This book provides essential knowledge for creating treatment plans for adult dental patients. Treatment planning strategies are presented to help with balancing the ideal with the practical, with emphasis placed on the central role of the patient — whose needs should drive the treatment planning process. The focus is on planning of treatment, not on the comprehensive details of every treatment modality in dentistry. CD-ROM bound into book presents five cases of varying difficulty with interactive exercises that allow users to plan treatment. What's the Evidence? boxes link clinical decision-making and treatment planning strategies to current research. In Clinical Practice boxes highlight specific clinical situations faced by the general dentist. Review Questions and Suggested Projects, located at the end of each chapter, summarize and reinforce important concepts presented in the book. Key Terms and Glossary highlights the terms that are most important to the reader. Suggested Readings lists included at the end of most chapters provide supplemental resources. Chapter on Treatment Planning for Smokers and Patients with Oral Cancer addresses the dentist's role in managing patients with oral cancer, recognizing oral cancer and differential diagnosis of oral lesions, planning treatment for patients undergoing cancer therapy, and smoking cessation strategies. Chapter on Treatment Planning for the Special Care/Special Needs Patient examines the role of the general dentist in the management of patients with a variety of conditions including physical handicaps, mental handicaps, head trauma, hemophilia, and patients' needs before, during, or after major surgery. Chapter on Treatment Planning for the Alcohol and Substance Abuser discusses the challenges of treating this patient population, as well as how to recognize the problem, delivery of care, scope of treatment, and behavioral/compliance issues. Expanded content on Ethical and Legal Issues in Treatment Planning reflects new accreditation guidelines. Dental Team Focus boxes highlight the relevance of chapter content to the dental team. Ethics Topics boxes emphasize the ethical topics found within each chapter. International Tooth Numbering is listed alongside the U.S. tooth numbers in examples and illustrations.

This is the first book to bring together the key disciplines of restorative dentistry such as periodontics, endodontics, and crown and bridgework in a structured way for the senior undergraduate dental student. The book is primarily aimed at the final year undergraduate student who has to present a patient that they have treated for a reasonable amount of time, and by doing so demonstrate a broad range of treatment provision. The key to a successful presentation case is the planning of the treatment at the beginning. There are certain key elements that students must take into account at that stage, for example, collecting all the relevant information about the case. This book provides all the necessary information that the dental student will need when preparing a final case presentation, taking a step-by-step approach to treatment planning illustrated by case histories, colour photographs and radiographs of patients. Every case has several options in terms of the treatment plan which need to be discussed with the patient in advance so that informed consent is gained and the patient is happy to proceed. The book presents the process of forming the possible options and the illustrated cases show the path taken in different scenarios.

More than 50 cases and 480 images&—intraoral, radiographic, and schematic&—elucidate the most effective approaches to all forms of dental trauma."--Publisher.
