It’s one thing understanding textbook definitions of restorability and optimal outcomes, and a whole different scenario when there’s a patient sitting in front of you with the hopes of saving a very broken down tooth. In this episode, we dive into the dilemma we’ve all encountered – can we save this tooth?
Join us as we sit down with Dr Michael Mandikos to discuss assessing restorability, how far subgingival is too far subgingival, deep margin elevation and when posts should come into play. We talk about the importance of assessing and managing expectations, and how we go about our decision tree.
