Tooth Resorption: Case Study

The Patients Dilemma

This patient had been seeing his regular dentist for a number of years.

Because the dentist only pointed out the resorptive defect when paid persisted, the patient lost confidence in his current provider.

The patient had sought a second opinion as he felt the resorptive defect should have been addressed sooner.

We may never know if early intervention could have made a difference in the final outcome.
