Anterior Endodontics for the General Practitioner: 2 CE / $197course

Dr. Allan Deutsch EndodonticsBy: Deutsch, Allan DMD
Fill to the radiographic apex? Okay to be long? Better to be short? One visit? Two? Are non-vital teeth treated differently than vital teeth? Avoid breaking files.

Dr. Allan Deutsch examines these everyday issues and presents current thinking, supported by recent clinical and basic research advancements in endodontic treatment that makes one-visit anterior endodontic therapy practical. Point-by-point, step-by-step, Dr. Deutsch discusses canal morphology, instrumentation, irrigation and obturation with the goal of improving clinical success rates while performing one-visit endodontic treatment.

This lecture highlights advancements in faster and more accurate access, and how to cleanse and instrument canals in an efficient and safe manner while minimizing iatrogenic mistakes and avoiding instrument breakage. An acclaimed teacher, Dr. Deutsch demonstrates how to perform obturation that predictably seals the canal three dimensionally and discusses philosophies that increase clinical success rates when performing one-visit endodontic therapy.

Endodontic Retreatment: Achieving Success the Second Time - Part I: 1 CE / $99course

dr.gilbertBy: Gilbert, Brett E. DDS
Treat or retreat? Dr. Brett Gilbert may just have the answers that make us pause and reconsider the quick condemnation of endodontically treated teeth that have post treatment disease. After all, it is easy to point to a radiolucency and offer a dental implant as the "obvious" solution. But is it?

In this powerful Part I of a 2-part series, Brett teaches us what can be expected with endodontic success and how, in turn, we can evaluate teeth with continued apical disease. What is the etiology? Are all bugs the same? Given different clinical situations, Dr. Gilbert gives us the tools to make reasonable predications as to the success of retreatment and how best to go about it. By the end of this lecture, we have a greater understanding of the multitude of irritants that challenge endodontic success and which steps are necessary to improve treatment outcomes.
Course Objectives
Learners taking these courses will:

  • Learn to evaluate previously root canal treated teeth for success and failure.
  • Understand the bacterial etiology and pathogenesis of post treatment disease, and the prognosis for retreatment.
  • Recognize the clinical etiologies that contribute to post treatment disease
  • Be able to select appropriate retreatment options.

Endodontic Retreatment: Achieving Success the Second Time - Part II: 1 CE / $99course

dr.gilbertBy: Gilbert, Brett E. DDS
First understand the "Whys," and then we can get to the "Wherefores."

Part I of this informative series establishes why endodontically treated teeth may exhibit new disease post-treatment. Dr. Brett Gilbert first defines clinical success for endodontically treated teeth, and then explains the causes for new/continued apical disease and what are the practical expectations for retreatment.

In this lecture, Part II, Brett explains: coronal disassembly, radicular disassembly, which instruments are needed and how to use them. He demonstrates post-isolation, post removal, silver point removal and the techniques/instruments for filling the root canal system and which is the most important final step for a successful retreatment.
Course Objectives
Learners taking these courses will:

  • Learn techniques for safe and effective coronal and radicular disassembly of a previously root canal treated tooth.
  • Learn techniques on effective debridement and irrigation of root canal systems.
  • Learn current instrumentation protocols.
  • Will be able to develop skills to apply the latest clinical techniques to treat diseased teeth that have had previous root canal treatment.

The Essentials of Endodontic Diagnosis: 1 CE / $99course

dr.gilbertBy: Gilbert, Brett E. DDS
FA patient has tooth pain: is it an endodontic problem or could it be periodontal? What tests help determine which modality and which course of action to take to relieve the patient's pain? Which tests are diagnostic? Which are less relevant?

Dr. Brett Gilbert presents a compelling course that helps clinicians weave through the maze of critical clinical steps that lead toward a positive endodontic diagnosis and successful treatment outcomes.

This course will discuss how to interpret patient information, which clinical tests to perform, what they mean and how to conduct radiographic exams. Diagnostic terminology and classifications are presented to allow for accurate and proper documentation and clinical treatment decisions.
Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, Learners will:

  • Have a better understanding of how to diagnosis and treat endodontic problems.
  • Understand which clinical tests are meaningful to make more accurate diagnoses and which are not.
  • Be able to diagnose and treat endodontic disease with more predictable results.

