This lecture will focus on the use of CBCT technologies in the orthodontic practice for patient diagnosis and treatment planning. Treatment simulation modules as well as use of 3D radiographs for patient care will be reviewed. The lecture will highlight the use of software to integrate the CBCT, patient photographs and optical scan to form a complete patient profile for diagnostics and planning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the benefit of the use of CBCT in diagnosis of the orthodontic patient.
  • Evaluate the propriety of use of CBCT integrated software for healthcare delivery of therapeutic archwires and clear aligners.
  • Propose treatment based on root/bone evaluation for the orthodontic patient from a CBCT.

Jump Start Your Daily Success: Re-energizing Your Morning Meeting

May 4, 2019 10:20am ‐ May 4, 2019 11:20am

Ms. Beaton is here to show you how to create a dynamic ten minutes in each workday that allows your team to: (1) be well prepared for the day and be ready to work as a team, (2) quickly review critical focus areas and put that vital information to work for consistent practice growth and (3) carry energy and enthusiasm into every day which is shared with your patients, your orthodontic families and your team. All you need is ten minutes. It can be done and your practice can be doing it with a re-energized morning meeting that works!

Learning Objectives:

  • Consistently review a brief and informative ten minute office summary that all staff contributes to.
  • Identify the exact statistics to watch in key focus areas for practice growth and success.
  • Utilize the daily statistics to identify areas that need attention for practice success.

Force Driven Orthodontics

May 4, 2019 10:20am ‐ May 4, 2019 10:50am

When analyzing the treatment results obtained in growing patients it is obvious that the majority of the changes occur as a result of vertical and sagittal growth. The dental movements resulting from the orthodontic appliance has only facilitated the utilization of the growth in obtaining the result. In adult patients, on the other hand the treatment result depends on the tooth movements generated by the orthodontic appliance. Although function and occlusal forces have an influence in theory there is only one line of action of the force that is correct for each tooth movements defined in 3D. This indicates that the necessary tooth displacement should be defined before an efficient appliance can be inserted. The lecture will demonstrate how, when the treatment goal is known, an efficient appliance can be selected.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the tooth movements necessary to obtain the desired treatment goal.
  • Produce an appliance delivering a specific force system directly or by the combination of two vectors.
  • Adapt the mechanics to the periodontal status of the teeth to be moved.

Creating an Effective "Recall" System

May 4, 2019 10:20am ‐ May 4, 2019 11:20am

With effective systems in labeling different types of pre-treatment patients or patients in between phases, offices can gain a more organized way of scheduling these important patients on a regular basis.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify different types of pre-treatment patients and know when and where to schedule them appropriately.
  • Gain control of your "recall" system to make sure you are staying connected with these soon to be active patients in your practice.
  • Glean some new ideas on how to best market to these different categories of "recall" patients.

The Habitually Snoring Child: Much More Than Just Noise

May 4, 2019 10:20am ‐ May 4, 2019 11:20am

The lecture will focus on symptoms and signs of sleep apnea in children, will delineate approaches to diagnosis including those currently being developed. I will also dedicate time to summarily describe the morbidity of sleep apnea in children and standard approaches to treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify children at risk for sleep disordered breathing.
  • Detect those children at higher risk of end organ morbidity.
  • Make evidence-based decisions on approaches to diagnosis of sleep apnea in children.

The Worth of a Soul: Bringing Your Best Self to the Office

May 4, 2019 10:35am ‐ May 4, 2019 11:20am

In a world where politeness is at a premium and cynicism is at an all-time high, a little perspective goes a long way. Join us at this lecture to discuss important techniques to refocus your limited supply of energy into being a better boss, better team member, and better human being.

Learning Objectives:

  • Implement effective communication between team members.
  • Understand the principles of resolving conflict.
  • Master the art of empathy for strangers and loved ones.

Outcomes Following Non Surgical Treatment of Severe Class II Division I Malocclusions: Results from the Pilot Practice Based Research Network Study

May 4, 2019 10:55am ‐ May 4, 2019 11:25am

This lecture provides an overview of various non-surgical orthodontic treatment approaches to treat Class II Division I malocclusions. The effect of various treatment approaches on immediate post-deband outcomes, retention strategies and compliance, long term stability, quality of life, patient satisfaction, and provider satisfaction are presented. The results of the study show that good end of treatment outcomes can be realized with non-surgical orthodontic treatment approaches. The overall quality of life and satisfaction (assessed during retention check visits) was very high. A vast majority of subjects reported that there were never concerned about their appearance, teased, or had to avoid smiling/laughing following orthodontic treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Propose various non-surgical orthodontic treatment approaches to treat severe Class II Division I malocclusions.
  • Recognize the impact of retention protocol on long term stability of occlusion.
  • Demonstrate the importance of orthodontic treatment and how it can influence quality of life of a patient.

One Couple and Two Couple Appliances: Controlling Side-Effects

May 4, 2019 10:55am ‐ May 4, 2019 11:25am

Conventional orthodontic appliances consisting of brackets and wires lend themselves to creative designs that can be tailored to produce desired tooth movements. It is still early in the evolution of aligner treatment so it may be more difficult at this point to avoid biomechanical side-effects. This presentation will compare one couple and two couple mechanical force systems and show examples of situations where it may be beneficial to implement one over the other. Examples of unfavorable mechanical strategies in conventional and aligner treatment will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Use one couple and two couple mechanical strategies successfully in orthodontic treatment.
  • Recognize unfavorable tooth positions that can cause unwanted side effects unless preventive strategies are undertaken.
  • Avoid and correct unwanted side-effects that occur due to commonly-encountered geometric relationships between teeth.

Edward H. Angle Award Lecture presented by the Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient - 30 Years of Achievements: Our Proudest Moments

May 4, 2019 1:00pm ‐ May 4, 2019 2:00pm

Initially, the research efforts focused on growth, showing that it was possible to mathematically model and predict the craniofacial changes that occur. It soon became clear that relative, rather than absolute, growth was key for understanding structures’ response potentials. The focus then shifted to masticatory function and jaw kinematics, demonstrating the detrimental effects of malocclusion and the importance of neurosensory adaptation. Our work related to long-term post-treatment stability showed that orthodontic treatment is not inherently unstable; we now know what causes instability. We then went on to prove that miniscrews can cause damage and that their design can be optimized. Efforts then shifted toward accelerating tooth movements, demonstrating what works and why it works. More recently, we have focused on the diagnosis and treatment hyperdivergent retrognathic Class II's, demonstrating that it is possible to produce significant long-lasting orthopedic changes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize that orthopedic treatments must be based on our understanding of craniofacial growth.
  • Demonstrate how occlusion influences masticatory function.
  • Understand why the effects of surgically accelerated tooth movements are limited in limited in terms of duration and scope.
