Cracks, deep, deeper, …deepest understanding
This webinar focuses on the early diagnosis and management of cracks in the posterior dentition. A clinical approach, based on sound biomechanical considerations will be presented. A clear protocol and guidelines will help you to understand the steps needed to offer the best prognosis possible.
The “molar lifecycle” or the “Circle of Death” whereby a small filling can eventually lead to loss of vitality or even extraction of a tooth is well known. Nevertheless, a clear strategy and guidelines on how to prevent this dramatic scenario to develop has not been proposed. Thorough understanding of the bio-mechanical behavior of teeth, both sound and restored, on a macro- and micro-level will allow us to come forward with effective measures to save teeth and be less aggressive in our treatment proposals. A pro-active approach will be proposed, both for vital and non-vital teeth. The importance of early diagnosis, healthy strategy , effective isolation and skillful execution will be evident in this presentation. Keywords are: Essential, Powerful, Interactive, Concise. Simply EPIC.
