As we continue our series on food allergies that impact our patients, the next on the list is milk. In this video we will look at materials and products that are contra-indicated with a milk allergy. You may also have patients with a preference to stay away from these if they are vegan.
In this second video about environmental and food allergies, I discuss the importance of knowing if your dental patients are allergic to tree nuts. A product many dentists commonly use may cause a reaction in patients with nut allergies. Also see 1st video in series: Dental Patients and Nickel Allergy

Often we tell dental patients that teeth that have had root canals are brittle. This helps us explain the need for a crown or onlay, but is it really true scientifically? In this video I will answer that question.
The move back to screw-retained dental implant restorations has added new dynamics to anterior cases. Once the abutment and crown are connected at the lab it is difficult to make aesthetic adjustments, and those are costly and time consuming. In this video I discuss my appointment and try-in process to ensure success and mange these logistics.
