After 10 years and countless patients, few things about teeth surprise me anymore. But sometimes I still see something noteworthy.
With that said, let’s kick off my inaugural edition of What’s Hiding in Your Tooth? These will be a random collection of teeth that surprise even me!
It looked like a BOMB went off underneath this run-of-the-mill silver filling on a lower molar. Cracking, corrosion, and overall decay: I felt like I was digging to China to remove the rottenness from this one.
I expect the worse but this one was … impressive 🙂
Luckily, we fixed it with a same-day custom fit crown with my CAD-CAM technology. Hooray for teeth!
Teeth don’t crumble without something rotting them out from the inside. The ‘breaking’ more appropriately describes the end process as the proverbial ‘straw-that-broke-the-camels-back’.
So this gentleman comes in with a broken tooth. And to be honest this is pretty normal … that’s why Dr. Ross exists.
What was surprising is how photogenic the crack and decay were!
Needless to say, I cleaned it up and put a fresh filling in there. Beau-ti-ful.
