He also retains faculty membership at the UCLA Center for Aesthetic Dentistry and the Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology at the USC School of Dentistry.
Dr. White’s presentation will center on…should a tooth be saved through root canal treatment and restoration; be extracted without any tooth replacement; be replaced with a fixed dental prosthesis; or an implant supported single crown?
This key questions starts the patient’s journey to health and function and determines their future trajectory. Clinical factors, which should be considered when determining whether to perform endodontics or extract the tooth and replace it using a dental implant will be identified and weighed. Endodontic treatment and the single tooth dental implant will be compared on the basis of survival rates, clinical complications, economics and psychosocial patient-based factors.
Decision-making based on the best available scientific evidence and clinical practice experience will be presented. It is critical that all risk factors for all potential problems be considered during comprehensive patient assessment and treatment planning so that an optimal plan can result.
