Contemporary Endodontics for Recent Graduates and Refresher Course for Dentists
CE Credits: 3 Hour Lecture | Subject: Endodontics | Recommended for: Dentists | Prerequisite: This lecture is required for Dr. Koch’s afternoon workshop.
This presentation is geared principally toward the recent dental graduate who feels somewhat intimidated by endodontics. Most undergraduate dental schools have such busy curriculums that minimal time is devoted to clinical endodontics. Consequently, this session will be dedicated to such issues as practical diagnosis, the importance of straight-line access, when to refer, how to achieve profound anesthesia, minimization of iatrogenic errors, various instrumentation techniques, and obturation options. This lecture will also help those experienced clinicians who still have questions about an individual technique or concept. This presentation will include a robust Q & A session.
- Able to conceptualize endodontics in a more circumferential manner and have a better comprehension of what well-done endodontics can accomplish for their patient.
- Have a more thorough understanding of diagnosis, instrumentation, and obturation.
- Capable to diagnose and anesthetize “hot teeth.”
