Clinicians and researchers have long since sought to define the restorability of compromised teeth, be it from the amount of periodontal support, remaining clinical tooth structure or a multitude of other factors. While the sophistication of dental research has continued to improve over the last several decades, many of the guidelines we follow in judging restorability are based on research lacking by modern standards. This seminar is geared toward reviewing and critically analyzing classic and current literature that can guide us as clinicians to make more intelligent decisions in our treatment planning, as well as allowing us to better inform our patients and referring dentists of the clinical situation.
