  Dentistry is a branch of medical science where maximum biocompatible materials have been used. These materials being expensive causing the overall dental treatment cost at a higher side for the patient when compared with other medical treatments. In the clinical scenario, the dentists have to provide various treatment options including material choices to the patients and then the patient is at the will to choose among the provided options. Usually affording patients opt for the best treatment options whereas, economically backward patients opt for other treatment option or material. Ultimately the cost becomes the major deciding factor for both the doctor and the patient in the dental treatment planning.
