The best prognosis for root canal treatment is achieved if the apical 3mm of the canal is optimally cleaned while not unnecessarily removing coronal dentin. A correct diagnosis and the blending of new materials and techniques can lead to a healthy apical periodontium and optimal survivability of the tooth. This lecture will cover simple, safe and scientifically proven techniques for treatment that ensure an extremely high success rate and survivability.
This talk will emphasize the biologic requirement for successful endodontics. Strategies using cutting edge instrumentation and root filling technologies will be discussed that promise equally excellent results for vital and non-vital teeth both for prevention and treatment of apical periodontitis and for the long-term survivability of the tooth.
Description of Speaker:
Martin Trope was born in Johannesburg, South Africa where he earned his BDS degree in dentistry in 1976. From 1976 to 1980, he practiced general dentistry and endodontics.

Named in honor of one of the founding fathers of Endodontics, the Freedland Professorship recognizes significant contributions to the specialty.
