To make matters even more challenging, none of the treatments we provide is without adverse outcomes and none will likely last for the life of the patient. Using evidence-based research, this book shows how risk assessment, prognosis, and expected treatment outcomes factor into the planning process. General information ; Chief complaint patient expectations Any discussion of diagnosis and treatment must begin with an appreciation of the role of the dentist in helping patients maintain their oral health. e combined use of all examination methods may be. should be instituted to promote remineralization. Proper instruments, including a mirror, an explorer, and a periodontal probe, are required. The marginal ridge portion of the amalgam restoration should be compatible with the adjacent marginal ridge. 3.3 Caries may be diagnosed clinically by careful inspection. e heavy occlusal loading may also lead to the development of a pronounced occlusal wear facet. Eating disorders17. From the time an intake appointment is scheduled, the Intake Clinician is the point person for the client until they are matched with a TRC Clinician. Document created November 2004. e gingival tissue should be assessed for signs of inammation (redness, edema, tenderness, bleeding on probing). Exogenous acidic agents such as lemon juice (through sucking on lemons) may cause crescent-shaped or dished defects (rounded as opposed to angular) on the surfaces of teeth exposed to the agent (see Fig. Genetic abnormality of teeth14. Your doctor will try to rule out physical problems that could cause your symptoms. These findings will be governed by: 1) Patient’s mental attitude. 3.12) derived from clinical trials data. e clinical examination is performed systematically in a clean, dry, well-illuminated mouth. e chapter assumes that the reader has a, background in oral medicine and an understanding of how to, perform complete (comprehensive) extraoral and intraoral hard, and soft tissue examinations, as well as an understanding of the, chapter to incorporate the details of other aspects of a complete, dental examination, such as periodontal, occlusal, and esthetic, examinations. e answer is that we must, acknowledge that the information or evidence we have is not perfect, e success of operative treatment depends heavily on an, appropriate plan of care, which, in turn, is based on a compr, problems. Areas of signicant occlusal attrition that have exposed dentin, are sensitive, or annoying should be considered for restoration or at least protection from additional loss of tooth structure. Refer to Chapter 2 for more information on how CAMBRA is used to determine caries risk and how this determination helps the clinician in the decision-making process for surgical or nonsurgical therapeutic interventions.In relation to operative dentistry, risk assessments are made for caries, erosive tooth wear, and structural problems of teeth such as fractures. Clinical caries lesion detection has been found lacking and improvement is needed. Most dentists use magnications of 2× to 4×. Complete cusp fracture is a common occurrence in posterior teeth. Using this uorescent technology, the data captured by the Spectra system are analyzed by imaging software, which highlights the lesions in dierent color ranges and denes the potential caries activity on a scale of 0 to 5.e CarieScan PRO (CarieScan, LLC, Charlotte, NC) is a device for the detection and monitoring of caries by the application and analysis of ACIST (AC Impedance Spectroscopy Technology). TRC ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT PLANNING Page 74 of 228 evaluation and treatment plan for each client are completed with accountability, and promotes the highest quality of care for TRC clients. is phase is discussed in more detail in the section on interdisciplinary considerations in operative treatment planning.Maintenance (Reassessment and Recare) Phasee maintenance phase includes regular reassessment (synonyms include reevaluation, periodic) examinations that may reveal the need for adjustments to prevent future breakdown, provide an opportunity to reinforce home care, and plan recare treatment steps where disease has returned. A trained assistant familiar with the terminology, notation system, and charting procedure can survey the patient’s teeth and existing restorations and record the information to save chair time for the dentist. and serve as a source for transferring pathogenic bacteria among, pit-and-ssure caries is contraindicated as part of the detection, An occlusal surface is examined visually and radiographically, e visual examination is conducted in a dry, eld. If the void is at least 0.3 mm deep and is located in the gingival third of the tooth crown, the restoration is judged as defective and should be repaired or replaced. Many chronic diseases of the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, renal, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, immune, and neurologic systems are associated with aging, inuence dental disease, and complicate dental treatment decision making. When choosing loupes, several parameters should be considered. Simply put, skipping steps may lead to overlooking potentially important parts of the patient’s individual needs. Sealants are defined as confined to enamel. This movement has been termed evidence-based dentistry and is defined as the “conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients.”1 Systematic reviews emerging from the focus on evidence-based dentistry will provide practitioners with a distillation of the available knowledge about various conditions and treatments.

