Endodontics in a world of implants

Aims:

The aims of this lecture are to explore the association between endodontics and implant based treatment modalities in the ever changing world of ‘evidence based’ patient management

Objetives:

1. To examine the decision making processes behind tooth retention / extraction

2. To examine how and why these decision making processes have changed over the past 15 years

3. To reflect on how our decision making processes can have both a positive and negative impact on the treatment outcome.

Leaning objectives:

At the conclusion of this lecture, delegates should have an understanding of:

1. When to treat and when not to treat and the evidence behind this decision

2. The integration of both treatment modalities to provide predictable treatment outcomes.
