Do you often ask this question in your practice...Should I restore this tooth or should I extract?

Difficult questions like these often involve situations such as fractured anterior teeth at the gingival margin. In cases like these it's common to ask; should I do endo and a post and core, or extract and place an implant and what do I need to look at to make an informed decision? Or another common situation is when a patient presents with an existing un-esthetic three-unit anterior FPD; should I replace it, or do an implant and 3 single unit restorations? What needs to be evaluated? What does the literature say about the 5, 10, and 20 year success of FPD’s vs Implants? 

Hosted by Durban Lab & Crosstown Dental Lab, this presentation will focus on these kinds of dilemmas involving tooth retention and restoration, vs removal and replacement. The specific clinical dilemmas covered, in addition to the two listed above, will be teeth with apical root resorption, internal or external resorption, ankylosis, advanced bone loss, horizontal root fractures, and existing failing endodontic treatment. Clinical examples and literature support will be presented for all of the above listed dilemmas. In addition, the interdisciplinary management of deficient alveolar ridges in the esthetic zone will be covered. This will include the treatment options available to manage the deficient ridge, and also how to decide between implant or tooth supported restorations. And finally, a decision tree on predicting the prognosis for anterior implant esthetic success will be presented, as well as a segment on the treatment options and decision process for correcting un-esthetic anterior implants.
