Trends in indirect dentistry: 1. Case selection

Geoffrey Bateman, Phillip Tomson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Indirect restorations can provide a conservative, functional and aesthetic method for managing a patient's dentition.These restorations, however, are only as good as the environment in which they are placed. Many restorations, though technically satisfactory, may fail because assessment and subsequent treatment planning has been unsatisfactory. This article presents a philosophy of case selection mindful of factors related to the patient, operator and oral environment. The wrong treatment, however skilfully executed, may invite failure.
