CE Credits: 1.5

Course Description:   Cone beam volumetric tomography is a diagnostic imaging modality that provides high-quality, accurate, three-dimensional representations of the osseous elements of the maxillofacial skeleton. CBVT has great potential to become a valuable tool in modern endodontic microsurgery. Different applications of CBVT in diagnosis, treatment planning and long-term outcome evaluation of periapical surgery will be reviewed. Video footage of clinical cases will be utilized to demonstrate the 3-D scan evaluation as well as the surgical procedures for cases involving vital structures and cases where bone grafting is indicated.  

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the importance of CBVT information in presurgical assessment, case selection and treatment planning.
  • Utilize the appropriate Guided Bone Regeneration products as bone grafts and membranes in endodontic/periodontal and marginal defect cases when indicated.
  • Utilize the CBVT information to identify and manage cases involving vital structure (maxillary sinus, inferior alveolar, mental and nasopalatine bundle).
