Activity Description 

This course focuses on advancements in orthognathic and craniofacial surgery, orthodontics, complex implant treatment, ambulatory anesthesia, and temporomandibular disorders with multispecialty interaction. Topics will include: vertical hard tissue augmentation; management of implant complications; understanding and managing the airway when performing reconstructive orofacial surgery; achieving the best aesthetic results in orthognathic surgery; improving outcomes and decreasing complications in ambulatory anesthesia and dentoalveolar surgery; comprehensive management of the TMD patient; surgery-first, the rationale for this orthodontic approach to orthognathic surgery, and important considerations in 3D virtual planning with surgery-first. Fireside chats will provide opportunities for sharing difficult cases with the experts as well as discussing challenges impacting the specialties. The course format encourages interaction between attendees and faculty in an informal environment.

Professional Practice Gaps

Rapidly advancing technologies in hard and soft tissue augmentation, airway considerations and esthetic outcomes in orthognathic surgery, anesthesia and dentoalveolar surgical complications, TMD disorders, and alternative orthodontic treatment strategies have created a knowledge gap for practicing oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, general dentists, and other dental specialists. This course will provide an evidence-based educational program to present methods for implementing the latest technologic advances in treatment planning and orthodontic and surgical treatment, and will provide a wide variety of treatment options for patients undergoing orthognathic, TMJ, reconstructive, and implant surgery as well as ambulatory anesthesia and dentoalveolar surgical complications.


Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

1. Describe current concepts of vertical ridge augmentation and the management of implant complications.

2. Describe the advancements in the comprehensive treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and other airway considerations for orthognathic surgery.

3. Review adjunct procedures to improve esthetic outcomes in orthognathic surgery.

4. Recognize potential complications that can occur in ambulatory anesthesia with strategies for prevention and management.

5. Discuss a comprehensive approach to a wide variety of TMJ disorders with multiple treatment modalities.

6. Discuss the concept of surgery-first in the sequencing of orthognathic surgical patients and implications and modifications necessary for 3D virtual surgical planning.
