Treatment planning and therapeutical options

Author Christoph Hämmerle

When planning a treatment for a given patient, it is of paramount importance to understand the specific personal wishes of the patient and to plan accordingly. Generally speaking, patients desire to be in good health, to have adequate function for mastication and speaking, and pleasing esthetics. In order to reach the patient’s desires – in particular in complex situations – a structured approach to treatment planning and to execution of therapy is necessary. This module explains and guides you through such a structured approach.
