In multidisciplinary smile rehabilitation, planning is crucial to determine the best approach as well as the time of the orthodontic and prosthetic phases.
In such cases, the timing of implant placement and/or tooth-supported restorations before or after aligner therapy can help in several ways. Dr Graham will share examples to illustrate these key considerations during the planning phase. Digital technology enables this mixed approach to deliver a predictable and functional restorative outcome.
