  • 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.

  • NS-17 Vital Pulp Therapy Update

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    Speaker: Nestor Cohenca, D.D.S. The ultimate goals of vital pulp therapy are to preserve and protect the reversibly inflamed pulp tissue from additional injury, and to facilitate healing while maintaining the tooth and its ultimate position in the arch. For young, permanent, immature teeth, a conservative approach should always be our first priority to permit dentin deposition and development of a stronger mature root able to withstand occlusal loading. The etiology of exposure and the status of the pulp are the main factors correlated to the long-term outcome. Current advancement in biological-based materials further contributes to the outcome by providing a biocompatible seal. Contemporary vital pulp therapy techniques became efficient and predictable, as long as the proper assessment of the situation is made, and treatment is carried out in the appropriate fashion with strict adherence to the proper technique. This presentation will review the current evidence-based research and illustrate the clinical indications for of vital pulp therapy.
