Currently the diagnosis and treatment of cracked and fractured teeth is largely symptom based and is often a sad, end stage diagnosis. The fracturing process is one of dentistry’s last great mysteries and is poorly understood. In this engaging and entertaining lecture, you will learn to understand and diagnose pathologic cracks utilizing magnification and other modalities, and treat long before symptoms arise or the tooth becomes unsalvageable. Learn the routine identification of early cracks and  the Clark Class II saucer shaped nonretentive preparation and Fissurotomy Class I that are a significant departure from the G.V. Black preparations that are a leading cause of cracked teeth.  Receive a blueprint for diagnosis and treatment of complete and incomplete fractures ·
