Description:
It's well known that orthodontics can make significant improvements in dental aesthetics and facial appearance, but there are other applications where orthodontics also can favorably affect oral health. In addition, there are several common adverse clinical outcomes associated with orthodontic treatment that should be understood. This course will provide an evidence-based review of the positive and negative effects of orthodontic treatment.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • explain how orthodontic treatment can serve as a valuable adjunct to other dental procedures to potentially enhance restorative and periodontal treatment success.
  • list applications when orthodontic treatment can minimize or eliminate the need for prosthodontic replacement of missing teeth.
  • describe the etiology of external apical root resorption.
  • determine the best approaches for prevention and treatment of orthodontic-associated white spot lesions.
  • detail the latest evidence on post-orthodontic stability and approaches to retention.
