SP-39 The Endodontics Instructional Mobile Application: From Concept to Execution

An enhanced revision of the endodontic revitalization technique to treat immature teeth with apical periodontitis will be presented. This includes the addition of a collagen-hydroxyapatite scaffold to the currently established revitalization technique, for previously untreated and retreatment cases. Two-dimensional digital radiographs and cone beam computed tomography were used pre-operatively and at follow-up visits to analyze healing. Routine findings include healing of periapical radiolucencies and a diffuse radio-opacity developing within the coronal portions of canal spaces. Root development with root lengthening occurred in one immature maxillary premolar that had no prior treatment. The technique of adding a collagen-hydroxyapatite scaffold to the existing revitalization protocol results in substantial hard tissue repair. This may leave teeth more fully developed and less likely to fracture. Case reports will be presented and the technique of incorporating a collagen hydroxyapatite scaffold will be reviewed.Learning ObjectivesDescribe a brief history of revitalization procedures.Practice placing a collagen-hydroxyapatite scaffold within the current revascularization technique.Describe 2-D radiographic and CBCT interpretation of results related to histology of early animal studies.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Incorporate software applications into existing course content.
  •  Assess the efficacy of their software solutions.
  •  Integrate mobile application technology into their curriculum.

SP-40 Evidence-Based Management of Dento-Alveolar Trauma

Dento-alveolar trauma is an unfortunate event occurring to patients as a result of accidents or sport-related injuries. Even though most of these injuries happen to young children, adults are also affected. Traumatic dental injuries represent a complex diagnostic problem with a multitude of treatment options to choose from. Wound healing process must be well understood by the clinician, since even minor changes in a treatment procedure may have an impact upon the quality of healing. This lecture will present various types of trauma cases in children and adults. Management, prognosis and treatment options according to established guidelines will be presented.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  •  Identify proper historical review and perform clinical and radiographic examination.
  •  Practice various types of traumatic injuries treatment to permanent teeth.
  •  Produce long-term follow up care for these patients.

Keith R. Boyer, D.D.S

Dr. Keith Boyer is an assistant professor at Western University of Health Sciences and a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. He received his B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of the Pacific in Stockton in 2005. He attended dental school in San Francisco and got his D.D.S. from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 2008. He then earned his specialty certificate in endodontics from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 2010. After residency, he remained in Philadelphia to practice endodontics and teach at the university. Since moving back to his home state, he has practiced in both Northern and Southern California. Dr. Boyer was drawn back into the academic environment because of his desire for continuous learning and to share that knowledge with colleagues and future dentists. He has been teaching pre-clinical and clinical endodontics full-time at WesternU since 2013.

Alexander Lee, D.M.D.

Dr. Lee is an associate professor at Western University and the Coordinator of Dental Informatics. He was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. After attending the University of California, Davis for his Bachelor of Sciences in Biological Sciences (Evolution and Ecology), he attained his DMD from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 2009. While in private practice in Lodi, CA, he devoted his time to providing dental care to the underserved by volunteering at numerous events organized by the Sacramento District Dental Society and helped start a free dental clinic in Hiram Johnson High School. His emphasis in teaching has been focused on diagnostic sciences and dental informatics.
