Treatment Planning Options
Tough cases don’t have to mean extracted teeth—many endodontic treatments can save the natural tooth for a lifetime! The AAE Treatment Options for the Compromised Tooth: A Decision Guide helps you evaluate a variety of conditions using:
- Case examples with radiographs and clinical photographs
- Clinical considerations
- Guidance for successful outcomes based on prognosis
Please use the Guide to assess all possible endodontic treatment options before recommending extraction of the natural tooth and feel free to seek consultation with Dr. Angell to develop treatment plans that could save the natural dentition. Endodontists and dentists are partners in delivering optimal dental patient care.
It has been Dr. Angell’s experience that even some teeth which have previously received endodontic treatment from an endodontist may remain symptomatic. Dr. Angell has found that these teeth can often receive thorough endodontic retreatment which may save the tooth from extraction.
