Fractures in Endodontically Treated Teeth: Common Risk Factors and Strategies for Avoidance… Dr Anil Kishen
$13.00 – $25.00
This lecture will offer a biomechanical foundation to explain the causes and steps to prevent clinically relevant fractures in root-filled teeth.
Fractures of endodontically treated teeth are not an uncommon occurrence in clinical practice. Iatrogenic and non-iatrogenic risk factors have been associated with the loss of mechanical integrity in restored root-filled teeth. This lecture will offer a biomechanical foundation to explain the causes and steps to prevent clinically relevant fractures in root-filled teeth.
• Will learn the biomechanical response of endodontically treated teeth to forces
• Will be able to understand the causes and role of risk factors for fractures in endodontically treated teeth
