SP-5 Thinking Outside the Box: Beyond Our Routine NSRCT, Retx and Root

4.4 (5 votes)

CE Credits: 1.5

Course Description:   This presentation will discuss treatment options that are within the realm of endodontics but that are not routinely performed by specialists. Most endodontic practices, with few exceptions, limit their treatment options to nonsurgical root canal treatments, retreatments and some root-end resection surgeries. Literature review and case presentations on pulp capping, apexogenesis, apexification, revascularization, invasive cervical root resorption repair, autotransplantation, decompression, decoronation and trauma management will be presented. These cases differ from our usual treatments as endodontists and provide a service for our patients. These non-routine cases also provide personal satisfaction as clinicians and are impressive cases to present to referring doctors.  

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • List alternative treatment options to nonsurgical root canal treatments, retreatments and root-end resection surgeries.
  • Describe the alternative procedures and give indications for each.
  • Describe ways to motivate referring doctors and patients to seek treatment with a specialist.
