S-10 CBCT in Endodontic Surgery: Treatment Planning & 3-D Healing Assessment

4.75 (4 votes)

CE Hours: 1.5

Course Description:

Three-dimensional cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging provides the endodontist with superior radiographic visualization of the tooth and its surrounding periradicular structures. Utilization of 3-D CBCT imaging has a specific impact on the pretreatment assessment and planning process associated with endodontic microsurgery, as well as the posttreatment evaluation of treatment outcome. This session will demonstrate the CBCT imaging evaluation process used to assess the tooth and surrounding structures. Then, utilizing a case-based lecture format this session will cover the benefits of CBCT imaging when endodontic microsurgery is being considered as a treatment option, and once surgery is decided upon, how the imaging can facilitate procedural execution. Once surgical treatment has been performed, this session will cover the impact of the 3-D imaging on outcomes assessment to allow the practitioner to make an accurate judgement regarding a case's radiographic healing process.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Establish an efficient process for thorough CBCT imaging evaluation to obtain a clear understanding of the information this tool provides.
  • Understand the benefits of CBCT imaging for the selection of endodontic microsurgery as a treatment option, and its aid in facilitating the surgical procedure.
  • Recognize the impact of CBCT imaging on outcomes assessment and how to properly judge the post-treatment healing surgical cases.
