  • S-6 Decompression of Large Apical Lesions

    Product not yet rated 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-36 Web-based Survey in Regenerative Endodontics: What is Next?

    Product not yet rated Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker:Jennifer Gibbs, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D.; Tatiana Botero, MS; Vanessa Chrepa, D.D.S., M.S. | In this presentation, committee members will discuss the advantages and disadvantages encountered during the collection and analysis of this data. The committee also wants to recognize the survey’s participants for their important contribution to future research in Regenerative Endodontics.

    CE Hours: 1.0

    Description:Regenerate Endodontics is the innovative field in Endodontics that seeks to promote a biological root growth to save immature necrotic teeth. Regenerative Endodontic Procedures (REPs) are still being investigated, as multiple individual factors can interfere with the successful outcome. The AAE strongly supports clinicians and researchers to develop new strategies in regenerative endodontics. The Regenerative Endodontic Committee created a web-based survey which was offered to AAE members to share their treatment protocols for immature necrotic teeth. This presentation will offer to the assistants an overview of the data collected from more than 200 participants. 125 complete cases with good quality follow-up images were collected and 69 cases with at least 6 months of follow-up were analyzed. Research based on web data survey is a powerful tool to overcome some of the challenges in clinical research. In this presentation, committee members will discuss the advantages and disadvantages encountered during the collection and analysis of this data. The committee also wants to recognize the survey’s participants for their important contribution to future research in Regenerative Endodontics.

    • List most common protocols used by clinicians in REP in terms of irrigants, instrumentation, intracanal medicaments, materials used, etc.
    • Describe what the most predictable factors are to consider when selecting your patients for a REP.
    • Recognize the importance of the web-based survey to overcome the challenges, such as a significant sample size, to perform a relevant clinical research.

    Description: The goal of this presentation is to identify barriers that pediatric patients may face when seeking endodontic treatment of the permanent dentition. This presentation will explore access to care as it relates to  healthcare systems, behavioral considerations and clinical factors. This presentation will review dental care access/utilization trends for children in the United States. The training pediatric dentists receive in their residencies on management of endodontic issues will be highlighted in the context of how endodontists and pediatric dentists may better work together to achieve optimal care for mutual patients. Behavior management techniques will be reviewed to help the endodontist interact with the pediatric patient. A case study on New York State Medicaid beneficiaries will be highlight access to endodontic care and outcomes of root canal therapy for a pediatric population.

    • To describe review dental care access/utilization trends in the United States and outcomes for root canal therapy in a pediatric population.
    • To describe the training pediatric dental residents receive in endodontic topic and identify how this can influence interactions between endodontists and pediatric dentists to achieve optimal patient care results.

  • CD-10 Vital Pulp Therapy vs NSRCT: Where are the Choices?

    Product not yet rated Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker:Ron Lemon, D.M.D | The lecture will emphasize the critical components of the VPT treatment protocol, including preoperative diagnosis, total caries removal, mid-treatment pulpal evaluation after exposure, MTA placement (calcium silicate materials), and restoration. Appropriate research validation will be presented.

    CE Hours: 1.25

    Description: Endodontics - "the branch of dentistry concerned with the etiology, PREVENTION, diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the tooth pulp..." (Grossman). Are we? Modern dental therapeutics is directed toward minimally invasive procedures. Advancement in biologic sciences and materials has paved the way for a paradigm shift in pulpal therapy. Diagnostic results that traditionally indicated endodontic therapy must now be questioned. Many cariously exposed vital pulps can now be preserved using the principles of Vital Pulp Therapy. Additional, during treatment, diagnostic information can be used to determine the indication for pulp cap, pulpotomy, or pulpectomy. The lecture will emphasize the critical components of the VPT treatment protocol, including preoperative diagnosis, total caries removal, mid-treatment pulpal evaluation after exposure, MTA placement (calcium silicate materials), and restoration. Appropriate research validation will be presented.

    Bring an open mind!

    • Explain the rationale for total caries removal using Caries Indicator verses "Indirect Pulp Cap."
    • Disinfect dentin after caries removal and, if the pulp is exposed, evaluate hemorrhage flow for additional diagnostic information with respect to the stage of pulpal inflammation.
    • Describe the diagnostic indicators for pulp cap, pulpotomy, or pulpectomy/endodontic therapy.
