SP-43 Management of Acute Odontogenic Pain in the Opioid Overdose Era: Differentiating Drug Seeking From Analgesic NeedProduct not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Speaker: Asma A. Khan, B.D.S., Ph.D; Raymond A. Dionne, DDS, MS, PhD| TThis program will summarize the current status of opioid prescribing for acute odontogenic pain, suggest therapeutic strategies to alleviate pain without an opioid, and review guidelines for prescribing opioid combination analgesics for dental outpatients. A draft checklist for prescribing opioids for acute dental pain by ED staff will be presented for review and revision by the attendees for dissemination to the emergency medicine community.
NS-4 Persistent Pain Following Endodontic Treatment: What Do We Know and What Can We Do About It?Contains 2 Component(s)
Alan S. Law, D.D.S., Ph.D. Persistent pain is known to occur in some patients following endodontic treatment. This presentation will discuss the frequency at which persistent pain occurs, potential causes for persistent pain and opportunities for endodontists to participate in a large-scale, practice-based study designed to determine which patient-, tooth-, and treatment-related factors may be associated with persistent pain.
SP-21 Pulp Regeneration: How Far Have We Come? & SP-22 Dentoalveolar Trauma and the Pulp: Regeneration, Repair and ReplacementContains 9 Component(s), Includes Credits
SP-21: Speaker: Sumin Lee, D.D.S., M.S.D., D.Sc. Since the discovery of stem cells in the dental pulp and the periradicular tissues, research in regenerative endodontics has grown exponentially, promising that stem-cell-based therapies have the potential to improve our conventional endodontic treatment. This presentation will review the perspectives in the field of dental pulp tissue-engineering. SP-22: Speaker: Christine Berthold, D.D.S., M.Sc., Ph.D. Dento-alveolar trauma can cause reversible or irreversible damage to the involved tooth structure and surrounding tissues. Based on interesting clinical cases, the different pulpal conditions, found after dento-alveolar trauma, will be discussed including treatment approaches, biological background and advantages/disadvantages of the various techniques.
NS-29 Diagnostic Dilemmas: A Clinician's Perspective on UncertaintyProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: David J. Landwehr, D.D.S., M.S. At the conclusion, participants should be able to: List the characteristics and clinical features that distinguish non-odontogenic pain from that of endodontic origin. Use a systematic method to formulate a differential diagnosis of radiographic lesions found in the periradicular area. Explain the classification systems of orofacial pain to facilitate appropriate management.
PB-10 Pain Control for the 'Hot' Mandibular Molar: The Endodontist's DilemmaContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Stanley F. Malamed, D.D.S. , This program will discuss WHY we encounter problems providing effective pain control in situations of acute infection and HOW we can best manage the situation. As fear is a big component of pain perception and response, we will look at various techniques of moderate sedation and their application in these situations.
How to Diagnose and Manage Persistent Pain Following Root Canal TreatmentContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Donald R. Nixdorf, D.D.S., M.S. This lecture reviews current advances in diagnosis and management of non-odontogenic orofacial pain. It will cover the differential diagnosis of orofacial pain, evidence regarding persistent pain following root canal treatment and strategies to address such pain.
NS-11 Nonendodontic Pain: Recognition and its ManagementContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Steven Graff-Radford, D.D.S., Pain in the trigeminal nerve distribution not caused by the dental structures may refer to the oral cavity, making the diagnosis difficult for the dentist. This presentation will discuss how pain refers to the oral cavity, what the mechanisms are that cause it and how it can be assessed.
A “3D” Approach for Treating Acute Pain (Winter 2015) and Treatment Planning: Retention of the Natural Dentition and the Replacement of Missing Teeth (Spring 2015)Contains 7 Component(s), Includes Credits
Author of a 3D Approach: Kenneth M. Hargreaves, D.D.S., Ph.D, This issue outlines an effective strategy for pain management based on diagnosis, treatment and medication. Author of Treatment Planning: Scott L. Doyle, D.D.S., M.S. This issue reviews treatment options for the retention of the natural dentition and the replacement of missing teeth.
Outcome of Direct Pulp Capping with Mineral Trioxide Aggregate: A Prospective StudyContains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits
Authors: Miguel Seruca Marques, D.D.S., Paul R. Wesselink, D.D.S., Ph.D., Hagay Shemesh, D.M.D., Ph.D. The aim of this experimental study was to assess the outcome of direct pulp capping with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) after complete excavation of caries in permanent dentition with a 2-visit treatment protocol.
Micromorphology of the Dental Pulp Is Highly Preserved in Cancer Patients Who Underwent Head and Neck RadiotherapyProduct not yet rated Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits
Authors: Karina Morais Faria, D.D.S., M.Sc.; Thais Bianca Brandao, D.D.S., M.Sc.; Ana Carolina Prado Ribeiro, D.D.S., Ph.D.; Adriele Ferreira Gouvea Vasconcellos, D.D.S., Ph.D.; Icaro Thiago de Carvalho, M.D.; Fernando Freire de Arruda, M.D.; Gilberto Castro Junior, M.D., Ph.D.; Vanessa Cristina Gross, D.D.S.; Oslei Paes Almeida, D.D.S., Ph.D.; Marcio Ajudarte Lopes, D.D.S., Ph.D.; Alan Roger Santos-Silva, D.D.S., Ph.D. Teeth are often included in the radiation field during head and neck radiotherapy, and recent clinical evidence suggests that dental pulp is negatively affected by the direct effects of radiation, leading to impaired sensitivity of the dental pulp. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the direct effects of radiation on the microvasculature, innervation, and extracellular matrix of the dental pulp of patients who have undergone head and neck radiotherapy.
