Lateral Thinking

May 10, 2023 by AACD Executive Office

by Salvatore Lotardo, DDS, AAACD

Treatment decisions for missing maxillary laterals involve interdisciplinary diagnoses and treatment planning considerations based on stages of development. Often only two treatment options are offered to cover a wide range of case types. This presentation discusses other factors that the dentist should consider while deliberating these cases.

By taking my new 1-credit course, Lateral Thinking: Missing Lateral Cases, on AACD CEntral online learning platfom, you can expect to

  • Learn the difference, benefits, and drawbacks of traditional vs non-traditional treatment options
  • Review canine substitution variants
  • Discuss multiple strategies for untreated adult case types and revisions
