Generally, our patients are keeping their teeth longer. Whilst this is good it can present us as general dental practitioners with difficult treatment planning decisions. Dr. Bloom will aim to summarise the diagnostic process and outline the many options that are available so we can discuss these with our patients. He will show examples with case presentations.

 Educational Aims and Objectives

  • Importance of a thorough assessment to allow an overview of the current dentition and its prognosis
  • How hygienist support is essential to improve the prognosis of failing dentition
  • An overview of all treatment options to allow an honest discussion with our patient about their preferred treatment
  • The importance of correct tooth preparation and materials
  • The implant options and materials for implant supported bridges

Learning Outcomes

  • How to perform a comprehensive examination and the tools required
  • Importance of working as part of a team including the role of treatment co-ordinator
  • Techniques to fully maximise the life span of the natural dentition
  • Implant options available to help patients function once they have lost some or all of their natural teeth
  • Involve your patient in the decision-making process to allow them some shared ownership of compromised options due to the failing nature of their situation
