SP-35 Past, Present and Future: A Look at the Evolution of our Specialty and What the Future HoldsProduct not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Speaker: Markus Haapasalo, D.D.S., PhD|A short introduction to "level of evidence in endodontic research" will be given. The lecture will continue with a description of the building blocks for success in endodontic treatment, and how these have changed (or not!) during the decades.
NS-1 Importance of Obturating Lateral CanalsContains 2 Component(s)
Speakers: Arnaldo Castellucci, D.D.S., M.D., Ghassan Yared, D.D.S., M.Sc. The goal of endodontic therapy is to clean and shape the root canal system and to obliterate all existing communications between the root canal and the attachment apparatus. We know that these communications work as “portals of exit” for toxins in the chronic phase and bacteria in the acute phase.
SP-35 Removing Separated Instruments: Techniques and the Decision-Making Process, SP-36 A New Surgical Technique to Remove Fractured Files from the Apical Third of Curved Root Canals Based on the Apical Third Conservation, and SP-37 Removal of and CleaninContains 13 Component(s), Includes Credits
SP-35: In the event of endodontic instrument separation, the endodontist has to be prepared to manage this difficult clinical situation. The clinical decision should be based on a thorough knowledge of the success rates for each treatment option and the risks associated with them. SP-36: Speaker: André G. Machado, D.D.S. Removing fractured files below the curvature of root canals can be extremely inaccessible, causing great wear and even deviation while trying to remove it, especially in highly curved roots. In this context, a new proposal was designed, based on the removal of fractured instruments by surgical access without removing the apical third or promoting excessive wear. SP-37: Speaker: Asgeir Sigurdsson, D.D.S., M.S. Separated instruments in root canals have the potential to compromise endodontic treatment as they prevent access to the apex and thereby impede thorough cleaning, shaping and sealing of the root canal system. Removing or bypassing a separated instrument in the apical third, especially curved roots, is almost impossible.
SP-39 From Gutta-Percha to Bioceramics: An Evidence-Based AnalysisContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Michael Marmo, D.M.D. Bioceramic calcium silicate-based sealers are the next generation of root canal obturation materials. As root-end filling materials, bioceramics have proven biocompatibility, osteoconductivity and excellent handling properties, but do they work as well as an obturation material?
NS-2 Preserving What Matters: New Technologies and Approaches to Dentin ConservationProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: George A. Bruder, D.M.D. This course is designed for endodontists who want to incorporate the latest science-based treatment and enhance their knowledge of dentin conservation and restoring endodontically treated teeth. Root canal treatment is a key way to save teeth that otherwise might have to be extracted. However, the impact of traditional RCT techniques can weaken teeth, leaving them susceptible to subsequent fracture. This course explores the implications of recent research into endodontic access and instrumentation. The attendee will learn how to conform to the natural morphology and disinfect the canal while retaining more dentin. These techniques allow the body a chance to heal itself, while at the same time lowering the risk of post-endodontic stress-related tooth fractures.
