Master Clinicians Series | Clinical Synergy between Endodontics and Implant Dentistry; Where do we Meet?

Friday, October 22, 2021



This webinar is designed to teach the general dentist how to effectively treat complex interdisciplinary cases. Clinical, radiographic, and diagnostic features of several endodontic cases will be presented. The efficiency of modern root canal treatments on healing outcomes, and tooth retention will be discussed as well. Numerous endodontic cases meet implant dentistry. Patients' needs for reduced treatment time introduced the concept of immediate implants which are placed in fresh extraction sockets. The concept of immediate and non-immediate implants and the risk if they are placed in a previously infected site will be reviewed.  




Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Justify the endodontic success using modern root canal treatment techniques
  • Recognize risk factors and negative prognostic indicators which may compromise the endodontic treatment outcomes
  • Will be able to justify and diagnose endodontic-restorative failures which lead to extraction, ridge preservation and subsequent implant placement
  • Will be able to understand when the endodontic treatment can't be performed, and implant rehabilitation is the only treatment
  • Understand when extraction and ridge preservation should be performed before implant placement
  • Justify the placement of immediate implants without compromising the long-term success rate
  • Understand the term “retrograde peri-implantitis” and learn how to successfully manage these cases.
