Please post any questions you have I will try to help you as much as I can in my best ability.
Here are the stuff that you will be seeing in your exam:
1)--You will see one question about Prophylaxis:
make sure you know if a pt. is alleregic to Pen what you prescribe instead
2) classification of Patient: Class I, II or II or Iv and V ( as far as systemic disease goes)
3) know Angle classiffication
4) best teeth for complete denture
take care and good luck
So if a pt. is allergic to pen what do u subscribe? And whatis pen?
and what is the classification of patient as far as systemic disease?
what teeth do u use with natural teeth? 0 angle acrylic ?
I have a question regarding two adjacent lesions:
I have a friend who has lesion on #30 M and 29D. I would like to do 29 D for the operative part of my exam. I am not sure about 30 M b/c the lesion does not show very well on the x-ray and the mesial pulpal horn is very high.
My question will be: should i restore #30 M prior to going into the exam?
If I do end up restoring it, I would have to use composite but I would have to restore the mesial proximal contour to a perfect contour so it doesn't screw up my exit angles for 29 DO.
If i do NOT end up restoring it, will I run into the risk of having #29DO rejected? Will they ask me to do #30 M instead?
Thus far the teeth are in good proximal contact.
Thank you so much for your advice!
can u please help me with the previous question?
I would restore M on number 30, because if you are doing D on number 29 and you open the contact, and there is a decay on m on # 30, there is a possibility that the M of number 30 can mess you up.
I am asking about the complete denture , not the partial? and also what kind of teeth in terms of occlusal surface, monoplane or anatomic?acrylic denture teeth
never ever use porcelain with natural teeth
one note, I had two kissing lession, number 13 and 14 in my CRDTS exam, howoever, the lession on number 15 was not obvious on the x-ray. Guess what happend, I tried to work on distal of number 13, I open the contact, here is a big hole on tooth number 14 mesial side? almost got a heart attack.
so if I say something, I don't say because it is my opinion, I say it because it happend to me in the exam. it would be better to restore a tooth that you don't want, then easily prep the tooth that you want w/o worrying about unexpected surprises
Hi, I have a class II 12do and 20 do and on the clinically occlusal surface there is a lesion of caries along the groove and the mesial pit. I am wondering if you would consider still doing this case. Under the x-ray the class II seems to be an ideal case. Please give me your advice as I've read most of your past post and they've been extremely helpful.

Another question regarding the RPD:
what is the rule to occlusal rests? i know their number should be the number of edentulous areas plus 1.
where do we put the occlusal rests? what is the rule to that?
also the clasps, when do we use the I-bar and when do we use thje cicumferential?
iam sorry if i'm asking too many questions. i'm just confused and my exam is on Tuesday.
Ive been following the threads and you've been a really big help. My husband is taking his CalBoard this June. I wonder if you have any Endo reviewers that you can share?
Many thanks !
I will tell the the honest answer; if the void is in the middle of your tooth, not clear x-ray, and etc..you might end up loosing points, however, i have had friends who had 11 mm gutta purcha extended from root apex and they still passed. I hope this makes you feel better. If you have done well in other sections, then your chance of passing is great.Hi all,
Just finished my WREB. My endo sucks. My central incisor has voids in the middle third and apical third ,quite big and my Premolar is ok but didnot have time to properly clean the access as a result of which the radiograph shows guttapercha on the pulp chamber and a little towards the buccal canal.
My final picture for my central incisor is not very good. I just couldn't manage my time.
Rest of my exam was ok, had a modification denied so that is another 3 points
I am so dissipionted . What are my chances people? Do I have any hope at all.
thankyou so much for your detailed answer.The WREB is a clinical exam. Once you are in the process or receive a degree from an US dental school you have to take this exam in order to be recognized as a licensed dentist. Most states require you to have the following for practice:
Dental Degree from US school
WREB/NERB/etc licensing exam
National board scores
Complete Law exam for each state
Transcript from your school.
All the information about the WREB can be found here: www.wreb.org
If you're regularly getting voids in the apical 1/3 of your fill, by definition you're not doing something right. Can you describe your obturation technique? Maybe we can spot the mistakes from your description.I want to know why am I having voids in the lower apical third of my gutta percha even after obturating properly... after I put in the master cone am I supposed to obtur. because I am and wondering if that could be the reason...sometimes I've got a good apical seal and sometimes I don't;;;;
thanks for the answers
