Should You Maintain or Extract Compromised Teeth?
It is always important to keep an open mind when planning restorative treatment of the anterior dentition. Should you maintain or extract compromised teeth?
In this episode of CDA Oasis Live, Dr. Cecilia Aragon, a prosthodontist from London ON, takes us through a case study involving a young female patient with no significant past medical history who has lost crowns on 11 and 21.
Dr. Aragon walks through the intraoral and radiographic examination and gives an in-depth outline of the treatment options on the table. She addresses the critical choice between extracting and maintaining the teeth, and reveals results of an opinion poll that she conducted with the dental community on Instagram.
