Avoiding Restorative Failure

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the things we dread in dentistry is case failure, and we loose sleep and stomach lining worrying about it. Cases fail for a multitude of reasons; some minor while others can be major disasters. The underlying cause can be esthetic, functional, biologic or sometimes behavioral. A large majority of failures can be predicted before a case begins, but we don’t look for the warning signs. This program will look at risk assessment in all four areas, and present a systematic approach for examination, diagnosis and treatment planning designed to minimize surprises and maximize case success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Esthetic Evaluation & Risk Management
  • Understanding & Managing Functional Risk
  • Managing Caries Risk
  • Creating Patient Ownership
