Apical periodontitis management – A different perspective

This lecture aims to bring an alternative view on the dentist’s perception and management of apical periodontitis.
The classical definition of Endodontology as the science, which prevents and heals apical periodontitis should also be critically assessed from the view point of current knowledge about the epidemiological aspects of pathology, possible interactions between the host defense and the different types of outcomes we might expect after endodontic intervention and the threshold to which it might require an endodontic retreatment (non-surgical and surgical).
The participants should be able to get a proper understanding of the difference between surrogate and direct outcomes and how this influences the treatment protocols which are currently in use.

Learning points:

  • Understand the epidemiological data regarding apical periodontitis
  • Understand the differences between patient centered outcomes / disease centered outcomes/ process based outcomes
  • Be able to adopt proper decision making strategies in the management of apical periodontitis
