  • Root Canal Obturation: Changing Philosophy?

    Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2020

    CE: 0.75

    Root canal obturation is a critical step in non-surgical root canal treatment.  However, the materials and techniques used in obturation have remained relatively stagnant until recently. With the introduction of newer materials and a trend of a more conservative access canal preparation, new opportunities and challenges began to emerge in obturation. This presentation is designed to discuss the emerging obturation concepts, materials and techniques; provide evidence-based clinical guidance for endodontists to meet today’s challenges in root canal obtuation and achieve a more predictable treatment outcome.   

    At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

    • Review the principles, history and the current status of root canal obturation.
    • Discuss the properties and clinical applications of new obturation materials.
    • Review in vitro and clinical evidence on various obturation methods.

  • Periodontal Surgical Pearls for the Endodontist

    Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2020

    CE: 0.75

    Description

    Dental implants are an important evolution in oral rehabilitation. However, many teeth which were once predictably maintained are being extracted. Endodontic surgery is frequently the ideal treatment option for patients desiring to preserve their dentition. With the advent of Targeted Endodontic Microsurgery and other novel surgical techniques, endodontists are performing surgery with greater accuracy and in locations not previously attempted. This session will evaluate anatomic considerations, common periodontal surgical procedures, and multidisciplinary surgical treatment modalities when performing dentoalveolar surgery. Additionally factors impacting the long-term surgical outcomes will be reviewed.

    At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

    • Identify important anatomic and periodontal considerations when performing apical surgery.
    • Describe various multidisciplinary surgical options for preserving teeth and avoiding dental extractions.
    • Formulate surgical treatment plans to address common periodontal conditions.

  • How to Lose a Referral in 10 Ways

    Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2020

    CE: 1

    Description

    Endodontists, by and large, rely on referrals from other practitioners to maintain patient flow. If referral management is done well, it can enhance patient care and minimize patient management problems. If it is not done well, it can result in poor practice performance and the loss of confidence by the local dental community in an endodontic practice. This presentation will review the overall relationship between the GP and the specialist and offer 10 things to avoid so that your relationships with your referrals stay strong.

    At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

    • Explain what it is that general practitioners want and need from their Endodontist.
    • Describe updates on the most effective ways to maintain optimum referral relationships.
    • Avoid the 10 common errors that can drive referrals away from an endodontic practice.

He has also served on the AAE Foundation board of trustees and scientific advisory board, and he became a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics in 1998.

    In addition to his leadership in the AAE, Dr. Roda is an endodontic consultant with the Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners, past-president of the Arizona Dental Association and previously held positions within the American Dental Association. Dr. Roda is a noted speaker on endodontics and has co-authored the chapter on non-surgical retreatment in the current edition of Pathways of the Pulp.

  • The Future of Imaging in Endodontics

    Includes Credits

    Join us for welcome and housekeeping remarks with Drs. Krell, Doyle and Ruparel. 

    CE: 0.75

    Session Description:

    Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has become an indispensable diagnostic imaging tool in clinical endodontics. In particular, high resolution limited field of view 3D imaging volumes of the jaws provide endodontists with greater diagnostic accuracy for tooth and root morphology and both tooth and bone related pathology when compared to regular intraoral digital 2D imaging. Because the use of CBCT imaging provides clinicians with a greater degree of confidence in detection of anatomic variations and pathology, it acts as an important clinical decision support tool in that it provides valuable information on when to treat, how to treat and, just as importantly when not to treat.   CBCT imaging is emerging as the scaffold for upcoming technologies such as 3D printing, dynamic navigation and surgical guides and is being applied to better understand the healing process associated with previously endodontically treated teeth.  The American Association of Endodontists (AAE), in conjunction with the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (AAOMR), have developed and recently updated a position statement on the use CBCT imaging in endodontics providing evidence based clinical practice situations in which 3D imaging can be considered as the preferred imaging modality before, during and after endodontic therapy.  Currently the position statement does not address best practices involving technical issues such as acquisition parameters and image display settings for optimizing image quality and maximizing the diagnostic capabilities of available CBCT units. Using clinical cases, we will demonstrate the effect of task specific enhancement filters and discuss in which clinical scenarios should they be applied and the impact of newly developed realistic 3D rendering for endodontic diagnosis. 

    At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

    • Be familiar with current technical advances in CBCT hardware and software;
    • Understand Contrast Artifacts and how to overcome them
    • Integrate information presented in this course into efforts to improve the diagnostic imaging skills of participants
