INTERDISCIPLINARY ADULT TREATMENT: STATE OF THE ART FOR ADULT PATIENTS WITH THE USE OF SKELETAL ANCHORAGE.

April 7 , 2018
More and more adults are referred daily to orthodontic specialists for interdisciplinary care. Inter-disciplinary therapy can improve the quality of the final treatment outcome by the synergy of different disciplines working consecutively with a strict coordination. Orthodontic treatment is always more requested in interdisciplinary care as it can allow to reach higher standards of results thanks to the improvement of the condition of the periodontal tissues and the possibilty of using less destructive restorative procedures. By aligning and leveling the arches, repositioning the periodontal tissues, distributing the spaces through tooth movement, the orthodontist enhances the work of the prosthodontist and the implantologist to realize a better rehabilitation, both from a functional and an esthetic perspective.
The course will highlight the characteristics of an adult patient and the treatment goals, the potential of orthodontics to make implantology possible and prosthodontics less invasive, and finally the potential to eliminate prosthetic need just by using a comprehensive orthodontic treatment.
Anchorage management can be a major problem in adult patients featuring missing teeth and/or compromised periodontal tissues. Skeletal anchorage changed the rules of the game: the option of using simple, safe, quick devices like miniscrews has a tremendous impact on our therapeutic approach, widening the therapeutic goals of modern orthodontics.
