A damaged tooth doesn’t necessarily mean extracting the tooth. In fact, many endodontic treatments can save the tooth and help your patient enjoy their natural teeth for a lifetime. We invite you to download a copy of the AAAE Treatment Options for the Compromised Tooth: A Decision Guide using the link below:

Treatment Guide

This guide can help you evaluate a number of conditions using case examples with radiographs and photographs, clinical considerations, and guidance for successful outcomes based on prognosis.

This guide is an excellent resource. “The Treatment Options Guide is great because it includes so many examples of successful endodontics and healing teeth,” said Mark Mensh, DMD, Mays Landing, N.J. “It’s a good reminder of how to work with my endodontist to save patients’ natural teeth whenever possible, and it makes it easier to explain some of the more difficult cases to my patients.”

We encourage you to use the guide to assess endodontic treatment options before recommending extraction, and to contact Contemporary Endodontics at 708-361-1770 to consult with one of our endodontists in Palos Heights, Illinois, when developing a treatment plan. We want to be your partners in providing optimal dental care to your patients.
