Patients that want more ideal facial esthetics and function, may choose to have the interdisciplinary team utilize SFOT to alter the dentoalveolar bone and optimally position the roots of the teeth for the patients’ face. Space may be appropriated to enable the restorative dentist to create natural tooth dimensions and morphology in the worn, eroded or otherwise altered dentition. Surgical, orthodontic and restorative perspectives will be presented to challenge the team to move beyond traditional interdisciplinary therapies into a new frontier for enhanced outcomes.


• To appreciate dentoalveolar bone phenotypes and to limit associated risks using SFOT

• To review diagnostic findings and imaging modalities critical to treatment planning of the interdisciplinary patient

• To present the biology, risks/benefits and execution of SFOT in advanced interdisciplinary cases from a surgical, orthodontic, and restorative perspective

• To identify 5 dentofacial disharmony malocclusion case type patterns and demonstrate how SFOT can optimize orthodontic decompensation movements, enhance orthodontic boundary conditions as well as improve periodontal phenotypes.
