The Cracked Tooth Conundrum

Overview

In the era of modern dentistry we are seeing ageing patients retaining a heavily restored dentition for longer. Bruxism is a common outcome due to the ever increasing stresses of a fast paced life. These and many other factors result in cracks forming within teeth. 


The general dental practitioner is often required to diagnose, restore and maintain a tooth or teeth that have been cracked.


This one-day multidisciplinary lecture will discuss the diagnosis and management of this often complex clinical situation as well as outcomes that can be expected and how to best to inform patients.


The lecture will be a case based discussion delivering information relevant to treatment planning and restoration of these teeth that is immediately translatable to a general dental clinical setting.

  • History taking
