Biomedicine- and Technology-driven Paradigm Shifts in Orthodontics - Jacob A. Salzmann Lecture
Groundbreaking advances in 3D imaging, computer technologies and biomedicine that have transformed medicine are being rapidly adapted and applied to orthodontics. Dr. Kapila will discuss the integration of these advances into orthodontics with an emphasis on 3D imaging, smart appliances, tissue engineering and biologic regulation of tooth movement and facial growth. He will also highlight the implications of these innovations to the future practice of orthodontics.
Demonstrate how to use 3D CBCT imaging to enhance orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment efficiency
Evaluate potential pharmacologic approaches for modulating tooth movement, facial growth and tissue engineering
Define the integration of 3D imaging, biomedicine and stem cells to produce autologous replacements for missing teeth and craniofacial bones.
