Principle- Centered Treatment Planning of Complex Cases
Treatment planning of comprehensive and complex cases requires a number of principles to strictly follow to reach an optimal treatment goal. In order to define such a goal, the first habit of being proactive requires the definition of a mission statement: This means that the treatment should satisfy the patient’s needs for esthetics and function ... under healthy conditions. Utilizing the third habit of first things first means for the treatment plan to first determine a single-tooth pre-therapeutic prognosis by asking the following three questions: Which teeth or roots 1) have a secure prognosis?, 2)have a doubtful prognosis? or 3) are „irrational to treat“ ? With this concept, treatment planning will be guided by a pretherapeutic risk assessment of every single tooth. Moreover, the degree of therapy needed is known from the start.
