Join Dr. Vishnu Raj when he presents The Alveolar Limits of Tooth Movement, September 20 at 7:30 pm Central Time (1.25 CE). The envelope of tooth movement is determined by finite osseous anatomic limits, and alveolar dimensions play a significant role in establishing the direction and magnitude of tooth movement.
The first half of this lecture will present the scientific evidence on typical alveolar dimensions, diagnostic considerations, 2D vs. 3D imaging and the effect of tooth movement on the surrounding bone. The latter half of the lecture will go over the management of Critical Boundary Conditions with several examples including some mid-treatment clinical challenges.
