VITAL PULP THERAPY – CONSERVATIVE RESTORATION OF ENDODONTICALLY TREATED TEETH
Location: Diamond Bar Center | 1600 Grand Ave. | Diamond Bar, CA 91765 | 909.839.7070
VITAL PULP THERAPY Preservation of pulpal vitality is an overlooked objective in endodontics. This presentation will focus on new treatment modalities and materials necessary for predictable outcomes in direct pulp capping and pulpotomy procedures. Topics will include an overview of currently available materials, diagnosis and case selection, caries removal under magnification, the importance of hemorrhage control, techniques for the placement of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and include long-term observation of selected cases.
CONSERVATIVE RESTORATION OF ENDODONTICALLY TREATED TEETH Restoring endodontically treated teeth by preserving natural tooth structure and employing advanced adhesion technology has shown to significantly improve long-term retention rates. Our concepts of posting and coring the root canal treated tooth have dramatically changed in the last decade. This presentation will review a conservative approach to successful posting and coring and explore the elements of failure. In understanding the increased predictability of properly placed adhesive cores, the restoring dentist can change the prognosis and outcome for teeth that were formerly destined to be replaced by the implant. This presentation will include case studies and review available materials and techniques.
