Limited Field Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) in Endodontics

Description:
Endodontic disease adversely affects quality of life and can produce significant morbidity in afflicted patients. Endodontic therapy depends on diagnostic radiographs and image-guided treatment. Periapical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of limited field of view (FOV) high-resolution CBCT, allowing three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, root canal morphology, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery. 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.

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 Premium Member Content

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.

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…
