Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning: Identify the Issues, Recognize the Risks, Set the Sequences, and Realize the Results
Brody J. Hildebrand, DDS, MS
The advancements in implant dentistry have created the opportunity for practitioners to treat an increasing and expanding population of patients. With that in mind, the needs of this increasing patient pool have expanded beyond the traditional extract, implant, and restoration protocols. This lecture will focus on the importance of planning and coordinating when seeking better restorative outcomes. Much more than setting up cases to receive implants for tooth replacement, use of interdisciplinary planning techniques that actually begin with the end in mind can have a dramatic effect on both the patient’s perception and the clinician's ability to provide previously unattainable options and outcomes. Specific treatment referral recommendations for a smooth transition from team member to team member will enhance the patient experience as well as the final outcomes.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Apply Interdisciplinary Treatment (IDT) planning from the beginning of the treatment planning process.
- Understand the benefits of the incorporation of orthodontic treatment into a patient’s treatment planning process.
- Evaluate patients for success as well as risk aversion.
