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…
Dental Endoscopic Viewing System
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…
An Evidence-Based Endodontic Implant Algorithm: Untying the Gordian Knot; Part I
Over the years, endodontics has diminished itself by enabling the presumption that it is comprised of a narrowly defined service mix; root canal therapy purportedly begins at the apex and ends at the orifice.
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.
Endodontic Procedural Concepts
Procedural concepts are addressed including when to perform a .04 taper and when to do a .06 taper.
Root Canal Perforations - Diagnosis and Treatment - Part 3 of 3
Dr. Leandro Pereira details the diagnosis and variable options for the management and treatment of root perforations.
Limited Field Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) in Endodontics
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.
Prevention and Management of Broken Endodontic Instruments
This lecture aims to review the most common preventive measures to avoid file breakage and to provide clinical tips and recommendations for the management of challenging broken file cases. Highly invasive, minimal invasive and non invasive broken instrument removal techniques are showcased through video case presentation series under the microscope.
