This course is a continuation of "Endodontic Treatment of Traumatic Injuries Part One." It covers teeth that have been displaced laterally, intruded, extruded, and/or completely avulsed.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to do the following:
- Be familiar with a standard classification for injuries involving the periodontal tissues.
- Recognize and understand the different luxation injuries and treatment techniques for each type.
- Understand the necessary steps in successfully treating a tooth that has been avulsed from the alveolus
Not much has changed over the years in the philosophy of the endodontic treatment of traumatic injuries involving the periodontal structures. The basic concept is to return the traumatized tooth to its original position, stabilize the dentition, and perform root canal therapy if it becomes necessary. This presentation is a continuation of "Endodontic Treatment of Traumatic Injuries Part One" and covers teeth that have been displaced laterally, intruded, extruded and/or are completely avulsed.
