Presentation Title: Ortho-Perio considerations in positioning of the upper incisors

As When a patient complains of gingival smile, is it because of the position of the teeth? Or maybe it is the position of the lip? Does the periodontium have any relationship to the gingival display? Correction of excessive or deficient incisor display requires an interdisciplinary approach; this includes precise diagnosis, management, sequence, timing and communication among all members of the team and the patient. Vertical positioning of the upper incisor is paramount to achieving optimal esthetics. Macro, mini and micro-esthetic concepts should be incorporated into your routine systems in the office.

Learning objectives:

  • Classification and diagnosis of excessive and deficient incisor display
  • Sequence and timing of orthodontic and periodontic approach
  • Guidelines for optimal esthetics
