This presentation will look at how interceptive ortho-restorative dentistry can be used on every day patients to intercept wear, worsening function, loss of OVD and the slow collapse of the occlusion commonly seen in ageing,

By improving our daily communication with patients in every day check-ups is it possible to easily raise any patients dental awareness to help them understand how their teeth may change through life and what simple things can be done to prevent far more expensive treatments later. The logic of this process is that it allows dentists to do more simple dentistry on patients they already know and who already understand the functional, not only aesthetic benefits.

The overall aim is to reduce risk to the patient and dentist alike

The presentation will look at several patients of varying complexity explaining how the patients were educated through 6 monthly check ups and reviews.

It will cover the key educational factors that helped the patients understand the dynamic changes in occlusion, tooth position and tooth anatomy.

It will look at the different approaches and how treatment was planned and staged. 

Aims and Objectives

To understand the occlusal and functional effect of continued tooth movement

To highlight the planning protocols of simple occlusion- driven anterior alignment methodology using digital arch evaluation and 3d printing

To consider the protection of guidance and the long term function via planning and retention methodology.

To outline the use of edge bonding as a viable non invasive aesthetic and functional tool for cosmetic dentistry and occlusal treatment via the Dahl principle.

To understand how align bleach and bond can totally change the way we approach all cases not just cosmetic ones.
