This book provides essential knowledge for creating treatment plans for adult dental patients. Treatment planning strategies are presented to help with balancing the ideal with the practical, with emphasis placed on the central role of the patient — whose needs should drive the treatment planning process. The focus is on planning of treatment, not on the comprehensive details of every treatment modality in dentistry. CD-ROM bound into book presents five cases of varying difficulty with interactive exercises that allow users to plan treatment. What's the Evidence? boxes link clinical decision-making and treatment planning strategies to current research. In Clinical Practice boxes highlight specific clinical situations faced by the general dentist. Review Questions and Suggested Projects, located at the end of each chapter, summarize and reinforce important concepts presented in the book. Key Terms and Glossary highlights the terms that are most important to the reader. Suggested Readings lists included at the end of most chapters provide supplemental resources. Chapter on Treatment Planning for Smokers and Patients with Oral Cancer addresses the dentist's role in managing patients with oral cancer, recognizing oral cancer and differential diagnosis of oral lesions, planning treatment for patients undergoing cancer therapy, and smoking cessation strategies.

This is the first book to bring together the key disciplines of restorative dentistry such as periodontics, endodontics, and crown and bridgework in a structured way for the senior undergraduate dental student. The book is primarily aimed at the final year undergraduate student who has to present a patient that they have treated for a reasonable amount of time, and by doing so demonstrate a broad range of treatment provision. The key to a successful presentation case is the planning of the treatment at the beginning. There are certain key elements that students must take into account at that stage, for example, collecting all the relevant information about the case. This book provides all the necessary information that the dental student will need when preparing a final case presentation, taking a step-by-step approach to treatment planning illustrated by case histories, colour photographs and radiographs of patients. Every case has several options in terms of the treatment plan which need to be discussed with the patient in advance so that informed consent is gained and the patient is happy to proceed. The book presents the process of forming the possible options and the illustrated cases show the path taken in different scenarios.

This is a sequel to the acclaimed Principles in Dental Treatment Planning, dealing with dental restorations. The author has overhauled the text, making it completely up to date, and has also provided new illustrative material. He has completely rewritten the final portion of the book to concentrate upon practical strategies that may be adopted in d
This book is an offshoot of the Seattle Study Club, a popular continuing education group with hundreds of chapters throughout the US and Canada. Based on the proposition that specific treatments and techniques come and go but comprehensive treatment planning is universal and timeless, this group unites clinicians of all levels and from all disciplines, challenging them to master the principles of total case management through interdisciplinary treatment-planning exercises. In keeping with that philosophy, this book articulates the seemingly mystical process by which master clinicians treatment plan their own cases. Because the authors represent every specialty in dentistry.periodontology, orthodontics, prosthodontics, endodontics, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Dentistry is not only about understanding the causes of oral disease and having the technical expertise to treat them. Patients frequently challenge practitioners with ethical dilemmas, psychological and social problems, health and welfare difficulties, and personal demands. This book covers the case histories of six individuals and the dental problems they encounter through their lives. Each case is loosely based on a real individual to allow the senior dentistry student to develop an understanding of the many issues they may face in daily clinical practice. Although all the patients featured in the book have problems related to oral and dental diseases, their successful long-term management requires both a profound awareness of modern treatment options and a broad knowledge of law applied to dentistry, the ethics of dental care, plus the psychology and sociology of disease and health related behaviour. Each chapter describes a hypothetical patient and how he or she presented, or might present, to a general dental practitioner. The various treatment options which could be chosen by the patient's practitioner are included and the advantages and disadvantages of the various treatment plans are described. The medium and long-term outcomes for that patient, in terms of their oral well-being, are then covered so that the reader can appreciate how even seemingly inconsequential treatment decisions can impact on a person many years after their encounter with the dentist. This longitudinal approach will help the reader to view dealing with patients' problems as a lifetime's work rather than as a set of "one-off" interventions.
"Increased knowledge of treatment outcomes, combined with better techniques and materials, has led to improved managemetn and more predictable results for victims of dental trauma. To save teeth and restore function and esthetics, the clinical approach to dental trauma requires accurate diagnosis of the severity and extent of injury, treatment of the acute aspect of the injury, and long-term follow-up and treatment of injury sequelae. Each chapter is arranged by: description; examination and diagnosis; key points; treatment plan; and treatment procedures. Described is the biologic basis of healing and the benefits of allowing healing to be used in the management of traumatic dental injuries. Also described are the roles orthodontic and restorative modalities play in the management of dental trauma. More than 50 cases and 480 images&—intraoral, radiographic, and schematic&—elucidate the most effective approaches to all forms of dental trauma."--Publisher.
