Clinical Statement: Staged restorative treatment plan intervention during the various orthodontic treatment phases
Perakis, Nikolaos
New digital technologies have significantly improved patient treatment modalities, especially in interdisciplinary cases. Tooth morphology can be modified at different stages of orthodontic treatment. Defining and achieving the final tooth form at the beginning or during the treatment can help the orthodontist to move teeth into the correct position quickly and more easily. The reshaping of anterior teeth can be obtained using digital technologies and CAD/CAM procedures. Composite resins are preferred to ceramics because they can be modified and adjusted whenever necessary. The parameters to assess the timing of restorative intervention are related to the age of the patient, degree of tooth eruption, and space availability in the interproximal area, especially if an additive approach is indicated to enlarge teeth.
