With DMFT (Decayed, Missing, Filled teeth) index at 4-5, invariably the patient has multiple teeth which are curious or decayed. If the patient or the doctor goes only for treatment in the chief complaint, a great disservice is done to the patient. It is always better to go for full mouth rehabilitation and prevention program. 3 D models allow the doctor to be thorough. Models aid the doctor in convincing the patient.
Pt. with pain in 47. Radiograph including CBCT showed badly periodontal weakening. The 3D model shows good to fair bone height all sides of the tooth. RCF was showed done showing good healing in progress. The model presence changed the prognosis of the case.
A very powerful tool for patient education and understanding the problem.
