Dr. Kapila will discuss the use of 3D segmented models derived from CBCT in virtual planning orthodontic and interdisciplinary treatments involving restorative, implant, surgical, tooth retrieval and other complex procedures across disciplines. The software platform utilized lends itself to concurrent virtual treatment planning with other providers and virtual consultations with patients- an approach that is highly pertinent in the era of COVID-19. Further, the use of this virtual interdisciplinary platform not only enhances the precision and customization of care but contributes to increased efficiency and outcomes of treatment. These reasons make the 3D virtual interdisciplinary treatment planning approach an important and an increasingly integral part of individualized therapy in complex orthodontic and interdisciplinary care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and apply software platforms that enable cross-disciplinary treatment planning.
  • Comprehend the use of CBCT imaging for virtual treatment and biomechanical planning in orthodontics.
  • Comprehend the use of CBCT imaging for virtual treatment and biomechanical planning in orthodontics.

Key Factors to Consider when Correcting the Vertical Dimension

Jun 25, 2021 5:35pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 6:05pm

Identification: AS21B21

When evaluating a patient we tend to classify occlusal problems in the transverse, sagittal and vertical dimensions, which aids us in establishing adequate treatment approaches. The occlusal vertical dimension is associated to the amount of anterior overbite, which includes the correction of open bites and deep bites. Basically treatment approaches will include extrusion or intrusion of incisors and/or of posterior teeth. Despite speech (function) being more frequent than smiling, clinical approaches may disregard this factor and final incisor vertical position can severely age the patient. Adequate upper incisor display at rest plays a fundamental role in orthodontic and surgical diagnostics and defining the final vertical position of upper and lower incisors and, therefore, how deep bites and anterior open bites will be corrected.

Learning Objectives:

  • Clinically record upper incisor display at rest.
  • Consider the importance of upper display at rest in the correction of vertical problems.
  • Define where to approach the correction of deep bites and open bites according to function.

OSHA, CDC, FDA & EPA: COVID19 Changes for Orthodontic Practices

Jun 25, 2021 5:35pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 6:40pm

Identification: AS21LDS08

The COVID19 Pandemic changed infection control and OSHA safety precautions. The SARs-CoV-2 virus’ aerosol disease transmission increased patient's infection control awareness. CDC, FDA, EPA and OSHA published new guidance for patient and employee safety. Jackie Dorst updates the orthodontic team on the latest guidance prevent disease transmission. Ensure that your sterilization, disinfection and infection control meet the standard of care with the information in this seminar.

Learning Objectives:

  • List required instrument sterilization records.
  • Identify 3 mitigations for aerosol disease transmission.
  • Demonstrate correct disinfection technique.

How Orthodontics is Accelerating the Future of 3D Printing (and Vice Versa) sponsored by Formlabs

Jun 25, 2021 5:35pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 6:05pm

Identification: AS21S11

Learn how orthodontics (and dentistry more broadly) has been accelerating innovation in 3D printing for 30 years. The clinical needs of orthodontic treatment have shaped this transformative technology in ways that echo far beyond the field of healthcare, into manufacturing, consumer goods, and even fine jewelry. Join to gain an entirely new perspective on 3D printing and get a peek at what's next in digital technology.

Anterior Open Bite Correction: Conventional Treatment vs. TADs

Jun 25, 2021 6:10pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 6:40pm

Identification: AS21B23

Anterior open bite (AOB) can be corrected by conventional orthodontic treatment or temporary anchorage devices (TADs). Severe skeletal, facial, and functional problems need to be corrected by orthognathic surgery, but combining cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and TADs provides an efficient and accurate way to correct AOB. Nowadays, we can expand orthodontic boundaries with TADs. In this lecture, various clinical applications of TADs and conventional orthodontic treatment will be discussed in challenging AOB cases along with the new American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) Scenario-based Clinical Examination domains. After the lecture, clinicians will know how to treat and finish AOB cases more efficiently and successfully while minimizing the chance of relapse.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss how to prepare for the new ABO Scenario-based Clinical Examination in diagnosis and treatment planning, treatment implementation and management, and critical analysis and outcomes assessment in AOB cases
  • Identify clinical situations in which TADs would be beneficial in AOB correction
  • Understand clinical applications and biomechanical considerations of conventional orthodontic treatment vs. TADs in challenging AOB cases

Jun 25, 2021 6:10pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 6:40pm

Identification: AS21B24

This presentation will review the concept of using autotransplantation of teeth to treat growing patients who are missing teeth. Special emphasis will be made to guide the orthodontist in using this technique to replace missing and compromised anterior teeth. The orthodontist will learn when to consider the technique, how to work within a team to use the technique, and a specific protocol to follow for success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify cases when autotransplantation of teeth should be considered as a treatment alternative.
  • Follow a specific timeline and protocol to ensure both aesthetic and functional goals are achieved.
  • Develop a team of dentists to work with and how to discuss orthodontic concerns with the team.

Identification: AS21B25

Factors such as age, available space, and amount of bone present can affect the decision to place implants in the aesthetic zone. The winged bridge offers the restorative dentist a treatment option that is aesthetic, minimally invasive, and functional when implants are contra indicated. This lecture will discuss the advantages, and disadvantages, preparation design, and material selection of winged bridges.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the advantages and disadvantage of winged bridges.
  • Identify the different clinical situations where implants may be contra indicated.
  • Understand the relationships between the orthodontist and the restorative dentist when treatment planning winged bridges.
