In some cases, especially for adults, orthodontic treatment alone isn’t enough to give the patient the complete, healthy smile they seek. Rather, the situation requires multifaceted treatment called interdisciplinary orthodontics, which aims to achieve the most improvement in the most efficient manner possible. Dr. Dale and Dr. Amy can collaborate with your general dentist and other specialists (even including medical physicians and speech therapists) to create a comprehensive treatment plan, schedule procedures efficiently, and ultimately work toward a strong, beautiful smile.

During your consultation with Dr. Dale or Dr. Amy, we can evaluate your mouth, determine what procedures would best meet your needs, and work with other specialists to formulate a clear plan of action. For instance, before you have permanent restorations placed, such as veneers, crowns, or a bridge, you may want to resolve bite alignment or any other number of orthodontic issues so that your restorations can last as long as possible.
In some cases, orthodontic treatment needs to be completed, or at least started, before a patient can undergo dental implant placement. This situation occurs especially in adults who have had gaps in their smile for long periods of time, during which the patients’ remaining teeth shift out of position. These teeth need to be realigned to make space for the dental implant posts and restorations within the arch.
