When a Full Mouth Reconstruction Fails: How, Why & What To Do
Full mouth reconstructions involve a range of dental treatments that are used to restore the function and aesthetics of the mouth. Treatment may include implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures, and are often used to address issues such as missing teeth, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Dr. Sonata will discuss the importance of transparency in full mouth reconstructions, and how failure is a part of the process.
He emphasizes that it is important for dentists to be transparent about their successes and failures, as well as the limitations and potential for failure of the procedures they perform. He also stresses that failure is not the opposite of success, but rather a part of it, and that it is important for patients to understand that all dental procedures will eventually fail and require maintenance or replacement.
He also emphasizes the importance of maintaining open communication with patients throughout the process, including discussing the potential for failure and the need for ongoing maintenance and follow-up care.
He also encourages the audience to continue to educate themselves and stay up to date with the latest techniques and technologies in order to improve the outcomes of their full mouth reconstructions.
Here are some highlights from the discussion:
1. The importance of transparency in dentistry, especially in the context of full mouth reconstructions
2. The normalcy of failure in the field of dentistry and the importance of acknowledging this
3. The need for dental professionals to have a plan in place for when a full mouth reconstruction fails
4. The role of social media in presenting an unrealistic and often misleading portrayal of dental treatments and their outcomes
5. The importance of maintaining a long-term perspective and understanding that all treatments will eventually fail, and the need to plan for this in advance.
