Prognosis of Nonsurgical Endodontic Treatment 2009

Objectives and Goals

  • List and describe the factors that influence the prognosis of non surgical endodontic treatment.
  • Describe a successful non-surgical endodontic case based on clinical signs, symptoms, radiographs, and length of time, post treatment.
  • State the range of expected prognosis of root canal treatment in "routine" cases.
  • Discuss the recall interval periods required to determine success or failure.
