New Endodontic Technologies

High-Resolution Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)

With Barry Pass, DDS, PhD, Martin D. Levin, DMD and Anastasia Mischenko, DDS, MS

Endodontic therapy depends on diagnostic radiographs and image-guided treatment. Periapical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of high-resolution CBCT, allowing three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, canal morphology, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery. This lecture will highlight the advantages of CBCT imaging in light of recent research demonstrating a significant increase in lesion visualization when compared to periapical radiographs.

Educational objectives:

1. Describe focused field high-resolution CBCT imaging and how it differs from standard dental CBCTs and medical CTs.

2. Understand how volumetric analysis detection of endodontic and non-endodontic pathosis.

3. Learn how to select cases for focused field CBCT examination.

New Instrumentation and Cone Beam Computed Tomography is Revolutionizing Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic therapy depends on thorough disinfection and obturation of the root canal system in order to be successful. New instrumentation developed by ReDent-Nova and sold through Schein, represents a new approach in file design and mode of operation. Once an initial guide path is established, this new file will adapt itself to the root canal walls, applying a uniform cutting action. Integrated with a constant flow of anti-microbial medicaments, this hollow file improves disinfection and facilitates more reliable obturation. This new technology, coupled with limited field cone beam computed tomography, will allow enhanced diagnosis, as well as improved cleaning, shaping and obturation of the root canal system.

Educational objectives:

1. Describe principles of operation and file design for the SAF

2. Understand how enhanced irrigation and uniform contact with the canal walls will improve disinfection.

3. Learn the advantages of limited field of view CBCT examinations.

Endodontic Diagnosis and Troubleshooting Workshop

With Martin D. Levin, DMD and Anastasia Mischenko, DDS, MS

All of us have evaluated patients for lesions of endodontic origin who don't quite fit in the neat little categories that we learned about in dental school. This course will start with a review of basic diagnostic techniques, 2D and 3D radiographic appearance, and the clinicopathology associated with lesions found in everyday practice. Then we'll move on to some more unusual cases such as the odotogenic keratocyst, nasopalatine cyst, squamous cell carcinoma and iatrogenic lesions.

Educational objectives:Nasopalatine duct cyst with typical heart-shaped appearance

1. Describe all of the testing modalities that can be used to diagnose endodontic pathosis.

2. Learn how to document your findings

3. Understand the radiographic appearance of typical odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions of the jaws.

 

Sign-Up Now! This course will be presented free of charge to invited guests at our Chevy Chase office. Please contact us at 301-654-6077 or course@endocc.com. Attendees will receive 1.5 hours of continuing education credit. Refreshments will be served.