This analytic approach relies on “2 × 2” contingency tables (Fig. helpful in arriving at an accurate nal diagnosis. Review of the dental history often reveals information about past dental problems, previous dental treatment, and the patient’s responses to treatments. I, increase the likelihood of food impaction and tooth or restoration, e results of the occlusal examination should be included in, Acceptable aspects of the occlusion must be preserved and not, occlusion (elimination of interferences), based on knowledge of, the physiologic masticatory muscle response t, is desirable; occlusal interferences must not be perpetuated in the, A trained assistant familiar with the terminology, dentist. Diagnosis and Treatment Planning in Dentistry 3rd Edition provides a full-color guide to creating treatment plans based on a comprehensive patient assessment. Dentists must remember that a reasonable alternative often is not to intervene directly with restorative care. Restorative treatment is not indicated. However, images can be distorted, and working lengths can be less than ideal. When smooth and cleanable, such areas do not warrant restorative intervention unless they are esthetically oensive to the patient. Care must be exercised in distinguishing nonhereditary developmental enamel hypoplasia from an early enamel caries lesion.Rare genetic disorders aecting enamel and dentin may be discovered during clinical examination. However, there are currently no published long-term randomized, controlled clinical trials verifying this to actually be the case. EC Dental Science 18.5 (2019): 975-988. Hintze H, Wenzel A, Danielsen B, et al: Reliability of visual examina-tion, ber-optic transillumination, and bite-wing radiography, and reproducibility of direct visual examination following tooth separation for the identication of cavitated carious lesions in contacting approximal surfaces. Chicago, American Dental Association.49. The dentist subsequently performs the examination, confirms the charting, makes a diagnosis, establishes a risk assessment profile for the patient, establishes a prognosis, and develops the treatment plan in conjunction with the patient’s current needs and desires. Cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer disease, depression, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, and diabetes are a few of the diseases that commonly aect older adults, and their medical management increases in complexity with advancing years. In addition to transillumination, tactile exploration of, anterior teeth is appropriate to detect cavitation because the pro, surfaces generally are more visible and accessible than in the posterior, Another form of smooth-surface caries may occur on the facial, and lingual surfaces of the teeth of patients with high caries activity, e earliest clinical evidence of early enamel lesions on these surfaces, is a white spot that is visually dierent from the adjacent translucent, enamel that appears when the surface is dried. 3.4A). e benet of these restorations is that they cover and reinforce cusps without removal of healthy tooth structure in the middle and cervical areas of the facial and lingual surfaces (see Online Chapter 18). Because every precaution should be taken to minimize radiation exposure, protective thyroid collars and aprons should be used, whenever possible. Compared with high-powered loupes, dental microscopes allow the clinician to view intraoral structures at a higher level of magnification while maintaining a broader field of view. The term sensitivity indicates the proportion of individuals with disease in any group or population that is identified positively by the test. Developmental or acquired disability12. is is sometimes expressed by using color-coded categories: red for high risk, yellow for medium risk, and green for low risk. Personal details Name, age, sex address and occupation are recorded in the patient’s file. e discoloration may range from white to dark brown, with rapidly progressing caries usually being light in color. Working-side excursive contacts are recorded and related to areas of cusp fracture development. is is accomplished in light of the reality that when individual teeth are correct in their anatomic shape, and positioned in the face and arches for optimum function, then the overall esthetic result will be optimal (“form follows function”). Using this fluorescent technology, the data captured by the Spectra system are analyzed by imaging software, which highlights the lesions in different color ranges and defines the potential caries activity on a scale of 0 to 5. The supercial staining is extrinsic and occurs over several years of oral exposure in a person with low caries risk. is role is summarized by the Latin phr, ). For example, deep developmental ssures that cross between marginal or cusp ridges may predispose posterior teeth to fracture. Most dentists use magnifications of 2× to 4×. In addition to transillumination, tactile exploration of anterior teeth is appropriate to detect cavitation because the proximal surfaces generally are more visible and accessible than in the posterior regions.Another form of smooth-surface caries may occur on the facial and lingual surfaces of the teeth of patients with high caries activity, particularly in the cervical areas that are less accessible for cleaning. This improper use of a sharp explorer has been shown to irreversibly damage the tooth by turning a sound, remineralizable sub-surface lesion into a possible cavitation that is prone to progression. In general, higher magnication systems are heavier, have a narrower eld of view, are more expensive, and require more light than lower power systems. Appropriate textbooks that co. these areas, in health and disease, should be consulted. ese conditions must be considered when planning dental treatment. The patient’s medical history, dental history, oral hygiene, diet, and age, among other caries risk factors and indicators, can suggest a prediction of current and future caries activity. B, Improper contour. Risk factors should be identified at least on an annual basis. The largest manufacturers of dental microscopes include Carl Zeiss, Inc. (Dublin, CA); Global Surgical Corporation (St. Louis, MO); and Seiler Precision Microscope Instrument Company (St. Louis, MO). is information is then combined with the best available evidence on approaches to management of the patient’s needs so that an appropriate plan of care may be oered.e collection of this information and the determinations based on examination ndings should be comprehensive and accomplished in a stepwise manner. Imaging may consist of, but is not limited to, selected bitewing and/or periapical images of areas where periodontal disease (other than nonspecic gingivitis) can be identied clinically.Not applicablePatient for monitoring of growth and developmentClinical judgment as to need for and type of radiographic images for evaluation and/or monitoring of dentofacial growth and development.Clinical judgment as to need for and type of radiographic images for evaluation and/or monitoring of dentofacial growth and development. It is crucial to understand past experiences to provide optimal care in the future. Inadequate uid intake may lead to chronic dehydration and altered taste perception. Previously limited primarily to endodontic practices, dental microscopes now are being used in some restorative dentistry practices. Corrective procedures include recontouring, polishing, repairing, or replacement of the restoration.One of the main concerns with anterior teeth is esthetics. examination is performed systematically in a clean, dry, illuminated mouth. e manufacturer has recommended threshold scores that represent the presence and extent of a lesion. Kidd EA, Joyston-Bechal S, Beighton D: Diagnosis of secondary caries: a laboratory study. As evidence-based dentistry continues to expand, professional associations will become more active in the development of guidelines to assist dentists and their patients in making informed and appropriate decisions.General ConsiderationsIt is dicult to overstate the importance of gaining comprehensive insight into each patient.
