CBCT in Endodontics: Changing the Landscape of Diagnosis and Clinical Treatment

Description:
Radiographic imaging is essential in the diagnosis, treatment planning and follow-up in endodontics. The interpretation of an image can be confounded by a number of factors, including the regional anatomy as well as superimposition of both the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. As a result of superimposition, periapical radiographs reveal only limited aspects, a 2-dimensional view, of the true three dimensional anatomy. Additionally, there is often geometric distortion of the anatomical structures being imaged with conventional radiographic methods. These problems can be overcome by utilizing small or limited volume cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging techniques which produce accurate 3-dimensional images of the teeth and surrounding dento-alveolar structures. This presentation will highlight the indications, advantages and considerations of the use of CBCT in endodontics.

Considering how much additional information you get with CBCT with relatively low ionizing radiation, do you use CBCT before starting every case?

Cbct a game changer in endo. Our endondontists here in Caracas: Carlos Boveda, Andres Alam and Juan Saavedra keep amazing me everyday with their cases. Cbct allows them to find buccal or lingual accesory canals that could not been easily found before this new technology. Endo has changed for good !!!

A really broadly informative and extremely useful overview of the diagnostic and decision altering capabilities of CBCT utilization in endodontic but also applicable in all areas of dentistry. I learned some new perspectives on analyzing my images. Thank you Fred... Henry

Facial Rejuvenation: Using Botox & Fillers as Support of the Oral Rehabilitation & Lips Enhancement
In general the population have been associating the use of Botox & Fillers just as an aesthetic treatment on the derm to avoid wrinkles of aging. It is very important to understand that the Onabotulinum toxin A will take effect in the muscular plane, not in the epiderm and neither in the derm, its actuation is to block the release of a neurotransmitter necessary for muscles contraction. The result will be the inhibition of undesirable movements and reduction of strength and potency on the muscles, what can help on the treatment of parafunctional disorders and also improve the conditions for immediate loading in implant dentistry. The Dental losses, alveolar ridge atrophies and loss of vertical dimension contribute significantly to the aging process of the face and the perioral region, so it is essential for dentists to have the knowledge of the use of fillers in association with oral rehabilitation, improving the aesthetics and self-esteem of their patients.

3-D Smile Designing with a Functional Touch: The Dental GPS Way
In this esthetic driven era, the responsibility of delivering something that is functionally and esthetically acceptable is of utmost importance. Today , we have something called Dental GPS which is a software that is available both in a clinician version and lab version. It is not only able to help us with the simulation of the proposed results in less than 5 minutes but also able to help us print the diagnostic M lines to help us mount the casts (using a digital facebow) for 2D wax ups and / or 3D virtual wax ups for 3D printed models. This presentation will highlight the usage, simplicity and precision of planning and execution using the 3D smile design software.

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota
Amoxicillin is commonly used in oral surgery for antimicrobial prophylaxis against surgical-site infection and bacteremia because of its effect on oral streptococci. The aim of this study was to determine whether amoxicillin reaches the break-point concentrations in saliva and has any effect on the salivary microbiota, colonizing bacteria on mucosal membranes and on the gingival crevice after a single dose of amoxicillin. A single dose given as prophylaxis to prevent a surgical-site infection results in a significant reducing effect on the oral streptococcal microflora in the gingival crevice and may have an impact on bacteria spreading into tissues and the bacteria of streptococci.
