What's a suicide tooth you ask? It's a tooth that has had a number of fillings, a crown or two, a root canal with new decay and/or new root tip abscess. A tooth that has other teeth around it in either good health or without active disease. Is that a condition that warrants another floss or brush lecture? Is it a tooth that needs more dentistry, or is it a tooth that never had the right treatment?

Follow along with Shirley Gutkowski as she talks about how she's doing as a chairside dental hygienist. When you're done you'll find that you have new questions to ask your dentist, dental hygienist, or patient. Share with your facebook, google+, and other social media groups. You'll look really smart if you do.
