Session details

The challenge of saving natural compromised teeth in the era of implant dentistry.The endless potential of endo-restorative treatments The value of the natural tooth has diminished dramatically among many dentists, who no longer see themselves as a dentition-preserving healthcare provider but rather prefer to work with screw and nuts. Even minor concerns about the prognosis of a tooth needing endodontic treatment often lead to extraction followed by implant replacement. This action, under the best circumstances,is probably due to poor knowledge of the true survival rate of endodontically treated teeth but in the worst scenario it has to be considered just business! If a tooth is deemed restorable from a restorative and periodontal aspect, endodontic therapy should be the first treatment option considered. If a tooth has a poor restorative or periodontal prognosis, extraction and implant should be considered. It is important to note that the two treatment alternatives have different aims; endodontic and restorative treatments are provided to treat or prevent apical periodontitis and to give back function, whereas implants are used to replace missing teeth. This lecture will demonstrate the great potential of conservative adhesive approach in many of those clinical cases too often wrongly considered “implant cases”
