Surgical endodontics: The Smart Choice
Considerable advancements have been made in the recent years in endodontic surgery. The operating microscope is now routinely used and new ultrasonic tips have been developed. These tips have radically changed our approach and enable us to perform procedures that are similar to conventional endodontics. Many teeth that are replaced by implant could be preserved with this technique. The presentation will evaluate the current literature on the outcome of endodontic surgery and will focus on the use of the new ultrasonic instruments with a lot of clinical examples.
At the end of the presentation, participants should be able to:
- evaluate the potential and the outcome of endodontic surgery
- understand the use of the new ultrasonic instrument
- describe the concept of total surgical retreatment.
