The Risks of Cosmetic Dentistry with Dr Elaine Halley

with Dr Elaine Halley
Dr Halley will describe how digital technology and a systematic approach to diagnosis and analysis can ensure that we identify the obvious and the hidden risks before we commit to treatment.

Event Details.

Risk assessment and risk management are two phrases that are used in dentistry and for informed consent we are required to discuss the risks of different treatment options including of doing nothing. This is particularly important when any orthodontic treatment or restorative dentistry is being considered as elective which may be the case with pre-restorative tooth movement prior to veneers or anterior bonding.

Risk can be individual or treatment based. In order to clearly identify risks and communicate these in a manner in which our patients can understand, we must make sure we have performed a thorough analysis of our patients over and above the aesthetic requirements.

Dr Halley will describe how digital technology and a systematic approach to diagnosis and analysis can ensure that we identify the obvious and the hidden risks before we commit to treatment. Case studies will demonstrate how this communication can encourage patients seeking smile improvements to participate in more complex care in order to reduce their risk status and increase the predictability of results.
