Welcome to What I Wish I Knew by Dental Head Start. This is a podcast where we learn from people that have been there, made the mistakes, learnt the lessons and have developed into the accomplished dental professionals they are today.
It’s your weekly mentoring session.
Hosted by Dr Erica Hwin
If there’s one thing I wish dental school taught me better, perhaps second only to how to luxate properly, it would be how to section a tooth.
Picking up a surgical bur for the very first time can be so daunting. Where do I drill? What do I drill? How far down do I go? In this episode, Dr Cecilia So talks us through the step-by-step process of sectioning a tooth and the landmarks you should hit so that you can do it controlled and predictably every time. So if you want to learn how to save another poor tooth from snapping into root tips that you can’t dig out, then stick around for this episode.And if you haven’t already, check out our previous episode with Dr Cecilia So on TIP #118 Extractions…Pick Your Battles Wisely.
