Paradigms in Prosthodontics - management of complex cases
Aims and learning outcomes:
• Revisit classical treatment planning pathways and their rationales for the management of complex cases
• Explore treatment protocols, processes and procedures that maximise clinical survival
• Appreciate the importance of patient centred treatments and restoration selection with a focus on longevity
Throughout his presentation and using examples of clinical cases, Dr Shah will highlight the importance of simplicity in achieving predictable outcomes in the prosthodontic management of complex cases. With a combination of different treatment modalities, he will aim to highlight the importance of a conservative approach in the long-term management of such cases. In addition, he will explore potential pitfalls and problems that can occur and why planning for failure is an essential part of the maintenance of such patients.
