Full arch management on Younger patients. Why do we turn an FP1 patient into an FP3 patient?
How do we approach management of full arch cases in younger patients?
RE-wording the question: What can we give the younger patient that maintains/mimics the architecture of the bone and teeth, without having to compromise?
What are the risk factors associated with keeping compromised/carious teeth---what is the likelihood that the restoration will have to be remade?
In the past, I have edentulated many patients, with alveolectomies, that I would now likely would have to think twice about doing, thanks primarily to the collective body of work that the Dental XP family has shown on the forum posts. DENTAL XP is revolutionary, in the real-time sharing of information with like-minded individuals. It has dramatically impacted the way I treatment plan, and has LITERALLY changed my practice. So, thank you, Everyone!!
I have difficulty transitioning a dentate FP1 patient into a FP3 final prosthetic situation, just because the companies tell us to remove bone. Each case is unique.
>>>What approaches would you take in a younger patient, in his 30's, with a high caries risk situation?
Final Prosthetic design?
I am curious to approaches people would take.
