Lecture on growth and development
Craniofacial growth is a complex process and understanding of the factors
involved is important in connection with orthodontic treatment of children and
adolescents. The face evolves through an interaction between the
development of the facial soft tissue and that of the supporting skeletal
framework, and it is an on going debate whether it is the skeletal components
or the soft tissues which are the determining factors; probably there is a
mutual influence. In the present lecture focus will be on the knowledge
provided from studies of the human facial skeleton. The aim is to focus on the
link between clinical orthodontics and craniofacial growth, with special
attention to growth of the cranial base, the maxilla, the mandible and the
alveolar process.
My Digital Orthodontic Journey
I have practiced orthodontics for 20 years with conventional work-flows – why
did I change? I am not a tech-savvy, but still I manage to integrate digital
work-flows in my practice.
To begin with I only used the digital models for diagnostics and treatment
planning. But with time I learned how to use digital models and different
software’s in a much more dynamic way, which has improved patient
communication and made integration with appliance providers and
laboratories easier.
Now I use digital technologies for multi-disciplinary cases, and I have fully
digital work-flows for both dental and skeletal anchoraged appliances.
However, these digital tools require sophisticated hardware and software, and
we must make up our mind if we as clinicians should have blind faith in all this
new technology.
One think is for sure digital orthodontics is here now, and it will be a part of
our future, therefore we must face our fears and, we should see artificial
intelligence as an orthodontic augmentation, where a sum of human smart
and machine smart will make us stronger.

Digital dentistry for the TMD patient
One of the biggest challenges in dentistry is the successful long-lasting treatment of patients with TMD. In my lecture I will illustrate how digital dentistry can be incorporated in the interdisciplinary treatment of these patients.
I will share patients, in which restorative dentistry and orthodontics were performed. I will illustrate how the use of intraoral scanners, virtual articulators, digital jaw tracking devices and 3D printing has expanded our diagnostic and treatment planning abilities. We will discuss digital tools for the TMD patient in orthodontic and restorative diagnosis, in virtual treatment planning, and for the production of splints, as well as the production of restorations in a stable condylar position. The benefits and limitations of these advanced techniques will be evaluated.
The implementation of 3D techniques can help us better understand and respect biologic principles and borders.

Lecture on orthognathic therapy
A high percentage of adult patients seeking orthodontic care have had orthodontic treatment during their childhood or adolescent years. Many of these patients have skeletal discrepancies that have been compensated dentally, leading to unstable occlusal results and frequently dental and/ or facial decline.
In my lecture I will focus on problems involved in the retreatment of these patients. We will discuss orthognathic treatment goals, and how virtual treatment planning can lead to more stable, and esthetically pleasing results.

Functional solutions for missing teeth in the esthetic zone in children and adolescents

Missing teeth in the esthetic zone either due to agenesis, impaction, tooth malformation or trauma is a common clinical problem. If children are missing incisors, practical and long-lasting solutions are required. Respecting biologic limits and esthetic goals is of upmost importance and may be technically challenging.
I will discuss different clinical solutions, and discuss their pros and cons based on patient examples.
