SCIENTIFIC LECTURE PROGRAM (approx 5.5 hours of CPD)

Real World Orthodontics and Management of Compromised Teeth

Orthodontics is one of the most fascinating and frustrating disciplines of dentistry. Despite improvements in modern technology, comprehensive diagnosis, informed consent and evidence-based treatments are still of paramount importance. The timing of orthodontic intervention for growing patients has long been a topic of considerable debate. Careful and focused interceptive treatment for localised problems can be of great benefit, however, wholesale prescription of early treatment to either prevent or treat malocclusion is questionable. Astute marketing by supply companies and practitioners have certainly whetted the appetite for short-term orthodontic alignment with braces or clear plastic aligners. Digital treatment planning and outcome predictions may appear impressive, however, difficulties arise when the progress of treatment or the final result do not match the predictions. We will explore how increasing patient expectations require increasing clinical competency and awareness to prevent the pitfalls in practice.

Compromised teeth with questionable prognosis may result in short and long-term clinical dilemmas. Such compromise may arise from developmental anomalies, caries, large restorations, trauma, tooth wear and periodontal disease. There are many factors to consider when formulating the relevant and reasonable treatment options for such patients. Incorporating orthodontic treatment into the comprehensive treatment plan has the potential to significantly improve both aesthetic and functional outcomes in challenging cases. The use of lateral thinking, interdisciplinary consultation and emerging technology may also facilitate the overall case management.
