Module 5 Overview
Diagnosis & Planning
The saying, “Failing to plan, is planning to fail.” could not be more accurate when it comes to removing teeth. Each time you extract a tooth, it is imperative that you plan the procedure before you get started. This module will help you plan for any tooth, in any patient. Your ability to interpret radiographs will be enhanced; you will even begin understanding the physical and psychological characteristics of your patients that will directly impact the difficulty of the extraction at hand.1 CE Hour | 1 Month
