  • ABSTRACT

    THE ETHICS IN ESTHETICS – TO TREAT OR NOT TO TREAT

    THE STANDARD OF ESTHETIC DENTISTRY HAS REACHED EXCEPTIONALLY

    HIGH LEVELS WITH OVER 60 ACADEMIES AND SOCIETIES DEDICATED TO THE

    FULFILMENT OF ESTHETIC PROTOCOLS. INDEED THERE ARE ACADEMIC

    INSTITUTIONS OFFERING DEGREES IN ESTHETIC DENTISTRY.

    THE ADVENT OF ADHESIVE DENTISTRY AND THE ABILITY TO PROVIDE

    PATIENTS WITH THE THIRD DENTITION THROUGH OSSEOINTEGRATION HAS

    INCREASED THE PROCEDURES AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PRACTITIONER

    RESULTING IN ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS OF OUTSTANDING QUALITY,

    WORLDWIDE. HOWEVER HAVE WE LOST DIRECTION IN TREATMENT

    PLANNING, IN THAT WE INVOLVE TEETH THAT EXHIBIT NO PATHOLOGY BUT

    ARE INVOLVED ONLY FOR THE PURPOSE OF COMPLETING THE RESULT?

    WHAT DRIVES OUR CHOICES? WHAT INFLUENCES PATIENTS IN SEEKING

    TREATMENT?

    THIS PRESENTATION WILL DISCUSS THE IMPORTANCE AND NEED OF

    ESTHETICS IN SOCIETY?

    THE PRESENTATION WILL ILLUSTRATE WITH CLINICAL EXAMPLES THE

    STANDARDS ACHIEVABLE TODAY, COVERING MOST DISICIPLINES AND

    PROCEDURES.

    GUIDELINES WILL BE PROVIDED TO ASSIST THE PROFESSION IN CHOOSING

    ETHICAL TREATMENT PLANS AND NOT OVERTREAT OR OVER PRESCRIBE
