Subject:  Orthodontics |  Audience: All Attendees  |  CE Credits: 3 hours Lecture

Course Description:

It is very usual that a candidate for cosmetic or prosthetic dentistry also has a malocclusion. Simply ignoring the malalignments or trying to camouflage them is often not the best nor the most conservative approach. This lecture will explore the reasons why the dentist should often include orthodontics as a necessary component of the comprehensive plan for cosmetic and prosthetic cases. Expert orthodontist Dr. Bruce McFarlane will outline step-by-step protocols and showcase case examples. Participants will be convinced that orthodontics will indeed make many restorative cases transition from good to great. And then will understand when and how, too!

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how adding a course of orthodontics to prepare the case can often result in the outcome transitioning from “good” to “great”
  • Learn to identify which protocol to use and where clear aligners can accomplish the changes necessary
  • Discover module software and imaging that makes “beginning with the end in mind” come to life!
