Maintaining an anterior tooth with an advanced periodontal lesion is a desirable goal for all clinicians. But, what does one do when the tooth is highly questionable in its prognosis? Should traditional regenerative efforts be employed? Are laser-assisted options replacing traditional measures? Or given the high level of success with dental implants, should we abandon saving the tooth? A panel of distinguished thought leaders and clinicians are going to advocate for each of these different approaches. By the end of the session, will you walk away reaffirming your original thoughts, or will these individuals modify the way in which you approach the challenging problem placed before you?
- Discuss the benefits of regenerating the advanced lesion with a traditional regenerative approach.
- List the advantages to replacing the failing anterior tooth with a dental implant.
- Explain why a minimally-invasive approach using a dental laser may be the treatment of choice.
