Event Description:

Collaborative Debate.  Speakers: Dr. Wael Garine, Dr. Silvia, Dr. Todd Schoenbaum and Dr. Hooman Zarrinkelk

Throughout your lifetime, some of the most difficult choices you will ever have to make are in deciding whether to let go or to hold on a little longer. As clinicians, we are not immune. Save or extract is undoubtedly a daily dilemma, and while we strive to make clear-cut choices, it is hard not to second guess ourselves in the decision making process. A thorough understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment option will aid in making better decisions.

Side 1: Over the last two decades, dentistry has seen an increase in tooth removal and replacement with implant supported prosthesis. This trend is largely attributable to better predictability of dental implants and the patients’ demand for quick results and immediate gratification.

Side 2: The decision to remove otherwise reasonable teeth is technical as well as philosophical. As clinicians, we are ultimately facilitators of patients’ desires, tasked with treating their current dental condition to help them achieve their desired outcome. Most patients simply want an esthetically pleasing smile as quickly as possible.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to:

• Recognize the clinical indications and benefits of maintaining the natural dentition.
• Understand the potential long-term effects of transitioning patients from natural dentition to dental
