    Abstract

    Research Topics and Methods for Endodontic Nickel-Titanium Instruments and Clinical Implications


    Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) endodontic files have brought a big step toward "efficient" practice of endodontic procedure. The NiTi files help clinicians not only reduce their working time but also increase the clinical success rate with minimal procedural errors. Now various kinds of NiTi instruments are the "essential" equipment for the root canal preparation over stainless-steel instruments. Recently introduced instruments made of heat treated alloy in various designs made it possible to shape the root canals with minimal number of instruments and to preserve the root dentin integrity. Clinicians need to understand the characteristics of each instrument system which may bring a different results of root canal shape including potential aberrations and risk of fracture tendency. This lecture will give an insight based on research evidences which implicates the fracture resistance of the instruments and how the files are developed with scientific and clinical considerations. Followings are the main contents; 1) Effects from geometry on Mechanical performance & Fracture resistance, 2) Effects from geometry on Root dentin integrity, 3) Effects from Heat treatment & Surface Texture on Mechanical performance & Fracture resistance, 4) Research contents with Clinical Implications & Future Study, 5) Methodological Trials with Clinical Relevance.

    Abstract

    Clinical implications of bending and cyclic fatigue resistance tests


    Nickel-titanium (NiTi) instruments are frequently subjected to bending and cyclic fatigue resistance tests. It is widely assumed that instruments with superior flexibility and fatigue fracture resistance might be a better option for the preparation of curved canals.This presentation will discuss:

    • The different bending and cyclic fatigue tests.
    • The correlation between the results of these tests, and the shaping ability of NiTi instruments and their fracture rates.
    • The limitations and clinical implications of bending and cyclic fatigue tests.
    • Clinical cases with emphasis on information derived from these tests in specific situations.

    Abstract

    Problem Solving With Endodontic Instrumentation


    The internal anatomy of human teeth consists of a highly complicated network of multi-planar curved and anastomotic channel spaces, as seen in studies of root canal anatomy. Navigating efficiently, safely and predictably with instruments through this anastomotic canal network can be really challenging. Recently, digital navigation systems and new techniques were introduced to help the clinician solve the problems of endodontic instrumentation. This lecture aims to offer solutions in different clinical instrumentation problems. Learning Objectives To suggest instrumentation solutions for :

    1. Curved canals
    2. Double curved canals
    3. Splitting canals
    4. Interconnecting canals
    5. Ledged canals
    6. Blocked cana

    Abstract

    Modern Endodontics the Science Behind Being Conservative


    As endodontists, we all know that our labor goes beyond the limits of the root canal system, each one of our treatments is intended to restore, or to maintain patients' oral health. From an optimistic point of view, endodontist's advisable goal should be a first step intervention focused in a conservative treatment of pulp disease. Nevertheless, when is not possible to maintain the pulpo-dentinal complex alive, to perform root canal treatments without compromising the remaining dental structure becomes a key challenge to overcome. The main goal of the lecture is to present science based clinical techniques, applied with new generation armamentarium and biomaterials for practicing the minimal invasive endodontics art.

    Abstract

    Regenerative Endodontics: Clinical Challenges


    Clinicians are often faced with the challenge of treating immature teeth with pulpal necrosis. Root canal treatment of immature teeth is always challenging. Root canal instrumentation of thin walls and obturation of widely opened apex are challenging. In addition, risk of vertical root fracture due to thin root canal wall may lead to tooth loss. These cases have been traditionally treated with apexification procedures. In the last decade, regenerative endodontic procedures (REPs) have emerged as an alternative for treating immature teeth. Although both procedures have the primary goal of resolving the disease process, REPs aim to achieve additional goals related to gain further root development. Therefore, these procedures share one goal but are fundamentally different. The REPs involved non-instrumentation, irrigations and triple antibiotics or calcium hydroxide have been used as intra-canal medication. The patient natural scaffold was created, the Bioceramics was used as a capping material and the tooth will be restored. From Mahidol study, the outcome of Regenerative Endodontic Procedures was extremely high with more than 95% in contrast to many studies. We innovated many clinical technics and developed our own guideline for REPs. The new clinical research data will be included in this lecture.

    Abstract

    Revitalisation for immature Permanent Incisors-Does science support its continuing use?


    Revitalisation has now been in the clinical domain for over a decade. But are we any closer to accepting this with a degree of confidence reserved for a method that is supported by strongest possible evidence? We are not much closer to developing cost-effective scaffolds, or stem cell therapies or signaling molecules for clinical use, depending instead on a coarse methodology which is aimed to "fill up" the root canal with something but not exactly with what we want to be present inside a root canal. Root development after revitalisation is unpredictable, with more predictability when the treatment is performed in incisors with developmental defects such as dens invaginatus. Why is here a better outcome for these in comparison to teeth that become non vital due to trauma? The role of HERS will be explored and the speaker will try and speculate why these differences may exist from a perspective of a paediatric dentist with 3 decades of experience in dental trauma. If the aim of performing revitalization in immature non vital incisors is to achieve continued root development then a critical evaluation of this is required. Many of us jumped on the band wagon of revitalization, is it perhaps time to consider getting off? Perhaps in the future when more sophisticated, and cost-effective therapies are introduced, one's that respect the principles of structured tissue engineering, we can reconsider this treatment option as one of choice, rather of last resort.

He then started his PhD project and graduated in 2009 cum laude from the University of Amsterdam defending his PhD thesis "new insights into the root canal wall". Since then he works in ACTA mainly with post graduate residents and PhD candidates and in a private practice limited to Endodontics in Amsterdam.

    Abstract

    To treat or not to treat- management of post treatment periapical periodontitis


    Teeth presenting with post treatment asymptomatic apical periodontitis could present a challenge to patient and operator. The benefits of root canal retreatment in these cases should be balanced against the risks and costs and not exclusively rely on promising outcome reports. The decision is even more complicated when considering new insights about the dynamics of periapical lesions, namely as observed by CBCT. This presentation will discuss the dilemmas we are faced with when approaching post treatment disease, and try to present an alternative approach based on individual patients' values and situation rather than the presence or size of a periapical lesion. Different options will be discussed such as avoidance of treatment, monitoring protocols, partial retreatments, and alternative solutions.

    Abstract

    Isolation complex cases management: clinical strategies to control the Asepsis


    Preventing bacteria contaminate the root canal system during the Endodontic treatment is really important to get a positive outcome of the therapy. The proper rubber dam application is responsible for the Asepsis control and it increases the success rate of the Endodontic treatments: the scientific community agree on a comprehensive operative field isolation is considered as one of the key steps for a predictable clinical result and it represents a simple and affordable solution for the practitioners who want to perform their job according to correct biological and ethical guidelines. During the daily practice we often face challenging cases to isolate as prosthetic stumps or teeth with a crown severely damaged by caries or fracture: even in these situations we do always remember the role of the isolation in the Asepsis and we do develop a strategy to get a proper application of the rubber dam and perfect leakage control. This is possible thanks to the the knowledge of armamentarium and techniques but even thanks a treatment plan that take care of the importance of the Asepsis. When it comes to complex cases, it's important to highlight that once the field is isolated the clinical case will be transformed from complex to simple with noticeable benefits for the operative procedures to follow. The aim of the lecture is to share clinical strategies to easily get a leakage free operative field using the rubber dam even in complex cases.

    Abstract

    Apical Surgery in Endodontics


    Apical surgery is a fantastic alternative to save teeth when it is not possible to proceed a root canal retreatment. We cannot consider ourselves specialists in Endodontics if we do not include this alternative in our clinical procedures. In the conference we will review the prognosis of this treatment, the clinical therapeutics of how to perform it better and numerous cases in which we will try to bring apical surgery to all conference attendees.

    Abstract

    Cell sources for regenerative endodontics


    Dental pulp tissue is composed of cell types of multiple embryonic germ layer origins, hence, to regenerate pulp tissue there is a need for stem or progenitor cell populations with bona fide differentiation capacity. A key hurdle limiting progress in the field of regenerative endodontics has been the identification of such populations of cells. Patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are a powerful and inexhaustible source of cells, which can differentiate into cells from all three embryonic germ layers origin. In addition to pluripotentcy, their derivation from adult somatic cells overcomes the ethical problems associated with embryonic stem cells and avoids the immunologic rejection associated with the use of allogeneic donor cells. This presentation will discuss the potential of iPSCs as an alternative source of cells to regenerate dental pulp tissue. Furthermore, recent in-vitro and in-vivo studies will be reviewed in addition to recent findings by the presenter's research group.

    Abstract

    Dentine Substrate Modification a Translational Review from Experimental Research to Clinical Regenerative Endodontic.


    The process of chemical conditioning on radicular dentin for regenerative endodontics comes with tackling different challenges such as disinfection, dilution of organic tissue, penetration capacity and dentin chelation. When root growth stops, chemical conditioning is the primary form of disinfection, and the formation of a suitable microenvironment conducive to adherence, survival and differentiation of cellular components that enter from the apical papilla, to complete the therapeutic cycle. The NaOCl oxidizes and denatures the collagen matrix while EDTA demineralizes and increases dentin erosion in a substrate of less thickness and low mineralization. Consequently, recent recommendations suggest decreasing the irrigant concentration or exploring other alternatives solutions to tissue preservation. In the current scenario, research is focused on developing strategies for chemical conditioning that meet the therapeutic objectives and minimize chemically and physically induced damage to the dentinal matrix and develop all the molecular abilities that it allows. Chitosan (CS), a cationic polymer of natural origin, non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable with antimicrobial, chelating, and remineralizing properties, has motivated its research as an irrigation alternative in endodontics. An evidence-based review identified the therapeutic approach for 18 immature permanent teeth with pulp necrosis. The clinical outcome of the regenerative treatment was evaluated in periods of up to 10 years, based on two clinical parameters: mineralization changes and complete restoration of the nociception of the dentine-pulp complex. Based on clinical experience, the objective of this presentation was to analyze in-vitro the physical, chemical and molecular changes generated by the use of irrigant solutions on radicular dentine.

    Abstract

    Potential of Bioceramic-signalling based in Regenerative Endodontic


    Regenerative Medicine consists of a triad tissue engineering. Regenerative medicine is used as a regenerative therapy to find new alternative materials. Currently, the gold standard of regenerative therapy is autograft. The use of autografts can cause negative complications and the limited number of sources. One of the materials that can be used as an alternative is alloplastic material, including bioceramic material. Bioceramic based scaffold can release Ca2 + and PO43- ions during the process of forming new bone. Bioceramic materials on the market such as Hydroxyapatite (HA), β-Tricalcium Phosphate (β-TCP), and a combination of HA/β-TCP to form Biphasic Calcium Phosphate (BCP). The weakness of bioceramic based scaffold is low mechanical properties and limited in osteo-induction properties. To resolve its weaknesses by adding doping using Sr2+ ions and Growth Factor as signalling from Stem Cells. Endodontic therapy in the future toward tissue engineering to repair damaged tissue. The most important in tissue engineering is signal, scaffold, and cells. Therefore Bioceramic-signalling based is potential in Regenerative Endodontic.

    Abstract

    Contemporary Root Canal Obturation: Trend or Necessity?


