Decio A. Barbosa, D.D.S., has been a general dental practitioner for almost forty years, and he knows how difficult it is to extract certain teeth.
He has been noticing that several colleagues dentists cannot remove some teeth and roots, once trying they "break even more the tooth", damaging roots, and sometimes causing larger problems than they set out to fix in the first place.
This illustrated manual to extracting teeth helps you make even complex procedures seem simple. Learn how to:
conduct comprehensive medical evaluations of patients;
choose the right instruments and right techniques;
ensure patients fill out the proper consent forms; and
treat patients in convalescent and nursing home settings.
He also advises dentists to never refer to a procedure as simple because there can always be a surprise you do not expect-and you don't want to be in the embarrassing situation of explaining why something so routine took so much time and effort.
