SP-47 Management of Horizontal Root FracturesProduct 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.
Diagnosis of Crown and Root Fractures: Facts and SpeculationsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Aviad Tamse, D.M.D. | In this presentation, a new classification of tooth fractures will be presented based on origination and propagation coupled with identification of the crowns and roots susceptible to fracture. The presentation will stress the importance of achieving timely and accurate diagnosis of root fractures and the factors that are making diagnosing root fractures at times elusive and frustrating.
SP-16 The Evidence for Vertical Root Fracture Diagnosis in Endodontically Treated Teeth: To Have and Have NotProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Aviad Tamse, D.M.D. In 2008, the AAE had stated that the combination of a sinus tract, isolated probing defect with or without a dowel, is pathognomonic for vertical root fracture (VRF) in endodontically treated teeth. When the diagnosis is done, extraction of the tooth or root is needed. Unfortunately, this combination does not occur often because VRF can mimic other clinical entities with a variety of radiographic manifestations. As a result, accurate and timely diagnosis of a vertical root fracture is still confusing and perplexing at times for the clinician. A recent systematic review analysis showed the lack of evidence-based data to support the usefulness of the clinical and radiographic evaluation methods. The rapid improvements in CBCT imaging techniques may soon be one of the useful means to achieving more accurate and timely diagnosis of VRFs in endodontically treated teeth.
NS-7 Accurate Vertical Root Fractures Diagnosis: Facts and SpeculationsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Aviad Tamse, B.D.S. Accurate and timely diagnosis of vertical root fracture (VRF) is still confusing and perplexing at times for the clinician. In recent years, with the improvements in CBCT imaging techniques, this diagnostic modality can be useful for better visualization of the bony resorption around the root, but not so much for the fracture itself since it depends on the fracture size and various artifacts.
D-5 Cracked Teeth: To Treat or Not to Treat? That Is the QuestionContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Louis H. Berman, D.D.S., FACD, Keith V. Krell, D.D.S., M.S., M.A. When a crack is suspected, determining whether or not to do endodontic treatment – or to consider extraction – may be a difficult treatment dilemma. Drs. Berman and Krell will systematically review the many variables that should be taken into consideration before the bur ever hits the tooth.
NS-3 Advanced Uses of CBCT in EndodonticsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Michael J. Feldman, D.M.D. Evan R. Chugerman, D.MD, M.S.Ed., M.A. This course will discuss the most current uses of cone beam-computed tomography as it pertains to endodontic treatment and diagnosis. Included will be discussion and examples of why CBCT is ideal during endodontic cases of diagnosis, fractures, mid-treatment, resorption, presurgical and implant planning. Upon completion of this course, the participant will have a better understanding of the CBCT and its important role in providing optimal endodontic care.
SP-12 AAE's Pathognomonic Combination for Vertical Root Fracture Diagnosis: Is the Evidence Based?Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Aviad Tamse, D.M.D., In 2008, the AAE stated that an endodontically treated tooth (with or without a dowel), isolated periodontal probing defect and a sinus tract is pathognomonic for the presence of vertical root fracture (VRF). When diagnosis is done, extraction of the tooth is needed.

NS-20 Cracks and Fractures in Vital and Endodonticaly Treated TeethContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Zvi Metzger, D.M.D. Cracks and fractures that are found in vital and in endodonticaly treated teeth may present with a large variety of confusing signs and symptoms. The various clinical expressions of these two distinctive clinical conditions represent continuous processes that the operator happened to meet at a given time point. A vital tooth may present with a crack with no other symptoms than pain on chewing, then develop symptoms of pulpitis and eventually present with pulp necrosis and disappearence of pain on chewing, followed eventually by signs of apical periodontitis. An endodonticaly treated tooth may initially present with sensitivity and with a typical isolated narrow and tight periodontal pocket that is often inaccessible with a rigid metal probe and with no radiographic expression. Then, with advanced bone destruction of the cortical plate(s), it may be detectable on radiographs, as a radiolucency along the root or as a "halo." This occurs as soon as the extent of the cortical bone defect is larger than the silhouette of the root. This often represents a missed and delayed diagnosis.
