Following this two-and-a-half-day program, the candidate will understand the management of impacted teeth, missing teeth, orthodontic bone regeneration and the interrelationship between periodontics and orthodontics, the interrelationship between orthodontics, and endodontics, and the interrelationship between orthodontics and restorative dentistry. In this program, unique orthodontic problems will also be discussed such as transposed teeth and supernumerary teeth and the use of implants to aid anchorage for tooth movement – and a very succinct approach to when they need to be used, and how and why. This program will also discuss requirements from a prosthodontic point of view of how teeth should be positioned for different restorative options and the use of digital smile design (DSD) in treatment planning patients in all aspects of anterior restorative cases and how this is utilised in interdisciplinary therapy in the most efficient manner will be discussed in detail.
