Can You Really Save That (and Why Would You?): Treatment Options for Carious Primary Teeth

Confused on how to treat teeth in children? Don’t they all fall out anyway? And what about the kid they’re attached to? This seminar reviews local anesthesia, pulp therapy, restorations and space maintenance in the primary and early mixed dentitions allowing the practitioner to set parameters for which teeth to save and restore. The attendee will learn to embrace a treatment paradigm that includes function and longevity.  Review treatment and understand risk factors for pulp therapy and aesthetic and functional restorations. Examine methods to determine which space maintainer (even cosmetic ones) to use when extraction is the option.
