Summary:

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 its pinnacle, and tomorrow's technology has recently become the reality of today for dental professionals. The introduction of the dental endoscopic intraoral viewing system (DentaIView, Irvine, CAl will help overcome many diagnostic and therapeutic challenges encountered in the daily practice of dentistry. The dental endoscopic intraoral viewing system has a unique small bore size of approximately 1 mm, 24x to 48x magnification, a powerful illuminating source, and an effective irrigation system to allow optimal visualization during minimally invasive dental surgical applications (MIDSATM) . The dental endoscope allows major advances in the diagnostic and therapeutic abilities of healthcare providers throughout the industry. The use of dental endoscopy allows the clinician to visualize structures, calculus, prosthetics, odontogenic aberrations, and anatomic abnormalities; traditional magnifications with loupes or microscopes have limited use in this capacity, permitting only supragingival viewing unless surgical flap access is facilitated. When used adjunctively during surgery, traditional modes of magnification cannot visualize limited space areas such as the roof of furcations and/or root surfaces in deep and narrow three-wall infrabony defects that can be viewed using endoscopic technology.

Endodontic-Restorative Symbioses: Diagnosis and Treatment
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…

Optimized Instrumentation & Technology in Endodontic Therapy
Rotary instrumentation using Optimized Torque Reduction (OTR) motion and Apex Locator-Handpiece technology has the potential to improve clinical efficiency during endodontic therapy. In this webinar, Dr. Nasseh explains the implementation of one such technology using the ESX instrumentation and obturation system. He further shares some tips and settings for effective, safe operations. Various endodontic motions and their indications for use are explained and an anterior tooth demonstration is presented to consolidate all covered points with a clinical demonstration.

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.
