Pieces of the Diagnostic Puzzle – They’re All Important
Topic: Differential DiagnosisLearning Objectives:
- Discuss how the utilization of a thorough, systematic, and consistent diagnostic process can contribute to successful treatment outcomes.
- Identify how information gathered during an endodontic examination can contribute to positive results relative to comprehensive, interdisciplinary dental treatment for a patient.
- Describe types of cases that, although presenting initially as puzzling, can be clarified by utilizing a wider spectrum of available diagnostic tools and procedures.
The diagnostic phase of endodontic treatment can be straightforward, complex, frustrating, or puzzling. This session will review various aspects of the process and why each should be considered important. Clinical cases will be utilized to highlight how the collection of adequate and accurate information can help paint a clearer picture, leading to endodontic treatment with successful outcomes.
