  • SP-5 Endodontic Microsurgery on Molars

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

    Speaker: Jean-Philippe Mallet, D.D.S. | The PRF preparations (clots and membranes) allow a better bone healing and an easier stable re-seating of the window. On molars endodontic surgery, the “Cortical Bone Window” technique may allow the operator an easier surgery and a quicker healing with a high regenerative healing potential.

    CE Hours: 1.0

    Description:Endodontic Microsurgery may be a solution to remove an apical lesion and treat the endodontic cause of the infection, especially if the lesion is a cyst or if the retreatment too destructive for a good prognosis. According to a CBCT analysis, on lower molars the access must be difficult or very invasive with a thick mandibular bone (external oblique line) and on upper molars the sinus apical projection may make the access more complex. The “Cortical Bone Window” approach can be the minimally invasive solution. Thus, the visibility and the access of the lesion for the root preparation and filling would be more predictable. To be released, the quadrilateral piece of cortical bone can be cut with piezzo inserts in order to be more precise, less invasive and safe . The PRF preparations (clots and membranes) allow a better bone healing and an easier stable re-seating of the window. On molars endodontic surgery, the “Cortical Bone Window” technique may allow the operator an easier surgery and a quicker healing with a high regenerative healing potential.

      Analyze the indication of the "cortical bone window" technique on molars endo-surgery.
    • Describe the surgical approach of the "cortical bone window" technique
    • Describes the benefits of the "cortical bone window" technique when added to a PRF preparation.

    Product not yet rated 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.
