Treatment Options Guide

Tough cases don't have to mean extracted teeth. Many endodontic treatments can save the natural tooth for a lifetime! The AAE's Treatment Options for the Compromised Tooth: A Decision Guide helps you evaluate a variety of conditions using:

  • Case examples with radiographs and clinical photographs
  • Clinical considerations
  • Guidance for successful outcomes based on prognosis

The full-color Guide includes more than 100 images demonstrating successful endodontic treatment in difficult clinical situations. Use the Guide to assess all possible endodontic treatment options before recommending extraction of the natural tooth, and consult with your endodontist partner to develop treatment plans that could save the natural dentition.

Under the ADA's Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct, the dentist should inform the patient of the proposed treatment, and any reasonable alternatives, in a manner that allows the patient to become    involved in treatment decisions. Dentists …[are] obliged to seek consultation, if possible, whenever the welfare of patients will be safeguarded or advanced by utilizing those who have special skills, knowledge, and experience.

This is the exact wording from the ADA Code of Ethics Document.
