ZOMBIE TOOTH

ZOMBIE TOOTH: Ok we haven’t posted for a little while, but we wanted to make sure that it would be something interesting for our audience to look at. We affectionately call this one the “zombie tooth”. Why? Not only does this tooth exhibit a developmental anomaly affecting the anatomy of the tooth, but it is half dead and half alive! Half of this tooth got infected while the other tooth remained vital and normal. Question for our dental friends…did we do the right thing by treating ONLY the infected half of the tooth, or should be have treated the entire tooth? (We have “warrantied” the other half in the event something happens to it)
