Speaker: Dr. Daniel Pompa
Detailed Course description:
This Course will describe the indications and contraindications, for performing or referring a patient for Apical Surgery vs when to remove a tooth and replace it with an Implant. With the correct history, radiographic and clinical evaluation, the decision to perform an Apicoectomy will be weighed against further evaluation. A Retreatment option, or extraction. Then a decision is more accurately made as to whether an implant or Fixed Bridge (Fixed Partial Prosthesis), a Removable Prosthesis (Fixed or Transitional Temporary Prosthesis), or doing nothing would be the final treatment plan offered to the patient. The specific workup (7 point checklist) is frequently overlooked, leading to a less than ideal outcome. This course discusses and reviews the options when a tooth is ailing or failing.
