Lecture 1): The Orthodontic-Periodontal-Restorative Interface

Lecture 2): Restoring Form and Function in Complex Implant Rehabilitation


  • Discuss interdisciplinary communication, particularly pertaining to the role orthodontic therapy should play in contemporary restorative dentistry.
  • Address the key elements in determining what is the best implant supported alternative for a given situation.

With the ever increasing popularity of implant dentistry, there has been both great success and also unfounded and ill- advised decision-making in the treatment planning and execution of these cases.

This presentation will take a close look at the planning phase of those patients who are missing multiple teeth and seek therapy while presenting the following conditions:

  • Partially edentulous.
  • Terminal full arch dentition. (Pre-extraction condition)
  • Already fully edentulous.

The presentation will focus an intricate systematic approach, communication tools and therapy sequencing that allow the treating team to delineate a roadmap for successful results, based ultimately on customized treatment designs that are intended to be versatile while incorporating contingency measurements that may become paramount for long term success.
