Index.
The task of providing a reliable replacement for anatomic loss falls short of the original biology in both elegance and durability. Although prosthetic replacements are poor substitutes for healthy biology, disease and destruction leave clinicians few alternatives. Teeth and their prosthetic replacement typify this dilemma. The healthy tooth is a thing to be admired – strong, compliant, chemically resistant, and even beautiful. Despite the best efforts of clinicians and technicians, dental restorations have a long history characterized by failure, non-vitality, and a lack of true satisfaction. In the last 100 years, however, there has been success and beauty. These successes have provided important principles and the foundation from which current researchers and clinicians strive to improve the science of anatomic replacement.
Perhaps the greatest shift in restorative treatment ideology is the concept of minimal invasiveness. When preventative and regenerative therapies exist, they should be recommended and encouraged. The protection and regeneration of biological structures should be the goal of every clinician and researcher. Where resection and prosthetic reconstruction are the only possibility, however, the modern clinician should ask, what may remain? To this question, the modern answer emerges: retain all but the diseased state. Comparing the native biological structure with any restoration should affirm that answer, as should the relative lifespan of most restorations.
