Abstract The adult patient may present with a complex medical and dental history. Comprehensive treatment planning with appropriate consultation among the restorative dentist and other dental specialists is a prerequisite for a successful treatment outcome. This article reviewed the role of orthodontic treatment in the restoration of the partially edentulous patient. The case illustrations presented show the value of collaborative efforts in a multidisciplinary team approach. Although there may be initial reluctance on the part of some patients to seek multiple specialty consultations, the rewards are great for the patient and the dentists who subscribe to this treatment philosophy.
