Developing a Patient-Centered Vision for Endodontics
This webinar will be only be available for the LIVE viewing. A recording of this webinar will NOT be posted on Endo On Demand.
Description: Dentistry has witnessed an extensive technological evolution throughout the last couple of decades. Endodontics specifically has incorporated several new technologies and techniques that have moved the field forward. Current innovations in diagnosis, visualization, instrumentation, obturation and surgical techniques have aided in providing better patient care. Is that all? Conventional endodontic workflow and current treatment processes involves - diagnosis, treatment planning and therapeutic interventions. Each of these segments is imperative for the predictable and effective practice of natural tooth preservation. This lecture will discuss some of the future technologies that could possibly leverage modern science to advance diagnosis, preoperative assessments and therapeutic interventions of the future. The purpose will be to measure tissue fluid, preserve dentin structure, biologically modulate tissues and biomechanically engineer tooth function, while entirely supporting efficient clinical practice and keeping the natural tooth healthy for as long as possible.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Describe molecular diagnostics in endodontics
- Discuss Image-based preoperative assessments in endodontics
- Optimize antimicrobial efficacy, strengthening dentin preservation, root
