The Benefits of Interdisciplinary Treatment

Of course, you wouldn’t want anyone other than an experienced orthodontist to straighten your family’s smiles, but often the best orthodontic cases result when a practitioner takes an integrated approach to oral care! Dr. Brett Coleman’s dedication to constantly improving his skill and knowledge regarding all areas of dentistry allows him to manage complex problems, create solutions for other dentists, specialists, and most importantly, you! 

This expertise has made him a specialist within his own orthodontic specialty. As the field of dentistry has continued to evolve, close communication with a patient’s dentist and specialists are needed to collaborate and design comprehensive courses of treatment. Dr. Coleman’s background maximizes his ability to use the most innovative and advanced techniques available, which ultimately benefits your orthodontic and dental care, as well as your overall health and well-being.

What is interdisciplinary orthodontics?

The goal of interdisciplinary orthodontics is to utilize the skills and expertise of different specialists to provide the best treatment and the best results for your smile! Orthodontics may be the first part of interdisciplinary treatment, or they might come in as a follow-up to other oral care. 

In other words, Dr. Coleman specializes in high-quality orthodontic care for patients of all ages, and works to produce the best possible outcome for you and your family by collaborating with general dentists and other specialists.

The Benefits of Interdisciplinary Treatment

What are the benefits of interdisciplinary orthodontics?

At Coleman Orthodontics, patients of all ages in Syracuse, Ogden, and Salt Lake City will benefit from world-class, thorough, and personalized care—all in one convenient location. With interdisciplinary treatment, you can enjoy: 

  • Improved oral function and aesthetics
  • Efficient, comfortable treatment
  • Concerns addressed with proper knowledge and training
  • Reduced risk of future dental problems
  • Long-lasting, stunning results!

The most appropriate treatment for a patient’s needs and aesthetic goals will be established during your free initial consultation. This may involve an oral examination, imaging tests, and other diagnostic steps to identify the specific problems that need to be addressed. With this information, Dr. Coleman can begin planning exactly which treatments are indicated and an estimated timeline for when these can be realistically completed.

How does interdisciplinary treatment work?

Your smile needs and goals will be determined by Dr. Coleman during your free consultation at our Syracuse office. At your initial examination, Dr. Coleman will thoroughly and personally examine the alignment of your teeth and jaws. He then might advise orthodontic therapy like traditional braces or Invisalign®, either immediately or as a supplement that comes after other dental care. 

For example, he might recommend pre-restorative orthodontics if the alignment of your teeth and bite need to be improved before you undergo restorative dentistry procedures like bridges, implants, fillings, crowns, veneers, or onlays. Another option may be utilizing restorations or periodontal procedures before or during orthodontic therapy, which may be necessary for patients with missing, worn, or damaged teeth or patients with gum and bone concerns.  

In some cases, Dr. Coleman may need to perform surgical orthodontics as part of the interdisciplinary approach. Since he is focused on addressing underlying problems to create a better foundation for your healthy smile, a surgical approach can help solve periodontal concerns, jaw misalignment, missing or impacted teeth, airway concerns, and aesthetic issues that need treatment. There are a number of surgical procedures that range in invasiveness and complexity and can be explained at your evaluation appointment, and can lay the groundwork for a smile that looks great and feels great, too! 

Generally, adults tend to require multi-faceted treatment plans as their oral problems are more likely to have become harder to solve over the years. However, patients of all ages can benefit from an interdisciplinary approach for their dental concerns. As dentistry becomes more integrated into overall health and wellness, there has been more focus on airway issues, sleep apnea, and tongue positioning. For children and adults, this can involve working with a team of medical providers and speech therapists to deliver care that is appropriate for a patient’s individual situation, based on the most current evidence and techniques.
