Discover a wholistic approach to the prevention, diagnosis, management, and prognosis of teeth with cracks.
Every day we are faced with the dilemma of cracks in teeth. This lecture will summarise a wholistic approach to the prevention, diagnosis, management, and prognosis of teeth with cracks from an endodontic and restorative perspective.
The traditional goals of endodontic therapy have focused on the ‘prevention and treatment of apical periodontitis’. Recent philosophies suggest that a change in focus to ‘the retention of asymptomatic and functional teeth’ is a more appropriate patient focused goal. This lecture will look at how this change in focus has influenced the way that endodontic therapy is carried out and the critical role that new technologies such as CBCT, ultrasonics and heat-treated instruments have played in this evolution.