    Success in endodontic treatment is based on the equally important triad of debridement, disinfection, and obturation. When a step in the endodontic or restorative procedure is inadequate, apical seal is adversely affected. The ultimate goal of endodontic obturation has remained the same for the past 50 years: achieve a fluid-tight seal of the root canal system, from the coronal opening to the apical termination. Three-dimensional obturation of the radicular space is essential to long-term success. For this purpose, several techniques have been advocated for obturation. An ideal filling technique should assure complete filling of the canal without overfill and with minimal or no voids. Thus, it is important to select an obturation technique that offers consistency and is easy to use. Most of obturation studies show that all materials and techniques result in some degree of microscopic voids. Although a poorly obturated canal and voids are correlated, radiographic evaluation of obturation does not correlate well with obturation imperfections neither confirm an adequate seal. Fortunately, clinical success rates after endodontic treatment are high despite the varied conditions, materials, and techniques employed. An alternative recent approach is to minimize structural changes during root canal therapy, which may result in a new strategy that is the 'minimally invasive endodontics'. There are, however, currently no developed specified protocols for minimally invasive endodontics. Our presentation will review current obturation techniques and evaluation methods highlighting the conservation of tooth structure to enhance longevity after root canal treatment and providing an overview of this new endodontic paradigm. We will also discuss actual success rate in endodontic treatment based on clinical reliable studies.

    Abstract

    Clinical considerations in the management of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure


    Management of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure has been considered as one of the controversies in Endodontic. Traditionally, pulpectomy has been considered as a treatment of choice. To date, vital pulp therapy has been illustrated as a successful alternative treatment. Ideally, dental practitioners should use the best current available evidence to support their decision making. This lecture will provide the updated knowledge on several key factors for successful treatment of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure. The topics include case selection criteria, treatment techniques, usage of bioceramic materials and evidences of clinical studies. The current guideline of treatment of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure will be discussed.

    Abstract

    Contemporary Endodontic Treatment Outcomes Explained


    The recent increase in publication of outcome studies, use of various outcome terminologies and inconsistent results, have all combined to obscure the actual outcomes of contemporary endodontic treatment modalities. This is confusing to clinicians, and it may act to skew treatment decisions. To navigate the existing ambiguity, it is helpful first to focus on the main purposes of treatment outcomes, and second to define outcomes in relation to explicit outcome goals that may be identified as primary by informed individual patients. Equipped with this perspective, the definitive, relevant outcomes of specific endodontic treatment modalities are then determined by structured appraisal of all published studies. Those studies that satisfy specific methodological requirements are selected as representing the CURRENT BEST EVIDENCE for each specific treatment modality and their reported outcomes are then summarized and effectively communicated to inform treatment decisions. Following the above strategy, this lecture will highlight the outcomes of endodontic treatment in regard to periapical health, symptom-free function and survival/retention, based on the current best evidence. Clinical variables that may influence the outcomes (outcome predictors) will also be listed as supported by the current best evidence.

    Abstract

    The key to success in non-surgical retreatment


    Initial root canal treatment does not always result in healing for a multitude of reasons. The first step to success in retreatment is to make an accurate diagnosis, locating the source of the problem that the patient is having. Based on the diagnosis, a proper treatment plan should be made accordingly. The second step includes removal of the infection form the root canal system responsible for the non-healing. Bacteria may persist following initial treatment due to the areas that were inaccessible to instrumentation and irrigation. The main causes of the initial treatment failure include inaccurate diagnosis, lack of tooth isolation; inadequate cleaning, shaping, and irrigation; and an incomplete obturation. In addition, iatrogenic accidents such as separated instruments and ledge formation can also be serious problems leading to failure because of the inability to disinfect the canal system apical to those obstructions. In retreatment those mishaps that can adversely impact the treatment outcomes should be properly managed. Therefore, in the lecture, the ideal management of those nonhealing cases will be discussed and presented.

    Abstract

    Microscopic Endodontics, its never too late


    Broken files removal can be considered as the most challenging procedure in endodontics to be done for the patient. Because of the difficulties of vision and the tiny space we have to deal with inside the root canal. Usually to remove a broken file we have to remove a significant amount of dentine which will result in root weakening and risk of fracture for the future prognosis. Nowadays is it possible to use special devices with predictable and repeatable technique to remove the broken files in a conservative manner without destroying the roots? and why the old devices and techniques were aggressive? will see all the details during this lecture.

    Abstract

    Ultrasonics in non-surgical retreatments: when, why and how.


    Root canal retreatment have always been considered as a challenge due to the various level of difficulty dictated by the nature of the filling materials as well as the various mishaps made in the primary procedure. These factors can make retreatment a stressful and time-consuming procedure. The development of new techniques and equipment such as microscope and ultrasonics have enhanced the success rate and rendered US increasingly useful in endodontics. In this presentation, we will review briefly different type of ultrasonics and focus on piezoelectric technology. The latest clinical advances in both ultrasonic equipment and tips, the numerous uses of US in clinical endodontics will be exposed through their clinical implications. A didactical description of clinical procedures used at the different stages of retreatment will be exposed. Coronal disassembly; removal of root filling materials or separated instruments and posts; localization of untreated or missed canals and irrigant activation, will be reviewed extensively along with clinical tips and guidelines. At conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Describe the different types of ultrasonics
    • Perform several methods for coronal disassembly and canal exploration upon non-surgical retreatment.
    • Accomplish successful post removal of Pre-formed SS, gold, ceramic and fiber.
    • Master a wide range of clinical techniques to safely remove different root canal materials, carriers, separated instruments and silver points without compromising the outcome of the retreatment procedures.
    • Evaluate the risks and prognosis of each treatment option

Due to the increased use of rotary files instrumentation, more accidents of files breakage inside root canals start to show, making dealing with such cases a nightmare for dentists especially those that do not have the sufficient training or equipment to retrieve it. One of the treatment protocols to deal with broken files is trying to bypass it in order to be able to reach deeper canal areas apically to clean, disinfect, and 3D obturate. But, bypassing broken file may not be easy as it looks, and applying some procedures will increase the possibility for bypass with safe mode. On the other hand, dentists must be aware of the cases that are not indicated for such treatment protocol and shift for file removal to achieve more predictable results. This presentation will highlight the indications and contraindications, special protocol, for safe broken file bypass through presenting literature and many cases illustrated with clinical photos and videos.

    Abstract

    Dental or mental - An endodontist looks at orofacial pain


    As clinicians, we are called upon to diagnose facial pain on a daily basis. For the most part, diagnosis is a routine procedure, accomplished without too much difficulty. Most painful conditions follow certain predictable patterns and exhibit specific signs and symptoms, which, when observed, make diagnosis relatively easy. Patients do present, however, for whom diagnosis is difficult and where pain patterns do not follow recognised norms. Many of these difficult cases can have unsatisfactory outcomes for both patients and practitioners. Complex pain cases are easier to diagnose if attention is paid to closely observing the patient and knowing which questions to ask. Mistakes often occur when clinicians approach diagnosis too quickly without first analysing the patient's response to questioning, and when attempts are made to make the facts fit a diagnosis rather than to make the diagnosis fit the facts. This lecture addresses difficulties in assessing patients with dental and orofacial pain, not by describing the various painful conditions, but by addressing the questions that need to be asked and then analysing responses to these (What should I ask? What does this answer mean? What else do I need to know?). The background for this presentation has been obtained from decades of watching and listening to patients in pain culminating in the publication in 2017 of Diagnosing Dental and Orofacial Pain, A Clinical Manual. Moule, A.J and Hicks, M.L. (eds). Wiley Blackwell, Oxford, UK. Numerous case histories illustrating painful orofacial conditions are presented in a problem-solving manner. Emphasis is placed on the descriptors used by patients and to the verbal and non-verbal responses to questioning.

    Abstract

    Resorption - clinical management and outcomes


    There are 11 different types of resorption - three internal and eight external types. In this presentation, the three most common types will be discussed - that is, external inflammatory (infection-related) resorption, external replacement (ankylosis-related) resorption and external invasive (cervical) resorption. Each type of resorption has different aetiologies, pathogeneses and management strategies. External inflammatory resorption is related to infection of the root canal system so root canal treatment is the usual way to treat this type of resorption - however, there are some modifications to routine root canal treatment that can improve the predictability of the outcomes and the long-term prognosis of the tooth. External replacement resorption typically follows ankylosis and it cannot usually be treated so it is important to know how to prevent it from occurring wherever possible. External invasive resorption often occurs with an obvious cause which complicates treatment. It is also an insidious process that is poorly understood by many practitioners. It typically follows several stages - in the early stages, it can usually be treated by cauterisation, curettage and restoration but the more advanced cases are often better left untreated with simple and regular monitoring to determine their progress and to decide if, and when, to extract the tooth. This lecture will discuss and demonstrate the diagnosis and management of these types of resorption and the longer-term outcomes of the recommended management strategies will be demonstrated.

    Abstract

    Factors Influencing Apical Periodontitis from the Clinical Work to the Host Response


    Apical periodontitis (AP) is an inflammatory disease developed as a reaction to the endodontic infection within the root canal. AP should be resolved with a correct endodontic treatment which takes care of the infection and promotes healing. Nevertheless, the incidence of persistent AP (PAP) in treated teeth is increasing. Several clinical factors are related to persistent AP, and most of them have to do with residual infection internal or external to the root canal. Yet there have been documented preoperative conditions that influence healing of AP, and are not necessarily connected with persistent infection. In recent years, the impact of endodontic infection on general health has been the object of a good amount of research and to date the conclusion is that apical periodontitis is associated to cardiovascular diseases. Given these premises is time to focus also on the impact that individual health and genetic predisposition may have on healing response to endodontic treatment. Chronic systemic conditions affecting the patients, and medications (mostly immune-modulators) may influence the reactions and outcome of the treatment we perform and offer an interesting insight on unknown aspects of the patient response to endodontic treatment. At the same time the research is bringing to our attention how the severity of the host response may influence healing of AP and how future protocols may enhance healing by complementing endodontic treatment with medications. Last, recent studies observed a role of both systemic and local immuno-modulatory therapies in improving the healing response of AP to the endodontic treatment.

    Abstract

    Dissecting the causes and consequences of mandibular molar root fracture


    Endodontically treated mandibular molars are particularly susceptible for longitudinal root fractures. Iatrogenic and non-iatrogenic factors can contribute to the initiation or propagation of cracks, leading to fractures in endodontically treated teeth. Preexisting cracks are also common in the non-endodontically treated mandibular teeth. This clinical case-based lecture will review the causes and risk factors that increases the susceptibility of longitudinal root fractures in mandibular molar teeth. The key factors to be considered in determining the prognosis of teeth with preexisting cracks, and their treatment considerations will also be discussed.

    Abstract

    How to understand and manage complications after replantation of avulsed teeth


    How to understand and manage complications after replantation of teeth Lecture abstract Tooth avulsion is a serious traumatic dental injury associated with injuries to the periodontal ligament and pulp. Replantation of an avulsed permanent tooth is recommended. The lecture will give an overview of tooth avulsion and replantation and how to manage complications such as root resorption. While infection related root resorption today can be prevented or treated, ankylosis is the most serious complication for the tooth resulting in progressive replacement resorption of the root by bone and eventually causing loss of the tooth. Moreover, inhibition of growth and development of the alveolar process is also seen in young growing patients following ankylosis. The lecture will give a complete overview aiming at understanding the development, progression and management of ankylosis based on in vivo- and clinical studies and an overview of the literature. An overview of various less successful methods to manage ankylosis will be given and the method of choice today, decoronation, will be presented. The recent shift in paradigm from "save the tooth" to "preserve the bone" will be presented.

