In each issue of Inside Dentistry, we’ll test your knowledge with a question often taken from an Inside Dentistry case report or continuing education (CE) course and crafted by a panel of Inside Dentistry’s Editorial Advisory Board members. Submit your best treatment plan and you’ll be entered into a drawing for one year’s worth of CE, courtesy of Inside Dentistry, valued at more than $300!
A 50-year-old patient presented with an existing removable partial denture (RPD), where one of the previously placed crowns on the maxillary right central incisor was broken. Upon examination, it was noted that some of the natural tooth structure had also fractured and separated. It appeared that the remaining tooth structure was insufficient to retain a new crown. The patient was interested in a treatment plan that could be accomplished in one appointment, if possible. Keeping this in mind, the clinician and patient discussed treatment plans that could be completed in a timely manner without compromising the esthetics of the final result.
The Question: What would be your treatment plan for this patient?
Do you know the answer?
Submit your response to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 5, 2013, subject line, “Oral Exam.” Out of all acceptable submissions, one winner will be randomly selected to receive one year’s worth of free Compendium Continuing Education from CDEWorld.com, courtesy of Inside Dentistry.
Thank you to all of those who submitted treatment plans!
Congratulations to our February winner!
