Seeking Interdisciplinary Excellence: Ortho, Perio and Implants

Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.




Interdisciplinary dentistry is proving to be the most effective means by which we can deliver the highest level of service to our patients. Whether addressing specific cosmetic concerns or providing advanced rehabilitation and restoration through coordinated efforts at the specialist level, we can raise our game and provide a better end result.

This lecture course will communicate to orthodontists, periodontists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons and all dentists through the demonstration of carefully documented clinical cases and specific literature citing, areas in which the various specialists can work in concert to better serve our patients. Examples such as the use of forced eruption, coordination of gingival margins, implant placement and utilization in tooth movement will be examined. Orthodontic interactions with implant dentistry and orthodontic implant site development from a tissue modification standpoint and establishing correct special relations, will be illustrated.

Dr. Celenza will discuss in depth the use of implants as orthodontic anchorage, both from direct and indirect strategies. From that body of knowledge, future directions for mini screw usage will be shown, including aligner therapy and advancements in that arena. This forum will provide for a platform upon which we can all begin to communicate and explore some of the latest developments, many of which are very exciting.
