Variation in the Use of Crowns and Their Alternatives.
Shugars, Daniel A.; And Others
Journal of Dental Education, v61 n1 p22-28 Jan 1997
A study investigated the use and effectiveness of dental crowns and alternative treatments for posterior teeth, using data from insurance claims. Results show older patients more likely to receive crowns, with higher costs. Regional treatment differences were also found. Data raised questions about consistency of treatment recommendations among dentists. Implications for teaching of treatment planning are examined. (Author/MSE)
