Identifying the Issue

In many cases, a simple lack of information can be the root cause for patients avoiding following through with the treatment they need, or choosing a treatment method that may not be the best for them.

This is something that can quickly be fixed by taking a few extra steps to ensure that the patient fully understands their proposed treatment plan.

It is important to then explain:

  • Metal posts are extremely durable, but may post the risk for fracture over time
  • Composite posts face a lower risk for fracture due to their ability to brace high amounts of stress with little friction, but may not prove to be as durable as metal posts
  • Teeth restored with a metal post may experience sensitivity to hot and cold

How Can DentiCalc Help?

The human brain processes information much more efficiently when there is a visual aid present to accompany the information. In fact, 90% of all learning is visual.

When taking this into consideration, it certainly highlights the importance of providing your patient with some sort of visual aid to help them process the information.
