Endodontic Emergencies


Emergencies are unscheduled visits by patients in severe pain, suffering from swelling or after sustaining dental trauma and usually under emotional distress. This course aims to refresh and update your knowledge on diagnosis and management of endodontic emergencies, which will include various areas such as irreversible pulpitis, necrotic pulp emergencies, dental trauma and sodium hypochlorite incident.   

This program will also include an afternoon of hands-on exercises such that clinicians can undertake and review the techniques in pulpotomy and restoration of teeth with crown fractures.

Major Topics

  • Vital pulp and necrotic pulp emergencies
  • Prevention and management of sodium hypochlorite incidents
  • Dental trauma in adults

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the program participants should be able to:

  • diagnose and manage patients with endodontic emergencies
  • evaluate the use of analgesics and antibiotics based on current evidence.
  • diagnose and perform initial management of dental trauma with latest guidelines.
  • perform pulpotomy using calcium hydroxide, different brands of MTA and tricalcium silicate-based cements.
  • evaluate when to refer patients presenting with endodontic emergencies and the referral pathways.
