Abstract

Clinical conditions like amelogenesis imperfecta require extensive prosthetic rehabilitation that is strenuous to the clinicians and arduous for the patient. But when the results of such extensive treatment are fair to good, then satisfaction is also assured. Most of these cases require full mouth rehabilitation in the form of fixed Prosthodontics ranging from single crowns to fixed partial dentures. Patient mental attitude with will and determination play important role in the final outcome of such massive rehabilitation. This article discusses cases of siblings suffering from the same clinical condition yet having different will and determination. The article also presents ideal qualities that a patient should possess for any extensive medical or dental treatment and the reasons what actually motivates patients to undergo treatment.
