interdisciplinary dentofacial therapy

George A Mandelaris, Brian S Vence, Alan L Rosenfeld, David P Forbes
Pretreatment knowledge of crestal and radicular dentoalveolar zones and their associated thicknesses can improve risk assessment to meet esthetic and functional goals, particularly when discrepancies in anterior maxillary and mandibular arches exist and when an anterior protected articulation is to be achieved. This paper discusses a new classification of dentoalveolar bone phenotypes that differentiates the alveolar crestal zone from that of the radicular zone and classifies the thickness of facial bone at each compartment to aid in interdisciplinary dentofacial therapy risk assessment...

Long-term prophylaxis achievements, demographic changes, scientific progress, patient requirements, and political regulations through social legislation will fundamentally change the future of orthodontics, i.e., a reduction in children and adolescent therapy as well as an increase in interdisciplinary complex treatments for adult patients mostly outside the social security system. Health care research at a high evidence level needs to be intensified due to social-political reasons. In addition to well-proven appliances, modern sometimes even invisible appliances (CAD-CAM) will be used in future orthodontic therapy...

PURPOSE: To evaluate surgical results, speech, hearing, and craniofacial morphology after primary cleft repair performed from 1973 to 1979. METHODS: During the years 1972 to 1985, all primary cleft surgeries were performed by 1 plastic surgeon, using Tennison lip closure combined with a periosteoplasty on the clefted alveolus at age 3 months. By mobilizing mucoperiosteal flaps, bony bridges were induced in the alveolar process in approximately 60% of the cases. All patients had the soft palate closed at age 24 months by a pushback technique...

Restorative-driven interdisciplinary therapy frequently requires orthodontic therapy to optimally address the underlying dentofacial problems. Limitations in traditional orthodontic techniques and the length of requisite treatment times often create barriers to providers and patients' willingness to accept orthodontics as part of the overall treatment plan. Two main types of surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy (SFOT), each with its own indications and protocols, are becoming popular. They can expand significantly the limitations of orthodontics and greatly shorten treatment times...

Individuals with dentofacial deformities have masticatory muscle changes. The objective of the present study was to determine the effect of interdisciplinary treatment in patients with dentofacial deformities regarding electromyographic activity (EMG) of masticatory muscles three years after surgical correction. Thirteen patients with class III dentofacial deformities were studied, considered as group P1 (before surgery) and group P3 (3 years to 3 years and 8 months after surgery). Fifteen individuals with no changes in facial morphology or dental occlusion were studied as controls...

There is an increasing demand to improve dentofacial esthetics in the adult population. This demand usually requires a close collaboration within the various disciplines of dentistry and the patient at every stage of the therapy. The materials and techniques used by these interdisciplinary clinicians must be conservative and minimally invasive. Fiber-reinforced composite technology offers such solutions for chairside applications. This case report presents two cases where fiber-reinforced ribbon and composite complex was used in a multidisciplinary approach to improve esthetics...

The aim of the present study was to evaluate palatal morphology in Down syndrome (Ds) subjects, focusing on the effect of dental formula on the hard palate to assist clinicians when planning dental rehabilitation. Palatal landmarks were digitized with a three-dimensional (3D) computerized digitizer on the dental casts of 47 Ds subjects (23 dentate males, 9 edentulous males, and 15 dentate females) aged 20-45 years, 37 dentate reference individuals (20 males and 17 females) aged 30-39 years, and 14 edentulous reference males aged 55-72 years...

The early loss of permanent teeth following trauma or congenital aplasia and agenesia need to be corrected by orthodontic or prosthetic means, sometimes combined with implant therapy. Preprosthetic orthodontic measures are often an integral part of comprehensive oral rehabilitation. The individual aspects of treatment are aimed at optimizing dentofacial esthetics and at improving masticatory function and hygiene potential of prosthetic restorations. The orthodontic solution results usually in different anatomic, functional, and esthetic problems...

Modern dentistry, with its various disciplines, has an exciting and unmatched potential to enhance the overall quality of life for our patients. In this environment one of the greatest challenges for clinicians is to properly utilize this vast potential. It can be very difficult to consistently establish health and physiological occlusal relationships in patients with significant dental, periodontal, dentoalveolar, temporomandibular, and/or skeletal problems. This task is further complicated by ever-increasing patient and provider demands for results with optimal dentofacial aesthetics and long-term stability...

The rationale for orthodontic/surgical management of dentofacial deformities was reviewed for single and double jaw problems. Coordinated interdisciplinary work-ups and treatment modalities can produce predictable results. In well-selected cases, esthetics and functional stability are greatly enhanced by the combined technique.
