When faced with the question whether a particular treatment is indicated, dentists have to ask themselves to what extent it fits within a health care goal. If it does not, then the indication is usually rejected because it is in conflict with professional standards. Dentists who nevertheless consider such an indication have to bear the responsibility to make clear to the patient not only the general risks of a certain treatment but also the additional risks associated with the hazardous indication.
