AAE Online CE
More than 300 AAE members, guests and corporate supporters filled the Ocean Reef Resort in Key Largo, Florida, October 22-24, 2015. The Insight Track: Contemporary Dilemmas in Endodontics addressed the specialty’s most divisive issues in a point/counterpoint format, allowing attendees to hear both sides of the argument from top speakers in the field, and draw their own conclusions on how to best treat their patients. The unique format allows you to expand your own perspectives while influencing the future of the specialty.
All of the available sessions listed below were recorded live at the Insight Track: Contemporary Dilemmas in Endodontics. The sessions that meet the CE eligibility criteria (please review complete details listed at the bottom of this page) have been posted with a CE test. In order to earn CE, you must view each presentation and pass the CE test.

Cracked and Fractured Teeth: Clinical and Research PerspectivesContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Louis H. Berman, D.D.S., F.A.C.D. & Anil Kishen, B.D.S., M.D.S., Ph.D. Fractured teeth, whether endodontically treated or not, are not an uncommon occurrence in clinical practice. As clinicians, it is imperative to recognize the clinical and radiographic parameters that may suggest a root fracture.
Irrigation/Biofilms UpdateProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Anil Kishen, B.D.S., M.D.S., Ph.D. Microbial-biofilms are surface-adherent consortium formed by dynamic communities of bacteria in response to environmental changes. This lecture will deliberate the factors governing the current root canal strategies both from microbiological and fluid dynamics perspectives.
Point/Counterpoint: Cone beam CT imaging - Worthwhile or Not for Patient Diagnosis?Product not yet rated Contains 3 Component(s)
Speakers: Nestor Cohenca, D.D.S., F.I.A.D.T. & Ernest W.N. Lam, D.M.D., M.Sc., Ph.D., F.R.C.D. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is gaining increasing popularity as part of the diagnostic armamentarium in many areas of dentistry, including endodontics. This session will discuss the merits of a subset of the many potential applications of CBCT imaging in endodontics.
Point/Counterpoint: One vs. Two Visit EndodonticsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Stephen Cohen, M.A., D.D.S. & Martin Trope, D.M.D. The case for one-visit complete endodontic therapy will be based entirely on citing current peer-reviewed literature showing that there is better disinfection, less pain and a better prognosis when the treatment is completed in one session. The case for two-visit endodontic therapy for teeth with apical periodontitis (only) will be based firstly on the fact that no acceptable literature comparing one vs two visit exists.
Point/Counterpoint: Regenerative Endodontics vs. ApexificationProduct not yet rated Contains 3 Component(s)
Speakers: Nestor Cohenca, D.D.S., F.I.A.D.T. & Anibal Diogenes, D.D.S., M.S., Ph. D. Although classical apexification remains a treatment option, pulp revascularization exploits the full potential for tissue ingrowth toward dentin-like tissue deposition and stronger roots able to withstand fracture. This presentation will discuss the importance of case selection and review the current evidence-based literature comparing the outcome and predictability of both therapies in immature teeth.
Point/Counterpoint: Minimally Invasive Endodontics vs. Conventional EndodonticsContains 3 Component(s)
Speakers: George A. Bruder, D.M.D. & Martin Trope, D.M.D. Endodontic success suggests a healthy peri-radicular periodontium while maintaining the tooth in function for the life of the patient. This session will examine how new techologies if used correctly can provide a root canal space that has minimal microbial load while still maintaining enough strength of the tooth to withstand functional stresses.
All speakers must disclose to the program audience any proprietary, financial or other personal interest of any nature of kind, in any product, service, source and/or company, or in any firm beneficially associated therewith that will be discussed or considered during their presentation. The AAE does not view the existence of these interests or uses as implying bias or decreasing the value to participants. The AAE, along with ADA CERP, feels that this disclosure is important for the participants to form their own judgment about each presentation. Please see each individual speaker's information within a session for disclosure information.
Speakers can select which components of their presentation they would like included on Endo On Demand, and as a result, some courses may only include a handout, audio, audio and handout, or have portions of their presentation omitted. Courses that have only a handout and/or audio do not include the online CE option. Courses with multiple speakers may have some portions omitted from the presentation if not all speakers give permission to have their content posted.
