4 Case Selection and Treatment Planning Paul A. Rosenberg The process of case selection and treatment planning begins after a clinician has diagnosed an endodontic problem. The clinician must determine if the patient's oral health needs are best met by providing endodontic treatment and maintaining the tooth or by advising extraction. This question is more complex than ever before because of the wide array of treatment modalities. The use of ultrasonics and microscopy as well as new materials has made it possible to predictably retain teeth that previously could not have been treated. Even teeth that have failed initial endodontic treatment can often be successfully retreated using nonsurgical or surgical procedures. Increased knowledge about the importance of anxiety control, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) premedication, profound local anesthesia, occlusion, and biologically based clinical procedures enables clinicians to complete endodontic procedures in the absence of intraoperative or postoperative pain (see Chapters 19 and 20 for more information on pain control and anesthesia). Thus preoperative pain should not influence treatment selection because modern techniques for profound local anesthesia can provide complete comfort for the great majority of patients receiving endodontic treatment (see Chapter 19, "Local Anesthesia in Endodontics," for details). page 80page 81Add to lightbox Figure 4-1 Sample medical consultation letter.Qu
