Policies and General Information


Course Description

Course Description:

Successful management of the dental patient relies on accurately identifying and managing odontogenic pain and/or pathology. Diagnosis is the first step on the road to success. Although the main diagnostic tools available to us remain unchanged for years, if performed sequentially and correctly, a fairly reliable assessment of whether and where an endodontic intervention is necessary can be obtained.

This seminar will review how to acquire a comprehensive history from the patient and methodically and systematically conduct clinical and radiographic tests in order to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. The physiology of pulpal and periradicular pathosis will be detailed, which will aid in interpreting the chief complaint of the patient and the results of the various objective clinical tests. Lastly, we will review pathologies mimicking endodontic pathosis and odontogenic infection and discuss the applications of CBCT imaging in differential and definite diagnosis and its limitations.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the science behind the pathophysiology of pulpal and periapical disease.
  2. List the steps that help in achieving an accurate endodontic diagnosis?
  3. Ask the patient objective questions to help in the diagnostic process.
  4. Describe sequentially and apply in a systematic way the objective tests available to us in clinic to arrive to a definitive diagnosis.
  5. Identify oral lesions and dental anomalies that may mimic odontogenic infections.
  6. Identify the valuable information that CBCT imaging modality can provide in endodontic diagnosis.
