Restoring esthetic and function with prosthodontics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Esthetic and function are important aspects that must be considered in prosthodontic treatment planning. However, a patient's demands and concerns, depending on their priorities, should also be addressed. To create a foundation for a rationalized treatment plan, examination, evaluation, and diagnosis are crucial to achieving a satisfactory outcome that meets the patient's request. Successful therapy also largely depends on good communication and coordination between the clinician, patient, assistants, and technicians. Clinicians' motivation toward their patients plays a vital role, and it must be continuous throughout the treatment and post-treatment periods to ensure that patients gain long-term benefits from oral health education and oral hygiene instruction. Prosthodontic rehabilitation can be achieved with either direct or indirect restorations. In this case report, esthetic and function were restored with fixed prostheses, composite build-ups, and a denture. The clinicians were flexible about executing their treatment in a compromised situation. At the end of the treatment, the prostheses were a trigger for the patient to improve their oral hygiene and created their desire to quit smoking; these are believed to increase the longevity of prostheses and remaining dentition.
