Pre-restorative Orthodontics in the Anterior Esthetic Case: When to Restore and When to Align
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 engage in more comprehensive treatment and superior outcomes. Through carefully documented clinical cases, the presenters will emphasize communication, decision making, sequencing and execution. Areas in which the various specialists can work in concert to better serve our patients will be illustrated. 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.
To gain an appreciation for some of the decisions involved in interdisciplinary treatment from the perspective of each specialist

Understand the periodontal benefits of tooth position
Understand the periodontal management of orthodontic patients
Understand the implementation of adjunctive orthodontic modalities for prosthetic benefit
To gain an understanding of how orthodontics can interact with implants
Although the potential adverse soft-tissue affects of the LeFort I osteotomy have been described and surgical procedures have been developed to minimize the impact of these changes, patients can still end up with unesthetic results following surgery. To minimize the likelihood of these adverse soft-tissue changes, treatment planning decisions should be made jointly between the orthodontist and surgeon. Of primary importance is the position and angulation of the maxillary incisors, as this will contribute greatly to midface esthetics and often lower face esthetics as well. Management of individuals with anterior open bit, occlusal plane deviations or upright maxillary incisors without crowding will be reviewed with special emphasis on patients with previous maxillary premolar extractions and subsequent unesthetic flattening of the upper lip. The orthodontist and surgeon should be aware of the soft-tissue impact of various LeFort I procedures and how to either avoid or utilize these changes to maximize the patients esthetic outcome.
The orthodontist and surgeon will understand their individual role in providing patients undergoing LeFort I surgery with good midface esthetics
Appreciate the importance of both incisor position and angulation in preparation for surgery
Understand the soft-tissue impact of various LeFort I procedures and how to avoid or utilize these changes to maximize the patients esthetic outcome
Over the last few decades, doctors have become aware of the special issues associated with interdisciplinary dentistry. All of the speakers at this Interdisciplinary Conference have contributed significantly to this awareness and have provided a vision of what a team can accomplish. The main objective of this presentation will be to provide the strategies that Team Montrose uses to execute the interdisciplinary treatment plans. The strategies include a common language for communication, the mechanics of a team meeting and addressing the most common pitfalls associated with multidisciplinary teams. Treated cases will be shown to demonstrate the results.
To provide specific strategies for communication through a common language that allows all team members to communicate effectively during treatment planning and treatment
To provide mechanics needed to effectively sustain an interdisciplinary team and produce quality treatment results
To address specific pitfalls associated with interdisciplinary teams and to encourage and promote the interdisciplinary team concept
This lecture will deal with the advantages and disadvantages of different treatment options for replacement of missing maxillary central and/or lateral incisors in young and adult/elderly patients. The short- and long-term appearance associated with the following treatment options will be covered:
orthodontic space closure - combination of carefully detailed orthodontic treatment and techniques from esthetic dentistry (restoration with porcelain laminate veneers and hybrid composites)
autotransplantation of developing premolars (restoration of the abnormal crowns with porcelain veneer crowns)
single tooth implants (restoration with porcelain crowns)
Particular emphasis will be given to the following: (1) esthetic outcome, (2) practicality and safety, (3) evidence base, and (4) long-term results for each of the alternative solutions. Learning objectives: Appreciate the advantages and disadvantages for the different treatment options to replace missing maxillary central incisors; appreciate the advantages and disadvantages for the different treatment options to replace missing maxillary lateral incisors; learn about the advantages of ultrathin porcelain laminate veneers compared with conventional porcelain fused to gold or all-ceramic crowns; learn about the long-term outcomes when teeth are replaced in young adult patients.

Orthodontic practitioners can usually achieve excellent treatment results. However, in clinical practice there are occasions when unexpected problems arise and when they do, these problems cause anguish for all concerned. Problems may result from questionable judgment in diagnosis, treatment planning or treatment. This presentation will illustrate many commonly occurring clinical problems and provide information on how to prevent and manage them.

This presentation will examine our past, compare our past to today, and offer one mans opinion about what the future can hold. Our world and our specialty are changing rapidly. To take advantage of our time in history is to insure that orthodontics is a thriving specialty in 2104. Change offers challenge and opportunity. We must welcome the opportunities as well as the responsibilities that to with the opportunities and enthusiastically meet the challenges we face.

Orthodontic appliance mechanics are rational and understandable, but considerable obfuscation is commonly used to explain their actions. This presentation will show animations of growth in action and animations of how appliances work. Finally, it will show both processes interacting the way treatments usually happen.
