The question of whether or not to restore a tooth is in many cases the subject of debate. Often clinicians face the dilemma of whether to restore the tooth as is, or possibly have it endodontically treated, or to ultimately extract it and place a dental implant.

In this presentation, Dr. Baaj reviews some of the factors that come into play in deciding on the appropriate treatment path. This brief presentation discusses some of the clinical evaluations, keeping in mind that in difficult cases, it is always wise to seek a second opinion or refer cases to the appropriate specialist.
