Reliable, Simple Treatment of Cracked Teeth

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

What is more difficult to treatment plan than a painless or painful cracked tooth? Is the crack superficial in the enamel only, into the dentin, ending subgingival or supragingival, into the pulp, or splitting the tooth?  Most dentists treat cracked teeth on a routine basis, but proper diagnosis and treatment planning are difficult. Based on his many years of prosthodontic practice, Gordon answers the following: how to prevent cracked teeth, when to let a painless cracked tooth go without restoration, when and how to restore a cracked tooth, when to do endodontics on a cracked tooth, what are the best and most predictable restorations for cracked teeth, when to extract a cracked tooth, expectations for patients when restoring cracked teeth, and more.  You, your staff, and your patients will benefit from the logical, practical, proven information provided in this video.
