Interdisciplinary Collaboration: An Approach to Optimize Outcomes for Patients with Compromised Dental Esthetics
Dr. Jim Janakievski, Dr. Vincent O. Kokich Jr., Dr. Gregg Kinzer
Achieving esthetic excellence in the debilitated dental patient is one of the most challenging tasks dentists undertake. These patients often require dental treatment to correct specific anterior esthetic and functional discrepancies such as missing or compromised teeth, over-eruption of opposing teeth, extreme occlusal wear, loss of periodontal attachment, or a combination of these. Therefore, planning treatment is difficult and requires coordination of care between multiple clinicians to achieve an optimal functional and esthetic outcome. This lecture will illustrate the importance of interdisciplinary interaction between the restorative dentist, orthodontist, and periodontist. It is designed to demonstrate a systematic approach to diagnosing and treatment planning multiple esthetic dilemmas that are encountered in practice every day, while providing the tools and techniques needed to complete treatment. Drs. Janakievski, Kinzer, and Kokich will place a special emphasis on treatment planning, communication, and sequencing.
