Summary:

Endoscopy has enabled medicine to take a quantum leap in disease diagnosis and therapeutic management by allowing visualization and access for repair of injuries via minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques. Since their introduction, fiberoptic bundles and electronic video technology have continually advanced and fostered smaller-bore (viewing tubes) endoscopes of 2 mm and less, further improving access into smaller cavities and anatomical spaces of the body. This viewing technology has reached its pinnacle, and tomorrow's technology has recently become the reality of today for dental professionals. The introduction of the dental endoscopic intraoral viewing system (DentaIView, Irvine, CAl will help overcome many diagnostic and therapeutic challenges encountered in the daily practice of dentistry. The dental endoscopic intraoral viewing system has a unique small bore size of approximately 1 mm, 24x to 48x magnification, a powerful illuminating source, and an effective irrigation system to allow optimal visualization during minimally invasive dental surgical applications (MIDSATM) . The dental endoscope allows major advances in the diagnostic and therapeutic abilities of healthcare providers throughout the industry. The use of dental endoscopy allows the clinician to visualize structures, calculus, prosthetics, odontogenic aberrations, and anatomic abnormalities; traditional magnifications with loupes or microscopes have limited use in this capacity, permitting only supragingival viewing unless surgical flap access is facilitated. When used adjunctively during surgery, traditional modes of magnification cannot visualize limited space areas such as the roof of furcations and/or root surfaces in deep and narrow three-wall infrabony defects that can be viewed using endoscopic technology.

Endodontic-Restorative Symbioses: Diagnosis and Treatment
The success of endodontic treatment is comprised of proper diagnosis and treatment, which is easier to accomplish when the symptoms correlate to the clinical and radiographic findings. It is generally a more predictable treatment on anterior teeth as opposed to posterior teeth due to the number of canals and their internal configuration. A multidisciplinary approach has never been more essential to provide the patient with the best possible choices for treatment. Moreover, the general dentist and…

Do All Endodontically Treated Teeth Require a Post?
Treatment modalities in restorative dentistry should be implemented with a solid rationale behind them and support from scientific studies.These principles, in conjunction with clinical experience, can dictate when and if a post is required when a tooth has undergone root canal treatment. Dentists know each tooth is anatomically different and should be diagnosed and treated with an individual approach when it comes to its restoration. It is tempting to follow a path that leads into a routine in which…

Three-Canal Maxillary Premolar Teeth: A Clinical Reality
To treat three-canal maxillary premolar teeth predictably, it is necessary to be aware of the clinical and radiographic anatomy. These teeth may also require special shaping and obturation techniques. The purpose of this presentation is to show the complete procedure of an endodontic treatment of a upper left second premolar with three root canals.

CBCT in Endodontics: Changing the Landscape of Diagnosis and Clinical Treatment Premium Member Content

CBCT in Endodontics: Changing the Landscape of Diagnosis and Clinical Treatment
Radiographic imaging is essential in the diagnosis, treatment planning and follow-up in endodontics. The interpretation of an image can be confounded by a number of factors, including the regional anatomy as well as superimposition of both the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. As a result of superimposition, periapical radiographs reveal only limited aspects, a 2-dimensional view, of the true three dimensional anatomy. Additionally, there is often geometric distortion of the anatomical structures being imaged with conventional radiographic methods. These problems can be overcome by utilizing small or limited volume cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging techniques which produce accurate 3-dimensional images of the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. This presentation will highlight the indications, advantages and considerations of the use of CBCT in endodontics.
