Interdisciplinary Planning, Development, and Treatment

  • Keith M. PhillipsEmail author


Interdisciplinary treatment planning in dentistry has become both more complicated and facilitated with the advent of dental implants. The use of dental implants allows the practitioner to make their therapies more predictable by removing biomechanical issues, minimizing the need for tooth preparation, minimizing the use of compromised teeth, and allowing for more simplified planning. This, along with the use of digital workflows, allows for more efficient therapies for our patients. This digital world can help in the proper planning for implant placement to be in harmony with all components of the stomatognathic system. Combining the tools available from both the analog and digital worlds is key to contemporary interdisciplinary treatment planning from the initial visit through the actual fabrication of the definitive prostheses.
