Sources of prosthodontic malpractice | MindMap
Prosthodontic restoration accounts for about two thirds of most dentists’ practice. This includes the delivery of crowns, fixed partial dentures (FPDs), and removable dentures in many cases. The ultimate goal of any prosthodontic treatment is to provide the patient with a quality experience and achieve overall satisfaction with the treatment. Complications, injuries, patient dissatisfaction, or failure can occur. If they develop as a result of negligence or violation of standards of care, they are considered malpractice and can incur ethical and medicolegal consequences.
Malpractice in prosthodontics can occur at any of the three phases that constitute prosthodontic treatment. These are the pre-intervention phase, the intervention phase, and the post-intervention phase.
it’s essential to ensure that proper standards are being maintained, guidelines are being followed, and complications are minimized.
