Course description

Missing in Action: Interdisciplinary Treatment of Missing
and Impacted Teeth

Monday, Nov. 13, 2023
Presented by Liat Tzur Gadassi, DMD, MSc, FRCD(C)

Congenitally missing teeth and impacted teeth pose an interesting challenge to the entire dental team. In this course, we will discuss some of the most commonly presenting missing and impacted teeth. We will examine the prevalence, etiology, associated anomalies and treatment modalities available in the management of impacted and missing teeth. The importance of collaborative work between the different disciplines in the planning and execution of a comprehensive treatment plan will be highlighted.

Early detection by the dentist is key, as in some cases severe consequences and unfortunate sequelae can be prevented. The contribution of the many specialties involved – Orthodontics, Periodontics, Prosthodontics, Oral Maxillofacial surgery and Restorative Dentistry will be reviewed. The importance of the collaboration and strong bonds between the dental teams will be emphasized as each will bring their knowledge, experience, input and support in various aspects of care. This will provide the patient with the most encompassing, comprehensive treatment plan addressing all aspects of esthetics and function both temporarily and long term.
