Perforations occurring during root canal treatment may account for as many as 10% of all failed endodontic cases. Occurrence ranges from 2.3% to 12% and are reported to lower the prognosis of endodontic treatment to 50%. This presentation will discuss using the roadmap on the floor to locate calcified orifices, tricks to use to avoid perforations in different scenarios, and detailed descriptions of access of maxillary and mandibular molars. Causes of perforations in different locations on the tooth, recognizing perforations, and treatment and prognosis of different types of perforations will also be discussed. 

Upon successful completion of this lecture, attendees will learn:

  • Proper access techniques to prevent perforations
  • How to navigate clinical situations that often lead to perforations
  • Recognition and treatment of perforations
  • Prognosis of different types of perforations

MCEU - 1 Hour
