Endodontic Pain: Prevention, Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment
Treating patients with similar teeth, comparable medical / dental histories, and using the same clinical approach, may not result in a common outcome. While one patient may experience absolutely no pain the other may have severe pain and swelling. Often the clinician assumes that the problem is due to a procedural error. However, that may not be the complete answer. Pain is affected by a number of well-defined demographic, socio-cultural, psychological and biological variables.
The educational goal of this evidence-based translational presentation is to broaden the participant’s understanding of biological and clinical factors associated with pain from pulp/periapical pathosis and endodontic treatment. This knowledge will enable the clinician to utilize a biologically based pain preventive strategy as well as select appropriate treatment for the patient in pain.
Dr. Paul A. Rosenberg provides dentists with the tools to successfully prevent or manage pain in the endodontic patient. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award at New York University, which is its highest honor for teaching. He served as Professor and Chair of the Department of Endodontics and Post-Graduate Director at NYU College of Dentistry for over 25 years.
Dr. Rosenberg has published extensively in journals and textbooks. His new book, Endodontic Pain: Diagnosis, Causes, Prevention and Treatment, was recently published by Springer.
