Akutbehandling vid tandvärk (45min)

Riktlinjer för akutbehandling vid tandvärk på grund av pulpit och apikal parodontit har tagits fram av svenska Socialstyrelsen. Vid föreläsningen kommer såväl diagnostik som kostnadseffektiv behandling av dessa tillstånd att presenteras och diskuteras utifrån kliniska fall.

Survival of endodontically treated teeth (45min)

In order to avoid extractions and maintain the dentition, endodontic treatment aims to eliminate or prevent an infection within the root canal system. However, endodontic treatment is not always successful. We do know that extraction of root-filled teeth is more common than extractions of non root-filled teeth, hence survival of endodontically treated teeth may be of interest to us dentists, our patients and different stakeholders in the society. We are used to discussing factors related to the more familiar outcome of `healthy periapical tissues´, but how about factors related to `tooth survival´? Tooth survival may be the most relevant outcome measure for the patient, but will it potentially lead to acceptance of poorer endodontic treatments and persistent apical periodontitis?
