    Cracking the crack teeth code utilizing CBCT imaging: A New Perspectives on Diagnosis, CBCT Imaging, Treatment Strategies, and Outcomes.

    A lack of consensus exists among dentists and endodontists in cracked teeth. Accurate clinical evaluation, imaging and diagnosis is paramount to properly treatment planning cracked teeth. With the resurgence of the philosophy of saving compromised teeth over extraction, and our patients’ desire to save their teeth, the question remains: “Which cracked teeth should be treated and which cracked teeth should be extracted?” Applying the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches, dentists can now use minimally invasive biomimetic techniques to provide restorations that come close to functionally and biomechanically mimicking the original, healthy state of a tooth.
    This evidence-based presentation will address the classification and diagnosis of different types of cracks and the role of CBCT imaging in these cases, as well as the prognosis and changes in treatment protocols and outcomes of cracked teeth.

    Learning Objectives:
    1. Understand the different types and prognosis of longitudinal tooth fractures.
    2. Understand the role of CBCT imaging in identifying cracked tooth types, extent of the fractures, and early bone pattern changes associated with cracked teeth.
    3. Understand prognosis and outcomes studies related to treatment and management of cracked teeth and vertical root fractures.
    4. Applying the current understanding of the ultrastructure of teeth in conjunction with modern diagnostic technologies, materials, adhesive techniques, and restorative approaches for restoration of cracked teeth.

    Root fractures: scientific research and controversies

    The clinical diagnosis and definitions of root fractures, cracks and dentinal defects are controversial. Further confusion is caused by the guidelines and definitions of the AAE and ESE. These difficulties will be presented focusing on modern methodologies and their reliability in diagnosing root fractures.
    The causes for root fractures will be discussed as well as research methodologies recent findings. Prevention and eventual treatment of root fractures as well as the prognosis will be presented , focusing on treatment options, alternatives and patient/disease centered outcomes.

    Biography- Hagay Shemesh

    Hagay was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel and graduated the dental faculty in Jerusalem, Israel in 1990. He graduated from the post-graduate endodontic program in Jerusalem in 2000 and then immigrated to the Netherlands and started teaching the undergraduate endodontic course at the Academic Centre for dentistry Amsterdam (ACTA). 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”. He is now chair of the division of endodontics in ACTA , program director of the only post graduate endodontology program in the Netherlands, and is a member of the scientific referee board of the Journal of Endodontics. He also works in a private practice limited to endodontics in Amsterdam.

    Access cavity design and scientific research

    Abstract
    Clinical studies demonstrate that long term prognosis of the root filled teeth is influenced by the quality of the restoration as well as by the quality of the root canal treatment itself. The most recent trends in restoration of endodontically treated teeth are following the concept of minimally invasive dentistry, proposing more conservative, less expensive and bio-economic restorations, based mostly on adhesive dentistry and the introduction of new materials and technologies. Following these trends, the access procedures in endodontics and the root canal preparation are changing in a conservative way, sometimes drastically if compared with the traditional concepts of cavity outline opening and coronal straight-line access to reach the apical region. Endodontic literature appears to be poor on demonstrating how these minimal invasive access procedures can influence the quality and prognosis of root canal treatment. The present lecture will analyze the technical procedures of minimal invasive access in different clinical situations and the possible mechanical improvements derived from it. Moreover, the limits of these procedures will be critically analysed to define how much minimal invasive clinicians should be in order to ensure “gold standard” endodontic treatments.

    AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

    At conclusion, participants should be able to:
    • Describe the basic concepts of access cavity preparation.
    • Perform new strategies to optimize access cavity preparation.
    • Evaluate critically the advantages and disadvantages of present
    technologies, instruments and techniques.

    Restoration of the root-filled tooth

    Restoration of the root-filled tooth is by many sources more important than the endodontic treatment itself. Tooth with previous damage to its structure, most likely still containing some bacteria, weakened by endodontic treatment mechanically and chemically is a challenging target. Not that long time ago, the only way to preserve such a tooth was cast-post followed by a crown. Along the process of making such a restoration, more tissue was lost – again. Subsequently several new options have been introduced during the past 30 years allowing for more conservative and aesthetic approach to the root-filled teeth. Author describes its 14 year path for adhesive, aesthetic post-endodontic treatment. Along the way, nearly 7000 root-filled teeth have been treated following our protocol.
    Philosophically, there are 4 important principles we follow in our daily journey:
    Tissue preservation
    Replace with similar
    Adhesion
    Fail-safe
    All of the above is exclusively handled by endodontists in our practice.
    Theoretical and clinical background, progress explanation, clinical protocol, retrospective statistics and many case reports will be presented.
