I Hate Cracked Teeth with Kreena Patel – PDP028

I love Dentistry…but I FREAKING HATE CRACKS.

CRACKS = DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS with our patients.

I am joined by Endo Queen Dr. Kreena Patel – @kreenaspecialistendodontics to discuss all things cracks to make our decision making process clearer in General Practice!

We discuss:

  • How do you manage situations where pain is difficult to localise and you’re in a diagnostic dilemma?
  • What if you just CANNOT find out which tooth it is? What should you say to the patient? 🤔
  • What % chance of success should you give to the patient based on clinical findings?
  • Can you use a cotton wool roll as an alternative to a tooth slooth?
  • SHOULD YOU CHASE A CRACK???
  • When you open a molar access cavity and trace a crack – where is the cut off for the extent of the crack before it is deemed not worth saving?
  • Any advice for GDPs dealing with CTS?
  • What is the evidence for RCT in patients with cracks?
  • What is the consent conversation you have regarding cracks?

And right at the start we touch on:

  • Impact of CBCT in Endodontics
  • Can you spot a crack on a CBCT?
