My Son Needed A Root Canal

As a prosthodontist, two areas that I do not get a lot of exposure are endodontics and paediatric dentistry.  Other than doing deep restorations and post and core, I do not get very close to the canal systems of the patients’ dentition. I refer every single endodontic treatment to my fellow endodontists…including single anterior teeth.  […]

My Mentor Dr. Hussein Zaki

This week, I learned about the passing of one of my great mentors from Pittsburgh.  My mentor, Dr. Hussein Zaki, passed away this month. I have been feeling quite sad.  And I couldn’t help but to reflect on our time together. He had played a such big part in my professional development during my time […]

Giving Hope To Society’s Rejects

When I first learn to make dentures, I felt so sad for those people who have to suffer from losing their full set of teeth.  I thought to myself the least I can do is to learn how to make the most beautiful and the most comfortable set of dentures for them and perhaps I […]

Reflecting on My Dental Teaching Journey

I started going through some pictures of my graduation to remind me of what mindset I was like at that stage in my life.  I found this one picture […]

The Unaesthetic Black Triangle

How to Plan and Execute a Partial Denture Reline and Repair

Many dental colleagues have reached out to me privately where their denture reline has gone wrong.  I decide to document this simple case of denture reline and repair and share the thought process and techniques I used to manage this case successfully.  I hope you find the information here useful.  Please share if you like […]

A Very Difficult Cast RPD….

  With today’s technology and materials, when I see a compromised dentition, It is always easy to think of many treatment possibilities.  Whether it is full mouth clearance and to consider one of the implant supported solutions or to save all teeth and to plan and perform a full mouth reconstruction, there are many ways […]

How I go from here to there…

This is just a case I want to document to share with my colleagues of the clinical steps I actually took to complete this case.  I ended up doing eight porcelain crowns on the six maxillary anterior teeth and two mandibular canines and four composite bondings of the lower anterior teeth.  My thought process was […]
