SP-16 Splinting of Traumatized Teeth: When, Why and How?

Splinting is one aspect of the initial/emergency treatment of dento-alveolar injuries. The aim of splinting procedures is to functionally fixate teeth and alveolar process fragments in their anatomically correct position, during the healing period. Splint rigidity and duration should be adapted, depending on the type and severity of the injury, by using different splinting techniques. The presentation will provide current guidelines for splinting traumatized teeth, supported by scientific data and interesting educational cases.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different splinting techniques and identify adequate splint types.
  •  Evaluate the type of injury and assign indicated splint types and durations, depending on the type of injury.
  •  Discuss current clinical best practice about splinting procedures, splint rigidity, splint extension and adhesive point dimension.

SP-17 Therapeutic Options for the Management of External Cervical Invasive Resorption

External Cervical Invasive Resorption is an uncommon type of root resorption that, when not detected and/or treated on time, may result in the loss of a tooth. In spite of multiple efforts, its etiology remains still not fully understood. The low prevalence of this type of resorption or the lack of symptoms in the early stages may complicate the diagnosis. Once diagnosed, several treatment options have been recommended. The development of new diagnostic tools (CBCT), magnification devices (Dental Operating Microscope) or the recent introduction of bioactive materials have broadened the therapeutic options to manage this type of resorption. This presentation will focus on the management of cervical root resorption lesions by an internal approach with or without additional surgical intervention. A critical assessment of CBCT pre-op scans, current classifications and prognosis will be included as well as numerous case reports and follow-ups.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  List the different types of ECIR and the predisposing factors.
  •  Describe the current therapeutic options for the treatment of ECIR.
  •  Discuss future directions for the treatment and/or prevention of ECIR.

SP-18 Diagnosis and Treatment of Pathological Resorptive Lesions: A Modern Approach

Pathological resorptive lesions always represent a challenge in terms of diagnosis and treatment. Modern tools can help the clinician to make a proper diagnosis and to know when to treat and how to treat. This presentation will discuss the etiology and pathophysiology, the diagnosis, the prognosis and the treatment choices of tooth resorptions. The advantage of new technologies such as CBCT will be shown through the presentation of several clinical cases. Restorative, conventional and surgical approaches will be addressed.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Explain the etiology and the pathophysiology of resorptive lesions.
  •  Diagnose pathological root resorptions.
  •  Discuss treatment options
