S-7 Factors Affecting Outcomes of Endodontic MicrosurgeryProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Frank C. Setzer, D.M.D., Ph.D., M.S. Hardly any technique in dentistry has changed so much over the last years as endodontic surgery. This lecture discusses the factors affecting the outcome of endodontic surgery, including patient-related issues, such as medical history, dental history or condition of the tooth, as well as techniques and new materials.
NS-14 Present and Future in Endodontic DisinfectionContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Roeland J.G. De Moor, D.D.S., Ph.D., M.Sc. The main steps involved in root canal disinfection are chemomechanical procedures and intracanal medication. To optimize bacterial elimination during or following chemomechanical procedures, several strategies, devices and substances have been introduced.
S-9 Treatment Considerations for the Medically Complex Endodontic Surgery PatientContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Bradford R. Johnson, D.D.S., M.H.P.E. The goal of this presentation is to serve as a brief overview of medical conditions and medications that may require treatment modification to ensure safe surgical treatment. The presentation will focus primarily on cardiovascular disease, selection of local anesthetic, anticoagulant therapy and hemostasis, diabetes, kidney and liver disease, immunosuppression, history of antiresorptive agent drug therapy, prosthetic joint replacement and relevant drug interactions.
SP-35 Removing Separated Instruments: Techniques and the Decision-Making Process, SP-36 A New Surgical Technique to Remove Fractured Files from the Apical Third of Curved Root Canals Based on the Apical Third Conservation, and SP-37 Removal of and CleaninContains 13 Component(s), Includes Credits
SP-35: In the event of endodontic instrument separation, the endodontist has to be prepared to manage this difficult clinical situation. The clinical decision should be based on a thorough knowledge of the success rates for each treatment option and the risks associated with them. SP-36: Speaker: André G. Machado, D.D.S. Removing fractured files below the curvature of root canals can be extremely inaccessible, causing great wear and even deviation while trying to remove it, especially in highly curved roots. In this context, a new proposal was designed, based on the removal of fractured instruments by surgical access without removing the apical third or promoting excessive wear. SP-37: Speaker: Asgeir Sigurdsson, D.D.S., M.S. Separated instruments in root canals have the potential to compromise endodontic treatment as they prevent access to the apex and thereby impede thorough cleaning, shaping and sealing of the root canal system. Removing or bypassing a separated instrument in the apical third, especially curved roots, is almost impossible.
SP-21 Evaluation of Efficacy of a New Tridimensional Instrumentation System in the Reduction of the Bacterial Load in the Root Canal System and SP-33 Systematic Approach Techniques to Find Difficult and Calcified CanalsContains 9 Component(s), Includes Credits
SP-21: Speaker: Mario F. Leon, D.D.S. A newly designed rotary file is available (XP Endo) for which the manufacturer states that, based on the shape memory principles of NiTi alloy and its capacity to expand, the new tridimensional instrumentation system is able to treat root canals with highly complex morphologies. The instrument has more contact area with the benefit of keeping the original shape of the root canal. SP-33: Speaker: Andrei Berdichewsky, D.D.S. Finding all canals on the root canal system is a key factor for the outcome of the endodontic treatment. In this presentation, different techniques and clinical tips to help clinicians to find difficult and calcified canals while preserving dentin structure will be discussed in detail.
NS-2 The Tools of RetreatmentContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Carlos A.F. Murgel, D.D.S. This presentation will focus on the tools and key concepts of retreatment that will allow you to grow and maximize your ability to retreat complex endodontic cases. At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to diagnose more effectively, develop sophisticated treatment plans, use specific tools to achieve superior clinical results and avoid buying countless unnecessary gadgets.
Assessment of Root Canal Filling Removal Effectiveness Using Micro–computed Tomography: A Systematic ReviewContains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits
Authors: Giampiero Rossi-Fedele, D.D.S.; MClinDent, Ph.D.; Hany Mohamed Aly Ahmed, B.D.S., H.D.D. (Endo), Ph.D. The removal of obturation materials from the root canal system is a primary objective in root canal retreatment procedures. This systematic review aims to discuss the effectiveness of different instrumentation procedures in removing root-canal filling materials assessed by micro-computed tomography.
Removal of Calcium Hydroxide from Artificial Grooves in Straight Root Canals: Sonic Activation Using EDDY Versus Passive Ultrasonic Irrigation and XPendo FinisherProduct not yet rated Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits
Authors: David Donnermeyer, Dr.med.dent., Hendrik Wyrsch, DMD, Sebastian Bürklein, PD, Dr.med.dent., Edgar Schäfer, Prof. Dr.med.dent The aim of the present study was to compare sonic activation using EDDY (VDW, Munich, Germany), passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI), and mechanical activation using the XPendo Finisher (FKG Dentaire, La Chaux-des-Fonds, Switzerland) for the removal of calcium hydroxide from artificial grooves in straight root canals.
