Prosthesis Calamitous Aves

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the characteristics of ?birds? for whom treatment with dental prostheses may be difficult.
  2. Introduce the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as a field guide to the signs and symptoms that would be appropriate for referral for professional psychological evaluation.
  3. Identify instances when dental treatment should not be attempted or should be limited if already begun.

Abstract: 

This presentation will present some recent sightings of ?dental prosthesis birds? in North America.  Some of tools for assessment of psychological conditions that affect patient acceptance and success in dental treatment will be presented.  Perhaps most importantly, this information should reinforce the decision-making processes in those instances when dental treatment should not be attempted or should be limited if already begun.
