Treatment planning: From a shoestring budget to champagne tastes

Explore the management of the heavily worn or filled dentition, congenitally missing lateral incisors, advanced periodontal disease and missing lower anterior cases.

Heavily worn dentition

Presented by Dr Fotios Angelis

Learn how to think laterally to offer a range of treatment options for the management of wear.

Management of the heavily wormdentition poses one of the most complex and demanding challenges to the dental practitioner and patient. Real world financial limitations only complicate things further and must be considered when treating this patient group, often for the rest of their lives. Learn how to think laterally to offer a range of treatment options for the management of wear.

Learn how to:

  • Identify which patients are suitable for different restorative treatment modalities
  • Formulate an ideal treatment plan for the heavily worn dentition
  • Formulate alternate treatment plans for patients with heavily worn dentitions who must compromise an ideal treatment plan for financial reasons
  • Better understand the complexity of managing the heavily worn dentition.

Heavily filled dentition in the older population

Presented by Dr Carolina Pérez Rodriguez

Learn the skills to provide a range of treatments to suit all budgets.

Advances in dental care have led to an older population with a heavily restored dentition. Management of this can be challenging due to the financial costs and abundance of options available with today’s dental technology. Irrespective of costs, maintaining a high standard of dental care is always of highest importance. The practitioner must have the skills to provide a range of treatments to suit all budgets.

Learn how to:

  • Recognise normal physiologic changes in the ageing patient compared with the effects of pathology and polyfarmacy
  • Understand treatment planning needs in the aging patient
  • Identify different treatment strategies for a faiing dentition
  • Implement adequate treatment sequence/priority list taking into account the patient's wishes, expectations and budget.

Congenitally missing lateral incisors

Presented by Dr Jennifer Chantler

Congenitally missing lateral incisors describes one of the most frequent developmental anomalies in the human dentition. Explore the many restorative options that exist for the replacement of congenitally missing lateral incisors.

Learn how to:

  • Identify key clinical scenarios to help guide you to choose an appropriate restorative option
  • Recognise limitations of ridge form in congenitally missing tooth sites
  • Understand the options for replacing ‘pink’ soft tissue.

Generalised advanced periodontal case

Presented Dr Nicholas Boardman

Explore management options for generalised advanced periodontal disease.

Being diagnosed with generalised advanced periodontal disease can come as a shock to many patients. Management of these patients can sometimes be simple, but for others, treatment may be complex and expensive. This session will explore the options.

Learn how to:

  • Recognise advanced periodontal disease
  • Understand treatment options
  • Be able to discuss treatment options with patients.

Missing lower anterior

Dr Hossam El-Haddad

Explore the management of missing mandibular anterior teeth.

Management of missing mandibular anterior teeth requires appropriate diagnosis and treatment planning to deliver prostheses that are aesthetically and functionally successful. Appropriate case selection is paramount to decide between conventional FDP, implant prostheses, resin-bonded bridges or removable partial dentures. Explore the factors and considerations that inform that decision for long-term success.

Learn how to:

  • Identify different treatment approaches for replacement of missing mandibular anterior teeth
  • Analyse indications and contraindications of each approach
  • Compare success and survival of different treatments
  • Recognise and understand reported failures in literature.
