Description

Endodontics should no longer be viewed as a lone standing entity. In fact, it should be considered part of an Endo-Restorative Continuum. The dentist who places a post is in the same space as the individual who did the root canal. Even if a tooth is well treated endodontically, its long term success depends upon the quality of the final restoration. This course, will discuss the intimate relationship that exists between endodontics and restorative dentistry. Furthermore, it will offer specific recommendations concerning size and taper of preparations, as well as introducing a new post system that requires no alteration of the root canal space. The ultimate goal for the dental practitioner, is to be able to offer their patients an equally successful option of either placing an implant or performing root canal therapy.

Objectives

Objectives
Gain an appreciation of the success rates for both dental implants and endodontic procedures. Realize that there are indications for both treatment modalities (endodontics & implants) and that the key is to do both procedures well (enhance the long term retention). Realize that endodontics should be considered as part of an Endo-Restorative Continuum, rather than as a lone standing entity. Completely understand that the long term prognosis of an endodontically treated tooth depends upon the quality of the final restoration. Realize and appreciate the differences between a variable taper endodontic preparation and a constant taper one. Recognize the problems inherent with an excessive removal of radicular dentin during an endodontic procedure. Fully understand the rationale behind a constant .04 taper preparation as the preferred shape (when possible) for endodontics. Know the specific indications where a constant .04 taper preparation is strongly encouraged. Fully understand the rationale of a post system that requires no alteration of the root canal space. Recognize that excessive coronal shaping of the radicular dentin can ultimately lead to a reduced prognosis for the long term success of the tooth.
