There are many types of root resorption, each with different risks that affect the long term prognosis of the tooth. In this video I will discuss pressure resorption from an adjacent impacted tooth and what to think about when diagnosing these teeth.

Sometimes we suspect that a dental patient has tooth wear or damage from attrition. We may want to help the patient understand what they do with their teeth while sleeping. We also might want to see for ourselves the patterns of wear. If you have not heard of Bruxchecker get ready, as you will want to add this diagnostic material to your clinical supplies.
One of the things dentists worry about with all ceramic restorations is fracture of the restorative material. We spend a lot of time thinking about which material is strongest, prep design to ensure strength and whether to bond or cement. In this video I will discuss how polishing is one of the most important ways to prevent fracture.
Cleaning the larger gingival embrasures around a posterior dental implant can be a challenge for patients. In this video I discuss a really useful and easy to find product called "X Floss" that we recommend for our patients.
We started a conversation about blood pressure cuffs in our office after it seemed there was a trend of unexpected higher BP readings using the convenient digital wrist cuffs. I reached out to my own primary care physician to ask her advice. In this video I will share a few key points I learned in that conversation that should improve your results when
The relationship between occlusal adjustments and TMD symptoms, as well as the protection of teeth and restorations rests on one primary physiologic relationship. In this video I will discuss how posterior tooth contacts impact muscle activity.
One of the most valuable ways to encourage adults to begin their orthodontic treatment is to offer a procedure to reduce the total time they have to wear braces or manage aligners. For the last 5 years or so we have been incorporating a surgically-facilitated ortho technique called "Propel" into our treatment plans.
Are you making sure that all of your dental materials are being stored at the proper temperature? This question came up recently in my office with two dental materials that I thought were very similar, but require different storage temps. In this video we will discuss the impact it has on materials when they are not stored at the proper temperature.
