FCE4: Different Specialties, Different Approach, Same Goal: Multidisciplinary Approach for External Root Resorption
November 6, 2021 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am EDT
Program Track: Interdisciplinary Therapy
Unravel the mysteries of dental resorptive diseases through the perspective of three different specialties: Periodontics, Orthodontics, and Endodontics. Starting with the difficult and common phenomenon of external resorption that is ever increasing in case reports. This presentation will outline current thoughts on external cervical resorption with respect to the etiological factors and the associated therapy options. Highlighting critical treatment decisions, cases will address when to retain or extract teeth and replace with dental implants. Participants will explore the unfavorable complication of root resorption associated with orthodontic tooth movement including the highest risk of root resorption. Attendees will learn of future developments in early detection of malocclusion and guided approach to tooth eruption that minimizes orthodontic intervention and therefore decrease the risk of root resorption associated with it. Lastly, attendees will an overview of varying types of resorptions, including internal, external inflammatory, replacement, pressure and external cervical resorptive diseases. Upon participation, attendees will be equipped to recognize, diagnose, and manage these complex diseases with confidence.
- Review the etiologic factors, pathogenesis, and differential diagnosis of root resorption of all kinds.
- Investigate the updated multidisciplinary treatment approaches for root resorption
- Discuss orthodontic considerations such as types of orthodontic tooth movement with highest risk of root resorption and guided approach to tooth eruption.
- Discuss the multidisciplinary role in identification and management of root resorption.
