Endoesthetics & Contemporary Endodontics: Current Theories of the Restoration of Endodontically Treated Teeth


Friday-Saturday, January 25-26, 2019

Despite esthetic challenges from endodontically treated teeth, you can overcome patient dissatisfaction by providing simple endoesthetic procedures in your general practice. However, a command of contemporary diagnostic, esthetic and restorative methods is essential. During this valuable two-day program, you will gain endodontic and restorative updates and will participate in workshops that will improve your confidence and skill in creating endoesthetics. You will also benefit from interaction with supportive endodontic and prosthodontic faculty who will give you practical suggestions—including specific feedback on a difficult endoesthetic case that you will bring from your practice.

 Learn How To

  • Prevent endodontic failures through a command of differential diagnosis and utilization of contemporary materials and techniques
  • Determine when to retreat vs. when to extract and place implants
  • Provide the most effective internal bleaching techniques for your patients
  • Diagnose and treat cracked teeth and vertical root fractures
  • Apply the latest techniques in the restoration of endodontically treated teeth including the use of fiber-reinforced posts, core build- ups and appropriate cements
  • Select the best endoesthetic options for your patients
  • Troubleshoot endoesthetic problems
