Abstract

The aim of this study is to underline the importance of the collaboration and consultation between specialists in different branches of dentistry, to obtain the best long-term results, concerning both function and aesthetics. In the last decade improved assistance in dental practices, together with a greater preventive mood within populations towards oral health, has determined an increase in the number of patients requiring more complex and sophisticated interventions. Orthodontists are not treating only children and adolescents with intact, non restored dentitions, but, increasingly, patients, above all adults, that have a different set of problems: abraded and ruined teeth, poorly contoured restorations, underlying periodontal disease, bone lesions, missing teeth and skeletal discrepancies. These problems may result in tipping, supereruption, poor inclination, abnormal wear and TMJ disorders that challenge the orthodontist. In all patients treated through a multidisciplinary approach we have observed a greater stability and economy of dental and periodontal tissues with important long-term results.
