Restorative dentistry meets the esthetic and functional preferences of our patient’s. Interdisciplinary dentofacial therapy (IDT) is a tool to simplify complex orthodontic and restorative patient treatment. Most complex restorative and orthodontic cases involve insufficient space appropriation due to inadequate clinical crown dimensions. Space is lost when teeth erupt and migrate to maintain occlusal and interproximal contact. Various dental conditions result in deficient tooth dimensions and poor tooth position: absence of teeth; faulty genetics; reduced tooth size from attrition, erosion, and inadequate restorations. Co-discovery, sleep apnea, sophisticated diagnostic treatment planning and surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy (SFOT) will be discussed.

Participants will learn:

Who is at risk?
Recognize why a technician cannot solve space appropriation problems shuffled to them by the dentist.
How to visualize adequate space with transitional restorations.
Understand the importance of continual dialogue and refining treatment goals.
How to differentiate craniomandibular dimensions vs intra-arch and inter-arch dimensions.
Appreciate the incorporation of SFOT in IDT.
How to diagnose joint based malocclusions.
