November 11, 2016
Amirali Zandinejad DDS, MSc
Director, Advanced Education General Dentistry Program, Texas A&M University, Baylor College of Dentistry
This course emphasizes the value of interdisciplinary diagnosis and treatment plan of the endodontically treated tooth. Althought dental implants are a treatment option, not all teeth requiring endodontic therapy may have diminished prognosis. The course will provide the information to select the appropriate sequence and treatment for the endodontically treated tooth. A systematic approach will facilitate treatments for patients whose treatment may require the periodontist or surgical endodontics as well. A clear understanding of the dental materials to be use as well as tooth preparation for various post and core restorations will be discussed. Evidence based long term success of treatment will also be reviewed.
