Lecture topic- Failures in endodontics: an epidemiological and clinical analysis
Speaker – Dr Francesca Cerutti – CURRICULUM VITAE

Failure is an unpleasant event that is present in every field of dentistry, even in endodontics. At a first sight, the outcome of the endodontic therapy is high when we consider initial treatment, but it decreases significantly when retreatment is involved. The background, speciality training and equipment of the operator can make a huge difference in the success rate of endodontic treatment, specially in complex cases and in endodontic surgery.

What is considered as “failure” in endodontics? What are the factors influencing the success rate of endodontics? What are the most common causes of failure? What can be done to avoid the most diffused mistakes leading to the failure of the therapy? What should we do when facing a failed treatment?

This lecture will explore what reported in the Literature and apply it to various clinical cases.
