    • The Association between Choice of Diagnostic Imaging Modality and Long-term Treatment Outcomes for Patients Undergoing Nonsurgical Root Canal Treatment on Maxillary First Molars

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Authors: Devon M. Ptak, DMD, MPH,; Matthew D. Finkelman, PhD,† and Robert B. Amato, DMD | This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of NSRCT based on imaging modality selection for the initial treatment of maxillary first molars.

      CE Hours: 1.0

      Description: Radiography has played a fundamental role in the advancement of nonsurgical root canal therapy (NSRCT), allowing for more accurate diagnosis and treatment. Typically, providers choose to perform NSRCT using periapical (PA) radiographs alone or, often in more difficult cases, in conjunction with cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging. This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of NSRCT based on imaging modality selection for the initial treatment of maxillary first molars.

      • To describe the association between image modality selection, case complexity, and the associated risk of posttreatment endodontic disease.
      • To list factors that may influence the outcome of non-surgical root canal treatment (NSRCT) on maxillary first molars.
      • To assess the use of two imaging modalities (CBCT and PA radiographs) in the initial, non-surgical, treatment of maxillary first molars.

    • SP-9 Applications of 3D Printing Technology in Endodontics

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Speaker: Katsushi Okazaki, D.D.S., Ph.D.; Fahad Zaman, M.S. | Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies provide new possibilities for diagnosis, treatment planning and student education in dentistry.

      CE Hours: 1.0

      Description: Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies provide new possibilities for diagnosis, treatment planning and student education in dentistry. Applications of three-dimensional (3D) printing technology to dentistry have dramatically changed the disciplines of orthodontics, prosthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and more recently Endodontics. Fused deposition modeling (FDM), Digital light processing (DLP) and stereolithography (SLA) are available for use to print. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and 3D oral scans have been used in Endodontics as the imaging modality of choice for treatment planning of nonsurgical and surgical endodontic approaches. The application of 3D printing in endodontics was investigated in 3 modalities: guided non-surgical endodontics (guided endodontic access), guided surgical root resection endodontics (surgical guides, diagnosis, and treatment planning), and educational models in clinical simulation (preclinical training). The presentation will describe endodontic treatments performed with the aid of CBCT imaging and oral scan data used in 3D printing guides for endodontic access and surgical endodontics. The use of this data to develop endodontic preclinical training models is a highlight of the presentation.

      Learning Objectives: 

        List the current 3D printing technologies available for endodontic treatments.
      • Describe the applications of 3D printing technologies for endodontic treatments and education.
      • Apply 3D printing technologies for patients and students in the discipline.

    • SP-17 The Impact of Irrigation Strategy on Endodontic Outcome

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Speaker: Qian Xie, D.D.S., Ph.D.| Root canal irrigation plays a key role in the removal the pulp tissue, contaminants, debris and microorganisms from the root canal system.

      CE Hours: 1.0

      Description: Root canal irrigation plays a key role in the removal the pulp tissue, contaminants, debris and microorganisms from the root canal system. Different adjunctive agitation techniques have been developed to help irrigating solutions penetrate the complexities of a root canal system. Passive ultrasonic irrigation, multisonic agitation (Gentlewave™), sonic activation (EndoActivator™), and apical negative pressure irrigation systems (EndoVac™) have been reported to be superior to conventional positive pressure needle irrigation in regards to smear layer removal, antimicrobial effect, and decreased post-operative pain. However, is there enough evidence to show these adjunctive agitation techniques actually improve the success of root canal treatment? Based on a review of the current literature and personal clinical experience, the potential advantages of the commonly used systems will be explored

        List commonly used adjunctive agitation irrigation techniques.
      • Evaluate the current best available evidence to support the use of specific adjunctive agitation irrigation techniques.
      • Choose the most appropriate adjunctive agitation techniques for root canal treatment.

    • S-6 Decompression of Large Apical Lesions

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Speaker: James D. Johnson, D.D.S., M.S. | Nonsurgical endodontic therapy is highly successful in the treatment of apical periodontitis; however, Nair states that true apical cysts likely will not heal without surgical intervention.

      CE Hours: 1.0

      Description: Nonsurgical endodontic therapy is highly successful in the treatment of apical periodontitis; however, Nair states that true apical cysts likely will not heal without surgical intervention. Apical surgery with root-end resection and root-end filling of teeth with unhealed apical periodontitis is also highly successful. Often these lesions can be very large and encompass adjacent teeth with vital pulps. Complete enucleation of a large apical lesion can potentially lead to devitalization of adjacent teeth with vital pulps. Decompression of these large apical lesions, following nonsurgical endodontic treatment, can lead to a reduction in the size of the lesion, and in some cases lead to complete healing. However, most cases will need surgical intervention. The advantage of decompression is that, even if surgery is required to bring about complete healing, the lesion is reduced in size to the extent that adjacent teeth with vital pulps will not be subjected to devitalization from the surgical procedure. Cases demonstrating different approaches and techniques for decompression will be presented.

      • Differentiate between marsupialization and decomprssion.
      • List the advantages and disadvantages of decompressing large apical lesions.
      • Describe different techniques for decompressing large apical lesions.

    • SP-1 Are Bioceramics the Ideal Obturation Material? Evidence-Based Answers to a New Obturation Choice.

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Speaker: Michael Marmo, D.MD| Nonsurgical endodontic therapy is highly successful in the treatment of apical periodontitis; however, Nair states that true apical cysts likely will not heal without surgical intervention.

      CE Hours: 1.0

      Description: From vital pulp therapy to apical microsurgery, bioceramics are used in everyday endodontic practice. Bioactivity, hydrophilicity, and ease of manipulation are some of the favorable characteristics that have made these materials worthwhile. But do bioceramics perform equally as well for obturation? Questions concerning the use of a single cone technique, ability to retreat, and the influence of our current irrigation protocols on bioceramic sealer will be examined. We will explore the latest evidence-based biological response and initial outcomes of these materials to consider bioceramic obturation as the new technique of choice.

      • Describe the properties of bioceramics that make them ideal for obturation.
      • Discuss current clinical techniques and recommendations to utilizes these materials effectively.
      • List the advantages and limitations of bioceramic obturation materials.
