The scientific evidence indicates that an inadequate coronal restoration is the primary reason why endodontically treated teeth fail. This evidenced based course will cover the spectrum of treatment protocols required for the successful restoration of the compromised endodontically treated tooth. Participants will learn risk assessment principles necessary to determine the clinical requirements for successful tooth preservation. Step-by-step protocols for post selection, core and post placement and essential tooth preparation technique will be visualized with HD video obtained with a dental microscope.  Innovative workflows will be introduced for integrating endodontic therapy with chairside scanning and milling.


Learning Objectives:


1.   Define restorative diagnostic criteria for treatment planning tooth preservation versus implant options

2.   Understand the when, why and how strategies to simplify placement of posts and core materials

3.   Review preparation protocol and crown material options for compromised endodontically treated teeth to avoid early fractures and failures.

4.   Implement innovative and reduced workflows for integrating endodontic therapy with chairside scanning and milling
