Endodontic Specialty Symposium
Managing Palatal Surgery and Sinus Perforations in Endodontic Microsurgery
Performing apical surgery has become much more predictable due to the new technology in endodontics, involving the operating microscope, microsurgical instruments, and CBCT technology. This course will cover case selection for endodontic microsurgery, armamentarium, as well as discussing important clinical tips like doctor, patient, and microscope positioning and access to difficult areas, such as palatal surgery and surgery involving the sinuses. Many clinical cases will be shown, utilizing these techniques, as well as a series of cases introducing the concept of selective curettage.
The Massachusetts Association of Endodontists grant has been applied to this course.
Endorsed by the Massachusetts Association of Endodontists.
