Introduction: Adult patients are seen more frequently in our orthodontic offices. Unlike the adolescent, the adult patient will often need a multidisciplinary approach due to tooth migrations secondary to extractions or periodontal disease. Materials and methods: This article will address the indications and orthodontic solutions to various restorative problems relative to the adult patient. Specific orthodontic mechanics aimed at facilitating and improving the prosthetic outcomes will be described and illustrated with clinical cases.
