Dental Trauma Update – Ep. 07
“In dental trauma, oftentimes doing less is better!” Wise words spoken by Dr. Fabricio Teixeira, chair of endodontics at the University of Iowa.
Listen as he unveils the updated findings and guidelines from the World Congress on Dental Traumatology. This podcast segment provides a fertile platform for discussion on trauma and regeneration. New technology in caries management and vital pulp is woven into the conversation within the context of retaining teeth. Listeners will be invited to journey into the literature and dissect systematic reviews with hopes of understanding the primary reasons cases fail and the nature of failure. How do we manage apical barriers in cases with immature apices? What influences do time and restorative techniques have on long-term outcomes?
The variation in managing teeth subjected to trauma and immature apices can be overwhelming; however, this podcast presents a blueprint and introduces a user-friendly mobile app to help clinicians stay informed on best practices and appropriate treatment.
