  • 1. Diagnosis and Treatment Planning for Partially Edentulous Patients First Appointment INDIAN DENTAL ACADEMY Leader in continuing dental education
  • 2. Keys to a successful Interview  Dentist’s attitude  Caring  Understanding  Respectful  Phrasing of questions  Open-ended questions WE SHOULD MEET THE MIND OF THE PATIENT BEFORE WE MEET THE MOUTH OF THE PATIENT
  • 3. Health Questionnaire: Diabetes  Decrease resistance to infection  Patients often display reduced salivary output.
  • 4. Health Questionnaire: Arthritis  If it is in TMJs, may produce changes in occlusion  Very rare in TMJ, and if it is in TMJ it is usually a secondary site
  • 5. Health Questionnaire: Parkinson’s Disease  Oral hygiene and handling of dentures will be impaired  Difficult impressions due to excessive quantities of saliva
  • 6. Health Questionnaire: Paget’s Disease  Patients may present enlargement of tuberosities.  Frequent recall program.  Quite rare
  • 7. Health Questionnaire: Acromegaly  Enlargement of the mandible  Frequent exams to evaluate fit and function of removable prosthesis
  • 8. Health Questionnaire: Epilepsy  Removable dentures may be contraindicated if they are small and seizures are frequent and severe: choking  If patient takes phenytoin (common drug to take), make sure that RPD does not irritate gingival tissues.
  • 9. Health Questionnaire: Pemphigus Vulgaris  Common symptoms: oral discomfort and dryness.  Establish smooth and polished borders to reduce soft tissue harm.  Greater follow up is anticipated.
  • 10. Health Questionnaire: Treatment for Cancer  Most common oral complications:  Xerostomia  Irritations  Bacterial and fungal infections  40% of patients who have cancer outside of the mouth have repercussions inside the mouth.
  • 11. Cardiovascular Disease  Require medical consultation:  Acute or recent MI  Angina pectoris  Congestive Heart Failure  Arrhythmia  Hypertension  Take blood pressure as soon as you see patient (180/110 and you shouldn’t see patient)
  • 12. Health Questionnaire: Transmissible Diseases  Hepatitis  TB  Influenza  HIV  Make sure impressions are disinfected
  • 13. Effects of drugs on treatment  Anticoagulants (coumadin, aspirin)  Post-surgical bleeding  Antihypertensive agents  Orthostatic hypotension  Xerostomia if patient is on diuretics  Endocrine Therapy  Xerostomia
  • 14. Structure of the interview  Dental History  How did he/she lose his/her teeth? Caries? Perio?  Gather information about existing dentures.  Old x-rays.
  • 15. Structure of the interview  Diet  Frequent usage of mints, soft drinks, sugar-containing products
  • 16. Structure of the interview  Habits  Bruxism and clenching  Tongue thrusting
  • 17. Structure of the interview  Expectations of treatment, get the chief complaint  Questions from patient
  • 18. Initial Examination  Problems requiring immediate attention  Evaluation of oral hygiene. Explain:  Signs and symptoms of dental disease  Materials and techniques for home care  Patient’s responsibilities (you can only do 50% of the job, the patient has to do the other half, i.e. the OH)
  • 19. Initial Examination  Eval. of caries susceptibility  Oral prophylaxis to clear things up  Radiographs (Pan and FMS)  Diagnostic impressions and casts
  • 20. Second appointment  Facebow transfer  Take centric relation registration  Take protrusive record  Mount casts
  • 21. Centric relation record  Recommended method  Recording CR position  Occlusal vertical dimension
  • 22. Centric relation record: using wax?  We can also use elastomeric registration materials (wax tends to change dimension over time and can become brittle)
  • 23. Centric relation record: Using Record bases  If patient does not have enough teeth to mount lower cast to upper (i.e. no posterior teeth), fabricate record bases.  Wax-up, take relation in centric relation.
  • 24. Setting condylar elements  Protrusive record: with either wax or elastomeric material.  Ask patient to put front teeth edge to edge for practice, then using PVS ask them to repeat.
  • 25. Setting condylar elements Too shallow Correct inclination Too steepThe condylar setting is…
  • 26. Diagnostic Wax-up
  • 27. Definitive Oral Examination: Caries and existing restorations  Countours of potential abutments  Occlusion  Possible extractions.
  • 28. Definitive Oral Examination: pulpal tissues  Possible pulp testing in teeth to be used as abutments that have decay or crowns or extensive work.  Selection of endodontically treated tooth as abutments is NOT contraindicated. Better prognosis with full crown coverage restoration.
  • 29. Definitive Oral Examination: tooth mobility  Unstable occlusion  Tooth in traumatic occlusion  PA abscess  Acute pulpitis  Cracked tooth syndrome
  • 30. Definitive Oral Examination: tooth mobility  Trauma of occlusion  Inflammation of periodontum  Loss of bone support Niether is useful as an abuttment for a partial Useful for an abuttment for an overdenture
  • 31. Definitive Oral Examination  oral mucosa  hard tissues abnormalities  soft tissues abnormalities  space for mandibular major connector
  • 32. Definitive Oral Examination  radiographic evaluation of prospective abutments
  • 33. Evaluation of mounted diagnostic casts  Interarch distance  Occlusal plane  Irregular occlusal plane  Malpositioned occlusal plane
  • 34. Evaluation of mounted diagnostic casts  Malrelation of arches  Tipped or malposed teeth  Occlusion Interferences need to be corrected
  • 35. To treat or not to treat at centric relation….that is the question.  We will construct our prosthesis at CR if:  CR=MI  Absence of posterior tooth contacts (tissue- borne)  Few remaining posterior contacts Otherwise, we will construct our RPD’s at maximum intercuspation position. We will not introduce new interferences by a RPD.
  • 36. Finally….  Diagnostic wax-up  Consultation to other specialties  Development of Treatment plan.
  • 37. ?? $ ?? @ … ? &&! How do I develop a Treatment Plan????
  • 38. Developing a sequenced treatment plan  Phase I:  evaluation,  immediate treatment,  diagnostic mounting, wax-up, partial design,  referral to other specialties (endo, ortho, etc.),  patient education (OHI, etc).
  • 39. Developing a sequenced treatment plan  Phase II:  Removal of caries,  extractions,  perio tx,  occlusal equilibration,  placement of temporary restorations (temporary crowns, etc).
  • 40. Developing a sequenced treatment plan  Phase III (continuation of Phase II):  Pre-prosthetic surgeries,  root canal therapies,  definitive restoration of teeth,  RPD mouth preparation, final impressions, metal try-in, records (if needed).  Phase IV:  Delivery of RPD,  Instruction for patient.  Phase V: Periodic recall, reinforcement of education.
