PULP VITALITY PRESERVATION
Stéphane Simon (France)

Learning Objectives

  • > To better understand the advantages of preserving the pulp vitality
  • > To be updated on pulp vitality diagnosis and concepts of new tools
  • > To discuss the pulp chamber pulpotomy as an alternative but permanent treatment

Abstract

The orientation of modern endodontics is likely to be more pharmacological and biological, and the procedures less invasive. Thus, in the endodontics of the future, these approaches are expected to complement the current treatment techniques.

A true translational approach bridging basic science and the clinic is essential to understand why and how endodontics needs to evolve. The aim of this lecture is to discuss the updated and recent literature about pulp inflammation status and diagnosis, and the putative advantages of treating the teeth with a pulp chamber pulpotomy.

THE USE OF CBCT IN ROOT CANAL TREATMENT: FROM DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS TO TREATMENT OF COMPLEX CASES
Philippe Sleiman (Lebanon)

Learning Objectives

  • > When to ask for a CBCT
  • > How to read a CBCT and which filters and cross sections to use for different clinical cases
  • > Identify how CBCT adds valuable information to clinical findings and helps solve problems

Abstract

The limitations of periapical radiography have led to significant interest in cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in endodontic applications. With the use of CBCT, cystic lesions are easily identified, and interactions between lesions and main organs and vital tissues, like sinus and nerve, become more evident. A clinical presentation covering several examples that we encountered in our practice and how we managed to solve them

REVASCULARIZATION TREATMENT IN TRAUMATIZED INFECTED AND NOT INFECTED IMMATURE TEETH
María Teresa Flores (Chile)

Learning Objectives

  • > To understand pulp biology related to dental trauma
  • > To recommend minimal invasive treatment when repair is anticipated due to stem cells´ potential
  • > To identify the role of stem cells from the apical papilla (SCAP) in traumatized immature teeth in early mixed dentition

Abstract

Little is known about the best treatment for traumatized immature permanent incisors which become infected following acute care. Regenerative endodontics procedures have become the state of the art in translational research, for understanding the biological philosophy of minimal intervention. However, these procedures may only be recommended after an accurate diagnosis of the type of injury sustained by the traumatized immature tooth. This presentation will illustrate the unlimited potential of stem cells in traumatized infected and not infected immature teeth, a big challenge when treatment should be focused on the best interest of the child.

NITI ALLOY IN ENDODONTICS
Philippe Sleiman (Lebanon)

Learning Objectives

  • > NiTi main structure and the differences between the two main phases
  • > What is heat treatment and what does it add?
  • > Is the surface color of the file that important?

Abstract

NiTi is a very interesting alloy. We are still discovering several of its properties by either modifying the crystalline structure in order to improve the flexibility and the torsional properties, or by a different rotational system in order to get the best clinical results. The question is that after so many years of experience with this alloy, is there anything left to discover, and why? And what is heat treatment adding to clinical improvement? Blue-gold-silver colors are the results of surface oxidation; what do we need to know about it?

BIOCERAMICS IN ENDODONTICS
Stéphane Simon (France)

Learning Objectives

  • > To give an overview of bioceramic products available on the market
  • > To compare bioceramic products dedicated to root canal filling and coronal restoration
  • > To discuss the advantages and disadvantages of filling the root canals with a bioceramic-based material

Abstract

New biomaterials from the bioceramics family have been developed in the last five years and are advertised as being the best products for pulp capping, retro-obturation, perforation treatment, and more recently for root canal filling.

The aim of this session is to overview the recent scientific data published on this family of products and to discuss the true advantages of using them for revising root canal obturation at least.
