Slow Orthodontic Extrusion
The role of endodontists in the rehabilitation of oral health of patients does not end with just endodontic diagnosis and treatment. Taking an active role in interdisciplinary treatment planning is critical, especially in the treatment of a compromised tooth. When tooth retention or tooth replacement is needed for periodontally involved teeth, teeth that underwent trauma, cracked teeth, or restoratively compromised teeth in esthetic zones, it is important that an adjunct treatment modality like orthodontic extrusion is considered in the overall treatment plan.
Major topics to be addressed:
Slow orthodontic extrusion is especially useful in some of these scenarios to improve foundational bone for prosthetic replacement of a natural tooth with an implant or to improve the periodontal and restorative prognosis for an endodontically treated tooth.   With the help of a few clinical examples, this presentation discusses slow orthodontic extrusion and its role in interdisciplinary treatment planning in an endodontic practice.
Learning Objectives:
  1.  Define slow orthodontic extrusion, its indications, and contraindications.
  2.  Difference between slow and rapid orthodontic extrusions.
  3.  Clinical examples where slow orthodontic extrusion is used to improve clinical outcomes.
