While AAE20 may have been cancelled, our drive to provide Endo On Demand subscribers with fresh, engaging content could not be stopped!

Following the cancellation of the annual meeting, the AAE meetings and continuing education team kicked things into high gear to host the AAE20 Virtual Conference, and we didn't stop there! The AAE has also been hard at work recording and releasing presentations from gracious speakers who would have presented at AAE20.

  • Periodontal Surgical Pearls for the Endodontist

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2020

    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.

  • How to Lose a Referral in 10 Ways

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2020

    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.

  • Root Canal Obturation: Changing Philosophy?

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2020

    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.

  • Welcome & Decoronation and the Endodontist’s Role in the Preservation of Alveolar Bone in Children and Teenagers

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/03/2020

    Replacement resorption and ankylosis are frequently diagnosed following avulsion and severe intrusive luxation. The treatment of ankylosed permanent incisors following dental trauma present a clinical challenge particularly when involve a growing child due to the high risk of infraposition and undevelopment of the alveolar bone. New approaches for the treatment of ankylosed teeth, including decoronation and bone augmentation for the preservation of alveolar ridge prior to the implant-based prosthetic reconstruction will be thoroughly discussed and illustrated.

  • The Future of Imaging in Endodontics

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    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.

Disclosure

All speakers must disclose to the program audience any proprietary, financial or other personal interest of any nature of kind, in any product, service, source and/or company, or in any firm beneficially associated therewith that will be discussed or considered during their presentation. The AAE does not view the existence of these interests or uses as implying bias or decreasing the value to participants. The AAE, along with ADA CERP, feels that this disclosure is important for the participants to form their own judgment about each presentation. Please see each individual speaker's information within a session for disclosure information.

Speakers can select which components of their presentation they would like included on Endo On Demand, and as a result, some courses may only include a handout, audio, audio and handout, or have portions of their presentation omitted. Courses that have only a handout and/or audio do not include the online CE option. Courses with multiple speakers may have some portions omitted from the presentation if not all speakers give permission to have their content posted.
