Practical Orthodontics for the Non-Orthodontist
 Saturday May 16, 2015     9:30 AM - 2:30 PM

5 Participation CEU   


Incorporating Orthodontics and Orthodontic Concepts into your dental practice.


Orthodontics can be incorporated into the dental practice as an adjunct to pediatric dentistry, crown and bridge, cosmetic dentistry, and periodontal treatment.   Non orthodontists can enhance their practices by incorporating single visit space maintainers, preprosthethic minor orthodontics, forced eruption, as well as interceptive and/or comprehensive orthodontics and Invisalign®.  Early childhood, adolescent, and adult orthodontic cases will be demonstrated with an emphasis on how to start.  Preprosthethic orthodontics as a part of full mouth rehabilitation will be discussed.  The concept of how one can utilize orthodontics to aid in the forced eruption of a gingivally fractured tooth to achieve a proper amount of root structure for crown placement while preserving the biological width will be presented.  The financial & patient management side of orthodontics will be discussed. 


Participants will learn to adjust(single visit, no impression) bilateral space maintainers on typodonts to simulate the clinical situation.  Single visit unilateral space maintainers will also be covered.  These procedures are of great benefit to patients and are covered by almost all insurance plans outside of orthodontic benefits.


This course will be followed by a two year comprehensive course offered to allow participants to pursue the treatment of more complex cases.   This course is co-sponsored by the Rhode Island Academy of General dentistry and the International Association for Orthodontics(IAO) New England.
