Clinical Management of Multiple Agenesis: Demanding Procedure to Goal

Apr 22, 2017 1:15pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 1:45pm

The purpose of this lecture is to discuss medical procedure of reconstraction of multiple agenesis. The solution could be rather difficult – including setting up an ideal treatment plan and coordinating the whole treatment process – since several dental disciplines take part in the process of the treatment. Therefore, orthodontic therapy often consists of only adjusting the position of pillars and gaps in the place of agenesis, then the prosthetic reconstruction takes place. The age of the patient and other factors are important when planning the final prosthetic reconstruction. The author analyze the process of treatment plan formation on several cases, then possible complications, which can occur during the treatment, together with consequential modifications. Resolving multiple agenesis is thus based on interdisciplinary co-operation of an orthodontist, prosthodontist and implantologist; in some cases an maxillofacial surgeon can be involved. The authors stress the importance of the therapy coordinator who manages individual phases of the treatment, who bears the responsibility for forming the team, as well as for the treatment results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the process of treatment plan formation.
  • Identify the importance of the therapy coordinator.
  • Assess the risks and complication associated with inexact treatment plan, bad coordination and changes of patient wishes.
