GLENDALE, Ariz., Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients think that dental restorations such as crowns and bridges last forever, but in reality they don't. Dental treatments actually have a predictable lifespan. It is based on many factors, some within the dentist's control and some not. The lifetime of a crown, bridge or dental implant may be shortened due to the patient's home care, biting forces, diet and even genetics.
"Dentists, especially those new to the profession, lose sleep and stomach lining worrying about the failure of their patient's dental crowns and other restorations," says Dr. Brady. "I hope to help them reduce failures with my presentation 'Avoiding Restorative Failure' at the New Dentist's Conference during the ADA Annual Meeting."
Dr. Brady's program helps dentists increase the life of their patient's restorations by:
- Understanding how to predict potential failures before treatment is planned
- Reducing the chance of failure by uncovering the patient's unique risk factors
- Helping dentists educate their patients so they can manage these risk factors effectively
The New Dentist Conference is part of the ADA Annual Meeting being held Nov. 5- 10, 2015 in Washington, DC. Visit their website at http://www.ada.org/en/meeting.
