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

Description:
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.

Considering how much additional information you get with CBCT with relatively low ionizing radiation, do you use CBCT before starting every case?

Cbct a game changer in endo. Our endondontists here in Caracas: Carlos Boveda, Andres Alam and Juan Saavedra keep amazing me everyday with their cases. Cbct allows them to find buccal or lingual accesory canals that could not been easily found before this new technology. Endo has changed for good !!!

A really broadly informative and extremely useful overview of the diagnostic and decision altering capabilities of CBCT utilization in endodontic but also applicable in all areas of dentistry. I learned some new perspectives on analyzing my images. Thank you Fred... Henry

CBCT / CadCam Restorative Technologies in Clinical Dentistry
This lecture will provide you with the background information on the rapidly changing digital dental technologies that allow you to make enlightened decision on what to use and how to gain the greatest benefit when incorporated into your practice. Recent advances such as three-dimensional dental radiography with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), virtual dental implant planning, clinical execution with guided surgery and new computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology for the implant abutment and restoration all play a role in the success of modern implant dentistry. While the benefits of CBCT scans for treatment planning and fabrication of surgical guides is well understood, this lecture will also illuminate and clarify the inherent potential problems found in some imaging data.

Legal Considerations in the use of Cone Beam Computer Tomography Imaging
Cone beam computed tomography imaging represents a paradigm shift for enhancing diagnosis and treatment planning. Questions regarding cone beam computed tomography’s associated legal responsibility are addressed, including cone beam computed tomography necessity, recognition of pathosis in the scan’s entire volume, adequate training, informed consent and/or refusal and current court status of cone beam computed tomography. Judicious selection and prudent use of cone beam computed tomography technology to protect and promote patient safety and efficacious treatment complies with the standard of care.
