Post-treatment endodontic disease and re-treatment – biological and clinical sciences
Friday, 11 Nov
The lectures will cover the critically important subject of root canal re-treatment using a conventional (non-surgical) orthograde approach in order to cure what, to date, has been termed post-treatment endodontic disease that persists or emerges following primary root canal treatment.
The overall aim is to provide a critical review of the essential components of this fascinating, compelling, and complex field within Endodontology, and to provide biological and clinical information across the entire spectrum of the challenges that face dentists on a day-to-day basis.
These challenges include the very important steps of diagnosis and management planning as well as the often technically demanding clinical stages that are required to control canal infection, prevent re-infection, and restore teeth that have already been subjected to various forms of treatment (abuse!).
Thus, the lecture will appeal to those who wish to learn more about the epidemiology of periradicular disease following root canal treatment, those interested in the aetiology of post-treatment disease, as well as those clinicians who need to understand what treatment is required and how to provide it.
