Available Sessions

  • Strategies for Effective Apical Barrier Treatment Outcomes
    Learning Objectives:

    • Comprehend the impact of trauma as the major etiological element for these conditions.
    • Recognize the treatment alternatives and proper approaches on immature permanent teeth with apical periodontitis.
    • Explain the benefits of CBCT, new technologies, and materials and identify the paramount evidence-based treatment outcomes.

    In the last few years, we have noticed the incorporation of new philosophies challenging classic approaches on the endodontic treatment of immature permanent teeth with apical periodontitis. These clinical situations where the pulp becomes necrotic, oftentimes have traumatic injuries as etiological factors. They create some challenges in which the correct tactic will delineate the tooth survivability. Current biological and technological advancements have provided two main treatment alternatives, the endodontic regeneration procedures and the use of apical barriers. Moreover, the use of real-time 3D analysis has introduced ground-breaking standpoints in the diagnosis and on the decision-making process, which may also affect the long-term prognosis. This presentation intends to discourse contemporary evidence-based therapies regarding apical barriers procedures utilizing Cone-beam CT, new disinfection protocols and Bioceramic materials. The rationale to incorporate limited volume CBCT, magnification, new instruments, and Bioceramic materials will be discussed as well as the biological standpoints of these complex clinical conditions.
