The 2022 Spring Scientific Meeting will again be held at One Great George Street, Westminster, London. Having missed both 2020 and 2021 Spring Meetings from our March calendar we hope to bring everyone together again for the start of 2022 with an exciting scientific programme "A Passion for Endodontics", a Table Top Exhibition and an Early Career Group Launch.
British Endodontic Society
Speaker: Dr Marga Ree
Marga Ree, DDS, MSc obtained her degree in dentistry from the University of Amsterdam in 1979 and completed her residency in endodontics in 2001. She is a popular speaker for dental and endodontic conferences, and has given over 250 presentations and hands-on courses in 30 countries all over the world. She is the primary author of many articles published in national and international journals and has contributed to several books on endodontics and restorative dentistry. From 1980 till 2020 she maintained a private practice in Purmerend, which for the last twenty years was dedicated to endodontics. She is presently working at a multidisciplinary dental practice in Amsterdam.
Summary of Presentation
Treatment of young permanent teeth with pulp involvement represents both an endodontic and a restorative challenge. In this presentation, treatment options for non-vital teeth with open apices will be discussed. Although revascularization has been recommended as a promising alternative to the MTA barrier technique, there are still limitations, which might result in an unpredictable outcome. In contrast, there is substantial evidence of the favorable outcome of immature teeth treated with the MTA barrier technique.
Marga Ree has practiced endodontics since 1998 and recently undertook a recall of all her trauma patients, of which she was able to recall 80%. She will compare the apical plug technique with regenerative endodontic procedures and discuss pros and cons of both treatment modalities. A variety of cases with long-term follow-ups will be presented.
