SP-26 Reputation? A Historical and Current Approach to Better Outcomes of Endodontically Treated TeethContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: S. Ryan Facer, D.D.S.|This lecture aims to summarize the literature and summarize the cases and techniques demonstrating resolution and healing of symptomatic teeth with radiographic lesions from 100 different endodontic specialty practices in order to find insights into better individual outcomes and improve the reputations of endodontically treated teeth.
SP-22 Dilemmas in Managing Immature TeethContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Paul Vincent. Abbott, B,D.Sc., MDS, FRACDS,|This presentation will explore the concepts behind these options and will discuss the findings reported in the literature. The outcomes of these three options, their longevity, practical aspects and suitability for re-treatment will be compared to enable clinicians to choose the appropriate management option for individual cases.
SP-2 Endo in the Time of Implants: Proper Understanding of Treatment OptionsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Adham A. Azim, B.D.S. The goal of endodontics is to prevent and treat apical periodontitis. Inconsistent treatment outcomes have been reported for different endodontic procedures, especially in cases with persistent endodontic infection. Treatment decisions in such cases may often be a dilemma. Recommendations to the patients may vary from follow-up for longer periods, intervention through surgical or nonsurgical approaches, or even tooth extraction and selection of a potentially more successful treatment option such as dental implants. Clinicians must understand the prognostic factors that can influence the outcome of an endodontic treatment and the time required for endodontic lesions to heal. It is also essential to realize the long-term outcomes of implant dentistry in the hands of specialists and general dentists. All these factors must be well understood to select the optimal treatment decision for each case.
D-1 Looking Through the “Retrospective Scope” - How I Would Have Done It Differently (Nonsurgical Cases)Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Kirk A. Coury, D.D.S., M.S., William J. Nudera, D.D.S., M.S., Denis E. Simon, D.D.S., M.S., Kenneth J. Zucker, D.D.S., M.S. If correcting a clinical problem were as easy as clicking “undo” on a keyboard, dentistry would be simple. This presentation is designed showcase treatment approaches that resulted in less than ideal outcomes and how these cases were managed.
SP-41 Meta-analysis: Nonsurgical Outcomes with Modern TechniquesContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Asgeir Sigurdsson, D.D.S., M.S. Endodontic therapy aims to remove vital or necrotic tissue and all microorganisms from the root canal system and thereby enable periapical healing. In the presentation, an overview of various techniques that are presently used, the extent of cleaning and disinfection, and their effect on long-term healing rates will be elucidated and analyzed by meta-analysis approach.
SP-3 Endodontic Outcome: Factors that MatterContains 3 Component(s)
Speaker: Adham A. Azim, B.D.S. In this session we will present a review on factors that matters for a successful nonsurgical and surgical treatment. Along with reviewing the literature, we will also present multiple clinical cases that were considered hopeless by dentists and endodontists and emphasis on critical thinking for successfully management.
S-12 Evaluation of Surgical Treatment Outcome: Primary and Re-surgeryContains 3 Component(s)
Speakers: Meetu Kohli, D.M.D., Euiseong Kim, D.D.S., M.S.D., Ph.D. The probability of success evaluated by critical analysis of the literature is an important step in practicing evidence-based dentistry. This presentation will critically review the available literature to evaluate mitigating variables including the indication for retreatment before surgery, reversal of success over a longer observation period and intraoperative variables as well as potential reasons for failure and the expectations from resurgery.
O-5 Predictors of Endodontic Outcomes: A Summary of PracticeProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Alan S. Law, D.D.S., Ph.D. Donald R. Nixdorf, D.D.S., M.S. A number of studies have addressed outcomes of nonsurgical root canal treatment. However, there are relatively few prospective large-scale studies that have assessed the frequency of post-operative pain and tooth survival. This interactive presentation will summarize findings from previous research on short- and long-term outcomes of nonsurgical root canal treatment with an emphasis on findings from recent practice-based research results. In addition, participants will be given opportunities to provide input as to which patient-, tooth- and treatment-level factors should be evaluated as predictors of these endodontic outcomes.
NS-22 Critical Review of Endodontic Treatment OutcomesContains 2 Component(s)
Speakers: Gary B. Carr, D.D.S., Shimon Friedman, D.M.D., Dipl.Endodontics(Israel).The recent emphasis on evidence-based endodontics and reports on the favorable outcomes of implants have focused attention on long-term outcomes of endodontic treatment. Accurate outcomes assessment is important for communication with patients to inform treatment decisions by frankly measuring benefits and risks, but also for validation of the theoretical foundation of endodontics, for guiding research efforts and for supporting the economic viability of practices and, perhaps, our specialty in general.
NS-6 How to Improve Your Microscope SkillsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Carlos Aznar Portoles, D.D.S., M.Sc. Dr. Portoles will describe how the microscope may be used to best advantage by the endodontist and team in an efficient, low-stress environment. He will describe how proper use of the microscope can improve your clinical results, reduce your stress and avoid the neck and back pain so common among dental practitioners.
