AAO 2021 Annual Conference - Innovative Concepts in Esthetic Treatment Design

Jun 25, 2021 2:00pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 2:45pm

Concepts in smile design continue to evolve rapidly in the orthodontic specialty. Drawing on our interdisciplinary collaborative experiences, much has been learned from our restorative colleagues. But there are many things that as orthodontists we can provide in smiles and their design and treatment that only orthodontists can provide. In this presentation, Dr. Sarver will present some recent concepts that challenge our conventional way of thinking.

Learning Objectives:

  • Make significant cognitive insights in terms of orthodontic treatment planning.
  • Learn new interdisciplinary procedures which will expand your treatment choices.
  • Communicate with patients "the difference".

AAO 2021 Annual Conference - 2021 John Valentine Mershon Award Lecture; New Technologies for Controlling White Spot Lesions

Jun 25, 2021 3:40pm ‐ Jun 25, 2021 4:25pm

Modern concepts of cariology are reviewed with emphasis on the early invisible lesions that often lead to white spot decalcifications during orthodontics treatment. Recent technologies for detecting early carious lesions are recommended as routine diagnostic procedure prior to active treatment with fixed or removable appliances. Routine treatment progress evaluations of decalcifications should include assessment of insipient invisible lesions. Control of biofilm pathogenecity is particularly important for treatment with aligners. Prevention and control of enamel decalcifications requires pretreatment, progress and follow-up evaluations to detect early lesions that can be managed with control of biofilm and remineralization procedures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Diagnose insipient carious lesions that can lead to decalcifications.
  • Monitor the correction or progression of invisible lesions during and after treatment.
  • Utilize advanced technologies to prevent or at least control white spot lesions.

AAO 2021 Annual Conference - Treatment of Maxillary Deficiency with Facemask and TADs

AAO 2021 Annual Conference - Treatment of Maxillary Deficiency with Facemask and TADs

Jun 26, 2021 9:00am ‐ Jun 26, 2021 9:30am

Patients with Class III malocclusion and an anterior crossbite were successfully treated with facemask therapy in the mixed dentition. What about patients in the early permanent dentition? Can the addition of skeletal anchorage or TADs help in reducing the side effects of maxillary protraction? If so, what is the clinical protocol for management of these patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Decide on the type of Class III patients that will be benefited by the use of skeletal anchorage or TADs for maxillary protraction.
  • Learn the advantage of using skeletal anchorage for maxillary expansion and protraction.
  • Implement the clinical management of patients treated with maxillary expansion with facemask and TADs.
