Tough cases don’t have to mean extracted teeth. Many endodontic treatments can save the natural tooth for a lifetime!

The Decision Guide

The AAE Treatment Options for the Compromised Tooth: A Decision Guide is a great reference for general dentists. According to Mark Mensh, D.M.D. from Mays Landing, New Jersey, "The Treatment Options Guide is great because it includes so many examples of successful endodontics and healing teeth."

This guide can serve as a reminder of how to explain more complex cases, and can help you evaluate a variety of conditions using:

  • Case examples with radiographs and clinical photographs
  • Clinical considerations
  • Guidance for successful outcomes based on prognosis

Endodontists & Dentists

Endodontists and dentists are partners in delivering the best in dental patient care. With the help of AAE’s Decision Guide, you can assess all possible endodontic treatment options before recommending the extraction of the natural tooth. You can also consult with an endodontist at Commonwealth Endodontics to develop treatment plans that could save the natural dentition.
