The incisal edges of anterior teeth play a vital role in both the esthetics of a smile and the functional health of the system. In this webinar we are going to look at how we combine esthetic treatment planning of incisal edge position with optimizing forces to achieve functional success. The anatomy of incisal edges allow for reduced muscle activity and force distribution across the pitch. The bevels are a key feature of smooth excursive movements. Optimizing pitch and bevel are the keys to functional success of both natural tooth structure and restorative materials. There are multiple criteria to think through before you change the size and shape of incisal embrasures and we will cover all of these parameters.

- Recognize the anatomy of an incisal edge and its role in function
- Understand how to combine esthetics and function in incisal edge design
