|Credits: 1 CE Hour*|
Carl McManama, DDS: is a Professor in the Department of General Dentistry and course director for several courses at Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine where he has taught since 1976. In addition to his teaching, he has maintained a private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts for the past forty-five years. Dr. McManama has presented over 100 CE courses on topics related to restorative and operative dentistry to all levels of dental audiences.
The long-term success of endodontic treatment is greatly dependent on how well the tooth is restored. This very practical course will address the many critical decisions and the wide array of options involved in the restoration of endodontically treated teeth in 2021. Our goal should be to understand the unique properties of endodontically treated teeth and to carefully choose the most logical combination of restorative materials and procedures to ensure a long and problem-free prognosis.
- Understand the importance of the ferrule and a healthy biologic width and decide when extraction and replacement may be a better option
- Compare options for both core and post materials
- Explain why anterior teeth are very different than posterior teeth. Is a crown always the best option?
- Describe the technique for the placement of a glass fiber post and a composite core
- Determine whether or not a post is indicated
You will receive an additional 3 CE credits for attending the live in-person course at Yankee 2022.
