Course Description: Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Guidelines for restoring endontically treated teeth are well established; nevertheless the principles behind these guidelines were developed decades ago primarily from in vitro studies or retrospective studies of metallic posts cemented with conventional cements.  New materials and techniques have been introduced for the restoration of pulpless teeth, and there are additional clinical studies in the literature, not only on traditional materials and methods but also on the more novel materials.  This presentation will critically review the latest available evidence on restoring pulpless teeth and suggest practical guidelines for the clinician. 

Part 1: What is the best available evidence?

Learning objectives:

At the completion of this portion of the presentation, the participant will:

• Be familiar with the literature supporting traditional recommendations for restoring pulpless teeth
• Be familiar with the most recent literature related to newer materials and techniques used in the restoration of pulpless teeth
• Have a clear understanding of the advantages, disadvantages, indications and contraindications of materials and techniques for the restoration of pulpless teeth

Part 2: How can we apply the evidence to our clinical practice?

At the completion of this portion of the presentation, the participant will:

• Be able to determine if a severely compromised tooth is worth saving with endodontic therapy
• Be able to critically judge newer materials and techniques for the restoration of pulpless teeth
• Be able to apply traditional principles to the restoration of pulpless teeth.
