3 patient scenarios,
different clinical approaches
Immediate? Fixed? Interdisciplinary?
Taking clinical decisions that best safeguard a patient’s wellbeing is at the core of your everyday work. In general, decisions aren’t always crystal clear or “good” or “bad”; based on a multitude of factors you decide to opt for one approach. But how would others deal with it?
Learn from experienced clinicians how they approach the same patient scenario in different ways and share your own opinion.
3 patient scenarios, Different clinical approaches
For each patient you must consider a multitude of factors to make a treatment decision. With the introduction of modern technologies and the growing evidence base, some of these factors change over time. Immediate or conventional? Fixed or removable? Interdisciplinary?
Based on the same patient scenarios, experienced clinicians present their decision-making processes and explain how they implement their approaches. The cases will cover common indications in implant dentistry: single posterior site, single anterior site, and full-arch rehabilitation.
