    • The Association between Choice of Diagnostic Imaging Modality and Long-term Treatment Outcomes for Patients Undergoing Nonsurgical Root Canal Treatment on Maxillary First Molars

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Authors: Devon M. Ptak, DMD, MPH,; Matthew D. Finkelman, PhD,† and Robert B. Amato, DMD | This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of NSRCT based on imaging modality selection for the initial treatment of maxillary first molars.

      CE Hours: 1.0

      Description: Radiography has played a fundamental role in the advancement of nonsurgical root canal therapy (NSRCT), allowing for more accurate diagnosis and treatment. Typically, providers choose to perform NSRCT using periapical (PA) radiographs alone or, often in more difficult cases, in conjunction with cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) imaging. This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of NSRCT based on imaging modality selection for the initial treatment of maxillary first molars.

      • To describe the association between image modality selection, case complexity, and the associated risk of posttreatment endodontic disease.
      • To list factors that may influence the outcome of non-surgical root canal treatment (NSRCT) on maxillary first molars.
      • To assess the use of two imaging modalities (CBCT and PA radiographs) in the initial, non-surgical, treatment of maxillary first molars.

    • SP-25 Future of Endodontics - Short Term and Long Term

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Speaker: Gunnar Hasselgren, DDS, PhD| This is of course welcome for the practicing endodontist, but it will also lower the threshold for the general practitioner who may have hesitated to include a technically difficult area into his/her practice.

      CE Hours: 1.0

      Description: To attempt to look into the future is of course difficult, but there are trends in today’s general dentistry practice that most likely will affect the specialty of endodontics and it is important that we as specialists are aware of these trends. In addition, new technological devices are constantly arriving and usually their main goal is to simplify the technically difficult endodontic treatment. This is of course welcome for the practicing endodontist, but it will also lower the threshold for the general practitioner who may have hesitated to include a technically difficult area into his/her practice. Also, Artificial Intelligence is opening possibilities to create devices that may be able to take over the cleaning, shaping and filling of root canals. It is important for the endodontics specialist to be aware of the future of advanced technology in our field.

        Describe present trends in general dentistry that may profoundly influence the future of our specialty.
      • Evaluate new technology that is launched to simplify endodontic therapy.
      • Describe the changes that artificial intelligence can bring to endodontics.

    • S-6 Decompression of Large Apical Lesions

      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-1 Are Bioceramics the Ideal Obturation Material? Evidence-Based Answers to a New Obturation Choice.

      Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

      Speaker: Michael Marmo, D.MD| 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: From vital pulp therapy to apical microsurgery, bioceramics are used in everyday endodontic practice. Bioactivity, hydrophilicity, and ease of manipulation are some of the favorable characteristics that have made these materials worthwhile. But do bioceramics perform equally as well for obturation? Questions concerning the use of a single cone technique, ability to retreat, and the influence of our current irrigation protocols on bioceramic sealer will be examined. We will explore the latest evidence-based biological response and initial outcomes of these materials to consider bioceramic obturation as the new technique of choice.

      • Describe the properties of bioceramics that make them ideal for obturation.
      • Discuss current clinical techniques and recommendations to utilizes these materials effectively.
      • List the advantages and limitations of bioceramic obturation materials.
