  • SP-36 Endodontic Controversies: Clinical and Pharmacologic

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

    Speaker: Paul A. Rosenberg, D.D.S.| Controversies exist in clinical and pharmacologic aspects of endodontics. For example, a recent study raised doubts about the benefits of incision and drainage for patients with fluctuant swellings of endodontic origin. However, incision and drainage has historically been the standard treatment for that condition.

    CE: 1.0

    Course Description: 

    Controversies exist in clinical and pharmacologic aspects of endodontics. For example, a recent study raised doubts about the benefits of incision and drainage for patients with fluctuant swellings of endodontic origin. However, incision and drainage has historically been the standard treatment for that condition. An assessment of the research and its significance for clinicians will be discussed. The appropriate use of opioids in dentistry continues to be a critical issue. In the face of an opioid epidemic, dentists have turned to over-the-counter analgesics. However, acetaminophen, ibuprofen and other NsAIDs have been associated with serious side reactions that are of concern especially when used by pregnant patients. These medications have been linked to childhood asthma/wheezing, behavioral problems, hyperkinetic activity and the incidence of myocardial infarcts. Another controversy concerning NsAIDS and acetaminophen is their value in pre meditating patients with irreversible pulpitis prior to inferior alveolar nerve blocks. The clinical implications of these controversies will be discussed.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Evaluate current evidence for Incision and dreaianage in patients with swelling.
    • Discuss recent research concerning complications associated with acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
    • Describe factors to be considered in selecting analgesics for pregnant patients.

  • SP-14 Vital Pulp Therapy, When, Why and How? Long Follow-Up Case Series Presentation and Literature Review

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

    Speaker: Jenner O. Argueta, D.D.S., M.Sc.| The main goal of the lecture is to provide clinical techniques and scientific information related to the moment in which the clinician must decide on a root canal treatment or to give the pulpo-dentinal complex the opportunity to survive, maintaining in this way the important biological functions that the pulpal tissue performs. Always keeping in mind the fact that as long as we don’t know what we treat, overtreatment seems to be easier and more predictable than preservation of vital tissues. (Rechemberg, D. Zehnder, M. 2014).​

    CE: 1.0

    Course Description: 

    As endodontists, we know that our job is more than doing root canal treatments for giving to patient's body a good environment to prevent or heal periapical pathosis. Our labor goes beyond the limits of a root canal space needing to be cleaned, shaped and filled. From an optimistic point of view, endodontist's advisable goal should be a first step intervention focused in the treatment of pulp disease, providing the organism a proper environment to allowed tissue recovery when it is damaged. The main goal of the lecture is to provide clinical techniques and scientific information related to the moment in which the clinician must decide on a root canal treatment or to give the pulpo-dentinal complex the opportunity to survive, maintaining in this way the important biological functions that the pulpal tissue performs. Always keeping in mind the fact that as long as we don’t know what we treat, overtreatment seems to be easier and more predictable than preservation of vital tissues. (Rechemberg, D. Zehnder, M. 2014).

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Choose and apply the proper vital pulp therapy technique, according to the clinical situation.
    • Discuss the biological mechanisms involved on pulp tissue recovery and reparative/reactive dentine bridge formation.
    • List clinical inclusion criteria for a reliable long-term good prognosis on vital pulp therapy.

  • SP-38 Post-Operative Endodontic Pain: Prevalence, Predictability, Risk Factors, and Management

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Loai A. Alsofi, B.D.S, DSc| Here, we present information form the literature regarding predictors of postoperative pain, risk factors, and management. The objective is to try to come into the conclusion that prevention of post-operative pain is the key for successful pain management.

    CE: 0.75

    Course Description: 

    Post-operative pain is defined as pain of any degree that occurs after the initiation of root canal treatment, while endodontic flare-up has been defined as the onset or continuation of pain and/or swelling after endodontic treatment. It is well perceived that pretreatment pain predicts post-treatment pain and is consistent with several endodontic studies. While post-operative pain following an endodontic procedure is distressing for the patient, particularly when he or she arrives asymptomatic to the dental office, it is professionally unacceptable for the clinician. According to modern concepts, pain control is a foreseeing action and early prevention whereas earlier concepts of control were implemented when errors were detected or anticipated. According to recent studies, pain perception and modulation is genetically enhanced and altered in patients with persistent post endodontic pain. Here, we present information form the literature regarding predictors of postoperative pain, risk factors, and management. The objective is to try to come into the conclusion that prevention of post-operative pain is the key for successful pain management.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Define postoperative pain and its causes.
    • Predict the occurrence of postoperative pain and assess risk factors.
    • Manage postoperative pain by the concept of prevention rather than postoperative pain management.

