Product not yet rated

CE: 0

Course Description: Management of traumatic dental injuries (TDI) remains a significant clinical challenge affecting health-care providers and patients alike. Falls, accidents and sport-related injuries are the most frequent causes of dental trauma with an estimated prevalence of 30%. Patients can present with a wide variety of injuries ranging from crown or root fractures, to injuries to the supporting periodontal structure, including luxations and avulsions. Treatment of traumatic dental injuries and its sequalae is often complex, time consuming, expensive and requires multidisciplinary approaches such as endodontic and periodontal treatments, surgery, orthodontic movements as well as esthetic coronal restoration. The importance of a multidisciplinary approach will be thoroughly discussed and illustrated using advanced 3D technology for diagnosis and treatment planning.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss how to implement the most recent, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment modalities for traumatic dental injuries (TDI).
  • Explain the importance of developing a multidisciplinary approach for treatment of TDI.
  • Develop a comprehensive treatment plan that includes specific short, mid and long term goals.
