Orthodontic procedures for the adult dental patient can enhance the result of restorative treatment through the repositioning of teeth whose uncorrected position could otherwise be compromised. The problems of rotated anterior teeth, supraerupted molars, labiolingual reverse overlap, and tilted molar abutment teeth are addressed. Malposed teeth can be treated with a blend of established techniques and recently available biomaterials. These include the use of composite resins, wire technology, and plastic force modules to reposition teeth as a prerequisite to adult restorative care.
