  • Legal Conundrums Associated with CBCT in Endodontics

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Ashok Balasundaram, BDS, DDS, MDS, MS; Uma Nair, DMD, MDS This session will discuss the use of CBCT in endodontics from the perspective of the position paper jointly published by the AAE and the AAOMR. The implications for the use of this technology, its relevance in specific diagnostic tasks, and limitations will be discussed from a risk to benefit ratio perspective that is justifiable.

    CE Hours: 2.0 CE hour 

    Description: This session will discuss the use of CBCT in endodontics from the perspective of the position paper jointly published by the AAE and the AAOMR. The implications for the use of this technology, its relevance in specific diagnostic tasks, and limitations will be discussed from a risk to benefit ratio perspective that is justifiable. Further, the need for proper documentation of history, indications, and protocol implemented will be discussed. Potential legal implications arising out of appropriate use of CBCT technology such as choice of limited fields of view, exposure parameters with a high signal-to-noise-ratio yield, and conformance with ALARA principles will be reviewed in the context of the Image Gently campaign supported by numerous specialty organizations in dentistry and medicine.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Explain difference between two-dimensional and three-dimensional imaging
    • Elaborate legal issues surrounding diagnoses made from CBCT images
    • Summarize pertinent legal issues as it relates to the use of CBCT in endodontics

  • 3-D Imaging in Endodontics: A New Era in Diagnosis and Treatment

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Mohamed I. Fayad, D.D.S., M.S., PhD This presentation will focus on how CBCT technology has provided clinicians with a different understanding of the dynamics of endodontic disease as well as healing. Based on the information received from the recall CBCT cases not responding to treatment (non-surgical and surgical) changes in treatment protocols and armamentarium will be presented.​

    CE Hours: 2.5 CE hour 

    Description: Diagnostic information directly influences clinical decisions. Accurate data lead to better treatment-planning decisions and potentially more predictable outcomes. CBCT is an emerging technology that can offer the clinician clinically relevant information that cannot be gathered from conventional radiography. The ability to assess an area of interest in 3 dimensions eliminates the superimposition that is inherent in conventional radiographic imaging. Cone-beam technology currently has numerous applications in the dental field. CBCT is having great impact and is changing dramatically case diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment outcomes in the daily practice. Conventional 2-dimensional radiography uses defined criteria for non-surgical and surgical outcome assessment. However, these radiographic healing criteria are not applicable for 3-dimensional radiography. This presentation will focus on how CBCT technology has provided clinicians with a different understanding of the dynamics of endodontic disease as well as healing. Based on the information received from the recall CBCT cases not responding to treatment (non-surgical and surgical) changes in treatment protocols and armamentarium will be presented.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Apply CBCT imaging in the following cases: Diagnosis of pain, cracked teeth and vertical root fracture.
    • Utilize the appropriate Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) products as bone grafts and membranes in endo/perio and marginal defect cases when indicated.
    • Utilize 3-D information to establish the correct strategy to achieve a good prognosis well before the beginning of the treatment (non-surgical, surgical or single tooth implant).

  • Practical Applications of CBCT in Endodontic Practice

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: William J. Nudera, D.D.S., M.S. This presentation will focus on how CBCT technology has provided clinicians with a different understanding of the dynamics of endodontic disease as well as healing. Based on the information received from the recall CBCT cases not responding to treatment (non-surgical and surgical) changes in treatment protocols and armamentarium will be presented.​

    CE Hours: 2.0 CE hour 

    Description: CBCT scanners have become commonplace in the modern endodontic practice, yet controversy remains regarding when to capture a scan. Current guidelines can leave room for individual interpretation. Information available on the cone beam scan can significantly impact decision making and aid in the treatment approach. It is being suggested here that a cone bean scan should be captured 100% of the time on all treatment cases. This presentation is designed to demonstrate the advantages and applications of cone beam scanning for the purposes of leveraging this information during clinical treatment.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Explain the use of CBCT imaging in 100% on treatment cases
    • Identify common barriers that prevent clinicains from capturing scans on 100% of thier patients
    • Explain specific techniques to improve clinical efficiency based on information available on the CBCT scan

  • Part 1: Endodontic Treatment Outcomes in 2-D and in 3-D: Impacts and Dilemmas

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Robert E. Grover, D.D.S. This session will address these dilemmas in three parts. It will characterize the detection ability of periradicular findings by 2D and 3D imaging. It will then define appropriate endodontic treatment outcomes and debate the possible role of 3D imaging in assessing periradicular health/disease. Finally, it will summarize the current best evidence for nonsurgical endodontic treatment outcomes with regards to periradicular health/disease and clinical signs/symptoms based on 2D imaging, and relate those outcomes to assessment with 3D imaging.

    CE Hours: 1.0 CE hour 

    Description: Knowledge of treatment outcomes empowers clinicians to (1) inform patients on prognosis for alternative treatment options, (2) assess effectiveness of specific treatment interventions, and (3) define for patients the specific post-treatment outcome of a treated tooth. The current emphasis on evidence-based endodontics and the favorable outcomes of implants have led to an increased interest in endodontic outcome studies; however, because measuring and reporting outcomes may be biased, reported outcomes vary and may misrepresent actual reality.The growing interest in endodontic treatment outcomes has generated two contemporary dilemmas: (1) Should outcomes be assessed with CBCT considering the limitations of periapical radiographs in detecting periradicular disease? (2) Should outcome assessment focus on health/disease, primarily assessed by radiographic imaging, or on absence/presence of clinical signs/symptoms? This session will address these dilemmas in three parts. It will characterize the detection ability of periradicular findings by 2D and 3D imaging. It will then define appropriate endodontic treatment outcomes and debate the possible role of 3D imaging in assessing periradicular health/disease. Finally, it will summarize the current best evidence for nonsurgical endodontic treatment outcomes with regards to periradicular health/disease and clinical signs/symptoms based on 2D imaging, and relate those outcomes to assessment with 3D imaging.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Recognize the differences in detecting periradicular findings by 2D and 3D imaging
    • Discuss the specific goals of endodontic treatment and the associated treatment outcomes
    • Inform patients on the pre-treatment prognosis and define the post-treatment outcome based on the current best evidence
