Endodontic treatment of teeth with irreversibly damaged pulp aim at the long-term preservation of the affected tooth. If contraindications are present and / or a patient refuse endodontic treatment, the extraction of the affected tooth is often necessary. The resulting tooth gap might be closed by inserting a dental implant or by placing a fixed dental prosthesis.
Prior studies have shown that patients' decisions in alternative treatment options depend on a variety of factors. Studies on the willingness-to-pay (WTP) are used to compare the monetary value of different therapy procedures.
