As a dental professional, do you find yourself in a rut of reacting to patients’ dental issues rather than pinpointing the source and preventing harmful conditions from occurring? At Advanced Prosthetics Institute, Dr. Jason C. Campbell and our faculty can help you establish a system-based care approach to reverse issues and prevent their development.
For now, we offer a basic review of the steps you can take to evolve your patient care approach:
- See patients as your partners. No doubt, each patient visits your office with their own wishes and a predetermined level of responsibility. Some patients prefer to leave the whole process in your hands, while others want to be part of the decision making. In either case, it’s important for these patients to have their wishes addressed and to receive an unmitigated exchange of information.
- Understand the source of dental issues. Patients can have a myriad of symptoms from multiple sources, but 90% of all dental problems are caused by the following conditions:
- Biomechanical forces and force distribution issues that severely damage teeth
- Oral and systemic acids that damage and deteriorate the teeth (these conditions often require implants and reconstruction to return to good health)
- Systemic and oral inflammation
- Recognize these issues and intervene sooner. When you have the knowledge and resources to address these issues, you can treat them as routinely as you would tooth decay–and, indeed, they deserve the same level of consideration. A system-based care approach can help you to reverse dental problems, stabilize jaw and facial pain, and provide a structure of routine care for your patients.
Advanced Prosthetics Institute is a learning center developed over the course of time that promotes early intervention and principles that help doctors treat complex issues that often go undiagnosed and untreated. We invite you to learn more about our upcoming biofunction course in Prescott, Arizona, and how it can help you establish a system-based care approach.
