Partially defective dental restorations might either be treated by complete replacement or by repair of the affected region. Repair restorations are a scientifically proven approach to manage failed restorations, but probably unknown to most patients. Results from this study and findings on the predictors of patients' therapy decisions might improve future patient information documents.
Handling insufficient restorations contributes up to 2/3 of all treatments in dentistry. Formerly, defective restorations were completely removed and replaced. Today, repair restorations are an alternative choice. During repair treatment, only the defective portion of a restoration (instead of the complete restoration) is removed and replaced. By performing repair restorations dental hard tissue can be conserved and the risk of treatment associated complications is reduced.
Recent studies have shown that survival rates of repair restorations are slightly lower compared to replacement fillings. Nevertheless, in certain clinical situations repair restorations are more cost-effective than replacement.
Further studies have shown that patients' decisions differ with regard to a variety of factors. This applies to decisions regarding dental treatments as well. However, patients' decisions between both possible therapy options (repair or replacement) of partially defective restorations are not yet investigated.

Individual's expression of desirability or value of one course of action, outcome, or selection in contrast to others.
The selection or choice of sexual partner in animals. Often this reproductive preference is based on traits in the potential mate, such as coloration, size, or behavioral boldness. If the chosen ones are genetically different from the rejected ones, then NATURAL SELECTION is occurring.
A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups.
