Synopsis:

 

In light of increased lifespans and an aging population in Singapore, patients are retaining their natural teeth longer. As such, dentists are increasingly perplexed by frequent encounters with heavily restored or compromised teeth. While some may be quick to indicate replacement of such teeth with dental implants, this treatment modality is not without complications, and certainly cannot be used to recreate proprioceptive feedback inherent to the natural dentition. There is therefore still a place for the retention of teeth requiring more extensive treatment. Careful evaluation of patient, medical and dental factors should be performed to ensure that the time and finances invested in such treatment will provide predictable clinical outcomes.

 

This presentation will detail the various factors that should be considered, including patient factors, prognosis pertaining to restorative, periodontal and endodontic aspects, as well as functional demands. A comprehensive and systematic approach to evaluating these different parameters will also be presented.
