Restoration of Endodontically Treated Teeth
Topic: Endodontic RestorationLearning Objectives:
- Identify the indications for build ups vs. post and cores
- Discuss the importance of ferrule effect
- Describe the advantages/ disadvantages/ indications of different types of posts and build ups
- Describe the ideal parameters for post space preparation, post & core placements
- Discuss the effect of proper tooth isolation and adequate apical root canal fill on the long-term prognosis
When treatment planning the restorative aspects of an endodontically treated tooth, a decision needs to be made regarding what type of coronal restoration (i.e. build up, post and core, cast post and core, full crown coverage) should be chosen. The type of the coronal restoration will have a great effect on the long term prognosis of the root canal treated tooth and may affect the optimum retention of the crown. Proper endodontic/prosthodontic treatment planning is a critical part of the long term success of the endodontic and restorative treatment.
Maximizing the Use of Dental Assistants While Performing Microsurgical Endodontics
Topic: Surgical MicroscopeLearning Objectives:
- Identify proper positioning of doctor and assistants during treatment
- Identify proper placement of armamentarium
- Make optimal use of dental assistants while performing microsurgical endodontics
The use of the surgical microscope in endodontics is now the standard of care. Utilizing our dental auxiliaries/dental assistants effectively while working with the microscope can increase the efficiency and quality of care we provide. Video will be shown as well as a Q & A with course participants.
Predictable Removal of Obstructions and Separated Instruments
Topic: Removal of Canal ObstructionsLearning Objectives:
- Evaluate the anatomic anomalies in the root canal system to consider when utilizing this technique
- Identify the armamentarium required
- Perform the technique for removing obstructions and separated instruments
This course presents a predictable technique for the removal of canal obstructions and separated instruments. The removal of these obstructions in most cases allows for complete debridement and obturation of the root canal system, thus improving the long-term prognosis.
