Complex interdisciplinary adult patients
Our orthodontic treatment goal for the adult patient requiring subsequent prosthodontic therapy should be to strategically position the teeth to enable the restorative dentist to establish optimal function and aesthetics while utilizing the most conservative approach.
In patients with multiple missing teeth, severe skeletal malocclusions, periodontal disease, economic limitations, and associated medical issues, these idealistic objectives frequently need to be adjusted to more realistic treatment expectations.
Patient motivation, individualized interdisciplinary treatment planning, and consequent execution of the pre-established therapeutic protocol requires excellent orchestration of highly skilled specialists in order to achieve the predicted outcome.
An array of extremely challenging clinical patients will be presented to illustrate patient and team management for the complex interdisciplinary orthodontic patient.
Aims, Objectives & Learning Outcomes:
Aims: To provide an overview how to plan and to perform efficient interdisciplinary treatments of severely compromised adult patients.
Objectives: This lecture will illustrate how to plan interdisciplinary treatments and how to identify and to master the most crucial issues for achieving successful outcomes in complex adult patients affected by multiple tooth loss, periodontal breakdown, generalized dental wear, and/or severe skeletal malocclusions.
Learning objectives: Following this presentation, delegates should have acquired knowledge about how to approach challenging scenarios due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, generalized abrasions and severe dentoskeletal malocclusions in adult patients in an efficient way – emphasizing the importance of continuous interdisciplinary communication from day 1.
