Prognosis of Teeth and Implants: When is it appropriate to remove a compromised tooth or implant? (3 CE Credits)

User Ratings -

Course Description

Determination of prognosis is a critical initial step that precedes and guides the treatment planning process.  Overall prognosis is a culmination of restorative, periodontal and endodontic prognoses.  Despite its importance, determination of prognosis can be a difficult process and often must be made in an environment of incomplete information and uncertainty.  Although prognosis can be used to determine a diversity of clinical pathways, it is often considered in the “treat or remove” context for a questionable tooth or dentition. Prognosis is only one of a group of factors that guide decision making regarding retention or removal of a tooth, an implant or of a group of teeth.  Other factors include patient wishes, provider skill set, strategic considerations, presence of alternatives and overall plan.  General options for questionable dentition are maintenance of the existing situation, optimizing the current dentition through intervention, and removal of the current dentition and its replacement.  This lecture will begin with the discussion of prognosis and will progress to treatment options for the questionable dentition.

 

Course Objectives:

  1.   To review prognostic parameters for natural teeth and implants.
  2.   We will be discussing certain qualities indicating significant compromise of a natural tooth or implant.
  3.    To review means of improving prognosis.
  4.    Further assessing decision-making regarding prognosis.
