The periodontium is the homolog of a home’s foundation and no architect would think of living in a home with a badly managed foundation. Yet alveolus bone management is largely ignored in traditional orthodontic care, seen as a source of complications, or given only token attention. Happily, in the last decade the basic science of alveolus bone physiology has promised a fertile field of expanded practice, intellectual profundity, and enhanced quality outcomes for traditional orthodontic specialists. But in an age of managed care, commercialization and commoditization of services the post-modern orthodontist and young eager beginners must engage in a kind of post-modern “NewThink” to meet the challenges which this new frontier present.
Rationale: Axiom: This lecture attempts to demonstrate how Dr. Murphy, a certified specialist in both orthodontics and periodontics, has over the last 25 years integrated both disciplines by calling on the principles of bone tissue engineering to make orthodontic care faster, safer and better.
|1) See areas of orthodontic-periodontal integration that go beyond the strictures of wire-bending art.
2) Understand how managing chronic infection and engineering a novel bony phenotype can enhance the appeal of daily practice, minimize illegitimate usurpations of government and commercial third parties that interfere with care, and predictably return tangible professional rewards
3) Preempt patient negligence that often can delay finishing and compromise treatment outcomes.
4) Define quality care according to scientific and professional standards instead of commodity means.
5) Make innovations in orthodontic tissue engineering cost-effective, profitable, and affordable to patients.
6) Minimize the systemic health threat of disseminating periodontitis in adult orthodontic patients.
