Description

Endodontic diagnosis depends, in part, on radiographic assessment. Endodontic treatment is guided by radiographic images. Intraoral and panoramic radiography have the limitation of providing two-dimensional representations of three-dimensional anatomic structures. These technologies have been augmented by the introduction of limited field of view, high-resolution Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). The advent of CBCT has made it possible to visualize the dentition, the maxillofacial skeleton, and the relationship of anatomic structures in three dimensions. CBCT allows three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, root and canal morphology as well as root and alveolar fractures and resorptive lesions. This aids in diagnosis and treatment planning for both non-surgical and surgical endodontic treatment.

This course is based on the Updated Joint Position Statement of the American Association of Endodontists and the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology. It will provide scientifically based guidance to clinicians regarding the use of cone beam computed tomography in endodontic diagnosis and treatment.

This course is designed to teach and update dentists how to systematically review 3D CBCT data to maximize imaging diagnosis in endodontics. Lecture and cases will cover evidence-based practice techniques, focusing on advanced 3D navigation of small field of view, high resolution CBCT volumes.

Endodontic diagnosis and treatment can be challenging and complex—but those challenges can be overcome with knowledge, understanding and confidence.

Objectives

  • Justify the use of 3D imaging in endodontics,
  • Be familiar with navigation of 3D volumes,
  • Appreciate the use of CBCT in the assessment of root and canal morphology,
  • Understand the use of CBCT in the detection and diagnosis of periapical lesions,
  • Recognize the usefulness of CBCT in nonsurgical and surgical endodontic treatment planning,
  • Understand diagnosis and detection of resorptive defects,
  • Be aware of the benefits and limitations of CBCT for the detection of cracked teeth and vertical root fractures.
