  • The Realities of the Specialist Relationship Today

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    CE: 1.0 

    Description: Referral relationships are not what they used to be. Particularly given our current challenges in navigating the pandemic. There are those with whom you have a deep and loyal relationship, and then there are those that seem to want the world, refer poorly and their loyalty seems to change with the passing wind. There are even those who send you their loved ones yet somehow do not refer to you their regular patients. There are many competing pressures today. Corporate entities that keep everything in house, the debt of the GP and other economic pressures that influence the GP to place their own implants, as well as itinerant specialists. How do you compete in this environment and thrive?

  • Revisiting Behavior Guidance for the Young Endodontic Patient

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    CE: 1.0 

    Description:  With advancements in endodontic therapies and materials, younger patients may be seen in the endodontic office for vital pulp therapy and regenerative endodontic procedures. With changing parenting styles and patient expectations, endodontists may face challenges in managing these patients during treatment. The goal of this presentation will be to address how the parent/child relationship has changed and how to manage expectations for parents/caregivers during the course of endodontic care. Non-pharmacologic behavior guidance techniques will be reviewed as the majority of endodontists may not have access to sedation armamentarium. Strategies to easily and effectively implement these behavior guidance techniques will be addressed in order to alleviate the endodontist’s potential anxiety in managing pediatric patients.

    At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

    • Evaluate critical first impressions in patient and parental behaviors which may result in behavior challenges during endodontic treatment
    • Discuss how parenting styles have changed in recent years and how societal norms influence dental treatments
    • Apply behavior guidance techniques within the context of endodontic therapy and be able to create a more positive interaction with pediatric patients

Treatment is complex, time-consuming, expensive and requires a multidisciplinary approach. This presentation will discuss the current AAE guidelines, with emphasis on current evidence-based literature supporting therapeutic modifications, as well as new philosophies to be considered for future guidelines. 

    At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

    • Demonstrate familiarity with dento-alveolar traumatic injuries and their complications.

  • Progress of Conservative/Regenerative Endodontics

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    CE: 1.0 

    Description: This presentation will review the progress of regenerative endodontics. The definition of regenerative endodontics will be clarified, as will be the term “revitalization” treatment. There are two categories of clinical approaches to regain vitalization of pulp. One is revitalization or also termed revascularization, which does not involve the delivery of processed stem cells into the canals. On the other hand, stem cell-based therapy involves implanting processed stem cells into the root canal space. This approach has shown the regeneration of pulp- and dentin-like tissues in the canal space from animal and human clinical trial studies, suggesting potential practice of true “regenerative endodontics” in the future. The various animal and human clinical studies have shown that the tissues developed in revitalization/revascularization procedures are fibrous connective tissue, some resembling periodontal ligament, not pulp-like, and the mineral tissue as cementum-like or bone, not dentin-like. One outcome regarding revitalization treatment is canal space obliteration by calcification, which accounts for a high percentage of such cases. 

    At the conclusion, participants will be able to: 

    • Describe the definition of “conservative endodontics” and revitalization/revascularization procedures.
    • Describe the definition of “regenerative endodontics.”
    • Describe the progress of “regenerative endodontics” in humans.

  • Cracking the Cracked Teeth Code Utilizing CBCT Imaging: A New Perspective On Diagnosis, CBCT Imaging, Treatment Strategies, And Outcomes

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Live Webinar: January 9. 2020 at 6:00 pm CT

    CE: 1.0 

    Description: A lack of consensus exists among dentists and endodontists on cracked teeth. Accurate clinical evaluation, imaging and diagnosis is paramount to properly treatment planning cracked teeth. With the resurgence of the philosophy of saving compromised teeth over extraction, and our patients’ desire to save their teeth, the question remains: “Which cracked teeth should be treated and which cracked teeth should be extracted?” Applying the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches, dentists can now use minimally invasive biomimetic techniques to provide restorations that come close to functionally and biomechanically mimicking the original, healthy state of a tooth. 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 changes in treatment protocols and outcomes of cracked teeth.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

    • Describe the role of CBCT imaging in identifying cracked tooth types, extent of the fractures, and early bone pattern changes associated with cracked teeth.
    • Explain the prognosis and outcomes studies related to treatment and management of cracked teeth and vertical root fractures.
    • Apply the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches for restoration of cracked teeth.
