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.

extremely well presented. my work has improved a lot after utilising cbct images.

charles hoopingarner - (7/11/2012 10:45 PM)

all these cbct images are more clear than what i AM PRODUCING ON MY MACHINE. iT WOULD BE NICE TO GET INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO MAXIMIZE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A GIVEN MACHINE

Maurice Salama - (7/11/2012 11:20 AM)

Well done and thorough review of CBCT Limited Field vs. 2D radiography in clinical practice.
Thanks Dr. Salama

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.

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.

ProTaper Universal - Whatever You Thought, Think Again
In 1995, the opportunity was present to develop an improved set of NiTi files. The goal was to create a simple set of easy-to-use files that would significantly improve the benchmark for safety and efficiency. In collaboration with the engineers from Maillefer, Drs. Pierre Machtou, John West and I agreed to develop a set of files that would precisely duplicate the Schilder shaping concept.

Do All Endodontically Treated Teeth Require a Post?
Treatment modalities in restorative dentistry should be implemented with a solid rationale behind them and support from scientific studies.These principles, in conjunction with clinical experience, can dictate when and if a post is required when a tooth has undergone root canal treatment. Dentists know each tooth is anatomically different and should be diagnosed and treated with an individual approach when it comes to its restoration. It is tempting to follow a path that leads into a routine in which…
