OSC-9 Management Considerations for the Medically Complex PatientContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Bradford Johnson, D.D.S., M.H.P.E.| The goal of this presentation is to serve as a brief overview of common medical conditions that may require modification of your standard treatment protocol to ensure patient safety, with a special focus on non-surgical and surgical endodontic therapy.
SP-24 Your Roadmap to Predictable Outcomes: The Three Critical SkillsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: John West, D.D.S., M.S.D. |TThis presentation offers Three Critical Skills that I have used with success, and that I think will help you produce a better, more successful technical, professional and personal adventure. These Three Critical Skills provide a roadmap to guide you to experience what you value most on your endodontic journey. To paraphrase the exchange between Alice and the Cheshire cat in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: "If you don't know where you're going, any road'll take you there." Ready to hit the road to predictable outcomes
PS-10 The Five Essential Skills for Engaging Patients: Enhancing Your Capacity to Involve Patients in the Treatment ProcessProduct not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Brian DesRoches, M.B.A., M.Sc., Ph.D., L.M.F.T. Engaging patients -- from the French word “engagier," meaning "to attract the attention of" -- is the foundation for positively influencing patients and involving them in treatment decisions. Recent research in psycho-neurophysiology, specifically the Social Engagement System, points to five essential skills that are the pillars of this foundation. Simple, yet powerful in their effect, these skills will significantly enhance your capacity to engage patients in treatment decisions as well as reduce the anxiety that often accompanies treatment.
EP-13 Transitions in Endodontic PracticeContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Richard D. Archer, D.D.S., M.S., Sandra Madison, D.D.S., M.S., Clara M. Spatafore, D.D.S., M.S., Sean O. Lawson, D.D.S., M.S.D. A panel of speakers will discuss the types of transitions that can occur in an endodontic practice and the logistics that go along with the journey. Each speaker will present the road that they took to achieve their current positions, including the pros, cons and obstacles along the way.
EP-5 Office Management of Anxious PatientsProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Leesa Morrow, Ph.D., J.D., L.P. Focus will be placed on identifying generalized anxiety disorders in the dental patient. Participants will be given practical information about ways to manage anxious patients so that dental procedures can proceed without excessive delay.
SP-29 Regenerative Endodontics: What Does the Evidence Show? & SP-30 Revitalization of Open Apex Teeth with Apical Periodontitis Using a Collagen-Hydroxyapatite ScaffoldProduct not yet rated Contains 9 Component(s), Includes Credits
SP-29: Speakers: Asma A. Khan, B.D.S., Ph.D, Jennifer L. Gibbs, M.S., D.D.S., Ph.D. In spite of the promising potential of regenerative endodontic treatment, there are many uncertainties about case selection, treatment protocols and clinical outcomes. This session will cover the present evidence on how this treatment option is perceived and practiced, on the different treatment protocols and on the current evidence from retrospective and prospective studies. SP-30: Speakers: Jerome J. Cymerman, D.M.D., Alan J. Nevins, D.D.S. An enhanced revision of the endodontic revitalization technique to treat immature teeth with apical periodontitis will be presented. This includes the addition of a collagen-hydroxyapatite scaffold to the currently established revitalization technique, for previously untreated and retreatment cases.
SP-27 How Is Apical Periodontitis Influenced by Systemic Health and Medications? The Missing Link & SP-28 Mechanisms of Apical Periodontitis: Emergence of Epigenetic RegulatorsContains 9 Component(s), Includes Credits
SP-27: Speaker: Elisabetta Cotti, D.D.S., M.S. It is widely-known that a correct endodontic treatment should take care of endodontic infection and promote healing of apical periodontitis. The general health of the patient affected by apical periodontitis, the medications taken, and the host predisposing factors, like genetics, have been very seldom considered when discussing the treatment and prognosis of apical periodontitis. SP-28: Speaker: Mo Kang, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D. Apical periodontitis (AP) continues to present challenge for endodontic therapies. This lecture will summarize the current knowledge of the mechanisms underlying AP and present the emerging role of epigenetic regulators that determine inflammatory and immune responses.
SP-10 Endodontic Disease and Systemic Disease: Association versus Causation, SP-11 Meta-Analysis, Endodontics and Current Controversies: Are Meta-Analyses the Most Reliable Evidences in Endodontics?, and SP-12 Apical Extrusion of Debris During Root CanalProduct not yet rated Contains 13 Component(s), Includes Credits
SP-10: Speaker: Ashraf F. Fouad, B.D.S., D.D.S., M.S. A number of epidemiological and mechanistic studies have described statistically significant relationships between endodontic and systemic diseases. This presentation will review the available scientific data in this area, and outline how this information can be used clinically to advise patients and guide treatment planning. SP-11: Speaker: Homayon Berenji, D.D.S., B.D.S. It has been estimated that healthcare professionals would need to read an average of 17-20 original articles every day to attempt to keep abreast of their field. Meta-analyses have been advocated as a way to keep up with current literature, but what is a meta-analysis and is there any criticism about it? SP-12: Speaker: Hugo R. Munoz, D.D.S., M.S. Symptomatic apical periodontitis is defined as an acute inflammation of the periodontal ligament. This condition may be a consequence of root canal treatment due to operator-dependent factors such as chemical, mechanical or bacterial injury during root canal preparation where debris containing dentin, necrotic pulp tissue and bacteria are introduced into the periodical tissues, constituting a potential cause of periodontal ligament inflammation.
SP-21 Endodontics and Systemic Diseases: What You Need to Know TodayProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Elisabetta Cotti, D.D.S., M.S., In the present years there has been a growing concern about how endodontic infection may affect systemic health. It is important to understand which are the mechanism by which endodontic infection may influence systemic health and which are the preventive measures we can adopt.
