Live Webinar | New Course

Are you prepared to render treatment based on contemporary guidelines for traumatic dental injuries? How can you improve the lifelong prognosis of traumatized teeth? This live webinar will provide a case-based framework to triage and successfully manage the care necessary to optimize outcomes for young children and adolescents. The course will also provide the biologic basis and clinical technique for management of specific dental injuries, such as crown fractures, luxation injuries and avulsion injuries. You will receive guidance on projecting prognosis and outcomes of traumatic dental injuries in pediatric patients.

Through cases with clinical images and radiographs, the intricacies of diagnosis, classification and treatment/management will be highlighted. Subtle but critical differences in management based on the stage of root development will be discussed. The course will be a live, interactive webinar, inviting audience participation via questions and answers after each topic covered. The guidelines set forth by the International Association of Dental Traumatology in 2020 will be utilized.
