Lecture

Treatment of complex cases for the rehabilitation of function and aesthetics – is a multidisciplinary task

Common effort of the different dental specialities is to reconstruct a disturbed form, harmonize unphysiologic functional sequences and to optimize esthetics.
The cooperation to reach these aims of different specialities is not an ordinary task and is aggravated by the fact that different disciplines like orthodontics and periodontics with exception of dental clinics and private practices where orthodontist and periodontologist or Surgeon cooperate are usually not within one office. The process of deciding whether one case is treated best with the cooperation of different specialities might be in need of a interdisciplinary collaboration as early as in treatment planning.

In the presented lecture the coordinated evaluation of diagnostic records, planning and case specific treatment are shown. Practical utilisation of these thoughts are demonstrated and occuring difficulties are discussed.
