Couldn’t help but notice this #amalgam looks a little like the bat signal. Do you agree? or is dentistry making me crazy already?

#DIY #dentistry isn’t always the best option. Cases like this where the patient obtained #SmileDirect #ortho illustrate the importance of obtaining care through the appropriate channels, even if it #costs a little more. I would be willing to bet this patient would do it differently if she could start over.

Had an amazing week in Fayetteville, NC learning from the leaders in Dental Sleep Medicine. Unfortunately it was cut a little short by #florence but we were still able to complete everything. Excellent lectures and clinical exercises from Dr. John Remmers, Dr. Jamison Spencer, the president of the #AADSM Dr. Nancy Addy and the staff at Ft Bragg. There are some awesome things happening in the field of sleep medicine and I’m looking forward to being a part of its bright future. Of course, dinner with the corps chief was a nice touch.

A 25-y/o male patient strolls in today for a D0120 and a CC: “my baby tooth UL hurts.” Patient has retained J, K, T (K & T heavily restored, J caries likely into the pulp). Since the image is inconclusive, assume the roots of J are as nonexistent as K/T. #31 occlusal caries and a 7mm distal pseudopocket with congenitally missing mandibular 3rds.
My proposed plan:
Single surgery with OMFS: Ext #1, J, 16, K, T with immediate implant placement #13, 20, 29 (Essix retainers during healing phase for space maintenance); #31-O and same-day distal wedge/osseous recontouring to eliminate pocketing.

I’m curious to see what other TXPs are out there — ready, go!

Emergence profile may need a little recontouring but overall, it’ll work. Do you make diagnostic wax-ups?

The door to my office was made for a dental clinic. Three #molars with #calcified #canals welcome me every morning.

Dental colleagues: how would you restore #20? Assume ortho is not an option and finances are not a concern.
Tooth #20 was prepped and provisional crown was lost for extended period of time resulting in space closure.

21-y/o male presented with sinus tract from an #asymptomatic, very necrotic #4 with a #WIDE open, lateral #apex. That’s what an 80.06 cone looks like that had the terminal 2.5mm cut off of it (equating to a suspected ~1.2mm apical opening that needed sealing). We’ll see how he heals up... perhaps next step is an #apicoectomy |
