The purpose of this presentation is to limit the scope of treatment of the endodontically involved pulp and extended periapical lesion with a non-surgical approach. More than 90 percent of all endodontic problems can be treated by this one therapy. For predictable and reproducible success in endodontic therapy, a careful and complete diagnosis must be made on each and every suspected tooth. Learn to avoid mistakes in pathological lesions that might be mistaken for an endodontic lesion: median maxillary cyst, globulomaxillary cyst, hemorrhagic traumatic bone cyst, lateral periodontal cyst, neoplasm or cementoma. Also learn to avoid mistakes between normal anatomic landmarks and endodontic lesions.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn to avoid mistakes between endodontically involved teeth and other pathological lesions.
  • Learn to treat endodontically involved teeth with a non-surgical method. No bacteria, no endodontic problems.
