Less is More? A Look Down the Rabbit Hole of Conservative Endodontics
The traditional goals of endodontic treatment have focused on the “prevention and treatment of apical periodontitis”. Recent philosophies suggest that a change in focus to “the retention of asymptomatic and functional teeth” is a more appropriate patient focused goal. This lecture will look at how this change in focus has influenced the way that endodontic treatment is carried out, the critical role that new technologies play in this evolution and challenges encountered with this approach.
