    CE Hours: 1.5

    Description: Endodontic treatment by general dentists is expected to meet minimum standards as set out in guidelines which The American Association of Endodontists has developed and published as "Standards of Practice."

    General dentists who have graduated from CODA-accredited institutions and are licensed to practice in the United States must have basic knowledge and experience regarding endodontic philosophy and treatment. In recognition of the variables which exist in dental education, treatment in the practice of endodontics by general dentists is expected to be within an acceptable range and to meet minimum standards as determined by practicing endodontists.

    How should the AAE go about creating a context for diagnosis and skill levels that can provide a standard for all practitioners who undertake the responsibility to diagnose, to plan treatment and to administer endodontic care to their patients? How can the AAE address the epidemic of poor care and outcomes that every endodontist witnesses on a recurring basis? What is our responsibility as advocates for the highest standards of endodontic treatment? Where do we stand legally in our advocacy?

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Discuss the legal issues that the AAE and state endodontic societies need to recognize in opposing substandard endodontic care
    • Examine how Endodontists can be proactive in opposing substandard care with minimal legal risk
    • Recognize how the AAE can support quality and competence in endodontic education and focus our message on the audiences that matter most-- patients, insurers, DSO’s, and courts

    CE Hours: 1.5

    Description: In a majority of specialty practices, social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) are commonly misused, underutilized, or worse, not adopted at all. Even more distressing are the numerous companies trying to sell you on how they can help manage it all for you. Let's shift our social media mindset and move beyond selfies, generic content, and viral-video noise. Can we instead utilize social media platforms to connect and network with colleagues, gain new referral sources, educate patients, increase patient acceptance, address mis/disinformation, and enhance our clinical treatment? I believe it is possible. Let me show you how

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Utilize social media in order to network with dental colleagues, educate existing patients,increase treatment plan acceptance, and bring new patients to your practice
    • Use social media to enhance your clinical work and stay current on the latest dental materials, techniques, and technologies
    • Explain what type of content you should be posting, and how to post it properly, maximizing user interaction and minimizing risk

    CE Hours: 1.5

    Description: What is the silent killer of most Endodontic treatment? Coronal leakage. Endontically treated teeth are the most structurally compromised and susceptible to fracture and decay. Common restorative techniques fail to regain the biomechanics and structural integrity lost during treatment cycles. Crowns and fillings allow for microleakage and reactivation of decay & reinfection of root canal treated teeth. Can additional tooth structure be preserved? Can microgaps under restorations be prevented? Can vital teeth with deep carious lesions be predictably sealed to maintain pulpal health? Yes, through stress reduction & Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry. Biomimetic dentistry uses the intact tooth as the ultimate guide in reconstruction. Combining tooth conservation, stress reduction and advanced adhesive dentistry solves the coronal conundrum of gaps, cracks and leakage.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Obtain complete caries removal in the Peripheral Seal Zone and read the Hierarchy of Bondability in the Central Stop Zone in deep carious lesions
    • Explain polymerization dynamics and C-Factor control to maintain coronal seal, through Layering, Fiber placement, and curing protocols
    • Describe the Bio-Rim Preservation and regaining structural integrity through a non mechanically retained approach

    CE Hours: 0.75

    Description:  Odontogenic sinusitis (ODS) is a fascinating and unique form of infectious sinus disease, stemming from infectious maxillary dental pathology or following certain dental treatments. ODS is more common than historically thought, but is still frequently missed by each of the provider types critical to diagnosing and managing the condition (radiologists, dentists and dental specialists, and otolaryngologists). ODS has been significantly underrepresented in national and international sinusitis guidelines, but major strides have been made over the last 5 years with improved publication volumes and evidence levels, leading to national and international consensus statements on diagnosing and treating ODS. This presentation will present the highest evidence levels to date on ODS, covering all aspects of the condition from epidemiology to pathophysiology, to optimal diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. The goals are to increase awareness and clinicians’ diagnostic suspicion of ODS, and to promote the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration when managing these patients.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Define odontogenic sinusitis (ODS)
    • Diagnose odontogenic sinusitis (ODS)
    • Treat odontogenic sinusitis (ODS)

