The British Society for Restorative Dentistry and the RSM bring you the Autumn webinars in Restorative Dentistry series.

This third webinar will review some of the clinically applicable research in endodontics and the influence of this on prognosis and treatment pathways. Dr H Lloyd will describe some of the newer techniques in the specialty and also assess whether some research is reliable for clinical use. 

During this webinar you will:

  • Recognise the changes in techniques for the preservation of pulp vitality
  • Describe an index used for assessment of restorability
  • Understand the benefit of CBCT in endodontics
  • Describe some of the ‘new kit’ coming for clinical use

Case discussions will also be featured within this webinar which will illustrate treatments with various success rates. Following this, a discussion will be held on what we can learn from our successes and our failures.
