  • Progress of Conservative/Regenerative Endodontics

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    George Huang, D.D.S., M.S.D., D.Sc. | This presentation will review the progress of regenerative endodontics.

    CE: 1.0 

    Description: This presentation will review the progress of regenerative endodontics. The definition of regenerative endodontics will be clarified, as will be the term “revitalization” treatment. There are two categories of clinical approaches to regain vitalization of pulp. One is revitalization or also termed revascularization, which does not involve the delivery of processed stem cells into the canals. On the other hand, stem cell-based therapy involves implanting processed stem cells into the root canal space. This approach has shown the regeneration of pulp- and dentin-like tissues in the canal space from animal and human clinical trial studies, suggesting potential practice of true “regenerative endodontics” in the future. The various animal and human clinical studies have shown that the tissues developed in revitalization/revascularization procedures are fibrous connective tissue, some resembling periodontal ligament, not pulp-like, and the mineral tissue as cementum-like or bone, not dentin-like. One outcome regarding revitalization treatment is canal space obliteration by calcification, which accounts for a high percentage of such cases. 

    At the conclusion, participants will be able to: 

    • Describe the definition of “conservative endodontics” and revitalization/revascularization procedures.
    • Describe the definition of “regenerative endodontics.”
    • Describe the progress of “regenerative endodontics” in humans.

  • Cracking the Cracked Teeth Code Utilizing CBCT Imaging: A New Perspective On Diagnosis, CBCT Imaging, Treatment Strategies, And Outcomes

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Mohamad Fayad, D.D.S., M.S. Ph.D. | This evidence-based presentation will address the classification and diagnosis of different types of cracks and the role of CBCT imaging in these cases, as well as the prognosis and changes in treatment protocols and outcomes of cracked teeth.

    Live Webinar: January 9. 2020 at 6:00 pm CT

    CE: 1.0 

    Description: A lack of consensus exists among dentists and endodontists on cracked teeth. Accurate clinical evaluation, imaging and diagnosis is paramount to properly treatment planning cracked teeth. With the resurgence of the philosophy of saving compromised teeth over extraction, and our patients’ desire to save their teeth, the question remains: “Which cracked teeth should be treated and which cracked teeth should be extracted?” Applying the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches, dentists can now use minimally invasive biomimetic techniques to provide restorations that come close to functionally and biomechanically mimicking the original, healthy state of a tooth. This evidence-based presentation will address the classification and diagnosis of different types of cracks and the role of CBCT imaging in these cases, as well as the prognosis and changes in treatment protocols and outcomes of cracked teeth.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

    • Describe the role of CBCT imaging in identifying cracked tooth types, extent of the fractures, and early bone pattern changes associated with cracked teeth.
    • Explain the prognosis and outcomes studies related to treatment and management of cracked teeth and vertical root fractures.
    • Apply the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches for restoration of cracked teeth.
