Interdisciplinary Treatment Decisions in Esthetic Dentistry
Speaker: Gerard Chiche, DDS
Successful Esthetic Dentistry is often the result of meticulous Interdisciplinary team planning. An efficient team approach involving Periodontics, Orthodontics, and Implants in support of restorative treatment is based on the mutual understanding and sequencing of each discipline. This presentation will provide a methodical approach to guide the team through the various elective or mandatory treatment options.
1. Surgical Crown Lengthening or Orthodontic Intrusion – Selection Criteria.
2. Opening the Bite with Orthodontics or Increase VDO Prosthetically – How to Decide.
