|How best to restore an endodontically treated tooth is a question that dentists often face in their practices. It begins with an evaluation of the feasibility and practicality of performing root canal therapy on a given tooth. The desired outcome of a comfortable functioning tooth with good prognosis depends on successful endodontic and restorative procedures and good interaction between the two components.
Many advances have been made in technology, materials and equipment to efficiently perform successful endodontic treatment with more precision and predictable results. The same is true with respect to restoration after endodontics, and innovative approaches using new materials and techniques offer many useful treatment options.
Topics to be discussed:
1. Recognize factors that contribute to a compromised dental condition
2. Evaluate options for treatment based on best evidence
3. Estimate treatment outcomes and evaluate various treatment procedures
4. Strategies for improving compromised teeth
5. Surgical and non-surgical resorption management
6. How to achieve proper pre-endodontic build-up isolation
7. Overview of several non-metallic posts available to restore endodontically treated teeth
8. Latest evidence regarding the laboratory and clinical test results of nonmetallic prefabricated posts
9. Key factors that help avoid clinical failures when using prefabricated tooth colored posts
10. Approaches to avoiding restorative failures in endodontically treated teeth
|Upon Completion of the Course Participants Should Be Able To:
1. Recognize clinical concepts of restoring endodontically treated teeth that will improve treatment outcomes
2. Understand the factors likely to cause clinical failure of endodontically treated teeth
3. Use new strategies, methods and materials to overcome the challenges of pre-endodontic build-up in complex cases
4. Identify clinical situations that will benefit from close treatment collaboration with specialists
5. Appreciate the value of incorporating evidence-based dentistry in the planning and performing dental procedures with the best outcomes
