As endodontics moves forward, the astute clinician continues to learn new information that builds on an existing database to continue to provide the best treatment to their patients. This all day presentation will reinforce the need for rapid, accurate diagnosis using the most up to date and efficient methodologies, introduce the attendee to the fundamentals of an emerging modern epidemic that is confounding our ability to manage it, and update participants in the most effective ways to disinfect teeth prior to finishing root canal therapy.
By the end of the presentation, the participant should:
• learn how to perform clinical endodontic diagnostic procedures efficiently to develop an accurate measure of the status of the tooth.
• understand the advantages of cone beam CT over 2D radiography and understand the current AAE Guidelines for its use in Endodontics.
• learn the origins and the clinical signs and symptoms of cracked teeth in order to develop a diagnosis and prognosis for the patient who is part of the current epidemic.
• decide between the various new irrigation methodologies to implement thorough canal cleaning and disinfection.
