Restoration of Endodontically Treated Teeth: $1591 (online + hands-on) / $530 (online component only)
This course aims to guide practitioners through the clinical decisions to restore endodontically-treated teeth using contemporary materials and using either an analogue or a digital workflow. This will have a direct impact on your clinical success and survival rates. Endodontic therapy is carried out regularly in everyday dentistry, but a satisfactory restoration after the completion of the root canal treatment is not only mandatory, but also critical to the overall success of the treatment. A pulpless tooth requires a restoration that conserves and protects the remaining tooth structure. Although there are a variety of materials and techniques described for restoring pulpless teeth, the prognosis of these teeth relies mainly on the understanding of biomechanical principles.
The course is structured in two parts:
A series of online lectures covering post material selection, pattern-resin post preparation, partial posterior indirect restorations of different materials and designs as well as adequate cementation techniques.
The online lectures will be structured in modules, each with an assessment at the end.
Consists of a full day of face-to-face hands-on preclinical component to apply all the principles learnt online. Participants pre-clinical work will be assessed by the presenters and direct feedback provided.
