Patients today have a heightened awareness of dental esthetics and desire to obtain the best cosmetic results possible. A patient may present with very crooked teeth that have been chipped due to years of wear from an improper bite. The result can be unattractive teeth of different size, shape and color. Other patients present with one or more missing tooth. Orthodontic alignment of teeth in these situations simply cannot obtain the best results without the assistance of other dental disciplines to restore the teeth to optimally enhance the smile.
We are fortunate that in our community there are many outstanding cosmetic and restorative dentists as well as the complete array of dental specialists. Over the past 17 years we have worked with literally hundreds of different dentist. Our job as your orthodontist is to “quarterback” the treatment by coordinating the specifics of your treatment with your dentist and any other specialist involved. We pride our self in having excellent communication that results in your treatment progressing smoothly and keeping your treatment on schedule.
Following are some examples of interdisciplinary cases that we have treated in conjunction with general dentist, cosmetic dentist, periodontists, prosthodontists and oral surgeons to obtain the best cosmetic and functional results possible.
