    CE Hours: 1.0

    Description: The goal of modern endodontic microsurgery is a predictable elimination of the periapical pathosis in a minimally invasive way both for the hard and soft tissues. 

    When we do an endodontic surgery we may solve the endodontic problem, but we may create an aesthetic problem for the patient. 

    Knowledge of essential anatomical landmarks, soft tissue vasculature and wound healing are mandatory in order to obtain an excellent healing outcome after a microsurgical procedure. This presentation will address incisions and flap designs for all tooth locations, as well as criteria for proper flap design selection. 

    At the same time, atraumatic flap manipulation and suturing techniques under the microscope can enhance the clinician’s surgical skills and will be thoroughly discussed throughout this presentation. 

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Describe indications of different flap designs in endodontic surgery.
    • Explain atraumatic manipulation, proper handling and predictable suturing of the mucosal tissues under the microscope.
    • Apply learned skills in muco-gingival surgical procedures.

    CE Hours: 1.0

    The relationship of the pulp and the periodontium is dynamic. Multiple anatomical and iatrogenic pathways can communicate these tissues in both health and disease. These pathways include furcation canals, dentinal cracks, and vertical root fractures. In other cases, a cemental root fracture (cemental tear) can mimic periapical pathosis. It is generally agreed that the pulp and its necrotic content affect the periodontal tissues. A controversy exists over the ability of periodontal disease to affect the dental pulp. During this presentation, we will review diagnostic techniques, the prognosis, and treatment alternatives for endo/perio lesions.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Evaluate the characteristics and clinical presentation of endo-perio lesions.
    • Discuss clinical presentation of cracked teeth, vertical root fractures and cemental tears.
    • Discuss the endodontic prognosis in cases with complex endo-perio involvement.

    CE Hours: 1.0

    Description

    Techniques and Technologies have been developed to satisfy the demands of evolving micro techniques but are not limited to the classical endodontic armamentarium. The most recent example is the implementation of the Piezosurgical technique for root end surgery. Posterior sites, with substantial cortical plate thicknesses and sensitive anatomy, present the dichotomy of visualization versus post-surgical regeneration of bone. The bony lid technique bridges the gap between these two concepts, and the application of Piezosurgery renders a precise and biocompatible osseous incision. This seminar will introduce the participant to the indications/contraindications of the Bony Lid technique, the fabrication of a precision endodontic surgical stent (PRESS) and execution of the technique in a mandibular molar site.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Explain the development of the bony lid technique and the advantages/disadvantages.
    • Sequence the steps involved in the planning and fabrication of a precision endodontic surgical stent (PRESS)©
    • Evaluate the use of Piezoelectric surgery and PRESS© versus conventional techniques for posterior root end procedures.

    CE: 2.0

    Description: The AAE Position Statement on Vital Pulp Therapy established a new paradigm for the management of cariously exposed vital pulp.  The research presented in the Statement supports changes in the diagnosis and treatment of inflamed pulp.  The AAE should be the leader in dentistry for advancing the adoption of this philosophy of “saving the pulp” as a priority.  In this presentation, the major positions of the Statement will be compared to previous philosophies.  The next stage of acceptance of the philosophy will require not only support from organized dentistry, but, most importantly, from the insurance industry and educational institutions.  Representatives from these critical areas will present pathways for advancement from their perspective.  Incorporation of the Vital Pulp Therapy philosophy into mainstream dental practice will require more than just the dental community.

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

    • Explain how the AAE Position Statement differs from traditional philosophies of treatment for cariously exposed pulp.
    • Describe the need for revision of traditional diagnostic terminology for inflamed vital pulp – “reversible vs irreversible”
    • Ackownledge the requirement for adequate reimbursement for Vital Pulp Therapy procedures from insurance companies

    Description: Instrument separation is very frustrating. Instrument retrieval is even more frustrating and considered more challenging than any other procedure in endodontics because there was no predictable protocol for instrument retrieval. But the recent literature suggested that separated instruments that are visible under a dental operating microscope (DOM) can be predictably removed with ultrasonic tips alone using a single standardized retrieval protocol that minimizes potential variables. Visualization and accessibility to the separated instrument play a major role in successful instrument retrieval.

    However, when it comes to the removal of non-visible separated instruments, an instrument retrieval procedure would be completely unpredictable from a lack of visualization. Hence, in the lecture how to manage non-visible separated instruments will be discussed and the best technique will be suggested to make it as predictable as possible to remove those beyond the curve under the DOM. In addition, the standard protocol in combination with CBCT for instrument retrieval will also be shown and discussed.

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

    • • Make a predictable treatment plan for non-visible separated instruments
    • • Demonstrate minimally invasive and predictable way to prepare the canal for removal of non-visible separated instruments
    • • Perform the best technique to remove non-visible separated instruments

    Description:The incorporation of the Surgical Operating Microscope into the contemporary Endodontic surgical practice has elevated the precision and expanded the scope of the treatments possible because of the increased magnification of the field in concert with brilliant illumination. However, the transition to integration was not always a smooth learning curve. Positioning of the SOM relative to the operative field, while providing adequate and stable retraction, has proven to be a major hurdle. This presentation will provide guidelines for effective implementation of the SOM, incorporating basic ergonomic principles, radiographic and CBCT pretreatment cues, procedure-specific positional variations, and line of sight optimization for surgical procedures. It will also suggest alternative reflection and retraction platform strategies to ease the acquisition and visualization of the surgical field. 

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

    • Demonstrate proper surgical ergonomics and its influence on performance.
    • Recognize the importance of “Virtual Surgery” in the pre-treatment assessment of access and positioning.
    • Describe the changes in angulation and reflection and their influence on field visualization and “line of sight”.
    • Examine the various means of retraction and their respective applications.

    Description: 

    Avulsions is considered to be one of the most severe and complex dental injuries with regards to treatment and long-term prognosis. The extra-alveolar dry period and storage medium in which a tooth is kept prior to replantation remain critical factors affecting the survival and repair potential of the periodontal ligament in avulsed teeth. When replantation is not immediate, replacement root resorption (RRR) and ankylosis is the most common complication. This lecture will discuss the recently published guidelines and present emerging approaches for the treatment of avulsed teeth with long extra-alveolar dry time.

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

    • Discuss avulsion injuries and its complications in growing patients.
    • Explain the new published protocols and strategies for avulsed teeth
    • Describe new concepts for rehabilitation and regeneration of injured tissues.

    Description: 

    Antibiotics are useful adjunctive tools in the management of endodontic infections. That said, their overuse and misuse in dentistry and medicine have caused a dramatic increase in the rates of antibiotic resistance. The rise in resistance, among other concerns, underscores the need for stewardship of this valuable resource. Participants in this webinar will understand the diagnosis of endodontic infections, but will more importantly appreciate those situations that may benefit from antibiotic therapy as well as those where antibiotics may not be necessary. Evidence-based strategies for prescription will be reviewed, as will antibiotic premedication in dentistry. 

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

    • Define antibiotic stewardship and discuss its necessity.
    • Review the diagnosis of orofacial infections
    • Discuss indications and contraindications for antibiotic therapy in endodontic infection management, as well as evidence-based antibiotic regimens.
