Session IV: Adult Orthodontics to Resolve Spacing and Tissue Deficiencies


Adult Orthodontics: The Practical Approach


Roger J. Wise
Friday, June 7
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon A-D)

Orthodontic treatment planning for healthy or periodontally comprised adults encompasses myriad treatment-planning possibilities rather than an absolute best approach. Understanding the utilization of orthodontics to stabilize dental alveolar injuries may minimize hard and soft tissue deformities when the patient reaches adulthood. Individualized orthodontic treatment-planning perspectives combined with contemporary periodontal and implant treatment modalities and advancements in restorative care further complement the final outcome. Participants will see the remarkable esthetic and satisfying functional results that can be achieved when the goal of therapy is to provide realistic treatment objectives that are in keeping with the maintenance of a healthy periodontium and stable occlusion.
