Complex Endodontic Treatment: Planning and Diagnosis

Img ?1567440366
Dr. Joseph Chikvashvili, DDS

This comprehensive course is intended for general dentists to better understand how modern technology and advances can help maintain teeth once thought to be hopeless. It will demonstrate the value of microscopic dentistry along with CBCT imaging to access problems and how to better treat these complex cases. Most of the cases are more complicated than the usual endodontic referral to a specialist. But it is the hope that after this presentation, dentists will be able to use new options to better help themselves and their patients


  1. Understand How to Read Radiographs
  2. Appreciate the value of a 3D Image
  3. Know what treatment options are available outside of the conventional wisdom

Two Kase Studies

Kase #1

SafeSider instrumentation produces minimal tooth structure reduction with maximal cleaning of the canals by internal routing causing targeted instrumentation of the buccal and lingual walls in this case. Not the indiscriminate 360 degree centered instrumentation that is associated with rotary techniques. Single cone obturation with EZfill to complete the case.

Kase #2

Simple 2nd premolar? Not so much. A scan and a scope revealed an apical split. A bit of effort and determination with SafeSiders and we get a great result! Pre bending the instrument tip with hand placement to facilitate negotiating each apical canal is the key.

Evolutionary Endodontics: Two Pathways, Different Outcomes - CE Credit

Barry L. Musikant, D.M.D., F.A.C.D.
Evolution applies to both life and innovation. In endodontics, productive innovation leads to a better quality of life, at least orally speaking. Evolution is all about competition, with the winners being those that best adapt to a changing environment. In the practice of endodontics, we have competing systems that at times cross paths, but start from different premises.(Continued)

Kase of the Month - Root Amputation Procedure

Dr. Manisha Goswami

What would you do if a patient presented with a failing root canal retreatment or a failing apicoectomy?

( ) Continue watching the Super Bowl
( ) Retreat the retreatment
( ) Extract the tooth
(X) Dental root amputation

Dental Root Amputation Procedure

Dental root amputation is described as the surgical removal of one of the roots of a multi-rooted tooth. This procedure is carried out to remove disease, to prevent further bone loss and/or to remove part of the tooth that has a tooth fracture. This procedure is indicated in patients that present with a failing root canal retreatment (RCT) or a failing apicoectomy. This option is worth exploring if a patient wants to save their tooth. Dental root amputation may prolong the viability of a tooth for a few years. Case selection is of utmost importance prior to performing this procedure. Long-term survival rate of a resected tooth is 83% at five years and 68% at ten years. Lower molars usually fail due to root fracture while the upper molars usually fail due to periodontal breakdown progression.


New Internal Bleaching Solution Making Endo Easier

Amy Dukoff, D.M.D.

Dr Amy Dukoff with be presenting at our office on the proper Application of E-Rinse White for Internal Bleaching at our office on October 4th - 6:30PM It removes the dirt & debri & organic material from within the dentin;

- Aids in removing pulpal tissue trapped in the pulpal calcifications.

- Aids in removing the trapped dirt and stains and dead tissue from under the pulpal calcifications

- Facilitates locating the pulpal orifices by removing the unwanted pulpal debri, dirt, stains, tissue in order to improve the illumination - the way light passes through the dentinal tubules- improving visibility inside the tooth.

This Course is FREE and good for 2 ADA CE Credits!!

-- As always light food and refreshments will be served.



Mandibular Incisors

Sara Kim, D.M.D.
In the past, I have spoken about the anatomy of posterior teeth but I want now to talk about mandibular incisors. A patient walks into your office and you determine that he or she needs root canal treatment on a mandibular incisor. You may think “Piece of cake!” after looking at the radiograph, which appears to have a single narrow canal. Yes, you are correct that mandibular incisors usually (97-98%) have a single canal but these single canals tend to be wide labiolingually.(Continued)
