While the trend is certainly to insert more implants, clinicians should be familiar with treatment alternatives, their pros and cons.
In this 3-part definitive series on management of furcated teeth, Dr. Dennis Tarnow describes the modalities necessary to diagnose furcation problems in multi-rooted teeth. Step-by-step, Dennis walks us through every aspect of dental anatomy and furcation management that we need to know for successful treatment planning and fabrication of final prostheses.
No detail is too trivial as we learn about the extent of furcation involvement in both the horizontal and vertical component, root morphology, root resection versus maintaining a furcated tooth, flap management, osseous reshaping, the mesial-buccal root dilemma, vital root amputations, oral hygiene measures, how to sequence complex cases, and so much more. This is a master class by one of the great teachers in dentistry!
