Dental Radiology: 2D and 3D Consideration in Endodontics

Categories: ,

Speaker(s):

Date: 2021-11-04 08:00:00

Location: Online Webinar

Contact Hours: 1 Live CE

Event Details

An essential component of the diagnostic puzzle in endodontics is radiology. 2D radiographs have been helpful to aid in diagnosis and planning. However, teeth, like the human body, are 3 dimensional and limitations with 2D radiology exist. Ultimately, the use of 3D imaging/CBCT in endodontics is about avoiding surprises, assessing prognosis, and having the information to treatment plan most effectively. Studies have shown that endodontists change their treatment plan approximately 60% of the time when using 3D imaging vs. 2D imaging.

Some examples of CBCT’s use in endodontics are identifying significant splits/branches on canals that don’t show on 2D; assessing the number, shape, and location of canals (commonly lower anteriors, premolars, and molars); locating and planning access to calcified/missed canals, angled/rotated teeth, crowned teeth or difficult anatomy; and more accurately measuring for location to a canal (depth, distance from other canals or structures, etc.). Additionally, CBCT can help to minimize incomplete endos (CDT D3332) - entering and finding a crack/perforation. 3D imaging also provides another diagnostic modality for more challenging patients (gaggers, special needs, etc.) and is a vehicle that can provide better patient communication-reviewing the scan with the asymptomatic patient.

Learning Objectives
After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Describe how CBCT is a useful adjunct in addition to 2D radiology
  • Practice conveying the importance of CBCT to patients
  • Identify how to review and analyze limited field of view 3D scans for endodontic applications
  • Recognize how CBCT can help in the assessment of endodontic case complexity

The Role of Pre-mixed Bioceramics in the Treatment of the Pediatric and Mature Vital Tooth

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Understand and challenge the diagnosis of irreversible pulpitis
  • Understand the requirements for successful vital pulp therapy 
  • Understand the advantages of bioceramic materials 
  • Understand new techniques for vital pulp therapy 

Abstract

Maintaining the vital pulp has obvious advantages. However, studies from the 1960’s concluded that vital pulp therapy of the exposed pulp was generally unsuccessful and that root canal treatment provided a more predictable long-term prognosis. New materials and technologies enable us now to consider treatments that were previously considered impossible. This talk will cover how bioceramic materials have changed our definition of irreversible pulpitis and their application in vital pulp therapy of immature and mature teeth.

A New Approach to the Old Problem of Canal Instrumentation

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this program, participants will be able to:
• Understand and participate in creation of a glide path 
• Understand and participate the use of NiTi files for canal preparation 
• Recognize the benefits and use of a new controlled memory file system 
 

Abstract

Do you want to provide excellent endodontic care for your patients? This virtual and unique hands-on course is designed for dentists to gain expertise and confidence with completing the highest quality endodontics on both vital and necrotic teeth. 
Participants used newly designed NiTi files included in the hands-on kit to learn advanced glide path negotiation and shaping techniques. Other topics include minimally invasive endodontics while conserving tooth structure and maintaining working length. This exciting multi-media program highlights solutions and suggestions on how to treat straightforward and complex endodontic cases. 
This virtual and hands-on workshop included a hands-on kit containing NiTi files, stainless steel files, and a state of the art 3-D printed tooth. The hands-on technique being taught can be used with your current endodontic motor. (Full Rotary, Reciprocation, or Adaptive Technology Motion).
