Cracked Tooth Syndrome & Resorption Endo History and “Through & Through” Management

The show begins with Ruddle & Lisette talking about some highlights from the recently concluded AAE meeting… from Ruddle’s unique perspective. Then, the duo travel back to 1968 to revisit an article by Harold Stanley; has our understanding and management of fractured teeth evolved in the last 55 years? After, Ruddle is at the Board discussing the management of “through & through” resorptions… is surgery sometimes indicated? The show concludes with a return to Demotivators, because we all love an occasional dose of sarcasm, wit, and irony… as well as a little reflection on LEGACY. Wait, what?
