Technique Tips:  The Use of an Option Grid to Present the Treatment Modalities for Replacing Missing Teeth in Anterior Regions

Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings


Abstract: Shared decision-making is an important aspect of Dentistry which is required in everyday practice. When discussing the options for replacing missing anterior teeth, dentists may give vague explanations without providing a clear overall view of the modalities available. An option grid, utilizing statistics obtained from critically appraised literature, is a useful tool in presenting this information to patients.