    Abstract

    Clinical Management of the Avulsed Tooth - Minimizing Resorption Complications


    Many practitioners feel that the eventual loss of an avulsed tooth is inevitable. While this might have been true a number of years ago, many clinical advances have been made that make long term success more probable. Treatment of the avulsed tooth is divided into the emergency visit; short-term follow-up visit (7-14 days) and long term follow-up. The focus of the emergency visit is to minimize and treat damage to the attachment apparatus. Time of replantation, new transport media, splinting techniques and anti- inflammatory drugs as well as optimal treatment for the open apex tooth will be discussed. At the short-term follow-up visit (7-14 days) the pulp status is assessed. The ability to predict if the pulp can re-vascularize; is necrotic (but not infected) or infected all result in different treatment protocols. This decision process and the most recent treatment guidelines will be described. Long-term follow up is essential since reversal of negative outcomes is often possible. Accepted long-term follow up protocol will be described.

    Abstract

    Overcoming the microbial challenges and harnessing the intrinsic dentin matrix bioactivity in the pursuit of optimizing regenerative endodontics.


    Pulp necrosis occurring in immature teeth as a result of caries and/ or traumatic dental injuries is accompanied by arrest of root development. Biological-based approaches exploiting the dynamics of patients' own stem cells and aiming at resumption of root formation have been clinically practiced for almost 2 decades now. The evidence accumulated so far has shown that after performing a regenerative endodontic procedure (REP), resolution of clinical signs and symptoms of root canal infection should be anticipated, while further root maturation may be less likely to occur. Factors that tip the scales are the presence of root canal bacteria (biofilms) in the root canal surviving the disinfection procedures and the stem cell guiding bioactive molecules released from the dentin matrix. Having as a starting point findings derived from the speaker's own scientific research, this presentation will address concerns related to the effectiveness of clinically practiced REPs. Special emphasis will be given to the bacterial modulation of stem cells. Considering that operator-independent factors, such as the biofilm structure, may alter the disinfection efficacy of irrigants, the aftermath of the anticipated encounter between bacteria and stem cells will be reviewed. In addition, ways to mitigate any adverse events occurring as a result of this encounter will be discussed. Following, the effect of dentin-derived bioactive molecules on the mineralization capacity of several stem cells populations will be presented. Based on these findings, a clinically applicable, financially affordable and regulatory feasible dentin-pulp tissue engineering approach will be proposed.

    Tips and tricks in Endodontics


    Tips and Tricks in Endodontic Although root canal treatment has a 95% success rate, dentists find it hard to do most specially on teeth that are difficult to manage in terms of anatomy and with confusing diagnosis. Arriving at the correct diagnosis plays an important role for the development of the best treatment plan and proper treatment decision. It is of high importance that the offending tooth be given the correct diagnosis and relieved the patient from the odontogenic pain. Other types of pain discomfort would mimic dental pain, thus a thorough understanding of the patient's response to the different diagnostic tests should be analyzed. Another cause of endodontic failure is the missed canal, thus resulting to persistence of periapical infection. Curved canals posed another problem too during biomechanical preparation. The aim of this lecture is to give some pointers on how to arrive at the correct diagnosis, by presenting cases on how the teeth were properly diagnosed. Tips in locating and managing extra canals will also be discussed together with some tricks in treating curved canals.

    Abstract

    Endo diagnostic - today and tomorrow


    There are many cases in dentistry when it is essential to know the pulp status to initiate the most conservative treatment and avoid complications and expances if a disease is not diagnosed and untreated. There is no ideal method of the pulp vitality. In our days thermal and electrical tests to determine pulp vitality can give a false results, because they can determine only pulp innervation but not vascularity. The vascular supply is more important to the determination of the pulp vitality than the sensory supply. Diagnostic methods to assess the blood supply (Isotope clearance, local hydrogen-gas desaturation, labelled microspheres) are still experimental. Pulse oxymetry and laser doppler flowmetry are non-invasive completely objective tests in evaluating pulp vascularisation. It could be useful in cases of impact injury where the blood supply remains intact but the nerve supply is damaged. Will be discussed about advantages and critical requirements of using pulse oximeter and laser doppler flowmetry in dentistry. In the lecture will be present a new developed pulse oximeter probe holder and clinical trials done at LUHS which prove its operation and effectiveness to determine the pulp vitality. Objectives: 1. The cold and electro tests are not objective to diagnose the status of the pulp. 2. In daily clinical practise we need more effective and objective method of evaluating dental pulp vitality. 3. Studys confirms the potential use of pulse oximeter as a dental pulp vitality teste

    Abstract

    Aiming for the Realization of Biological Endodontics


    The concept of Biological Endodontics (Bio-Endodontics) is to regulate the function of host cells, such as dental pulp cells, and osteoblasts and periodontal ligament cells around the root apex using growth factors and low molecular weight compounds, resulting in promotion of healing. Bio-Endodontics needs environment to allow the host cells to function for healing and regeneration. The environment can be developed by complete elimination of bacteria infected in dentin and root canals without impairing the function of host cells. Therefore, rubber dam isolation has to be done to interrupt the route of infection in an endodontic treatment. In addition, clinical bacterial examination with the anaerobic culture system should be conducted for the confirmation of the presence or absence of bacteria since the most of bacteria detected from apical periodontitis are anaerobic. Biological Endodontics that wants to be realized is effective pulp capping, and obturation with calcified tissue at apical site where the root canal system is complex using biologically active factors, such as antimicrobial peptides, dentin matrix proteins and growth factors. Bio-Endodontics will attract extensive attention as a remedy that impacts the development of dentistry from the view point of both basic and clinical sciences in the future.

    Abstract

    Endodontic treatments for permanent immature teeth: a conservative challenge


    Immature teeth represent a real challenge in terms of protocols and outcome. One's clinician concern is to preserve as long as possible the functionality of the considered teeth. All should be done to insure a good healing for the root, and over the endodontic field, to preserve a bone growing as good as possible during the growth. Different tools and technics (preserving vitality, use of apical plugs of bioceramic sealers, revitalization procedure) are available in such cases and require analysis to be used in the proper indications. The goal of this lecture is to decipher the best way to maintain a permanent immature tooth with a proven endodontic problem or even with a deep carie. Clinical examination and latest treatments based on approved protocols will be depicted.

    Abstract

    Facts about Cracks in Teeth: the Endo-Resto interface


    Endodontists can play a pivotal role in the diagnosis and the treatment planning of compromised teeth. In addition, the negative impact of occlusion on a structurally compromised and fractured teeth has been the subject of much controversy in terms of restoration, affect on the pulp, and prognosis. This discussion will examine the affect of occlusion on endodontic health and the consequence of coronal fractures in a tooth. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Evaluate the typical clinical presentation, radiographic features, and the pathophysiological course of tooth fractures. Analyse the negative effect of occlusal trauma on the enamel and dentine-pulp complex. Discuss treatment planning and current concepts in the restoration of fractured teeth.

    Abstract

    CBCT in Endodontics: current certainties and future prospects


    From the beginning Cone Beam CT has shown great advantages compared to the use of traditional computerized tomography systems (TC) thanks to the short-time acquisition of an entire volume of data without any geometric deformation and with exposure of the patient at relatively low radiation doses. In fact, even if the 3D examination has immediately acquired particular value for the specialists in implant treatment planning, in recent years it has been increasingly adopted by dentists in general. The CBCT allows the three-dimensional visualization of the endodontic and peri-radicular space allowing the clinician to interpret in the three planes of the endodontic anatomy space and the identification of a possible periapical pathology (especially where for obvious technical reasons the intraoral radiography does not evidence) thus providing more information for a correct endodontic approach. Today the clinician cannot do without this technology which together with other devices (intra-oral scanners, 3D printed etc.) have effectively introduced the digital age into the endodontic discipline.

    Abstract

    Vital pulp therapy for the permanent tooth - can it work?


    Vital pulp therapy for cariously exposed permanent teeth remains one of the most controversial areas in dentistry. Because a vital, functioning pulp is capable of initiating several defence mechanisms to protect the body from bacterial invasion, it is beneficial to preserve the vitality and health of an exposed pulp rather than replace it with a root filling material following pulp exposure. There is no consensus on the survival rate of formerly cariously exposed pulps. Observation time, judgement criteria, pulpotomy/pulp capping technique and, most importantly, pulpal status at the time of treatment, vary to a great extent amongst studies. In mature teeth, a pulp exposed by caries is usually removed and the root canals are cleaned, shaped and filled. Amongst the methods for preservation of a cariously exposed pulp, partial pulpotomy has yielded a markedly high success rate in young teeth. Major limitations in the success of vital pulp therapy in cariously exposed permanent teeth exist. The lack of predictability and long-term success greatly influence decision-making. The decision-making itself is unreliable primarily due to the difficulty of accurately diagnosing the ability of the pulp to repair.

    Abstract

    Esthetic restorations in case of root canal treated anteriors


    Discoloured anterior teeth can have a very negative effect on a patient's appearance. In the past, a lot of root canal treated teeth were reconstructed using metal posts and crowns. Today, more conservative strategies such as bleaching, fibre posts, composite restoration or minimal invasive veneers represent an alternative treatment option. On the other hand, endodontically treated teeth present impaired crown stiffness due to structural loss of hard tissues. Preserving intact coronal and radicular tooth structure, especially maintaining cervical tissue to create a ferrule effect, is considered to be crucial for the optimal biomechanical behaviour of restored teeth. The presence of ferrule has a positive effect on fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth. Aims: To review the current options of treatment of aesthetically and structurally compromised root canal treated teeth. Objectives: Understand the clinical challenges connected to partial or complete lack of ferrule. Define clear guidelines of treatment strategies to endodontists and operative dentists.

    "Root canal disinfection is the cornerstone to success of treatment": a line that all of us have read in every possible scientific paper we have read or have written. Yet, millions of dollars are invested, not in disinfection, but in instruments that prepare canals and materials that can fill canals. What is the current evidence base on root canal infections, methods to tackle those infections and how those methods influence the other aspects such as dentine and root filling interfaces with the dentine? What are the current challenges that compromise disinfection? What do we know about microbial communities? This lecture will comprehensively cover our work and those of others on the critical challenges that we face in achieving optimal root canal disinfection and our findings on preferred irrigation protocols for different root fillings.

    Abstract

    Clinical Applications of Lasers in Endodontics


    Laser technology for endodontic purposes is no longer unknown. Since the beginning of this century laser-activated irrigation (LAI) with erbium lasers (Er:YAG and Er,Cr:YSGG) came into the picture and this application proved to be very effective. Thanks to high energy content and specific characteristics of laser light other wavelengths such as Nd:YAG and the group of diode lasers can also be used for root canal cleaning and disinfection. Different wavelengths imply different laser-target interactions. The aim of this presentation is to unravel these differences (e.g. direct exposure of the root canal wall to the laser beam or not, can all wavelengths be used for laser-activated irrigation, ...) and to guide practitioners through the different clinical application protocols. In addition it is explained how laser use, though depending on the wavelength, can make the difference with the current non-laser based cleaning and disinfection protocols and finally. may satisfy the needs of modern endodontics.

