Image-Guided Endodontics and Strategic Dentin Preservation

Cost: $19.00
ADA Credits: 1

Traditional endodontic dogma, the associated legacy concepts, technique end-points and attendant predictors and measures of outcome have misdirected the specialty of endodontics for decades. A new framework for decision-making that is based on a modern understanding of the biology and disease vs. disease-that-matters will be introduced. Alternative treatment protocols that reflect this new understanding yet are respectful to the anatomic and structural limitations will be developed in a case-based format.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

• Identify key zones of mutual interest to the endodontic specialist and restorative dentist during endodontic access and preparation.

• Create ideal access while preserving key cervical tooth structure.

• Apply modern instrumentation techniques that preserve the pulp horn and pericervical zones of dentin to conserve the inherent strength of the tooth.
