The Endo-Restorative Interface

At the tomb of the unknown endodontist, there is a plaque that reads, “The endo is not done until the tooth is restored.” Dr. Schwartz will discuss the unique challenges of restoring endodontically treated teeth, how the endodontics affects the restorative outcome and how the restorative treatment affects the endodontic outcome. Dr. Schwartz is an endodontist who restores 98% of the teeth he treats. He will discuss the endodontists’ obligations in the restorative arena and how to ensure the patients’ best interests don’t get lost in the discussions of “who is going to do what”.