    CE Hours: 1.0

    Description: The pathological extension of periapical infection into the maxillary sinuses is often overlooked in clinical medical and dental practice, with its sequelae often misdiagnosed as rhinogenic sinusitis. This lecture explains and illustrates the similarities, distinguishing differences, and frequent inter-relationship between endodontic disease and paranasal sinus infections. The associated clinical and radiographic findings of maxillary sinusitis of endodontic origin (MSEO) are explained using many real-world clinical case examples with an update on the current literature. Emphasis is placed on the importance of CBCT imaging, magnification, proper terminology, and clinical expertise for rendering both non-surgical and surgical endodontic treatment when indicated. The goal is to help practitioners distinguish rhinosinusitis from odontogenic sinusitis, and specifically MSEO, in an effort to improve the health of patients through accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and improved communication between endodontists and ENT specialists.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Describe the clinical symptoms and radiograph similarities and differences between rhinogenic sinusitis and the various forms of odontogenic sinusitis.
    • Describe the progression and pathogenic effects of apical periodontitis on the sinus tissues and the associated clinical and radiographic findings of maxillary sinusitis of endodontic origin (MSEO) using current terminology.
    • Describe the importance of proper endodontic management for successful treatment of MSEO, recognizing the complexity of maxillary posterior canal morphology and the unique non-surgical and surgical challenges present with maxillary posterior teeth proximate to the maxillary sinus.

    CE Hours: 1.5

    Description: Choosing to save and maintain teeth can be a difficult decision to make when it comes to compromised tooth structure. For example, periodontal procedures can be helpful to lengthen clinical crowns or to gain access to root surface defects such as external root resorption. However, before considering periodontal procedures, there are several factors to consider: Esthetics, tooth anatomy, alternative procedures, and long-term prognosis should all be taken into consideration. This presentation will review perio-restorative concepts to consider for endodontics as well as dive into the limitations that determine the restorability of teeth. The focus of this presentation will be on crown lengthening and oral plastic surgery procedures.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Discuss the indications, limitations, and technique for crown lengthening procedures
    • Discuss the indications, limitations, and technique for various oral plastic surgery procedures to address root surface defects such as external root resorption
    • Review periodontal considerations in determining the prognosis of teeth and how they may affect endodontic care

    CE Hours: 1.5

    Description: Root canal sealers are a critical component in obturation to provide a fluid-tight seal of the root canal system. Calcium silicate-based bioceramic sealers have emerged as a promising alternative to traditional resin-based or ZOE-based sealers. The increasing popularity of these materials is driving a paradigm change in obturation towards a more sealer-centric philosophy. The excellent flow characteristics, sealing ability, dimensional stability, and biocompatibility of bioceramic sealers allow them to be used in a simplified obturation technique without compromising the quality of obturation. Since the first bioceramic sealers were introduced in 2008, there has been growing evidence supporting the use of these materials. New products also continue to be developed and introduced. This presentation will provide an update on the recent development in the field of bioceramic sealers, review their relevant properties, discuss the clinical techniques of their application, and present the most current research related to the properties and clinical effectiveness of bioceramic sealers.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Describe the physical, chemical, and biological properties of bioceramic sealers and understand the benefits and limitations of these materials
    • Describe the clinical techniques for using bioceramic sealers in root canal obturation
    • Discuss current evidence from in vitro and clinical studies regarding bioceramic sealers

    CE Hours:0

    Description: It's only one concept in endodontics: elimination of bacteria and the pulp tissue from the root canal system while preserving maximum tooth structure for restoration and function. The purpose of endodontic therapy is to remove all the inflamed and necrotic tissues in the pulp, as well as the bacterial component, making the pulp and the root canals of the tooth as clean as possible. Making the root canals as clean as possible (one of the predictor factors for endodontic success) increases the predictability of our treatments.

    Scouting canals technique improves the shaping, disinfection, and obturation of the root canal system with cheap tools and a simple approach.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Describe the aim of this procedure
    • Explain the details of the technique
    • Discuss documented cases and to realize that this is a teachable, repeatable, and reproducible technique
