Orthodontics sets up the foundation for future prosthetics in cases with periodontal, surgical and restorative dentistry requirements. Adult orthodontics simplifies complex clinical situations. Making it easier for restorative dentist to achieve better esthetic & functional results. Orthognathic surgery combined with orthodontics corrects skeletal discrepancies in order to have the patient ready for prosthodontic replacement of multiple missing teeth. We will illustrate through combined clinical cases the importance of orthodontics in setting up a proper occlusion prior to the restorative phase of treatment. Patients to be restored with implants will be shown to illustrate our protocol for combined orthodontic/prosthetic cases to restore form & function. This will further illustrate the importance of multidisciplinary dentistry to meet the goals for our patients of dentofacial total esthetics and masticatory function. Cases will show how orthodontics combines with distraction osteogenesis & conventional orthognathic surgery in severe dentofacial deformities. Orthodontics combined with other dental specialties produce an end result that guarantees long term periodontal health and produces patient´s satisfaction with his or her dentofacial esthetics.