    Abstract

    Common Errors in Endodontic Surgery


    Surgical endodontics refers to the branch of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of lesions of endodontic origin that do not respond to conventional endodontic therapy or that cannot be treated by conventional endodontic therapy. At the beginning of the '90s a new era of endodontic microsurgery began. Several major developments were introduced in microsurgical endodontics: the surgical operating microscope, microinstruments, ultrasonic root-end preparation and the use of biocompatible root-end filling materials. The concurrent development of better techniques has resulted in greater understanding of apical anatomy, greater treatment success and a more favorable patient response. If we agree that the success of endodontic therapy depends on the complete removal of all necrotic and infected tissue and on the complete sealing of the entire root canal system, then the reasons why the traditional surgical approach sometimes fails are obvious: the surgeon cannot predictably locate, clean and fill all the complex apical ramifications using traditional surgical techniques. These limitations can only be overcome with the use of a microscope with magnification and illumination, microsurgical instruments, ultrasonic retro-tips and new biocompatible materials. Unfortunately, it happens quite often to see failing surgical cases where several kind of errors have been made, and a large part of these errors have been made (in Italy and not only in Italy but almost everywhere) by Oral Surgeons and Maxillo-Facial Surgeons. The reason is that they never had any training in Endodontics and continue to perform their treatment in the old traditional way, without taking advantages of what we have today: microscope, ultrasonics, bioceramics, and last but for sure not least, the CBCT.

    Abstract

    Honing Microsurgical Technique


    This presentation will review advents in endodontics, especially microsurgery as the impact of technological advances in recent years are adopted in clinical practice. The battle to save a tooth is often lost before an endodontist is given a chance to give his/her consideration. Moreover, many referring dentists are unaware of the latest techniques in modern endodontics and their impact on the endodontic outcome and tooth retention. The first part of this presentation will look critically all the latest advents in endodontics and at the prognostic data available to evaluate predictability in endodontics and implantology. The speakers will then walk the audience through recent developments that are being investigated in the microsurgical procedure, from case selection to armamentarium and tweaking of clinical steps to make the procedure easier to execute and more effective. CBCT evaluation, Patient/microscope positioning, sinus and mental nerve management, Graft or not to graft will be discussed. If healthy bone is present Bone window technique is prescribed to preserve patient's bone which in routine microsurgery would be scarified to gain access to the site. Indications and step by step execution of this methodology will be discussed. In lieu of live surgical demonstration that was planned for the onsite event, video recordings of microsurgical cases with narrations will wrap up the presentation.

    Abstract

    Re-Consider Root Removal. Root Amputation: What is Possible?


    Traditionally root amputation procedures were used to salvage or prolong the life of the complex restoration which otherwise needs to be sacrificed. Often times the procedure is employed as an afterthought. Challenging clinical scenarios and past, dated experiences often times shape and limit the practitioner's understanding of what is attainable with root amputations. Actual patient centered outcome of these procedures continue to remain unanswered. This case based presentation will not only analyze the cases treated in the presenter's private practice setting but also review the clinical management.

    Abstract

    Re-Define Restorative Endodontics
    Modern Restorative practice in Endodontics.


    When a root-filled tooth fails to survive for the long term, these are categorized as restorative or Endodontic failures. Both these categories are within the domain of modern endodontic practice.

    If Endodontists care to take the credit for long term survival of endodontically treated teeth, then they need to take the responsibility to plan and perform the restorative treatment that follows the endodontic treatment. Post endodontic restorations can be complex and should consider the following factors: amount and quality of tooth structure, pre-endodontic procedures to enhance restorative prognosis, tooth position in the arch and anatomy and function. This clinical presentation will attempt to redefine the restorative practice in endodontics and discuss various options to restore root-filled teeth to enhance long term survival.

    Abstract

    Perforations: The Endodontic Dilemma


    Perforations can be defined as mechanical or pathologic communications between the root canal system and the external tooth surface. Prognosis of these defects is affected by multiple factors including position and size of the perforation, materials used for repair and time lapsed till the repair. This lecture will review available evidence-based literature. Several clinical cases will be presented and treatment protocols will be illustrated with long follow up. At conclusion, participants should be able to

    • List the different types of tooth perforations: causes, prevention and prognosis.
    • Discuss the different techniques and materials used to repair these defects.
    • Evaluate the contemporary evidence-based research about perforation.

    Abstract

    Hopeless tooth: Is it really hopeless?


    The aim of endodontic treatment is to prevent or cure apical periodontitis. Root canal treatment is a predictable procedure with high survival rate. However, procedural problems such as ledge formation, transportation of the canal, root perforation and extrusion of the irrigation solution can affect the prognosis negatively. On the other hand, patients demand the retention of their teeth more than ever before and this results in increasing necessity for retreatment. Today, success rate of retreatment is over 80%. Retreatment is easier with the help of Ni-Ti's, biomaterials and ultrasonic instruments. There is no doubt that both root canal treatment or retreatment of teeth are feasible and economical way to preserve function. In this lecture, follow-up of some tricky cases will be presented, discussed and the term "survival" will be reviewed.

    Abstract

    Non Surgical Root Canal Retreatment


    The revision of negative treatment outcomes is a significant part of current endodontic practice. The primary reason for a negative outcome with endodontic treatment is the persistence of bacteria within the intricacies of the root canal system. For intracanal infection, non-surgical retreatment is generally most beneficial because it seeks to eliminate the bacteria from within the root canal system. The premise that non-surgical retreatment improves the outcome of periapical surgery has been supported by both historical and current studies. Many factors must be considered in determining a course of treatment. One is the dentist's experience and clinical skills. Another requirement is having the necessary equipment and resources. The primary consideration is the patient's values and expectations. A positive outcome following non-surgical retreatment is influenced by many factors, and these have been comprehensively reviewed

    Abstract

    Considerations for Clinical Regenerative Endodontic Procedures


    Regenerative endodontic procedures (REPs) have emerged as a treatment option for immature necrotic teeth to allow the reestablishment of a newly formed vital tissue and enable continued root development. There is no standard protocol for REPs. Hence, the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), as well as the European Society of Endodontology (ESE), suggest Quality Clinical Guidelines for a regenerative procedure which was adapted in both of the case reports hereby described. The clinical protocol for REPs differs mostly in terms of sodium hypochlorite irrigant concentrations, intracanal medication, the method to induce bleeding and the use of biological matrices. The appropriate management of infected canals can create a favourable environment for tissue regeneration since open-apex immature teeth favour the reestablishment of a rich blood supply and stem cells recruiment. Considerable advances in disinfection techniques that combine the balance between antimicrobial effect and biocompatibility with mesenchymal stem cells have been developed. One of the major REPs goals is the resolution of clinical signs and symptoms. If clinicians use an effective disinfection protocol to eradicate infection, resolution of the apical periodontitis is expected. Therefore, REPs present a predictable treatment option. However, the outcomes of root maturogenesis after REPs are more unpredictable and depend on the survival of the apical papilla, HERS in immature permanent teeth, which is clinically difficult to assess following pulpal infection or dental trauma. REPs are often described as a conservative approach to maintain teeth with repair tissue. A repaired tissue, after disease resolution and reestablishment of some or all of the original tissue functions, should be a desirable goal. In these cases, clinicians, using regenerative endodontics knowledge, are able to guide endodontic repair, ultimately attaining the desirable patient- and clinician-centered outcomes. To date, a process of tooth repair can be an acceptable outcome in clinical regenerative endodontics. Therefore, an understanding of the concept, difficulties and different outcomes is important for the clinician.

    Abstract

    Is Endodontic Regeneration The Ultimate Treatment For Immature Necrotic Traumatized Teeth?


    Is Endodontic Regeneration The Ultimate Treatment For Immature Necrotic Traumatized Teeth? Arieh Y. Kaufman, DMD School for Dental Specialties Rambam Health Center, Haifa, Israel Dental trauma is a world common occurrence among young children. Any delay in providing an appropriate treatment may have serious negative consequences. Historically, apexification using calcium hydroxide (CaOH) was the main treatment for necrotic immature teeth. However, this treatment has many shortcomings. To overcome the drawbacks of CaOH apexification Torabinejad and Chivian suggested to use MTA plug to obturate the root canal end. This protocol became the gold standard. However, both apexification techniques, has serious drawback as they don't allow further maturation of the teeth. The teeth remain with thin walls and short roots. In 2004 Bunchs and Trope describe a protocol that was later adapted by The European Society of Endodontology (ESE) and The American Association of Endodontics (AAE). This protocol named "Regenerative Endodontics" has many advantages over both apexification techniques as it enables predictable fast periapical healing, it allows further development and maturation of the necrotic teeth, and have the potential to arrest invasive external root resorption. In some cases, positive vitality signs are regained. This lecture will describe the indications and the protocol how to perform Endodontic Regeneration. Pros and cons will be discussed as well as using antibiotics versus CAOH and the different kinds of scaffolds.

    Abstract

    Root resorption, why and how to treat


    Root resorption is very rare disease in the dental field. However, when dentist faced root resorption in the clinic without knowledge, it is very difficult situation to solve. Root resorption can be classified into external root resorption and internal root resorption according to developing place of resorption. Also, root resorption is classified into surface resorption, inflammatory resorption, replacement resorption according to developing reason of resorption. In this lecture, we can understand the cause and reason of root resorption development and can know how to prevent and treat the root resorption

    Abstract

    Root canal disinfection using magnetic drug delivery systems.


    Objective: When complex microflora invade the root canal space, there is usually colonization inside the dentinal tubules, isthmi, accessory canals and apical ramification that cannot then be easily reached by endodontic instruments, irrigants or intra-canal medicaments. Therefore introducing an antibacterial drug deep to the dentinal tubules may be one of the solutions. Different materials were introduced as chitosan, silver ions and iron ions. The problem was how to attract these ions which in nano state to the deep areas of the dentinal tubules. The use of magnetic field can potentially enhance the penetration of these magnetic nanoparticles. Material and methods. A research performed in college of dentistry university of Baghdad, used ferro fluid of chitosan coated iron oxide nanoparticles functionalized by glycine hydrochloride to penetrate the dentinal tubules in root canal system attracted by external magnetic field and produce an antimicrobial action against the microorganisms in this deep area. The Ferro fluid was prepared and introduced as an irrigant to the root canal for 3 minutes under external magnetic field of two opposite magnets, then the canals were dried with absorbent paper point. The degree of penetration in the dentinal tubules was assessed by scanning electron microscope. Results. It was shown that there was a high penetration depth of chitosan coated iron oxide nanoparticles inside the dentinal tubules in each third of the root canal. The penetration was 720.9, 527.9 and 315.4 μm in coronal, middle, and apical third respectively. Conclusion. This procedure ensures penetration of antibacterial drugs deep in the dentinal tubules in the remote areas of the root canal to decrease the possibility of future reinfection.

    Abstract

    Treatment of chronic apical abscess, in single or multiple session?


    Chronic apical abscess is a form of apical periodontitis, caused by a bacterial infection of the root canal and characterized by periapical radiolucency associated with an intraoral or extraoral sinus tract. Teeth with chronic apical abscesses and sinus tracts show a very complex infectious pattern in the apical root canal system, with predominance of biofilms, in many cases extending to the periapical lesion to form an extraradicular infection. Many studies have reported that the presence of a sinus tract does not significantly influence the prognosis of the endodontic treatment of teeth with apical periodontitis. However, other studies showed a worse prognosis for teeth with a sinus tract than teeth without a sinus tract. It will be presented a retrospective study on 154 teeth in 144 patients treated over a period of 20 years by a single operator, where the clinical and radiographic outcome of endodontic treatment of infected teeth with intraoral sinus tract and chronic apical abscesses was evaluated.

    Abstract

    Research Topics and Methods for Endodontic Nickel-Titanium Instruments and Clinical Implications


    Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) endodontic files have brought a big step toward "efficient" practice of endodontic procedure. The NiTi files help clinicians not only reduce their working time but also increase the clinical success rate with minimal procedural errors. Now various kinds of NiTi instruments are the "essential" equipment for the root canal preparation over stainless-steel instruments. Recently introduced instruments made of heat treated alloy in various designs made it possible to shape the root canals with minimal number of instruments and to preserve the root dentin integrity. Clinicians need to understand the characteristics of each instrument system which may bring a different results of root canal shape including potential aberrations and risk of fracture tendency. This lecture will give an insight based on research evidences which implicates the fracture resistance of the instruments and how the files are developed with scientific and clinical considerations. Followings are the main contents; 1) Effects from geometry on Mechanical performance & Fracture resistance, 2) Effects from geometry on Root dentin integrity, 3) Effects from Heat treatment & Surface Texture on Mechanical performance & Fracture resistance, 4) Research contents with Clinical Implications & Future Study, 5) Methodological Trials with Clinical Relevance.

    Abstract

    Clinical implications of bending and cyclic fatigue resistance tests


    Nickel-titanium (NiTi) instruments are frequently subjected to bending and cyclic fatigue resistance tests. It is widely assumed that instruments with superior flexibility and fatigue fracture resistance might be a better option for the preparation of curved canals.This presentation will discuss:

    • The different bending and cyclic fatigue tests.
    • The correlation between the results of these tests, and the shaping ability of NiTi instruments and their fracture rates.
    • The limitations and clinical implications of bending and cyclic fatigue tests.
    • Clinical cases with emphasis on information derived from these tests in specific situations.

    Abstract

    Problem Solving With Endodontic Instrumentation


    The internal anatomy of human teeth consists of a highly complicated network of multi-planar curved and anastomotic channel spaces, as seen in studies of root canal anatomy. Navigating efficiently, safely and predictably with instruments through this anastomotic canal network can be really challenging. Recently, digital navigation systems and new techniques were introduced to help the clinician solve the problems of endodontic instrumentation. This lecture aims to offer solutions in different clinical instrumentation problems. Learning Objectives To suggest instrumentation solutions for :

    1. Curved canals
    2. Double curved canals
    3. Splitting canals
    4. Interconnecting canals
    5. Ledged canals
    6. Blocked cana

    Abstract

    Modern Endodontics the Science Behind Being Conservative


    As endodontists, we all know that our labor goes beyond the limits of the root canal system, each one of our treatments is intended to restore, or to maintain patients' oral health. From an optimistic point of view, endodontist's advisable goal should be a first step intervention focused in a conservative treatment of pulp disease. Nevertheless, when is not possible to maintain the pulpo-dentinal complex alive, to perform root canal treatments without compromising the remaining dental structure becomes a key challenge to overcome. The main goal of the lecture is to present science based clinical techniques, applied with new generation armamentarium and biomaterials for practicing the minimal invasive endodontics art.

    Abstract

    Regenerative Endodontics: Clinical Challenges


    Clinicians are often faced with the challenge of treating immature teeth with pulpal necrosis. Root canal treatment of immature teeth is always challenging. Root canal instrumentation of thin walls and obturation of widely opened apex are challenging. In addition, risk of vertical root fracture due to thin root canal wall may lead to tooth loss. These cases have been traditionally treated with apexification procedures. In the last decade, regenerative endodontic procedures (REPs) have emerged as an alternative for treating immature teeth. Although both procedures have the primary goal of resolving the disease process, REPs aim to achieve additional goals related to gain further root development. Therefore, these procedures share one goal but are fundamentally different. The REPs involved non-instrumentation, irrigations and triple antibiotics or calcium hydroxide have been used as intra-canal medication. The patient natural scaffold was created, the Bioceramics was used as a capping material and the tooth will be restored. From Mahidol study, the outcome of Regenerative Endodontic Procedures was extremely high with more than 95% in contrast to many studies. We innovated many clinical technics and developed our own guideline for REPs. The new clinical research data will be included in this lecture.

    Abstract

    Revitalisation for immature Permanent Incisors-Does science support its continuing use?


    Revitalisation has now been in the clinical domain for over a decade. But are we any closer to accepting this with a degree of confidence reserved for a method that is supported by strongest possible evidence? We are not much closer to developing cost-effective scaffolds, or stem cell therapies or signaling molecules for clinical use, depending instead on a coarse methodology which is aimed to "fill up" the root canal with something but not exactly with what we want to be present inside a root canal. Root development after revitalisation is unpredictable, with more predictability when the treatment is performed in incisors with developmental defects such as dens invaginatus. Why is here a better outcome for these in comparison to teeth that become non vital due to trauma? The role of HERS will be explored and the speaker will try and speculate why these differences may exist from a perspective of a paediatric dentist with 3 decades of experience in dental trauma. If the aim of performing revitalization in immature non vital incisors is to achieve continued root development then a critical evaluation of this is required. Many of us jumped on the band wagon of revitalization, is it perhaps time to consider getting off? Perhaps in the future when more sophisticated, and cost-effective therapies are introduced, one's that respect the principles of structured tissue engineering, we can reconsider this treatment option as one of choice, rather of last resort.

    Abstract

    To treat or not to treat- management of post treatment periapical periodontitis


    Teeth presenting with post treatment asymptomatic apical periodontitis could present a challenge to patient and operator. The benefits of root canal retreatment in these cases should be balanced against the risks and costs and not exclusively rely on promising outcome reports. The decision is even more complicated when considering new insights about the dynamics of periapical lesions, namely as observed by CBCT. This presentation will discuss the dilemmas we are faced with when approaching post treatment disease, and try to present an alternative approach based on individual patients' values and situation rather than the presence or size of a periapical lesion. Different options will be discussed such as avoidance of treatment, monitoring protocols, partial retreatments, and alternative solutions.

    Abstract

    Isolation complex cases management: clinical strategies to control the Asepsis


    Preventing bacteria contaminate the root canal system during the Endodontic treatment is really important to get a positive outcome of the therapy. The proper rubber dam application is responsible for the Asepsis control and it increases the success rate of the Endodontic treatments: the scientific community agree on a comprehensive operative field isolation is considered as one of the key steps for a predictable clinical result and it represents a simple and affordable solution for the practitioners who want to perform their job according to correct biological and ethical guidelines. During the daily practice we often face challenging cases to isolate as prosthetic stumps or teeth with a crown severely damaged by caries or fracture: even in these situations we do always remember the role of the isolation in the Asepsis and we do develop a strategy to get a proper application of the rubber dam and perfect leakage control. This is possible thanks to the the knowledge of armamentarium and techniques but even thanks a treatment plan that take care of the importance of the Asepsis. When it comes to complex cases, it's important to highlight that once the field is isolated the clinical case will be transformed from complex to simple with noticeable benefits for the operative procedures to follow. The aim of the lecture is to share clinical strategies to easily get a leakage free operative field using the rubber dam even in complex cases.

    Abstract

    Cell sources for regenerative endodontics


    Dental pulp tissue is composed of cell types of multiple embryonic germ layer origins, hence, to regenerate pulp tissue there is a need for stem or progenitor cell populations with bona fide differentiation capacity. A key hurdle limiting progress in the field of regenerative endodontics has been the identification of such populations of cells. Patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are a powerful and inexhaustible source of cells, which can differentiate into cells from all three embryonic germ layers origin. In addition to pluripotentcy, their derivation from adult somatic cells overcomes the ethical problems associated with embryonic stem cells and avoids the immunologic rejection associated with the use of allogeneic donor cells. This presentation will discuss the potential of iPSCs as an alternative source of cells to regenerate dental pulp tissue. Furthermore, recent in-vitro and in-vivo studies will be reviewed in addition to recent findings by the presenter's research group.

    Dentine Substrate Modification a Translational Review from Experimental Research to Clinical Regenerative Endodontic.


    The process of chemical conditioning on radicular dentin for regenerative endodontics comes with tackling different challenges such as disinfection, dilution of organic tissue, penetration capacity and dentin chelation. When root growth stops, chemical conditioning is the primary form of disinfection, and the formation of a suitable microenvironment conducive to adherence, survival and differentiation of cellular components that enter from the apical papilla, to complete the therapeutic cycle. The NaOCl oxidizes and denatures the collagen matrix while EDTA demineralizes and increases dentin erosion in a substrate of less thickness and low mineralization. Consequently, recent recommendations suggest decreasing the irrigant concentration or exploring other alternatives solutions to tissue preservation. In the current scenario, research is focused on developing strategies for chemical conditioning that meet the therapeutic objectives and minimize chemically and physically induced damage to the dentinal matrix and develop all the molecular abilities that it allows. Chitosan (CS), a cationic polymer of natural origin, non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable with antimicrobial, chelating, and remineralizing properties, has motivated its research as an irrigation alternative in endodontics. An evidence-based review identified the therapeutic approach for 18 immature permanent teeth with pulp necrosis. The clinical outcome of the regenerative treatment was evaluated in periods of up to 10 years, based on two clinical parameters: mineralization changes and complete restoration of the nociception of the dentine-pulp complex. Based on clinical experience, the objective of this presentation was to analyze in-vitro the physical, chemical and molecular changes generated by the use of irrigant solutions on radicular dentine.

    Abstract

    Potential of Bioceramic-signalling based in Regenerative Endodontic


    Regenerative Medicine consists of a triad tissue engineering. Regenerative medicine is used as a regenerative therapy to find new alternative materials. Currently, the gold standard of regenerative therapy is autograft. The use of autografts can cause negative complications and the limited number of sources. One of the materials that can be used as an alternative is alloplastic material, including bioceramic material. Bioceramic based scaffold can release Ca2 + and PO43- ions during the process of forming new bone. Bioceramic materials on the market such as Hydroxyapatite (HA), β-Tricalcium Phosphate (β-TCP), and a combination of HA/β-TCP to form Biphasic Calcium Phosphate (BCP). The weakness of bioceramic based scaffold is low mechanical properties and limited in osteo-induction properties. To resolve its weaknesses by adding doping using Sr2+ ions and Growth Factor as signalling from Stem Cells. Endodontic therapy in the future toward tissue engineering to repair damaged tissue. The most important in tissue engineering is signal, scaffold, and cells. Therefore Bioceramic-signalling based is potential in Regenerative Endodontic.

    Abstract

    Contemporary Root Canal Obturation: Trend or Necessity?


    Success in endodontic treatment is based on the equally important triad of debridement, disinfection, and obturation. When a step in the endodontic or restorative procedure is inadequate, apical seal is adversely affected. The ultimate goal of endodontic obturation has remained the same for the past 50 years: achieve a fluid-tight seal of the root canal system, from the coronal opening to the apical termination. Three-dimensional obturation of the radicular space is essential to long-term success. For this purpose, several techniques have been advocated for obturation. An ideal filling technique should assure complete filling of the canal without overfill and with minimal or no voids. Thus, it is important to select an obturation technique that offers consistency and is easy to use. Most of obturation studies show that all materials and techniques result in some degree of microscopic voids. Although a poorly obturated canal and voids are correlated, radiographic evaluation of obturation does not correlate well with obturation imperfections neither confirm an adequate seal. Fortunately, clinical success rates after endodontic treatment are high despite the varied conditions, materials, and techniques employed. An alternative recent approach is to minimize structural changes during root canal therapy, which may result in a new strategy that is the 'minimally invasive endodontics'. There are, however, currently no developed specified protocols for minimally invasive endodontics. Our presentation will review current obturation techniques and evaluation methods highlighting the conservation of tooth structure to enhance longevity after root canal treatment and providing an overview of this new endodontic paradigm. We will also discuss actual success rate in endodontic treatment based on clinical reliable studies.

    Abstract

    Clinical considerations in the management of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure


    Management of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure has been considered as one of the controversies in Endodontic. Traditionally, pulpectomy has been considered as a treatment of choice. To date, vital pulp therapy has been illustrated as a successful alternative treatment. Ideally, dental practitioners should use the best current available evidence to support their decision making. This lecture will provide the updated knowledge on several key factors for successful treatment of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure. The topics include case selection criteria, treatment techniques, usage of bioceramic materials and evidences of clinical studies. The current guideline of treatment of vital permanent teeth with carious pulp exposure will be discussed.

    Abstract

    Contemporary Endodontic Treatment Outcomes Explained


    The recent increase in publication of outcome studies, use of various outcome terminologies and inconsistent results, have all combined to obscure the actual outcomes of contemporary endodontic treatment modalities. This is confusing to clinicians, and it may act to skew treatment decisions. To navigate the existing ambiguity, it is helpful first to focus on the main purposes of treatment outcomes, and second to define outcomes in relation to explicit outcome goals that may be identified as primary by informed individual patients. Equipped with this perspective, the definitive, relevant outcomes of specific endodontic treatment modalities are then determined by structured appraisal of all published studies. Those studies that satisfy specific methodological requirements are selected as representing the CURRENT BEST EVIDENCE for each specific treatment modality and their reported outcomes are then summarized and effectively communicated to inform treatment decisions. Following the above strategy, this lecture will highlight the outcomes of endodontic treatment in regard to periapical health, symptom-free function and survival/retention, based on the current best evidence. Clinical variables that may influence the outcomes (outcome predictors) will also be listed as supported by the current best evidence.

    Abstract

    The key to success in non-surgical retreatment


    Initial root canal treatment does not always result in healing for a multitude of reasons. The first step to success in retreatment is to make an accurate diagnosis, locating the source of the problem that the patient is having. Based on the diagnosis, a proper treatment plan should be made accordingly. The second step includes removal of the infection form the root canal system responsible for the non-healing. Bacteria may persist following initial treatment due to the areas that were inaccessible to instrumentation and irrigation. The main causes of the initial treatment failure include inaccurate diagnosis, lack of tooth isolation; inadequate cleaning, shaping, and irrigation; and an incomplete obturation. In addition, iatrogenic accidents such as separated instruments and ledge formation can also be serious problems leading to failure because of the inability to disinfect the canal system apical to those obstructions. In retreatment those mishaps that can adversely impact the treatment outcomes should be properly managed. Therefore, in the lecture, the ideal management of those nonhealing cases will be discussed and presented.

    Abstract

    Microscopic Endodontics, its never too late


    Broken files removal can be considered as the most challenging procedure in endodontics to be done for the patient. Because of the difficulties of vision and the tiny space we have to deal with inside the root canal. Usually to remove a broken file we have to remove a significant amount of dentine which will result in root weakening and risk of fracture for the future prognosis. Nowadays is it possible to use special devices with predictable and repeatable technique to remove the broken files in a conservative manner without destroying the roots? and why the old devices and techniques were aggressive? will see all the details during this lecture.

    Abstract

    Ultrasonics in non-surgical retreatments: when, why and how.


    Root canal retreatment have always been considered as a challenge due to the various level of difficulty dictated by the nature of the filling materials as well as the various mishaps made in the primary procedure. These factors can make retreatment a stressful and time-consuming procedure. The development of new techniques and equipment such as microscope and ultrasonics have enhanced the success rate and rendered US increasingly useful in endodontics. In this presentation, we will review briefly different type of ultrasonics and focus on piezoelectric technology. The latest clinical advances in both ultrasonic equipment and tips, the numerous uses of US in clinical endodontics will be exposed through their clinical implications. A didactical description of clinical procedures used at the different stages of retreatment will be exposed. Coronal disassembly; removal of root filling materials or separated instruments and posts; localization of untreated or missed canals and irrigant activation, will be reviewed extensively along with clinical tips and guidelines. At conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Describe the different types of ultrasonics
    • Perform several methods for coronal disassembly and canal exploration upon non-surgical retreatment.
    • Accomplish successful post removal of Pre-formed SS, gold, ceramic and fiber.
    • Master a wide range of clinical techniques to safely remove different root canal materials, carriers, separated instruments and silver points without compromising the outcome of the retreatment procedures.
    • Evaluate the risks and prognosis of each treatment option

    Abstract

    Bypassing broken files in daily endodontic practice


    Endodontic treatment forms most of our daily dental practice, so it is very important to be performed well in order to minimize procedural errors and to preserve more teeth in the oral cavity which is the main mission of dentists. Due to the increased use of rotary files instrumentation, more accidents of files breakage inside root canals start to show, making dealing with such cases a nightmare for dentists especially those that do not have the sufficient training or equipment to retrieve it. One of the treatment protocols to deal with broken files is trying to bypass it in order to be able to reach deeper canal areas apically to clean, disinfect, and 3D obturate. But, bypassing broken file may not be easy as it looks, and applying some procedures will increase the possibility for bypass with safe mode. On the other hand, dentists must be aware of the cases that are not indicated for such treatment protocol and shift for file removal to achieve more predictable results. This presentation will highlight the indications and contraindications, special protocol, for safe broken file bypass through presenting literature and many cases illustrated with clinical photos and videos.

    Abstract

    Dental or mental - An endodontist looks at orofacial pain


    As clinicians, we are called upon to diagnose facial pain on a daily basis. For the most part, diagnosis is a routine procedure, accomplished without too much difficulty. Most painful conditions follow certain predictable patterns and exhibit specific signs and symptoms, which, when observed, make diagnosis relatively easy. Patients do present, however, for whom diagnosis is difficult and where pain patterns do not follow recognised norms. Many of these difficult cases can have unsatisfactory outcomes for both patients and practitioners. Complex pain cases are easier to diagnose if attention is paid to closely observing the patient and knowing which questions to ask. Mistakes often occur when clinicians approach diagnosis too quickly without first analysing the patient's response to questioning, and when attempts are made to make the facts fit a diagnosis rather than to make the diagnosis fit the facts. This lecture addresses difficulties in assessing patients with dental and orofacial pain, not by describing the various painful conditions, but by addressing the questions that need to be asked and then analysing responses to these (What should I ask? What does this answer mean? What else do I need to know?). The background for this presentation has been obtained from decades of watching and listening to patients in pain culminating in the publication in 2017 of Diagnosing Dental and Orofacial Pain, A Clinical Manual. Moule, A.J and Hicks, M.L. (eds). Wiley Blackwell, Oxford, UK. Numerous case histories illustrating painful orofacial conditions are presented in a problem-solving manner. Emphasis is placed on the descriptors used by patients and to the verbal and non-verbal responses to questioning.

    Abstract

    Resorption - clinical management and outcomes


    There are 11 different types of resorption - three internal and eight external types. In this presentation, the three most common types will be discussed - that is, external inflammatory (infection-related) resorption, external replacement (ankylosis-related) resorption and external invasive (cervical) resorption. Each type of resorption has different aetiologies, pathogeneses and management strategies. External inflammatory resorption is related to infection of the root canal system so root canal treatment is the usual way to treat this type of resorption - however, there are some modifications to routine root canal treatment that can improve the predictability of the outcomes and the long-term prognosis of the tooth. External replacement resorption typically follows ankylosis and it cannot usually be treated so it is important to know how to prevent it from occurring wherever possible. External invasive resorption often occurs with an obvious cause which complicates treatment. It is also an insidious process that is poorly understood by many practitioners. It typically follows several stages - in the early stages, it can usually be treated by cauterisation, curettage and restoration but the more advanced cases are often better left untreated with simple and regular monitoring to determine their progress and to decide if, and when, to extract the tooth. This lecture will discuss and demonstrate the diagnosis and management of these types of resorption and the longer-term outcomes of the recommended management strategies will be demonstrated.

    Abstract

    Factors Influencing Apical Periodontitis from the Clinical Work to the Host Response


    Apical periodontitis (AP) is an inflammatory disease developed as a reaction to the endodontic infection within the root canal. AP should be resolved with a correct endodontic treatment which takes care of the infection and promotes healing. Nevertheless, the incidence of persistent AP (PAP) in treated teeth is increasing. Several clinical factors are related to persistent AP, and most of them have to do with residual infection internal or external to the root canal. Yet there have been documented preoperative conditions that influence healing of AP, and are not necessarily connected with persistent infection. In recent years, the impact of endodontic infection on general health has been the object of a good amount of research and to date the conclusion is that apical periodontitis is associated to cardiovascular diseases. Given these premises is time to focus also on the impact that individual health and genetic predisposition may have on healing response to endodontic treatment. Chronic systemic conditions affecting the patients, and medications (mostly immune-modulators) may influence the reactions and outcome of the treatment we perform and offer an interesting insight on unknown aspects of the patient response to endodontic treatment. At the same time the research is bringing to our attention how the severity of the host response may influence healing of AP and how future protocols may enhance healing by complementing endodontic treatment with medications. Last, recent studies observed a role of both systemic and local immuno-modulatory therapies in improving the healing response of AP to the endodontic treatment.

    Abstract

    Dissecting the causes and consequences of mandibular molar root fracture


    Endodontically treated mandibular molars are particularly susceptible for longitudinal root fractures. Iatrogenic and non-iatrogenic factors can contribute to the initiation or propagation of cracks, leading to fractures in endodontically treated teeth. Preexisting cracks are also common in the non-endodontically treated mandibular teeth. This clinical case-based lecture will review the causes and risk factors that increases the susceptibility of longitudinal root fractures in mandibular molar teeth. The key factors to be considered in determining the prognosis of teeth with preexisting cracks, and their treatment considerations will also be discussed.

    Abstract

    How to understand and manage complications after replantation of avulsed teeth


    How to understand and manage complications after replantation of teeth Lecture abstract Tooth avulsion is a serious traumatic dental injury associated with injuries to the periodontal ligament and pulp. Replantation of an avulsed permanent tooth is recommended. The lecture will give an overview of tooth avulsion and replantation and how to manage complications such as root resorption. While infection related root resorption today can be prevented or treated, ankylosis is the most serious complication for the tooth resulting in progressive replacement resorption of the root by bone and eventually causing loss of the tooth. Moreover, inhibition of growth and development of the alveolar process is also seen in young growing patients following ankylosis. The lecture will give a complete overview aiming at understanding the development, progression and management of ankylosis based on in vivo- and clinical studies and an overview of the literature. An overview of various less successful methods to manage ankylosis will be given and the method of choice today, decoronation, will be presented. The recent shift in paradigm from "save the tooth" to "preserve the bone" will be presented.

    Abstract

    Clinical Management of the Avulsed Tooth - Minimizing Resorption Complications


    Many practitioners feel that the eventual loss of an avulsed tooth is inevitable. While this might have been true a number of years ago, many clinical advances have been made that make long term success more probable. Treatment of the avulsed tooth is divided into the emergency visit; short-term follow-up visit (7-14 days) and long term follow-up. The focus of the emergency visit is to minimize and treat damage to the attachment apparatus. Time of replantation, new transport media, splinting techniques and anti- inflammatory drugs as well as optimal treatment for the open apex tooth will be discussed. At the short-term follow-up visit (7-14 days) the pulp status is assessed. The ability to predict if the pulp can re-vascularize; is necrotic (but not infected) or infected all result in different treatment protocols. This decision process and the most recent treatment guidelines will be described. Long-term follow up is essential since reversal of negative outcomes is often possible. Accepted long-term follow up protocol will be described.

    Abstract

    Overcoming the microbial challenges and harnessing the intrinsic dentin matrix bioactivity in the pursuit of optimizing regenerative endodontics.


    Pulp necrosis occurring in immature teeth as a result of caries and/ or traumatic dental injuries is accompanied by arrest of root development. Biological-based approaches exploiting the dynamics of patients' own stem cells and aiming at resumption of root formation have been clinically practiced for almost 2 decades now. The evidence accumulated so far has shown that after performing a regenerative endodontic procedure (REP), resolution of clinical signs and symptoms of root canal infection should be anticipated, while further root maturation may be less likely to occur. Factors that tip the scales are the presence of root canal bacteria (biofilms) in the root canal surviving the disinfection procedures and the stem cell guiding bioactive molecules released from the dentin matrix. Having as a starting point findings derived from the speaker's own scientific research, this presentation will address concerns related to the effectiveness of clinically practiced REPs. Special emphasis will be given to the bacterial modulation of stem cells. Considering that operator-independent factors, such as the biofilm structure, may alter the disinfection efficacy of irrigants, the aftermath of the anticipated encounter between bacteria and stem cells will be reviewed. In addition, ways to mitigate any adverse events occurring as a result of this encounter will be discussed. Following, the effect of dentin-derived bioactive molecules on the mineralization capacity of several stem cells populations will be presented. Based on these findings, a clinically applicable, financially affordable and regulatory feasible dentin-pulp tissue engineering approach will be proposed.

    Abstract

    Tips and tricks in Endodontics


    Tips and Tricks in Endodontic Although root canal treatment has a 95% success rate, dentists find it hard to do most specially on teeth that are difficult to manage in terms of anatomy and with confusing diagnosis. Arriving at the correct diagnosis plays an important role for the development of the best treatment plan and proper treatment decision. It is of high importance that the offending tooth be given the correct diagnosis and relieved the patient from the odontogenic pain. Other types of pain discomfort would mimic dental pain, thus a thorough understanding of the patient's response to the different diagnostic tests should be analyzed. Another cause of endodontic failure is the missed canal, thus resulting to persistence of periapical infection. Curved canals posed another problem too during biomechanical preparation. The aim of this lecture is to give some pointers on how to arrive at the correct diagnosis, by presenting cases on how the teeth were properly diagnosed. Tips in locating and managing extra canals will also be discussed together with some tricks in treating curved canals.

    Abstract

    Endo diagnostic - today and tomorrow


    There are many cases in dentistry when it is essential to know the pulp status to initiate the most conservative treatment and avoid complications and expances if a disease is not diagnosed and untreated. There is no ideal method of the pulp vitality. In our days thermal and electrical tests to determine pulp vitality can give a false results, because they can determine only pulp innervation but not vascularity. The vascular supply is more important to the determination of the pulp vitality than the sensory supply. Diagnostic methods to assess the blood supply (Isotope clearance, local hydrogen-gas desaturation, labelled microspheres) are still experimental. Pulse oxymetry and laser doppler flowmetry are non-invasive completely objective tests in evaluating pulp vascularisation. It could be useful in cases of impact injury where the blood supply remains intact but the nerve supply is damaged. Will be discussed about advantages and critical requirements of using pulse oximeter and laser doppler flowmetry in dentistry. In the lecture will be present a new developed pulse oximeter probe holder and clinical trials done at LUHS which prove its operation and effectiveness to determine the pulp vitality. Objectives: 1. The cold and electro tests are not objective to diagnose the status of the pulp. 2. In daily clinical practise we need more effective and objective method of evaluating dental pulp vitality. 3. Studys confirms the potential use of pulse oximeter as a dental pulp vitality teste

    Abstract

    Aiming for the Realization of Biological Endodontics


    The concept of Biological Endodontics (Bio-Endodontics) is to regulate the function of host cells, such as dental pulp cells, and osteoblasts and periodontal ligament cells around the root apex using growth factors and low molecular weight compounds, resulting in promotion of healing. Bio-Endodontics needs environment to allow the host cells to function for healing and regeneration. The environment can be developed by complete elimination of bacteria infected in dentin and root canals without impairing the function of host cells. Therefore, rubber dam isolation has to be done to interrupt the route of infection in an endodontic treatment. In addition, clinical bacterial examination with the anaerobic culture system should be conducted for the confirmation of the presence or absence of bacteria since the most of bacteria detected from apical periodontitis are anaerobic. Biological Endodontics that wants to be realized is effective pulp capping, and obturation with calcified tissue at apical site where the root canal system is complex using biologically active factors, such as antimicrobial peptides, dentin matrix proteins and growth factors. Bio-Endodontics will attract extensive attention as a remedy that impacts the development of dentistry from the view point of both basic and clinical sciences in the future.

    Abstract

    Endodontic treatments for permanent immature teeth: a conservative challenge


    Immature teeth represent a real challenge in terms of protocols and outcome. One's clinician concern is to preserve as long as possible the functionality of the considered teeth. All should be done to insure a good healing for the root, and over the endodontic field, to preserve a bone growing as good as possible during the growth. Different tools and technics (preserving vitality, use of apical plugs of bioceramic sealers, revitalization procedure) are available in such cases and require analysis to be used in the proper indications. The goal of this lecture is to decipher the best way to maintain a permanent immature tooth with a proven endodontic problem or even with a deep carie. Clinical examination and latest treatments based on approved protocols will be depicted.

    Abstract

    CBCT in Endodontics: current certainties and future prospects


    From the beginning Cone Beam CT has shown great advantages compared to the use of traditional computerized tomography systems (TC) thanks to the short-time acquisition of an entire volume of data without any geometric deformation and with exposure of the patient at relatively low radiation doses. In fact, even if the 3D examination has immediately acquired particular value for the specialists in implant treatment planning, in recent years it has been increasingly adopted by dentists in general. The CBCT allows the three-dimensional visualization of the endodontic and peri-radicular space allowing the clinician to interpret in the three planes of the endodontic anatomy space and the identification of a possible periapical pathology (especially where for obvious technical reasons the intraoral radiography does not evidence) thus providing more information for a correct endodontic approach. Today the clinician cannot do without this technology which together with other devices (intra-oral scanners, 3D printed etc.) have effectively introduced the digital age into the endodontic discipline.

    Abstract

    Vital pulp therapy for the permanent tooth - can it work?


    Vital pulp therapy for cariously exposed permanent teeth remains one of the most controversial areas in dentistry. Because a vital, functioning pulp is capable of initiating several defence mechanisms to protect the body from bacterial invasion, it is beneficial to preserve the vitality and health of an exposed pulp rather than replace it with a root filling material following pulp exposure. There is no consensus on the survival rate of formerly cariously exposed pulps. Observation time, judgement criteria, pulpotomy/pulp capping technique and, most importantly, pulpal status at the time of treatment, vary to a great extent amongst studies. In mature teeth, a pulp exposed by caries is usually removed and the root canals are cleaned, shaped and filled. Amongst the methods for preservation of a cariously exposed pulp, partial pulpotomy has yielded a markedly high success rate in young teeth. Major limitations in the success of vital pulp therapy in cariously exposed permanent teeth exist. The lack of predictability and long-term success greatly influence decision-making. The decision-making itself is unreliable primarily due to the difficulty of accurately diagnosing the ability of the pulp to repair.

    Abstract

    Esthetic restorations in case of root canal treated anteriors


    Discoloured anterior teeth can have a very negative effect on a patient's appearance. In the past, a lot of root canal treated teeth were reconstructed using metal posts and crowns. Today, more conservative strategies such as bleaching, fibre posts, composite restoration or minimal invasive veneers represent an alternative treatment option. On the other hand, endodontically treated teeth present impaired crown stiffness due to structural loss of hard tissues. Preserving intact coronal and radicular tooth structure, especially maintaining cervical tissue to create a ferrule effect, is considered to be crucial for the optimal biomechanical behaviour of restored teeth. The presence of ferrule has a positive effect on fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth. Aims: To review the current options of treatment of aesthetically and structurally compromised root canal treated teeth. Objectives: Understand the clinical challenges connected to partial or complete lack of ferrule. Define clear guidelines of treatment strategies to endodontists and operative dentists.

    Abstract

    Cleaning those canals: How much do we know?


    "Root canal disinfection is the cornerstone to success of treatment": a line that all of us have read in every possible scientific paper we have read or have written. Yet, millions of dollars are invested, not in disinfection, but in instruments that prepare canals and materials that can fill canals. What is the current evidence base on root canal infections, methods to tackle those infections and how those methods influence the other aspects such as dentine and root filling interfaces with the dentine? What are the current challenges that compromise disinfection? What do we know about microbial communities? This lecture will comprehensively cover our work and those of others on the critical challenges that we face in achieving optimal root canal disinfection and our findings on preferred irrigation protocols for different root fillings.

    Abstract

    Clinical Applications of Lasers in Endodontics


    Laser technology for endodontic purposes is no longer unknown. Since the beginning of this century laser-activated irrigation (LAI) with erbium lasers (Er:YAG and Er,Cr:YSGG) came into the picture and this application proved to be very effective. Thanks to high energy content and specific characteristics of laser light other wavelengths such as Nd:YAG and the group of diode lasers can also be used for root canal cleaning and disinfection. Different wavelengths imply different laser-target interactions. The aim of this presentation is to unravel these differences (e.g. direct exposure of the root canal wall to the laser beam or not, can all wavelengths be used for laser-activated irrigation, ...) and to guide practitioners through the different clinical application protocols. In addition it is explained how laser use, though depending on the wavelength, can make the difference with the current non-laser based cleaning and disinfection protocols and finally. may satisfy the needs of modern endodontics.

    Abstract

    Common Errors in Endodontic Surgery


    Surgical endodontics refers to the branch of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of lesions of endodontic origin that do not respond to conventional endodontic therapy or that cannot be treated by conventional endodontic therapy. At the beginning of the '90s a new era of endodontic microsurgery began. Several major developments were introduced in microsurgical endodontics: the surgical operating microscope, microinstruments, ultrasonic root-end preparation and the use of biocompatible root-end filling materials. The concurrent development of better techniques has resulted in greater understanding of apical anatomy, greater treatment success and a more favorable patient response. If we agree that the success of endodontic therapy depends on the complete removal of all necrotic and infected tissue and on the complete sealing of the entire root canal system, then the reasons why the traditional surgical approach sometimes fails are obvious: the surgeon cannot predictably locate, clean and fill all the complex apical ramifications using traditional surgical techniques. These limitations can only be overcome with the use of a microscope with magnification and illumination, microsurgical instruments, ultrasonic retro-tips and new biocompatible materials. Unfortunately, it happens quite often to see failing surgical cases where several kind of errors have been made, and a large part of these errors have been made (in Italy and not only in Italy but almost everywhere) by Oral Surgeons and Maxillo-Facial Surgeons. The reason is that they never had any training in Endodontics and continue to perform their treatment in the old traditional way, without taking advantages of what we have today: microscope, ultrasonics, bioceramics, and last but for sure not least, the CBCT.

    Abstract

    Honing Microsurgical Technique


    This presentation will review advents in endodontics, especially microsurgery as the impact of technological advances in recent years are adopted in clinical practice. The battle to save a tooth is often lost before an endodontist is given a chance to give his/her consideration. Moreover, many referring dentists are unaware of the latest techniques in modern endodontics and their impact on the endodontic outcome and tooth retention. The first part of this presentation will look critically all the latest advents in endodontics and at the prognostic data available to evaluate predictability in endodontics and implantology. The speakers will then walk the audience through recent developments that are being investigated in the microsurgical procedure, from case selection to armamentarium and tweaking of clinical steps to make the procedure easier to execute and more effective. CBCT evaluation, Patient/microscope positioning, sinus and mental nerve management, Graft or not to graft will be discussed. If healthy bone is present Bone window technique is prescribed to preserve patient's bone which in routine microsurgery would be scarified to gain access to the site. Indications and step by step execution of this methodology will be discussed. In lieu of live surgical demonstration that was planned for the onsite event, video recordings of microsurgical cases with narrations will wrap up the presentation.

    Abstract

    Re-Consider Root Removal. Root Amputation: What is Possible?


    Traditionally root amputation procedures were used to salvage or prolong the life of the complex restoration which otherwise needs to be sacrificed. Often times the procedure is employed as an afterthought. Challenging clinical scenarios and past, dated experiences often times shape and limit the practitioner's understanding of what is attainable with root amputations. Actual patient centered outcome of these procedures continue to remain unanswered. This case based presentation will not only analyze the cases treated in the presenter's private practice setting but also review the clinical management.

    Abstract

    Re-Define Restorative Endodontics
    Modern Restorative practice in Endodontics.


    When a root-filled tooth fails to survive for the long term, these are categorized as restorative or Endodontic failures. Both these categories are within the domain of modern endodontic practice.

    If Endodontists care to take the credit for long term survival of endodontically treated teeth, then they need to take the responsibility to plan and perform the restorative treatment that follows the endodontic treatment. Post endodontic restorations can be complex and should consider the following factors: amount and quality of tooth structure, pre-endodontic procedures to enhance restorative prognosis, tooth position in the arch and anatomy and function. This clinical presentation will attempt to redefine the restorative practice in endodontics and discuss various options to restore root-filled teeth to enhance long term survival.

    Abstract

    Perforations: The Endodontic Dilemma


    Perforations can be defined as mechanical or pathologic communications between the root canal system and the external tooth surface. Prognosis of these defects is affected by multiple factors including position and size of the perforation, materials used for repair and time lapsed till the repair. This lecture will review available evidence-based literature. Several clinical cases will be presented and treatment protocols will be illustrated with long follow up. At conclusion, participants should be able to

    • List the different types of tooth perforations: causes, prevention and prognosis.
    • Discuss the different techniques and materials used to repair these defects.
    • Evaluate the contemporary evidence-based research about perforation.

    Abstract

    Hopeless tooth: Is it really hopeless?


    The aim of endodontic treatment is to prevent or cure apical periodontitis. Root canal treatment is a predictable procedure with high survival rate. However, procedural problems such as ledge formation, transportation of the canal, root perforation and extrusion of the irrigation solution can affect the prognosis negatively. On the other hand, patients demand the retention of their teeth more than ever before and this results in increasing necessity for retreatment. Today, success rate of retreatment is over 80%. Retreatment is easier with the help of Ni-Ti's, biomaterials and ultrasonic instruments. There is no doubt that both root canal treatment or retreatment of teeth are feasible and economical way to preserve function. In this lecture, follow-up of some tricky cases will be presented, discussed and the term "survival" will be reviewed.

    Abstract

    Non Surgical Root Canal Retreatment


    The revision of negative treatment outcomes is a significant part of current endodontic practice. The primary reason for a negative outcome with endodontic treatment is the persistence of bacteria within the intricacies of the root canal system. For intracanal infection, non-surgical retreatment is generally most beneficial because it seeks to eliminate the bacteria from within the root canal system. The premise that non-surgical retreatment improves the outcome of periapical surgery has been supported by both historical and current studies. Many factors must be considered in determining a course of treatment. One is the dentist's experience and clinical skills. Another requirement is having the necessary equipment and resources. The primary consideration is the patient's values and expectations. A positive outcome following non-surgical retreatment is influenced by many factors, and these have been comprehensively reviewed

    Abstract

    Considerations for Clinical Regenerative Endodontic Procedures


    Regenerative endodontic procedures (REPs) have emerged as a treatment option for immature necrotic teeth to allow the reestablishment of a newly formed vital tissue and enable continued root development. There is no standard protocol for REPs. Hence, the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), as well as the European Society of Endodontology (ESE), suggest Quality Clinical Guidelines for a regenerative procedure which was adapted in both of the case reports hereby described. The clinical protocol for REPs differs mostly in terms of sodium hypochlorite irrigant concentrations, intracanal medication, the method to induce bleeding and the use of biological matrices. The appropriate management of infected canals can create a favourable environment for tissue regeneration since open-apex immature teeth favour the reestablishment of a rich blood supply and stem cells recruiment. Considerable advances in disinfection techniques that combine the balance between antimicrobial effect and biocompatibility with mesenchymal stem cells have been developed. One of the major REPs goals is the resolution of clinical signs and symptoms. If clinicians use an effective disinfection protocol to eradicate infection, resolution of the apical periodontitis is expected. Therefore, REPs present a predictable treatment option. However, the outcomes of root maturogenesis after REPs are more unpredictable and depend on the survival of the apical papilla, HERS in immature permanent teeth, which is clinically difficult to assess following pulpal infection or dental trauma. REPs are often described as a conservative approach to maintain teeth with repair tissue. A repaired tissue, after disease resolution and reestablishment of some or all of the original tissue functions, should be a desirable goal. In these cases, clinicians, using regenerative endodontics knowledge, are able to guide endodontic repair, ultimately attaining the desirable patient- and clinician-centered outcomes. To date, a process of tooth repair can be an acceptable outcome in clinical regenerative endodontics. Therefore, an understanding of the concept, difficulties and different outcomes is important for the clinician.

    Abstract

    Is Endodontic Regeneration The Ultimate Treatment For Immature Necrotic Traumatized Teeth?


    Is Endodontic Regeneration The Ultimate Treatment For Immature Necrotic Traumatized Teeth? Arieh Y. Kaufman, DMD School for Dental Specialties Rambam Health Center, Haifa, Israel Dental trauma is a world common occurrence among young children. Any delay in providing an appropriate treatment may have serious negative consequences. Historically, apexification using calcium hydroxide (CaOH) was the main treatment for necrotic immature teeth. However, this treatment has many shortcomings. To overcome the drawbacks of CaOH apexification Torabinejad and Chivian suggested to use MTA plug to obturate the root canal end. This protocol became the gold standard. However, both apexification techniques, has serious drawback as they don't allow further maturation of the teeth. The teeth remain with thin walls and short roots. In 2004 Bunchs and Trope describe a protocol that was later adapted by The European Society of Endodontology (ESE) and The American Association of Endodontics (AAE). This protocol named "Regenerative Endodontics" has many advantages over both apexification techniques as it enables predictable fast periapical healing, it allows further development and maturation of the necrotic teeth, and have the potential to arrest invasive external root resorption. In some cases, positive vitality signs are regained. This lecture will describe the indications and the protocol how to perform Endodontic Regeneration. Pros and cons will be discussed as well as using antibiotics versus CAOH and the different kinds of scaffolds. At the end of the presentation, the audience will know the advantages of using Endodontic Regeneration as the preferred option to treat young immature necrotic teeth.

    Root resorption, why and how to treat


    Root resorption is very rare disease in the dental field. However, when dentist faced root resorption in the clinic without knowledge, it is very difficult situation to solve. Root resorption can be classified into external root resorption and internal root resorption according to developing place of resorption. Also, root resorption is classified into surface resorption, inflammatory resorption, replacement resorption according to developing reason of resorption. In this lecture, we can understand the cause and reason of root resorption development and can know how to prevent and treat the root resorption

    Abstract

    Root canal disinfection using magnetic drug delivery systems.


    Objective: When complex microflora invade the root canal space, there is usually colonization inside the dentinal tubules, isthmi, accessory canals and apical ramification that cannot then be easily reached by endodontic instruments, irrigants or intra-canal medicaments. Therefore introducing an antibacterial drug deep to the dentinal tubules may be one of the solutions. Different materials were introduced as chitosan, silver ions and iron ions. The problem was how to attract these ions which in nano state to the deep areas of the dentinal tubules. The use of magnetic field can potentially enhance the penetration of these magnetic nanoparticles. Material and methods. A research performed in college of dentistry university of Baghdad, used ferro fluid of chitosan coated iron oxide nanoparticles functionalized by glycine hydrochloride to penetrate the dentinal tubules in root canal system attracted by external magnetic field and produce an antimicrobial action against the microorganisms in this deep area. The Ferro fluid was prepared and introduced as an irrigant to the root canal for 3 minutes under external magnetic field of two opposite magnets, then the canals were dried with absorbent paper point. The degree of penetration in the dentinal tubules was assessed by scanning electron microscope. Results. It was shown that there was a high penetration depth of chitosan coated iron oxide nanoparticles inside the dentinal tubules in each third of the root canal. The penetration was 720.9, 527.9 and 315.4 μm in coronal, middle, and apical third respectively. Conclusion. This procedure ensures penetration of antibacterial drugs deep in the dentinal tubules in the remote areas of the root canal to decrease the possibility of future reinfection.

    Abstract

    Treatment of chronic apical abscess, in single or multiple session?


    Chronic apical abscess is a form of apical periodontitis, caused by a bacterial infection of the root canal and characterized by periapical radiolucency associated with an intraoral or extraoral sinus tract. Teeth with chronic apical abscesses and sinus tracts show a very complex infectious pattern in the apical root canal system, with predominance of biofilms, in many cases extending to the periapical lesion to form an extraradicular infection. Many studies have reported that the presence of a sinus tract does not significantly influence the prognosis of the endodontic treatment of teeth with apical periodontitis. However, other studies showed a worse prognosis for teeth with a sinus tract than teeth without a sinus tract. It will be presented a retrospective study on 154 teeth in 144 patients treated over a period of 20 years by a single operator, where the clinical and radiographic outcome of endodontic treatment of infected teeth with intraoral sinus tract and chronic apical abscesses was evaluated.
