Endodontic Treatment of Traumatic Injuries Part I
You will receive 1 unit(s) of continuing education credit upon successful completion of this course. The registration fee is only $41.00
This course will show clinical cases ranging from the minor injury to an avulsed tooth. Treatment considerations will be discussed for crown infraction, crown fractures of mature and immature teeth, and root fractures.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to do the following:
- Be familiar with a standard classification for injuries to the dental hard tissue and pulp.
- Be able to recognize, diagnose, and treat the various injuries to the dental hard tissues and pulp.
- Understand the kinds of root fractures and the necessary treatment modalities that depend on the location of the fracture.
Not much has changed over the years in the philosophy of the endodontic treatment of crown or crown/root fractures. If the dentin is exposed but not the pulp, we advocate covering the exposed dentinal tubules and then performing a final restoration when time permits. If the pulp is involved, we generally advocate root canal therapy, except in immature teeth. This presentation will show clinical cases ranging from the minor injury to a tooth up to and including a tooth that has been completely avulsed. Treatment considerations will be discussed for crown infraction, crown fractures of mature and immature teeth, and root fractures.
