This course looks at the risks and benefits clinicians may face in performing root canals in-house. It identifies and reviews how to manage some specific complex clinical scenarios.
If a general dentist decides to perform root canals, then he or she need to consider the clinical and practice management pros and cons of doing so. Furthermore, clinical proficiency in endodontics and having the right armamentaria is very important.
One needs to keep in mind which teeth and clinical scenarios may present challenges. These may include calcified and curved roots, and the difficulty in locating MB2 canals. While there are challenges, there are also means available to help manage various complex scenarios.
