Endodontic Microsurgery: Past, Present and Future
Topic: Endodontic Surgery
Perhaps the most important development in surgical endodontics in recent years has been the introduction of the surgical operating microscope and development of contemporary microsurgical armamentarium. As these technologies have been adapted there has been an increase in successful clinical outcomes. This presentation will examine the history and development of these technologies with regard to diagnosis and treatment planning, clinical deployment and surgical outcomes. In addition, it will examine some of our current challenges and how we might address them in the future.
Two- to three-hour lecture.
