When to Kill or Remove a Tooth?
Anticipated Release: December 2023
Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD & Valinda Johnston, BS, CDA
Many different philosophies exist on when to do endodontics or remove a tooth. Which ones are the best and most conservative? Should the patient have a say in what to do? Endo is the last resort to salvage a tooth. Tooth removal and implant placement are the last resort to replace a single tooth. Neither can predictably replace a natural tooth over the long term. Gordon shows the most conservative ways to solve the question of tooth viability, including patient education, indirect and direct pulp capping, selecting the best pulp capping materials, when a tooth should receive endo, when it should be removed, and how to restore teeth with minimal remaining tooth structure. Gordon shares the best, easiest, fastest, and most predictable techniques for each procedure. There is nothing equal to a natural tooth! Far too many teeth are removed prematurely. See when and how you can best save them.
