SP-11 Invasive Cervical Resorption: 3-D Diagnosis and Treatment Perspectives

ICR is a relatively uncommon form of external root resorption. Clinical, radiologic and pathologic features of invasive cervical resorption provide the basis for a clinical classification, which is of use both in treatment planning, and for comparative clinical research. Treatment, where indicated, should aim at the inactivation of all resorbing tissue and the reconstitution of the resorptive defect either by the placement of a suitable filing material or by the use of biological systems. Extension of the lesion, ability of the clinician to approach it and treat it determine the prognosis. The lesion cannot be accurately detected with Periapical X-ray films (PA). Advance in diagnostic tools, especially the use of cone beam computed tomography helped a lot in determining the prognosis of the treatment since its high accuracy shows the extension of the lesion. Also, advance in material and armamentarium helped in performing the restorative procedure successfully and predictably.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Determine the extensions of the lesion utilizing CBCT.
  •  Describe and discuss the treatment and prognosis.
  •  Practice treatment with a proper choice of material and technique.

SP-12 Alternative Treatments for External Cervical Resorption

External Cervical Resorption (ECR) is one of the least understood of all dental lesions. The past literature can be confusing because ECR has been referred to by many names, and is often confused with internal resorption. However, more current research, along with modern diagnostic techniques, have caused a more frequent necessity for treatment. Dr. Goeffrey Heithersay has outlined a commonly used treatment protocol utilizing 90% trichloracetic acid (TCA). This presentation will discuss other materials/techniques that can be considered for the successful management of ECR cases. The treatment of an advanced Class III lesion will be presented with a 13-year follow-up.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Create education methods for the patient of the necessity of beginning treatment when the patient has no noticeable symptoms.
  •  Plan the use CBCT radiographic scans and the Heithersay Classification to determine whether nonsurgical, surgical, or a combination of both, treatment modalities are necessary to achieve a predictable result.
  •  Use less invasive materials and techniques to remove the ECR lesion and retain as much dentin as possible, therefore maintaining the strength of the tooth.

I joined the Endodontic Devision,RDS Department since 2009. I received my Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree from King Saud University, KSA in 2006, and then achieved my MSc in Oral Sciences from Queen Mary University of London 2009. I spent 3 years in the United States studying clinical Endodontics to get two certificates: 1) Advance Program in Endodontics for International Student from New York University 2012, and, 2) Residency Program in Endodontics from The University of Southern California 2014. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics which I achieved recently on 2015. Dr.Mashyakhy enjoys teaching undergrad , post-grad students and carrying hands-on workshops using Endodontics Microscope to spread knowledge and awareness of Endodontics current concepts and practice.

John J. Stropko, D.D.S.

Dr. John J. Stropko received his DDS from Indiana University in 1964. After spending two years in the Air Force, he practiced Restorative Dentistry until 1987 when he was accepted into the Postgraduate Endodontic Program at Boston University. In 1989, he received a Certificate for Endodontics and was in private practice until December 2011. Dr. Stropko has performed numerous live surgical and nonsurgical MicroEndodontic demonstrations and is still very active teaching, writing, and lecturing about MicroEndodontics. Dr. Stropko has been a visiting clinical instructor at PERF, an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Boston University, an Assistant Professor of Graduate Clinical Endodontics at Loma Linda University, on the endodontic faculty at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, and a co-founder of Clinical Endodontic Seminars.
