Best Practices in Restoring Endodontically Treated Teeth

The evidence is now settled; there is no significant remaining controversy surrounding best practices in restoring endodontically treated teeth (ETT) or which materials are best to use. This eye-opening session focuses exclusively on the clinical application of best evidence in composite post-and-core build-up techniques for the best possible outcomes in restoring ETT.

In some situations, the appropriate management of technically substandard endodontically treated teeth requires surgical procedures to complete intra-canal treatment and fulfill the optimal clinical and biologic objectives or simply drain a swelling or curette an apical or periradicular lesion. There are so many endodontic pathologic problems where a simple elevation of a flap will reveal valuable diagnostic and prognostic information. The course is planned to teach the skills necessary to perform basic flap incision and elevation appropriate for endodontic problems, perform dentoalveolar curettage and simple apicoectomy of overfill and retreated endodontic cases which needs endodontic surgery. The availability of magnification with appropriate surgical loupes, anatomically designed microsurgical instruments will facilitate the surgery and achieved the objectives.

Endodontic post errors, such as; stripping, perforations, crack initiation, and crack propagation are caused by the commercial, invasive prefabricated post drills. The drills are not scientifically standardized and do not correlate with root canal anatomy.
