Restorative Dentistry Featured in ADA Journal

In the July 2000 issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), Dr. Okuda’s restorative dentistry article, titled “Using a modified subopaquing technique to treat highly discolored dentition” was featured. This landmark article discussed and illustrated the corrective treatment for patients with extensive tooth staining (darkened teeth) due to trauma, decay, medication-related (tetracycline, etc.), or birth-related causes. This article teaches dentists how to recreate a “natural” esthetic end result using Dr. Okuda’s conservative treatment. JADA is the scientific publication for the 145,000 member dentists of the American Dental Association.
