Perio/Endo lesions; diagnosis and management for the dental team
In clinical practice, oral health professionals are likely to encounter lesions with periodontal and endodontic aetiological components; the so-called ‘perio-endo lesions’. Examination with appropriate investigations is important for the correct diagnosis of these lesions, which enables suitable clinical management in the dental team, that can include referral to a periodontist and/ or an endodontist.
Join us for a refresher on the diagnosis and management of perio/endo lesions with Dr Troy McGowan.
