  • SP-5 Thinking Outside the Box: Beyond Our Routine NSRCT, Retx and Root

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Rachele Luciano, D.M.D., F.R.C.D.(C) This presentation will discuss treatment options that are within the realm of endodontics but that are not routinely performed by specialists. Most endodontic practices, with few exceptions, limit their treatment options to nonsurgical root canal treatments, retreatments and some root-end resection surgeries. Literature review and case presentations on pulp capping, apexogenesis, apexification, revascularization, invasive cervical root resorption repair, autotransplantation, decompression, decoronation and trauma management will be presented. These cases differ from our usual treatments as endodontists and provide a service for our patients. These non-routine cases also provide personal satisfaction as clinicians and are impressive cases to present to referring doctors.

  • O-2 Regenerative Endodontics Versus Apexification

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    Anibal Diogenes, D.D.S., M.S., Ph. D. Clinicians are often faced with the challenge of treating underdeveloped, immature teeth with pulpal necrosis. These cases have been traditionally treated with apexification procedures. In the last decade, regenerative endodontic procedures have emerged as an alternative for treating immature teeth. This lecture focuses on discussing the current evidence that supports both procedures, while providing the biological basis for clinical decision making. In addition, case selection, expected outcomes and technical pitfalls of each procedure will be presented and discussed.

  • SP-25 Treatment of the Transgender Dental Patient & SP-26 Laying the Foundation for Pediatric Endodontics: Are we Ready for Kids Now?

    Contains 9 Component(s), Includes Credits

    SP-25: Speaker: Anne L. Koch, D.M.D. Transgender patients have historically been stigmatized both in the medical and dental fields. The purpose of this presentation is to educate endodontists, residents, and staff about the medical and psychological needs of transgender individuals. This presentation will teach dental personnel how to best interact and serve this population of dental patients. SP-26: Speakers: Rebeca Weisleder, D.D.S., M.Ed., Montserrat Mercade, D.D.S., Ph.D. Vital pulp therapy and treatment of necrotic immature teeth are an important part of endodontic practice and the technical aspects are well understood. This lecture will describe different techniques available to successfully treat young patients with vital and necrotic immature teeth in an effective and more efficient manner.

  • PB-13 Vital Pulp Therapy Guidelines

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    Speaker: David E. Witherspoon, B.D.S., M.S., M.F.A., F.I.C.D, This lecture will exam the current and future trend in vital pulp treatment. A case-based analysis will be used to explore treatment options that incorporate evidence-based treatment protocols into the everyday clinical practice.

  • Point/Counterpoint: Regenerative Endodontics vs. Apexification

    Contains 3 Component(s)

    Speakers: Nestor Cohenca, D.D.S., F.I.A.D.T. & Anibal Diogenes, D.D.S., M.S., Ph. D. Although classical apexification remains a treatment option, pulp revascularization exploits the full potential for tissue ingrowth toward dentin-like tissue deposition and stronger roots able to withstand fracture. This presentation will discuss the importance of case selection and review the current evidence-based literature comparing the outcome and predictability of both therapies in immature teeth.
