The Very Dental Podcast Network

You know what sucks?  Well lots of things I guess, but in dentistry one of the many things that sucks is when you put in a 2nd molar crown or MO filling only to see it on recall and the patient is complaining they are packing food around it.   Why does this happen?   

You know what sucks worse?  When you re-do said restoration for free only to see it happen AGAIN.

Why does this happen?

What can you do about it?

Kevin offers some solutions orthodontically.

Zach gives some bad advice out of frustration for incidents where this has happened to him. “Splint early and splint often”.

Has this happened to you? What did you do about it? Did it work?

There is also a thread on this topic that recently came up in the Very Clinical Facebook Page.  Check it out.

A big thank you to Dr. Rod Kurthy! None of this conversation would be possible without the work of Rod, who updated his concept “Walking Forward” in 2019.
