Confronted with a bombed out primary tooth and don’t know which way to turn? You treat mega-adult cases with implants and prostheses but you’re scared of a baby tooth attached to a kid? This workshop allows you to perform pulp therapy on primary molars and improves skills on esthetic and full coverage SSC restorations. Treatment is performed on typodont teeth with pulp chambers for realism.

Sometimes our treatments fail. When that happens we need to extract the primary tooth and maintain space for the erupting permanent tooth. We will review the indications for and types of unilateral and bilateral space maintainers. Practice will be on chairside Gerber band and loop, a lingual holding arch and a space regaining appliance.
