Incisal edge position is often considered the most important factor when treating complex restorative patients, yet the incisal edges can be in a perfect position and the final result can still fail due to unacceptable gingival levels. The emphasis in the Global Diagnosis system is to determine the etiology of the aberrant gingival positions prior to treatment. The power of the system is that the diagnosis leads to the treatment plan. This book explains the Global Diagnosis system and shows how to diagnose and treat patients based on five CORE questions. Subsequent chapters outline treatment options. The final chapter challenges the reader to treatment plan cases based on the five questions and other diagnostic information. Included is a CD with the CORE template, which allows readers to input diagnostic photographs and information to facilitate record keeping.
