“Root Amputations: What is possible?"
Traditionally, root amputation procedures were used to salvage or prolong the life of the complex restoration which otherwise needs to be sacrificed. Often times the procedure is employed as an afterthought. Challenging clinical scenarios and past, dated experiences often times shape and limit the practitioner's understanding of what is attainable with root amputations. Actual patient-centered outcomes of these procedures continue to remain unanswered. This case-based presentation will not only analyze the cases treated in the presenter’s private practice setting but also review the clinical management.
Learning Objectives
  1. Understand the planning and precise intervention.
  2. Review of cases treated in the presenter’s private practice setting.
  3. Understand what is possible with root amputation procedures when planned ahead.
