And Then There Was One...Got over my orals.
It annoys me that after studying thousands of pages of notes (well, it feels that way) they just ask a few questions that seems completely inconsequential compared to everything else I've studied.
Anyway, I think I did okay except the examiner kind of suggested that what I said was a white spot and managed it by remineralizing it was cavitated. Well, not suggested. More like...
Examiner: 23D has cavitation. How would you manage it?
I'm not sure if she was stating it as a fact or as a hypothetical. But surely my patient didn't have a cavity there??? I wasn't even sure if it was worth remineralizing and the demonstrator at that time said it was fine! :S I should have just taken an x-ray!! But aren't canines transilluminatable?! She said they aren't and seemed sort of dubious about my management because I didn't.
However, she said 'Good' at the end. You don't say 'good' if you're going to fail someone. Right?
Had a sleepless night over this and probably will be having more sleepless nights until I know for sure.
Anyway, one more paper to go on Friday. Can't wait.