  • SP-45 Treatment of Mature Permanent Teeth with Irreversible Pulpitis: A Forgotten Vital Pulp Therapy

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Louis Lin, BDS, DMD, PhD| Traditionally, mature permanent teeth clinically diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis are treated with complete root canal therapy (RCT). However, recent studies have showed that mature permanent teeth with irreversible pulpitis could be successfully treated with vital pulp therapy (VPT). Complete RCT compared to VPT has following disadvantages: weakening of the teeth by removing tooth structure to accommodate root canal filling; higher prevalence of root fracture; poorer survival rate; prone to carious attack; and loss of apical healthy pulp to prevent development of apical periodontitis.

    CE: 0.75

    Course Description: 

    Traditionally, mature permanent teeth clinically diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis are treated with complete root canal therapy (RCT). However, recent studies have showed that mature permanent teeth with irreversible pulpitis could be successfully treated with vital pulp therapy (VPT). Complete RCT compared to VPT has following disadvantages: weakening of the teeth by removing tooth structure to accommodate root canal filling; higher prevalence of root fracture; poorer survival rate; prone to carious attack; and loss of apical healthy pulp to prevent development of apical periodontitis. In VPT, correct diagnosis of a pulp disease is important. Clinically, diagnosis of a pulp disease based on the patient’s subjective symptoms and objective clinical examination is a challenge. Control of pulp infection and bacteria-tight seal of pulp wound with capping materials and coronal restoration are keys to the success of VPT. VPT of mature permanent teeth with irreversible pulpits can be an option to complete RCT, similar to regenerative endodontic therapy, which is an option to traditional apexification of immature permanent teeth with necrotic pulp.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Describe the definition of irreversible pulpitis.
    • Discuss pulp infection and pulp inflammation.
    • Perform a vital pulp therapy.

  • SP-47 Management of Horizontal Root Fractures

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

    Speaker: Paul Vincent Abbott, B,D.Sc., MDS, FRACDS(Endo)| This presentation will outline the types of horizontal root fractures, the healing responses following such fractures, options for managing these fractures to obtain the best outcome and how to manage adverse outcomes.​

    CE: 0.75

    Course Description: 

    Horizontal root fractures are complex injuries as many tissues are involved - pulp, dentine, cementum, bone and periodontal ligament. These fractures can occur at different levels of the root. Fractures in the apical third and mid-third of the root should be managed conservatively and predictable healing can usually be achieved without needing root canal treatment. Management of coronal third fractures is based on whether the fracture occurs sub-crestally (within bone) or supra-crestally (outside bone). Sub-crestal fractures should be managed conservatively while supra-crestal fractures require more invasive treatment. This presentation will outline the types of horizontal root fractures, the healing responses following such fractures, options for managing these fractures to obtain the best outcome and how to manage adverse outcomes.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Describe the various types of horizontal root fractures.
    • Evaluate the prognosis for the different types of root fractures.
    • Manage the various types of root fractures to provide a good prognosis for the tooth.

  • SP-56 Obturation in the New Small World

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Paul Vincent Abbott, B,D.Sc., MDS, FRACDS(Endo)| This presentation will revisit the goals of obturation and discuss multiple techniques from single cone to carrier-based systems with a focus on the future of obturation.​

    CE: 1.0

    Course Description: 

    Endodontic success is dependent on many things we do as practitioners. It is important that we effectively debride and disinfect the root canal system, however once this is completed, the system must be sealed both coronally and apically to ensure a greater chance for success. With advances in technology that allow us to debride minimally prepared canals, our techniques to obturate these small spaces have changed. This presentation will revisit the goals of obturation and discuss multiple techniques from single cone to carrier-based systems with a focus on the future of obturation.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Discuss current research related to endodontic obturation.
    • Describe the limitations associated with obturating small canal preparations.
    • Evaluate techniques that allow for efficient obturation of small spaces that achieve the goals of obturation.

  • SP-6 Can We Predictably Disinfect Minimally Invasive Canal Preparations?

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Jonathan Uhles, D.D.S., MDS.| New technology has the potential to disinfect the entire root canal system and facilitate conservation of tooth structure, minimizing the likelihood of cervical and vertical root fractures post-treatment.

    CE: 0.75

    Course Description: 

    Advances in instrument design and metallurgy now allow for predictable shaping of the primary canals within a root canal system - severe curvature and calcification notwithstanding. Proper disinfection of the complete canal system, however, has remained elusive with no predictable method for complete sterilization following instrumentation. New technology has the potential to disinfect the entire root canal system and facilitate conservation of tooth structure, minimizing the likelihood of cervical and vertical root fractures post-treatment.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Discuss the drawbacks of traditional tapered rotary instrumentation and list the advances in metallurgy that allow for conservative shaping of the root canal system.
    • Describe the mechanism of action for various disinfection systems and list the advantages and disadvantages of each device.
    • Discuss the advantages of combining minimal instrumentation with new technology to adequately disinfect the root canal system.