Perforations: The Endodontic Dilemma: 1 CE / $99course

dr.gilbertBy: Hashem, Ahmed Dr.
Can teeth with endodontic perforations be salvaged, or are these teeth doomed to be removed? Dr. Ahmed Hashem gives hope that endodontic perforations can be treated. He defines endodontic perforations as mechanical or pathologic communications between the root canal system and the external tooth surface. Through a combination of literature review and clinical cases, Dr. Hashem explains how the prognosis of these defects is affected by multiple factors including position and size of the perforation, material used for repair and time lapsed until the repair. While short-term cases are interesting, Ahmed skillfully presents many long-term follows of five years or more, to illustrate successes on how best to treat these perforations.
Course Objectives
Learners taking these courses will:

  • Identify the causes, prevention and prognosis of tooth perforations.
  • Discuss the different techniques and materials used to repair these defects.
  • Evaluate the contemporary evidence-based on research about perforations.
  • Understand how best to treat endodontic perforations.

Diagnosis and Treatment Planning (in Endodontics): 1 CE / $99course

dr.jovicichBy: Jovicich, Thomas DDS
Wouldn't it be nice if every dental emergency came with surefire symptoms that lead to straightforward diagnoses? But that's not how it happens. Emergencies occur at inopportune times for both the patient and the dentist. Patients may need to be squeezed into a busy schedule and at the same time the dentist is expected to make a quick, accurate decision to help them.

Dr. Thomas Jovicich presents a clear roadmap that exposes how endodontic conditions require a multi-focal approach to make a sensible and appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan. In crisp detail, Dr. Jovicich discusses basic principles that transform isolated clinical findings into an environment that yields a solution.
Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, Learners will:

  • Become more comfortable and confident of assembling information about patient reports, medical histories, and previous dental histories
  • Be able to interpret clinical signs and make clearer sense out of patient symptoms
  • Learn which diagnostic tests are valid and reliable, and which are not
  • Learn how to use radiographic findings to help make predictable decisions to treat and improve patient outcomes.

Options for the Endodontically Compromised Tooth: 1.5 CE / $129course

dr.lynnBy: Lynn, Evan DDS
Controversy abounds. There is a camp of dental professionals that would rather remove a tooth and insert an implant than perform endodontics to save it. There are those who support endodontic treatment only once, and if retreatment becomes necessary, opt to remove the tooth and insert an implant. There is the camp that elects to exhaust all options for retreatment of failing root canals and apicoectomies before ever considering an implant as a reasonable solution. Is there a right or wrong? A sensible approach?

Dr. Evan Lynn creates a decision tree for us as to when it may be in the patient's best interest to have a tooth removed rather than be treated with endodontic therapy and conversely, when to retain a tooth that most of us would remove but he doesn't stop there, he asks pointed questions: Which implant? Which graft material? Do you need a membrane?

Evan is one of the few dual-trained endodontists also trained in periodontics and implantology. He offers his unique insights into the whys and wherefores of treating compromised teeth that are supported by compelling research and recent literature, taking into consideration predictability, cost, outcome, and risks for both modalities.
Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, Learners will:

  • Have a better understanding on how to predictably treat both modalities: endodontics versus implant placement
  • Have realistic expectations for endodontic therapy, outcomes for post and cores, and the benefits of crown-lengthening and when to recommend a crown as the final restoration
  • Have a better understanding of the clinical procedures necessary for successful implant placement including bone grafting and use of membranes

Obturation:  Basis, Objectives, and Techniques (English): 2 CE / $179course

By: Méndez, Catalina DDS
Quick: Which step is more important when filling a root canal? 1. Access preparation? 2. Irrigation? 3. Obturation? The correct answer is that each step is vitally important to successful endodontic treatment, but it is the last one – obturation - that, in the vernacular, seals the deal. And it is this step that deserves as much time and attention as each preceding one.
This illustrative course by Catalina Méndez de la Espriella (narrated by Andrew Van Ness), discusses the technical and biological objectives for successful endodontics, the purpose and criteria for irrigants, and then gives a brief history of obturation so we can better understand the various clinical options that exist today. Then Dr. Mendez delivers the mother lode: she graphically demonstrates how to correctly obturate a canal, step-by-step, via graphic images, videos, and clinical cases so that clinicians performing endodontics will be able to improve and enhance their techniques, and deliver more predictable results. From isolating the bacteria to master cones and accessory points, she explains all. This course is a must for all performing endodontic therapy.
Course Objectives
Learners taking this course will:

  • Understand microfiltration and how to avoid it
  • Understand the principles and objectives of obturation
  • Understand the different obturation techniques
  • Understand existing and new technologies that enhance endodontic treatment for predictable outcomes
