SP-36 Web-based Survey in Regenerative Endodontics: What is Next?

Product not yet rated

CE Hours: 1.0

Description:Regenerate Endodontics is the innovative field in Endodontics that seeks to promote a biological root growth to save immature necrotic teeth. Regenerative Endodontic Procedures (REPs) are still being investigated, as multiple individual factors can interfere with the successful outcome. The AAE strongly supports clinicians and researchers to develop new strategies in regenerative endodontics. The Regenerative Endodontic Committee created a web-based survey which was offered to AAE members to share their treatment protocols for immature necrotic teeth. This presentation will offer to the assistants an overview of the data collected from more than 200 participants. 125 complete cases with good quality follow-up images were collected and 69 cases with at least 6 months of follow-up were analyzed. Research based on web data survey is a powerful tool to overcome some of the challenges in clinical research. In this presentation, committee members will discuss the advantages and disadvantages encountered during the collection and analysis of this data. The committee also wants to recognize the survey’s participants for their important contribution to future research in Regenerative Endodontics.

  • List most common protocols used by clinicians in REP in terms of irrigants, instrumentation, intracanal medicaments, materials used, etc.
  • Describe what the most predictable factors are to consider when selecting your patients for a REP.
  • Recognize the importance of the web-based survey to overcome the challenges, such as a significant sample size, to perform a relevant clinical research.
