Program Track: Interdisciplinary Therapy
Moderator: Nicholas Caplanis
Speakers: George Bruder, Dennis P. Tarnow
The decision to treat or extract a tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the more complex decisions that a practitioner must make. It is a test of the team’s knowledge and ability to reach the ultimate goal of an esthetic and functional restoration that will last for years to come. All this must be done with the patient’s emotional and financial status taken into account. This session will focus on the latest aspects of what we as periodontists should or should not do in the esthetic zone, and how best to treat this difficult area with a multidisciplinary approach.
