The Very Dental Podcast Network

We open with a full 11 minutes on baseball so if you just want the dental chat, start the podcast a few minutes in.  

This week we have a short chat on terminal dentition.

What is terminal dentition?  How hard is it to make that call?

Is it harder to make that call when you’ve seen the patient for 10+ years then a new patient?

When do you quit restoring?

What clinical criteria vs. patients health vs. financial considerations go into the decision?

How is your comfort level with dentures, extractions, pre-prosthetic surgery, etc?  Does that factor into your personal choice of whether to recommend dentures vs restorations.

Please join the Very Clinical Facebook group to discuss this episode and much much more!
