The Advanced Seminars will meet on the following dates:

March 23 - 25, 2018 Dr. Todd Rowe will present Invisalign, Passive Ligation, Solving Simple to Complex Ortho Problems

Todd Rowe DMD, MS
is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, who practices in Leominster, Ma. He received his DMD and MPH from Harvard School of Dental Medicine (where he is currently a clinical instructor), and his MS in Ortho from Univ. of Michigan. Dr. Rowe will focus on the benefits of orthodontic treatment as a pre-prosthetic adjunct to restorative care. Specifically, he will discuss the role of anterior and posterior vertical bite control, as well as horizontal space creation and maintenance.

Using primarily case studies from 20-30 actual patients, Dr. Rowe will focus on what works and what does not always work in solving simple to complex orthodontic problems. Appointment by appointment photographs will be shown, rather than simply before and after photographs, to help demonstrate the sequential impact of treatment mechanics over the course of active treatment.

It is well accepted that orthodontic treatment can help with prosthetic treatment planning, but we all also know that if orthodontic and occlusal goals are not met, then subsequent prosthetics may be further compromised! Therefore, attention will be focused on predictable and less predictable mechanics with braces and Invisalign clear aligners, in hopes of better understanding the benefits and limitations of orthodontic pre-prosthetic collaboration and treatment.

Dr. Rowe will also extend our discussion from adult treatment to consider interceptive and comprehensive treatment in our younger patients. He will discuss arch development and space creation techniques that can reduce and simplify future comprehensive treatment needs. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of the first few months of treatment and how getting started well leads to better and more predictable results.
