Parirokh M, Zarifian A, Ghoddusi J - Iran Endod J (2015)

Bottom Line: Indubitably, the treatment plan for each patient is exclusive and "tailor-made" and cannot be used for all patients.Currently, one of the most challenging aspects in dentistry is the choice between extraction and placement of implant (EPI) instead of a complicated root canal treatment (RCT).This mini-review compares RCT to EPI from various aspects to help practitioners in routine decision making.

ABSTRACT
Case selection and treatment plan are important aspects of endodontic treatment. Dentists should organize the treatment plan based on their knowledge, abilities, skills and more importantly the patients' preference and dentition. Indubitably, the treatment plan for each patient is exclusive and "tailor-made" and cannot be used for all patients. Dentists' selfestimation of their abilities opens up treatment options; however, in difficult or complicated cases it is advisable to refer to a specialist. Currently, one of the most challenging aspects in dentistry is the choice between extraction and placement of implant (EPI) instead of a complicated root canal treatment (RCT). Overemphasis on one treatment plan while neglecting other options, not only mislead the dentist but also impose unnecessary charges to the patients. This mini-review compares RCT to EPI from various aspects to help practitioners in routine decision making.

Figure 2: A) The dentist did not consider patient’s willingness to keep her teeth; B) The dentist replaced many teeth that could be saved with several implants. Patient did not follow the treatment and sued the dentist for not giving her appropriate information prior starting the treatment

Mentions: In a study on patients with apical periodontitis, most of the patients tended to keep their teeth with RCT and fixed restoration [14]. Therefore, patient’s tendency should be considered even in high risk cases (Figure 2) [27].
