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.
Prevention and Management of Separated Instruments
Broken, separated, or “disarticulated” instruments can occur during the day-to-day practice of endodontics. No dentist should have a particular tolerance for broken instruments; however, it is important to know how to prevent and treat these incidents and how to explain the situation to the patient. Guidelines for prevention and management of intracanal separated instruments including Microsonic and Bypassing techniques have been explained in details here with different technical tips to help the dentist to increase the chance of saving tooth in the event of the breakage.
Prevention and Management of Broken Endodontic Instruments
he separation of endodontic instruments is a procedural accident that results in major treatment challenges and medico legal considerations in endodontics. With the advent of rotary nickel-titanium (Ni Ti) instrumentation the issue became extremely prominent. Extensive research has been conducted to understand the mechanics of instrument separation. This has led to changes in the manufacturing methods, instrument design and instrumentation protocols. Most recently, reciprocation is challenging rotary instrumentation in terms of speed and safety from fracture. Although the incidence of file breakage can be drastically decreased, it cannot yet be eliminated. No matter what instruments you are using inside the root canal system, the prevention and management of broken endodontic instruments still remains a hot topic.
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.
Smile Design 3D vs. 2D: The Evolution of Precision in Esthetic Digital Dentistry
In the digital dentistry era, trials never stop to achieve a full digital workflow to fabricate aesthetic restorations based on predictable and accurate facial guided smile design methods but the existing techniques present limitations in the process of transferring the design from 2D to 3D as they are mainly based on 2D Photography and 2D to 3D superimposition and transfers.
In this presentation a review of the available techniques and technologies is presented as well as a novel technique that has been used to design a 3D smile frame using 3D face scans, 3D intra oral optical scans, CBCT and multiple software to overcome the limitations of already available 2D smile design systems offering predictable, more accurate and easier to use workflows for success in analysis, planning, design and execution in everyday clinical practice.
