DENTAL TREATMENT PLAN
Dental treatment planning is central to high-quality, transparent, and holistic patient care. The process begins as soon as the patient enters the dental office. A manageable treatment plan doesn't just happen; it's the natural result of carefully considered steps. History taking and clinical examination are two of the most important aspects of the patient evaluation process, and the information from the two processes is so complementary that it is impossible to combine and collate information from the two processes to develop a satisfactory treatment plan. There are a lot of dental plans for treatment, some of which are given below:
The first phase of the treatment plan should be the acute phase, which basically relieves the patient's pain and deals with emergencies and critical problems. Therefore, some problems require instant attention and should be treated on the same day. These are acute problems such as severe toothache, swelling, systemic infections, and facial and jaw trauma.
After the acute phase which is the best treatment, prevention should be addressed. Prevention should be part of almost any treatment plan you create. This should include oral cleanliness instructions, fluoridation, food diaries, and advice. Modern dentistry wants to move from treating cavities all the time to preventing cavities. Prevention is therefore preferred over stabilization treatment. You don't want to start gum treatment or filling if the patient has not yet properly brushed their teeth or is not using the correct toothpaste, as gum treatment or filling may fail.
The next stage is the stabilization stage, which is related in a way to prevention, in the sense that we want to stabilize the dentition to prevent one of our current ailments from getting worse. Sick patients do not need a stabilization phase if the disease is eliminated in any event by the final healing phase. As with openings across the mouth of a person with cavities who need a prosthesis, there is no point in filling them.
In the next section, we will check for dangerous teeth. The teeth should be examined further by removing cavities and evaluating options to use this treatment. Possible options are filling, root canal treatment, and crown or tooth extraction. However, you will only know when you can remove the decay and see the extent of it. They explain all this to the patient and communicate the plan.
Next, we plan to extract the desperate tooth. This could be an impacted root or a grade 3 mobile tooth with more than 90% bone loss and this can be done if proper dental care is provided to the patient.
