Diagnosis and Emergency Endo Treatment    Featuring Dr. Martin Trope

Emergency Treatment requires a correct diagnosis and efficient, quick treatment that will not jeopardize the success of the permanent treatment plan. This talk will discuss the diagnostic procedures that will differentiate a reversible from irreversible pulpitis and the different presentations of a necrotic infected pulp. Vital pulp therapy will be discussed both in emergency treatment and as a permanent treatment form. Quick efficient treatment of the non -vital infected tooth will also be described.

The participant should understand

  • The basics of diagnosis
  • The difference in presentation of between reversible, irreversible and symptomatic apical periodontitis
  • Quick and efficient pain control in vital teeth
  • The fundamentals of successful vital pulp therapy
  • Quick and efficient pain control in non-vital teeth
