Course Description:

The future of treatment planning is the utilization of digital smile design with 3D integration to create a simulated roadmap of our interdisciplinary cases. Elements of digital smile design can be combined with anticipated orthodontic movement and pre-restorative surgery to fabricate a three-dimensional motivational mockup of our restorative plan. This technology enables us to effectively communicate our goals with our patients, labs, and specialists, increasing predictability and allowing us to begin with the end in mind.

The purpose of this course is to describe the mechanisms of action and address knowledge gaps in facial rejuvenation and related functional interventions for the practicing dentist. More specifically, this course will delve into topics such as uses for botulinum toxins, peels, energy devices to address benign lesions and surface irregularities, volume restoration, and surgical options as well as treatment of chronic bruxism and facial synkinesis.

Course Objectives:

  • How to utilize Digital Smile Design to properly formulate a treatment plan based on Facially Generated Treatment Planning principles.
  • The incredible possibilities on the horizon utilizing the 3D integration capabilities in combination with the Digital Smile Design software to create 2D and 3D motivational mockups to aid in our treatment planning.
  • How to utilize these elements to properly communicate the desired restorative outcomes to our patients, labs and specialists in an interdisciplinary cosmetic case.
