Due to COVID-19 and the remaining uncertainly with restrictions the 2020 Regional Meeting will be an online event featuring the same speakers and presentations as should have taken place at the cancelled Spring Scientific Meeting. The BES would wish to extend its thanks to the speakers for agreeing to participate in this programme. The sessions will take place on the afternoon of Friday 20th November and the morning of Saturday 21st November and specific timings can be seen in the programme section. Presentations will be live by the speakers and there will be an opportunity to submit questions for discussion at the end of each presentation. "I am delighted to invite four of the most accomplished and experienced International researchers and clinicians in Endodontics for our Online conference on 20 and 21 November 2020. “The

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.
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.
Dr. Fayad received his DDS in 1985 from the Collage of Dentistry, Cairo University. Dr. Fayad received his Master’s in Oral Sciences in 1994 from the University of Buffalo at NewYork. He received his PhD in 1996 as a joint supervision between University of Buffalo at New York and Cairo University. He received his Endodontic training at the college of Dentistry at UIC. Currently he is the director of endodontic research, and a clinical associate professor in the Endodontic department at College of Dentistry at UIC, dividing his time between teaching, research, intra-and extra-mural continuing education and private practice. He currently serves on the Scientific Advisory and Manuscript Review Panels of the Journal of Endodontics, and Evidence Based Endodontics Journal. He served on the AAE Research and Scientific Affairs Committee and co-chaired AAE/AAOMR committee drafting the joint position statement on CBCT (2015). He has numerous publications and chapters in peer reviewed journals and textbooks (Pathways of the pulp) and (Contemporary surgical Endodontics). He is the co-editor of the CBCT text book (3-D Imaging in Endodontics: A new Era in diagnosis and treatment) by Springer (2016). He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and gave numerous presentations nationally and internationally.
