Dr. Jonas Bianchi presents Data Science in Orthodontics: CBCT databases, digital orthodontics, and artificial intelligence (1.25 CE) as part of a Society of Educators sponsored webinar. We will explore the integration of data science in the field of orthodontics, focusing on the use of imaging data, advancements in digital orthodontics, and the application of artificial intelligence. The session will show how these technological advancements are revolutionizing orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning, and patient outcomes. We will discuss the optimized use of CBCT imaging for enhanced diagnostic accuracy, the latest developments in digital orthodontic tools, and examine how AI is being used for personalized treatment strategies in orthodontics.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding CBCT Technology in Orthodontics: Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of Cone Beam Computed Tomography, its applications in orthodontic practice, and how it enhances diagnostic precision and treatment planning.
  • Exploring Digital Orthodontics Innovations: Attendees will learn about the latest advancements in digital orthodontics, including 3D modeling, virtual simulations, and their impact on patient care. The objective is to provide orthodontists with knowledge on how to integrate these technologies into their practices effectively.
  • Artificial Intelligence in Orthodontics: This objective focuses on demystifying AI in orthodontics. The lecture will cover how AI algorithms are used for analyzing CBCT data, predicting treatment outcomes, and customizing patient treatment plans. Participants will understand the potential of AI in enhancing treatment efficiency and outcomes.

There is collective agreement on the characteristics of an excellent occlusal finish. We all know that a poorly planned case often is doomed to overly lengthy treatment times or a poor finish. In the esthetic finishing of orthodontic cases, there are several enhancements which can be exercised to improve both the smile and face.

Learning Objectives:
  • Implement a checklist of what to look for before starting treatment.
  • Implement the debonding checklist for the completion of treatment and final esthetic enhancement.
  • Evaluate valuable instrumentation in both fixed appliances and aligner treatment for maximum esthetic outcome.
