In the second edition of Your Dental Solutions Newsletter, I will highlight the list of dental products/materials that, as a restorative specialist, I feel are vitally important to patient care on a daily basis. As clinicians, we all desire to provide patients with efficient predictable outcomes. Having specific products and tools readily available allows us to have consistent and predictable workflows but also, they allow us to adapt to changing and difficult treatment situations. Having predictability in our daily treatment is essential to a successful practice.
In the first edition of “Your Dental Solutions Newsletter” I will highlight a treatment decision that many clinicians face on a regular basis, treating the edentulous maxillary arch. As clinicians, we all desire to provide patients with outcomes that satisfy their treatment goals and improve their quality of life. When treating the challenging edentulous maxillary arch, we have the responsibility to educate patients on the potential outcomes with different prosthetic treatments. Our confidence in those recommendations and outlining the patient’s expectations following treatment will help guide the patient in their decision.
