“Digital Aesthetics: The Impact of Digital Design on Aesthetic and Reconstructive Dentistry”

Digital workflow is changing the way we approach reconstructive Aesthetic Dentistry today.  It offers many advantages over our previous analog systems, providing us with predictable treatment for our patients. With advanced CAD software, 3D printing and the newest milling machines, we have a formidable arsenal of tools to work with. This presentation will explore how we can use these new digital tools to predictably treat today’s patients who have demanding aesthetic and reconstructive needs.

“Ortho/Perio in the Aligner Age”

Historically certain orthodontic movements such as forced eruption, molar uprighting, embrasure management, root torqueing, and implant interactions were employed using fixed appliance mechanotherapy for their beneficial impact upon the periodontium.  Aligner therapy has developed to a level of sophistication that allows these movements to be accomplished utilizing removable aligner techniques.  This presentation will delineate the philosophy behind these movements, the periodontal benefit, and display clinical cases that illustrate these methods.
