Having spent a number of years educating myself on understanding the human masticatory system, it amazes me how our industry is so far from a model of health. It's true that ceramists can create the most...See more beautiful pathologic restorations I have ever seen, but is that what we are striving for? Shouldn't we educate ourselves to a level where every patient has the option of choosing wellness and not sickness? In my opinion putting in a tooth that has pathologic wear is like giving a patient a liver transplant with a diseased liver.
What have you done to make the patient healthier? NOTHING!
Knowledge is everything you owe it to yourself and to the patient.
