2018 Webinar - Pragmatic and Peculiar Practice Pearls

Credits: None available.

Orthodontics is a wonderful profession that provides clinicians with an opportunity to make a significant and lasting impact on the many patients they treat. While clinical care offers a multitude of rewards, it can also present a number challenges that require careful consideration to resolve. While such clinical challenges may appear to be daunting at first glance, many can be addressed with the application of simple and practical approaches. This presentation will review a series of clinical techniques that can be utilized to address simple and more complex problems observed during the management of orthodontic patients in a clinical settings.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Employ simple techniques to address common and sometimes challenging orthodontic problems
  2. Describe clinical techniques that will help increase office efficiency

Baldwin Associate Professor of Orthodontics and currently serves as the Graduate Program Director and Clinic Director of the Orthodontic Department. His research interests include the assessment of orthodontic treatment efficiency and student performance predication and assessment. 

Dr. Stewart holds membership in a number of regional, national, and international organizations and is currently the Immediate-Past President of the Indiana Association of Orthodontists, Great Lakes Association of Orthodontics Representative to the American Association of Orthodontists Council on Education, and President-elect for the American Association of Orthodontists- Society of Educators.

Along with his academic career, Dr. Stewart engages in active orthodontic patient care through his orthodontic practice in the Indianapolis area. In December of 2013, he became a proud Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. Finally, Dr. Stewart has been recognized for his excellence in and commitment to teaching and community service having been nationally recognized for his merit in teaching when he received the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Charles Craig Teaching Award.

2018 Webinar - Is Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders Another Deja Vu Of Temporomandibular Disorders In Orthodontics?

Credits: None available.

Recently, there has been much attention towards sleep-related breathing disorders (SBD) among orthodontic communities.  Children with SBD can often develop distinctive facial characteristics.  SBD in adults can result in serious morbidity and mortality. Treating these patients presents unique opportunities for orthodontists to collaborate with other medical specialties to improve a patient's health and treatment outcome.  However, there are many opinions and claims related to this topic without proper research data. This webinar will discuss the most current scientific evidences regarding the relations between various controversial orthodontic issues and sleep breathing disorders.

Learning objectives:

  1. Recognize the pathophysiology of SBD.
  2. Learn how to evaluate potential SBD patients.
  3. Apply the evidence based practice to deal with SBD patients.

2018 Webinar - Facial Esthetics Oriented Treatment Planning with VTO and TADs

Credits: None available.

Orthodontic treatment outcome is primarily a result of the mechanotherapy and clinical management of the case. Perhaps, the major key to orthodontic treatment planning is to identify the direction and amount of dental movements required within each quadrant. Without sound objectives and proper planning, anchorage requirements could easily be overlooked. While cephalometric analyses are helpful in providing a rough estimate of skeletal and dental relationships, treatment goals need to be developed accordingly with the face. In this presentation, instead of using the mandibular incisor position as the primary criterion, the aim is to provide a facial esthetics oriented treatment approach using the maxillary incisor position as the starting point while the mandibular arch still serves as the diagnostic arch. In this context, virtual treatment objective (VTO) is a critical tool for anchorage planning and reinforcement together with the use of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) and other conventional mechanics. Secondly, it is aimed to present the importance of strategic TAD placement in their stability and overall efficiency throughout the treatment.

Course objectives:

1.  Obtain a working knowledge of facial-esthetics oriented treatment objectives

2.  Gain an appreciation for planning proper orthodontic tooth movement and anchorage control in each quadrant

3.  Apply anchorage reinforcement strategies accordingly with treatment objectives

2018 AAO Winter Conf - What to do When All Teeth are Impacted? The Challenge of CCD / Q & A Session: Chaushu & Becker

Credits: None available.

This presentation discusses the need for differential orthodontic treatment timing for Cleidocranial dysplasia. A customized design for an appliance that is able to provide anchorage while applying efficient directional mechanics, with only minor modifications to suit each of the several stages of the plan, will be described. Our experience with timing of the staged surgical exposures of the groups of unerupted teeth and the active role that the orthodontist must play in the procedure, will be related.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the appropriate time for each of the several orthodontic and surgical stages of treatment.
  • Design the orthodontic appliance that will provide adequate anchorage to actively erupt the impacted teeth.
  • Recognize the scope and the value for active participation of the orthodontist in the surgical episodes.

Impaction of maxillary canines ranges from 1-3%, with an associated 67% risk of resorption of adjacent teeth. The literature is brimming with studies investigating the efficacy of various measures intended to prevent, to intercept and/or to mitigate the severity of impaction of maxillary canine teeth. Timely extraction of the deciduous canines, the deciduous canines and deciduous first molars, space preparation, molar distalization and maxillary expansion may avoid impaction Nevertheless, the success of these approaches is dependent on the early diagnosis by the primary pediatric dentist. The lecture will overview the clinical and radiographic clues of incipient impactions and discuss the scientific evidence underlying the various treatment approaches.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the clinical and radiographic signs of incipient impaction.
  • Evaluate the proper timing for application of the preventive/interceptive approach.
  • Decide which is the most suitable preventive/interceptive approach in the particular case.

2018 AAO Winter Conf - Dental Transplants: What We Know

Credits: None available.

Autotransplantation of developing teeth can be applied to replace congenitally missing or traumatically lost teeth. Surgical uprighting (trans-alveolar transplantation) of is also an attractive option to treat severely impacted developing teeth. The key issues for successful implementation of tooth transplantation into clinical dentistry include proper donor selection and careful post-surgical management. The current state of knowldege and the perspectives for implementation of tooth transplantation into clinical dentistry will be presented during the lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Select patients in whom tooth transplantation can be applied.
  • Select teeth, which can serve as the best donors for tooth transplantation.
  • Evaluate post-surgical healing of transplanted teeth and position them for optimal reshaping when replacing maxillary incisors.

2018 AAO Winter Conf - Current Concepts in Orthodontics to Manage Dental Trauma

Credits: None available.

This lecture will review management of immediate trauma with orthodontics. In many trauma cases, teeth have been violently displaced and are difficult to reposition to their original location. This lecture will also discuss the implications of dental trauma for patients scheduled to begin orthodontic treatment and patients currently in treatment. Last, the lecture will touch on the long term implications of trauma and factors the clinician should consider during treatment planning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Implement orthodontic tooth movement concepts to move displaced teeth into proper position with minimal strain on the tooth and supporting structures.
  • Determine when is the best time to start orthodontic treatment after a traumatic dental injury.
  • Discuss the different treatment options available to a patient who has suffered a traumatic dental injury.
