Event Details

    Is every failure following a regular root canal treatment simply due to the inability to perform the best treatment, or do the systemic health and the individual genetic make-up influence the response to endodontic treatment? Should we boost the immune system? Ultrasound Imaging in Endodontics, in addition to being a safe imaging technique, can provide information on the size, tissue characteristics, and vascularity of bone lesions, in a dynamic mode. This aspect seems to play a major role in the development of a preliminary differential diagnosis of bone defects of pathologic origin in the jaws.

    Endorsed and co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Association of Endodontists.
