Description

This course describes the indications and contraindications, for performing or referring a patient for Apical Surgery. With the correct history, radiographic and clinical evaluation, the decision to perform an Apicoectomy will be weighed against further evaluation, a retreatment option, or extraction. Then a decision is more accurately made as to whether an implant or Fixed Bridge (Fixed Partial Prosthesis), a Removable Prosthesis (Fixed or Transitional Temporary Prosthesis), or doing nothing would be the final treatment plan offered to the patient. The specific workup (checklist) is frequently overlooked, leading to a less than ideal outcome. This course discusses and reviews options when a tooth is ailing or failing. We will describe in detail Periapical Surgery, its history and present state of the art with success rates and include a discussion on each of the following 6 topics within in the field of Implantology and Apicoectomies: Case selection Fiberoptics Magnification Ultrasonic Retropreparation Guided Tissue Regeneration Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) to determine when Apical Surgery is indicated and when it is contraindicated. For a limited time, this USA dentists can view and receive credits for this CE course at no charge due to sponsorship by i-Cat.
