Adjunctive Esthetic Surgery for the Adult Patient

The public is well aware from the current onslaught of advertising that the esthetic space is occupied by plastic surgeons, smile enhancement through tooth whitening, veneers, and implants. But in today’s world, thinking of the orthodontist as the person from whom to seek esthetic enhancement seems to be something you do for your kids. Recognition of the importance of the face has arrived at a much faster pace in orthodontics than the appreciation of what we do in other medical and dental specialties. But in many instances, the orthodontist is the place to start if we recognize the possibilities available to us in interdisciplinary care. In this presentation, Dr. Sarver will present the concept of the orthodontist being the “quarterback” of many esthetic treatment plans, and how to execute that vision.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the elements of the ideal face bin 3 dimensions
  • Relate the options available for improvement of facial presentation
  • Recognize the methods of communication vital to patient comprehension of their choices

Esthetic Periodontal Surgery for Adults

Interdisciplinary coordination with other specialists will be elucidated.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the criteria for deciding on surgical correction
  • Determine what type of esthetic problems the orthodontist should refer
  • Analyze how predictable are the surgical procedures
