Learning Objectives:

Early implementation of maxillary expansion.
Maxillary skeletal expansion, diagnosis, treatment planning, and execution.
Historical and current concepts of Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT).

It is no longer possible to do today’s job with yesterday’s methods and technology and remain a profitable business in the future. Orthodontics is of great importance to Interdisciplinary Treatment and it has been proposed that 70% of cases could benefit from tooth movement to obtain better and less invasive results. With the addition of digital workflows, your team can simply and virtually determine the final ideal plan. How to translate the 3D project into reality is the challenge! Using Orthodontic therapy alone has its limitations. This course will teach the student how to expand the limits by adding adjunct therapies and new innovations for the interdisciplinary team.

Drs. Ramos, Scheyer, Evans, and Alfi will discuss their experiences with digital interdisciplinary workflows utilizing Digital Smile Design (DSD) to guide the practitioners during a collaborative treatment planning process between all of the disciplines in dentistry. We will discuss the use of DSD and Invisalign work flows with accelerated techniques utilizing palatal expanders, skeletal anchorage, surgical facilitation and guided orthognathic surgery. These treatment algorithms will allow for more predictable results and more efficient treatment pathways to accomplish treatments that we could not before.

This amazing team of instructors will cover how to:

  • Use predictable and simple digital workflow to achieve better results for the patients
  • Expand the possibilities Integrating Ortho in the Facially Driven Interdisciplinary Digital Workflow
  • Incorporate facial and airway analysis in the ortho-smile treatment planning
  • Build a stable Class I occlusion according to the adequate portrait of the smile design together with the balance of the facial frame in just one planning, incorporating all specialties in a very straight forward digital plan
  • Combine perio plastic surgery and natural restorations to improve aesthetic results in complex cases
  • Address Acceleration & Bone Biology, – Incorporating Micro-Osteoperforations and High Frequency Vibration with DSD & Invisalign cases and SFOT
  • Use the DSD TAD guide – full workflow and Guide demonstration
  • Utilizing Skeletal Anchorage for Maxillary Skeletal Expansion
  • Utilizing guided Surgical Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy using corticotomies and augmentation procedures
  • Utilizing digital workflow to carry out customized guides and plating systems for maxillary and mandibular advancement.

Rise above line-item dentistry and commoditized dental services. Be part of the fully integrated, digital, interdisciplinary team by creating collaboration between Orthodontists, Periodontists, Oral Surgeons, Prosthodontists, and Restorative Dentists. This course is an ideal setting for the interdisciplinary teams to learn together so they can implement this workflow for improved case acceptance and more predictable outcomes.
