Secondary Treatment for Asymptomatic Root Canal Treated Teeth: A Cost-effectiveness Analysis

Product not yet rated

When faced with a clinically asymptomatic root canal treated tooth with certain radiographic findings (e.g., underextended or overextended root fillings or persistent periapical lesions), clinicians need to decide between endodontically retreating the tooth before restoration or not retreating it now but possibly later on. The present study compared the cost-effectiveness of both strategies.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the scope and relevance of cost-effectiveness analyses. 
  • Explain the methods used for the performed evaluation and its potential applications. 
  • Discuss the cost-effectiveness of re-treating asymptomatic root-canal treatments.
