The Hard and Soft Tissue Dilemma of Crown Lengthening and Root Surface Defect Repairs – Ep. 41

Guest: David Wong, D.D.S.

In this episode of Endo Voices, Dr. David Wong defines root defects and explains to us the numerous key factors that are involved in advanced periodontal procedures and what to keep in mind when saving a tooth. We also learn about the technique, parameters and indications involved for crown lengthening. We go in depth to determine the relationship that crown-lengthened teeth have with endodontics and the various restorative work needed to save them with predictability. Tune in to hear Dr. Wong mesmerize us and take a global view of saving teeth in the context of common hard tissue defects, concepts like biologic width, ferrule and crown lengthening. The application contains a feature where you can upload images and measure angles and lengths on the image. The measurement tool is useful when you are discussing cases with your colleagues when you do not have radiographic software available. You can also use your camera to upload and measure images. Tap in and learn about the future of endodontic treatment planning that is now in the palm of your hands.
