NS-12 Difficult Cases. Difficult Decisions! An interactive case-based treatment planning sessionContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Adham A. Azim; Scott L..Doyle, D.D.S., M.S.;Mohamed Fayad, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D.; Philip Michaelson, MS, DMD| In this interactive case-based learning session, the audience will engage directly with the speakers through the Q&A polling feature and get to make a decision on the best treatment plan possible for each case presented. Our speakers, with their years of experience as clinicians and educators, will then discuss their decision-making process in managing the various challenges using surgical and/or non-surgical approaches. They will also review the various factors that should be considered prior to initiating treatment, as well as the prognosis expected, based on the best level of evidence available today.
NS-15 Cracked Teeth: New Perspectives on Diagnosis, CBCT Imaging, Treatment Strategies, and OutcomesContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Mohamed Fayad, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D.; Matthew C. Davis, D.D.S.| This evidence-based presentation will address the classification and diagnosis of different types of cracks and the role of CBCT imaging in these cases, as well as the prognosis and treatment outcomes of endodontically treated cracked teeth.
SP-34 Evaluating the Restorability of Endodontically Treated Teeth: Do Dogma and Fact Agree?Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Speaker:Jon Irelan, D.D.S., M.S., M.S.|This seminar is geared toward reviewing and critically analyzing classic and current literature that can guide us as clinicians to make more intelligent decisions in our treatment planning, as well as allowing us to better inform our patients and referring dentists of the clinical situation.
SP-3 Your Psychic Power: The Value of Intuition in Endodontic DecisionsProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Karl Woodmansey, D.D.S. Endodontists, like all humans, have highly evolved sensory-perception abilities. Endodontists use these senses for their patient interactions and the diagnosis and treatment of endodontic diseases. This presentation suggests that unrecognized intuitive senses may contribute significantly and unrecognizably to these processes. Although human intuition is a mysterious and powerful phenomenon, this presentation reviews the scientific basis of intuition and details possible methods of enhancing one’s intuitive powers. The presenter encourages endodontists to become more aware of the potential for these intuitive powers to exist in their own behaviors, and to embrace them as possibly enhancing their patients’ endodontic treatment outcomes.
SP-5 Thinking Outside the Box: Beyond Our Routine NSRCT, Retx and RootContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Rachele Luciano, D.M.D., F.R.C.D.(C) This presentation will discuss treatment options that are within the realm of endodontics but that are not routinely performed by specialists. Most endodontic practices, with few exceptions, limit their treatment options to nonsurgical root canal treatments, retreatments and some root-end resection surgeries. Literature review and case presentations on pulp capping, apexogenesis, apexification, revascularization, invasive cervical root resorption repair, autotransplantation, decompression, decoronation and trauma management will be presented. These cases differ from our usual treatments as endodontists and provide a service for our patients. These non-routine cases also provide personal satisfaction as clinicians and are impressive cases to present to referring doctors.
S-4 Retreat or Surgery: Decision Planning DilemmasContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: George A. Bruder, D.MD & David J. Landwehr, D.D.S., M.S. There currently is significant controversy over the preferred treatment choice for persistent apical disease – orthograde retreatment or apical surgery? While both procedures are frequently applied for management of post-treatment apical periodontitis, case selection may be the most important aspect of overall treatment success.
D-1 Looking Through the “Retrospective Scope” - How I Would Have Done It Differently (Nonsurgical Cases)Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Kirk A. Coury, D.D.S., M.S., William J. Nudera, D.D.S., M.S., Denis E. Simon, D.D.S., M.S., Kenneth J. Zucker, D.D.S., M.S. If correcting a clinical problem were as easy as clicking “undo” on a keyboard, dentistry would be simple. This presentation is designed showcase treatment approaches that resulted in less than ideal outcomes and how these cases were managed.
S-8 Presurgical CBCT Anatomic Evaluation: Implications for Surgical Treatment PlanningProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Mohamed I. Fayad, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D. Cone beam volumetric tomography (CBVT) 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 the modern endodontic practice.
S-6 Restorability and Treatment of Compromised Teeth: Crown Lengthening, Forced Eruption and Utilizing a Hopeless Tooth in Implant DentistryContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Huan Su, D.D.S., M.S. Treatment planning is a critical yet inexact aspect of clinical dentistry. On an everyday basis clinicians are faced with the dilemma of maintaining a compromised tooth (or teeth) versus extraction and replacement with an implant-supported prosthesis.
S-9 Endodontic Microsurgery A-Z (Part 2)Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speakers: Spyros Floratos, D.M.D., Paula A. Mendez-Montalvo, D.D.S. Endodontic surgery is a highly successful procedure given the appropriate case selection and the use of modern microsurgical techniques and armamentarium. Using an evidence-based approach, this presentation will detail all steps of modern endodontic microsurgery as needed by the clinician, including presurgical and intra-operative hemostasis, soft tissue management, osteotomy, root-end resection and preparation, root-end filling with bioceramic filling materials, as well as wound closure and postoperative care.
