A Restorative-Driven Approach to Endodontic Treatment

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
-Comprehend the concept and need for ferrule as a way to maintain the restored tooth long-term under function
-Recognize how maintaining tooth structure, especially in the cervical region, affects the long-term stability of the tooth
-Determine when and how to restore endodontically treated teeth
-Gain an understanding of conservative endodontic treatment to preserve tooth structure and how it affects the long-term prognosis of a tooth

Abstract

Conserving unaffected tooth structure when performing endodontics, especially in the cervical region of the tooth where loading is concentrated under function, will affect the survivability of that tooth over time. This is why endodontic treatment needs to begin with a determination of how the tooth will be restored. Then, high-quality endodontic treatment can be geared toward preserving important tooth structure in a way that does not compromise the results of restorative treatment. This webinar will examine the benefits of providing endodontic treatment with a restorative focus as a way to improve long-term survival and function of the teeth.
