The decision-making process in interdisciplinary treatment: digital versus conventional approach. A case presentation
Perakis, Nikolaos / Cocconi, Renato
The digital technology can be a GPS in designing a multidisciplinary treatment that involves orthodontics and restorative dentistry. A proper hierarchy of decisions and responsibilities need to be defined. Form is everything but position and size. For this reason the orthodontist first needs to set up the proper occlusion deciding the position and the available size that will be necessary for the restorative dentist to obtain the proper form with a minimally invasive preparation. This case report illustrates with a step-by-step approach all the clinical issues of the treatment, from diagnosis to orthodontic guided position of Tads, materials of choice and laminate veneers realization passing through all the interactions between the dental team members explaining who does what and when and proposing a clear hierarchy of decision. A review of digital and classical possibilities for the realization of laminate veneers is proposed with its pros and cons.
