Managing Dental Traumas can be an overwhelming experience. One has to juggle the trauma and reassure the emergency patient, all while still seeing the scheduled treatments of the day. This interactive course will take the practitioner on a journey from the time the patient walks into your office to the methodical approach to managing dental trauma. The topic of vital pulp therapy will include direct pulp caps, partial and full pulpotomies, and various materials such as tricalcium silicates. The presentation includes a comprehensive overview of fractures, luxations and avulsions. Vital pulp therapy, apexification and regeneration are additional management methods that will be discussed in detail.
Applying these understanding and techniques will improve a clinician’s self-esteem and knowledge of dental trauma. This will allow for proper diagnosis and timely treatment planning to optimize your outcomes and satisfy the patient’s needs. Description of Speaker:
