WHATS HOT, WHATS NOT AND WHATS NEW IN ENDODONTICS!
We are inundated with new materials and techniques on a daily basis. How do we decide what really works?
What’s new in the areas of:
DIAGNOSIS
ANESTHESIA
INSTRUMENTATION
IRRIGATION
OBTURATION
SINGLE VS MULTIPLE VISITS
BISPHOSPHONASE

This will allow you to decide what new techniques and materials you may wish to incorporate in your armamentarium.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn what new techniques and materials will improve our ability to provide the highest quality care.
  • Determine if these new materials and techniques are superior to what we already do.

ENDODONTICS FROM THE CROWN DOWN: BACK TO THE FUTURE!
Topics will include:

CRACKED AND FRACTURED TEETH
Cracked teeth present dentists with a myriad of challenges, from diagnosis to treatment. Dr. Jafine aims to demystify this frustrating but common scenario by taking participants through each component of treatment and cracked tooth restoration.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn how to determine the extent of a longitudinal fracture and how to proceed with treatment
  • Discover when a coronal restoration is required
  • Assess when a cracked tooth may require endodontic treatment or extraction

REGENERATIVE ENDODONTICS
Managing immature teeth with pulpal necrosis presents a unique set of issues, particularly since implants are contraindicated for young patients whose craniofacial skeletons are still growing. These teeth present with wide open apicies and minimal root formation. By explaining how to use tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to regenerate functional pulpal tissues, Dr. Jafine illustrates how Regenerative Endodontics offers an alternative to doctors attempting to treat such cases.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of what Regenerative Endodontics is and how it works, including tissue engineering and the biological basis for this type of treatment
  • Learn when and where to use Regenerative Endodontics as well as viable alternative treatments
  • Understand the clinical protocol for Regenerative Endodontics and other alternative treatments

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT AND A CROWN, EXTRACTION AND AN IMPLANT……WHAT SHOULD I DO?
The preservation of the natural dentition is the primary goal of dentistry, and whenever possible, dentists try to find ways to save their patient’s teeth from extraction. Due to recent technological advances, the field of dentistry has seen an increased number of compromised teeth being extracted and replaced with dental implants. While they are a remarkable advancement for dentistry, in general, implants are not always the right option. Dr. Jafine demonstrate how to evaluate the restorability of a compromised tooth and how to use retention therapies should extraction be deemed unnecessary.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn evaluation techniques to determine if a tooth is a candidate for endodontic treatment or retreatment
  • Understand what scientific evidence exists to help determine treatment decisions
  • Discuss real life cases

THE USE AND ABUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS IN DENTISTRY
The over prescribing of antibiotics is a growing concern. Antibiotic misuse is harmful to the patient and society as a whole. We must recognize the different outcome consequences which arise from the use of antibiotics and address these concerns. Antibiotic resistance is rapidly increasing to commonly used antibiotics used around the world. There are no new antibiotics available. We will discuss the myths regarding the use of systemic antibiotics and alternative treatments.

The problem is not the antibiotics but how antibiotics are used and abused.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Learn when to prescribe antibiotics
  • Learn what alternative treatments exist
  • Review the need for prophylactic antibiotic coverage (new treatment protocols)
