The Love of Orthodontics

May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:30am

In 2012 at the PCSO, Drs. Kravitz and Idiculla were invited to share a stage for the first time ever. Well, now they’re back, but on the main AAO stage, to entertain and educate the entire orthodontic world. Come and see two very different approaches at how they live in and out of the office, but most importantly come and see one unified approach at how they both want to be remembered. Grab your popcorn cause it’s showtime in L.A., baby! Hollywood meets Bollywood!

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the importance of humility, identity, and community.
  • Value the importance of of congeniality over competition.

Profile of a High Volume Clear Aligner Orthodontic Office: Clinical Tips and Secrets for Success

May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:00am

Wondering how an office that starts over 400 aligner cases per year does it? Learn the secrets and efficiencies of a high production aligner office. Dr. Lanzetta will walk you through all of the appointments and steps it takes to successfully manage aligner patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the appointments and materials needed to efficiently process aligner patients.
  • Evaluate the steps and techniques necessary to deliver an easy, simple and efficient experience for patients and clinic.
  • Recognize the tips and shortcuts that help make for an easier day when treating a high volume of patients with clear aligners.

Jacob A. Salzmann Award Lecture - Miniplate Skeletal Anchorage: An Update and New Perspectives

May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:00am

Over the last 2 decades skeletal anchorage has widened the scope of moving teeth. Because of the limited surgery, miniscrews became very popular. However, inserted at the labial site, they limit the movement of adjacent teeth, and in the palate they are commonly used as indirect anchorage. More recently they are also used for bone supported rapid maxillary expansion.

Miniplates resist higher forces and are labially inserted at a distance from the teeth. That makes them more suitable for class II orthodontics, class III orthopedics, and complicated orthodontics in combination with orthognathic surgery.

An update will be given on our latest insights in biomechanics, treatment outcome, and some new perspectives for the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define indications for miniplate anchored orthodontics and orthopedics.
  • Evaluate the outcome of bone anchored class II orthodontics and class III orthopedics.
  • Improve the outcome of miniplate anchored orthodontics.

Reimagine Complex: Key Clinical Factors in Difficult Cases

May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 8:30am

Difficult cases usually defy the busy orthodontic office. It is the orthodontist who decides how to manage and treat those cases with the emotional and biomechanical challenges they present. This lecture will show some key clinical ideas on how to treat complex orthodontic scenarios so they can be easily and predictably managed to fit any type of orthodontic practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify what characteristics make a case difficult to treat.
  • Set treatment goals accordingly to tackle the complex cases in a simple and predictable way.
  • Recognize important treatment tools and the best methods to incorporate them in the office.

Speaker(s):

Cases I Treated Differently Because of CBCT Imaging

May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 8:30am

The information obtained with CBCT imaging in your practice will introduce new metrics to your diagnosis and treatment planning process. Three dimensional airway analysis, improved visualization of the TMJs and the recognition of skeletal asymmetries and transverse discrepancies will alter how you treat your patients. 3D assessment of ectopic teeth can lead to more effective management. Unexpected findings may warrant medical referral. These topics as well as dosimetry and appropriate exposure protocol selection will be discussed in this lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Choose CBCT exposure protocols that are appropriate for your diagnostic and treatment planning needs.
  • Understand how 3D airway analysis and TMJ visualization can be incorporated into your diagnosis and treatment planning process.
  • Recognize some of the developmental anomalies that can be seen within the 3D field of views commonly used in orthodontic imaging.

Sleep Apnea in a Busy Orthodontic Office

May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 8:30am

Incorporating the management of sleep apnea in our orthodontic office is more than just a business opportunity, it is a responsibility we have as healthcare providers. Fortunately, to incorporate risk assessment for sleep disturbances in both children and adults, as well as evaluate the airway through imaging, is not something that would interfere with day-to-day activities, as busy and filled as they may be already. This presentation will show how an orthodontist can get started and offer such life changing services to their existing and new patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Perform sleep apnea risk assessment in your office.
  • Perform reliable 3D airway analysis.
  • Comprehend how different treatment modalities affect the airway.

Speaker(s):

Class II Correction in Growing Patients using Invisalign Treatment with Mandibular Advancement

May 4, 2019 8:35am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:05am

Invisalign Treatment with Mandibular Advancement was studied in a prospective clinical trial in North America. Dr. Glaser will share some of the data obtained from the study and review several patients treated in the clinical trial.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the mechanism of action of Invisalign Treatment with Mandibular Advancement.
  • Identify the target patient for this appliance.
  • Effectively treatment plan mandibular advancement cases.

CBCT Imaging for the Orthodontic Professional

May 4, 2019 8:35am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:05am

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a relatively new 3D imaging technology available to the orthodontist. Dental school and graduate program training in CBCT varies, and this presentation is designed to provide an overview of CBCT for the dental professional with focus on the specialty of orthodontics. Covered topics include different ways to view CBCT data, scan reviewing/reporting, and interpretation principles.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different ways of viewing CBCT data.
  • Understand requirements for scan reviewing and reporting.
  • Apply some basic interpretation principles to the classification of pathology.

Orthodontics and Sleep Apnea: Guidelines for Practice

May 4, 2019 8:35am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:05am

Sleep Apnea has become an important consideration in dentistry. Based on widespread discussion, the relationship between dental treatment and sleep apnea is being defined based on a blend of speculation, experience, and available research. The AAO formed a task force on sleep apnea and orthodontics to develop a whitepaper that can be used as guidance in the practice of orthodontics. While this effort is not yet concluded the highlights of the emerging whitepaper will be shared.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the importance of incorporating information on sleep apnea into practice.
  • Evaluate how the practitioner can work with other health care providers to address sleep apnea.
  • Define the role that orthodontics should play in diagnosing and treating sleep apnea.
