Every dentist faces treatment planning dilemmas every day in practice. As treatment options evolve, it is becoming more and more difficult to assess the merits of each treatment option and to explain the pros and cons of each option to the patient. We are required to be aware of the clinically relevant scientific evidence and we also need to understand our own strengths and weaknesses, as clinicians, and how best to address each patients needs and preferences. This TubulesLive series, with Dr. Daniel Flynn, discusses some cases from the viewpoint of orthograde endodontics, surgical endodontics and implant dentistry. Different approaches will be discussed, and we will try to reach a consensus at the end of the discussion.
