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.

The Digital Workflow in a Modern Clinical Practice Premium Member Content

The Digital Workflow in a Modern Clinical Practice
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we use for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that meet our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled us to use new material and new equipment that facilitate the production of an adaptation and an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. Today, intraoral mapping technology is one of the most exciting new areas in dentistry since three dimensional scanning of the mouth is required in a large number of procedures such as prosthodontics, implant dentistry and orthodontics.

Effective Restorative Dentistry Using CO2 Hard Tissue Laser Premium Member Content

Effective Restorative Dentistry Using CO2 Hard Tissue Laser
The CO2 9.3um hard tissue laser has made restorative dentistry more acceptable to patients mainly due to the lack of local anesthesia required for most all restorations. Procedures will be shown on both virgin teeth as well as replacement of previous restorations. What has been most impressive is how the cutting speed can be varied in both enamel and dentin. Also the efficiency as well as the simplicity of operation will be included. Finally, you will see patient responses after the procedures showing the effectiveness of the laser in anesthetizing the teeth being treated.
