3.25 (4 votes)

CE Hours: 0

Course Description:

Endodontic success suggests a healthy peri-radicular periodontium while maintaining the tooth in function for the life of the patient.  This session will examine how new techologies if used correctly can provide a root canal space that has minimal microbial load while still maintaining enough strength of the tooth to withstand functional stresses. 

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Define root canal success and success using survivability as the outcome.
  • Describe the biologic and functional requirements for successful endodontics.
  • Describe how both can be achieved using new technologies.
