“Organized Dentistry”

Organized dentistry encompasses the efforts of ADA members, staff and supporters at the local, state and national levels, known as the tripartite, that all work to positively contribute to the dental profession and to uphold three primary principles:  Advocacy, Education and Service

“Management of Periapical Pathosis”
The purpose of this presentation is to limit scope of treatment of the Endodontically involved pulp and extended periapical lesion – a non-surgical approach.  More than 90 percent of all Endodontic problems can be treated by this one therapy.  For a predictable and reproducible success in Endodontic therapy, a careful and complete diagnosis must be made on each and every suspected tooth.  Learn to avoid errors in pathological lesions that might be mistaken for an endodontic lesion:

  • Median Maxillary Cyst
  • Globulomaxillary Cyst
  • Hemorrhagic Traumatic Bone Cyst
  • Lateral Periodontal Cyst
  • Neoplasm
  • Cementoma
