“Cracked Teeth: A Diagnostic Dilemma”
Following the aftermath of what Covid19 had stunned the globe with the dental world has been plagued itself with more cracked and fractured teeth than the profession has ever seen historically. This “cracked tooth pandemic” of its own, lends itself more likely to increased stress and parafunctional habits that have appeared to top the charts in these recent past two years. While this phenomenon is occurring, clinicians are scratching their heads as to how to accurately diagnose each case as well as what type of treatment if any, should proceed. With the rising number of cases observed in this past year alone, the term “Covid Cracked Tooth Syndrome” has been coined. Is this truly a syndrome and does Covid really have anything to do with it? This course is designed to help you define these terms, organize potential treatment modalities, and implement a protocol in your practice that can be utilized on a daily basis.
After completion of this presentation, the participant will:
• Be better able to identify cracked teeth and root fractures based on certain diagnostic criteria
• Better understand the structural and pulp biologic progression of the cracked tooth
• Be better able to interpret and use CBCT imagery for enhanced diagnosis of fractures as well as improved prognosis evaluation
• Identify with and confidently proceed with the proper protocol of treatment related to the cracked tooth
