"Role of Orthodontics in Interdisciplinary Management of Esthetic problems: Integrating Tooth Movement to Enhance Restorative and Gingival outcomes"


Orthodontic tooth movement can be used to establish an optimal foundation for functional and esthetic restorations. This course will highlight the benefits of an interdisciplinary approach with an emphasis on prescription orthodontics to enhance implant, restorative and gingival outcomes.

Learning objectives:

The participants will learn about:

  • How adjunctive orthodontics managed in an interdisciplinary manner can help the general dentist to produce exceptional implant and restorative outcomes

  • How to manage gingival levels to obtain best esthetic outcomes by choosing between orthodontic tooth movement, periodontal surgical intervention or both
