Cracking the Cracked Teeth Code Utilizing CBCT Imaging: A New Perspective On Diagnosis, CBCT Imaging, Treatment Strategies, And Outcomes
Live Webinar: January 9. 2020 at 6:00 pm CT
Description: A lack of consensus exists among dentists and endodontists on cracked teeth. Accurate clinical evaluation, imaging and diagnosis is paramount to properly treatment planning cracked teeth. With the resurgence of the philosophy of saving compromised teeth over extraction, and our patients’ desire to save their teeth, the question remains: “Which cracked teeth should be treated and which cracked teeth should be extracted?” Applying the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches, dentists can now use minimally invasive biomimetic techniques to provide restorations that come close to functionally and biomechanically mimicking the original, healthy state of a tooth. This evidence-based presentation will address the classification and diagnosis of different types of cracks and the role of CBCT imaging in these cases, as well as the prognosis and changes in treatment protocols and outcomes of cracked teeth.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Describe the role of CBCT imaging in identifying cracked tooth types, extent of the fractures, and early bone pattern changes associated with cracked teeth.
- Explain the prognosis and outcomes studies related to treatment and management of cracked teeth and vertical root fractures.
- Apply the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches for restoration of cracked teeth.

Dr. Fayad received his DDS in 1985 from the Collage of Dentistry, Cairo University. Dr. Fayad received his Master’s in Oral Sciences in 1994 from the University of Buffalo at NewYork. He received his PhD in 1996 as a joint supervision between University of Buffalo at New York and Cairo University. He received his Endodontic training at the college of Dentistry at UIC. Currently he is the director of endodontic research, and a clinical associate professor in the Endodontic department at College of Dentistry at UIC, dividing his time between teaching, research, intra-and extra-mural continuing education and private practice. He currently serves on the Scientific Advisory and Manuscript Review Panels of the Journal of Endodontics, and Evidence Based Endodontics Journal. He served on the AAE Research and Scientific Affairs Committee and co-chaired AAE/AAOMR committee drafting the joint position statement on CBCT (2015). He has numerous publications and chapters in peer reviewed journals and textbooks (Pathways of the pulp) and (Contemporary surgical Endodontics). He is the co-editor of the CBCT text book (3-D Imaging in Endodontics: A new Era in diagnosis and treatment) by Springer (2016). He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and gave numerous presentations nationally and internationally.
