Pre-restorative Orthodontics in the Anterior Esthetic Case: When to Restore and When to Align
Interdisciplinary dentistry is proving to be the most effective means by which we can deliver the highest level of service to our patients. Whether addressing specific cosmetic concerns or providing advanced rehabilitation and restoration through coordinated efforts at the specialist level, we can engage in more comprehensive treatment and superior outcomes. Through carefully documented clinical cases, the presenters will emphasize communication, decision making, sequencing and execution. Areas in which the various specialists can work in concert to better serve our patients will be illustrated. The forum will provide for a platform upon which we can all begin to communicate and explore some of the latest developments, many of which are very exciting. Participants should come prepared to expand their thinking and horizons.
