Endodontic Case Assessment

Advances in understanding endodontic pathosis, the importance of aseptic technique, innovative microsurgical techniques and microscope technology have all led to a more predictable healing response for endodontic treatment. The AAE has developed practical tools to help endodontists with case assessment:

  • Endodontic Case Difficulty Assessment Article
