More and more patients - especially adults - are offered complex multidisciplinary treatment. Is such complicated, repetitive long term therapy always necessary?

During the lecture the management algorithms in patients with hypodontia, tissue defects will be presented as well as changes, which can be achieved in macro and micro aesthetics with a special emphasis on orthodontic, periodontal, implantological and prosthetic treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the risk factors in implantation in the esthetic zone.
  • Propose the correct treatment plan before prosthetic treatment.
  • Evaluate which cases need complex interdisciplinary treatment and in which cases surgical or prosthetic treatment should be avoided.

Stability: Is it an Elusive Goal?

May 3, 2020 10:35am ‐ May 3, 2020 11:40am

Maturational changes are inevitable and impact the stability of orthodontic treatment results.

The attendee will be exposed to knowledge of factors impacting stability and subsequent posttreatment retention management which is essential for successful treatment outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Implement stability goals.
  • Manage the posttreatment interval effectively and efficiently.
  • Evaluate why retention is an essential part of stability.

What I Wish I Knew Sooner

May 3, 2020 11:40am ‐ May 3, 2020 12:45pm

Bill Proffit playfully said, that “No one knows more than a second-year orthodontic resident.” He was alluding to the overconfidence of a new orthodontist who has yet to experience the struggles of private practice. Often, I wish that I could go back in time and speak to my younger self so that I could share the valuable experiences I eventually learned through trial and error; if only I knew then what I know now. This heart-felt presentation will be a journey of my personal and professional growth, from an overconfident resident to a humbled orthodontist. This lecture will go deeper into topics discussed at this past GORP meeting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Change your focus from collection goals to treatment goals.
  • Reevaluate the benefits of Phase I treatment.
  • Discover the power of humility in growing your practice correctly.
