  • The Impact of CBCT in the Management of Complex Endodontic Cases
    Learning Objectives:

    • List the uses of CBCT imaging in diagnosis, treatment planning and assessment of endodontic outcome
    • Describe clinical endodontic problems solved with the help of a CBCT scan
    • Perform complex endodontic cases

    Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an innovative medical imaging technique that provides endodontists with three-dimensional views of the patient. To obtain essential additional information in clinical endodontics, a pre-operative CBCT can be used to provide a superior accuracy, validity and reliability for diagnosis and to improve confidence in decision-making as well as have an impact on treatment planning. It is also clear that the additional information provided by CBCT intra-operatively during the treatment phase may drastically improve the outcome of the most complex cases.
    This lecture aims to analyze how the integration of new technologies, coupled with enhanced techniques, may help everyday clinical practice, to present an explicative case series representative of several complex clinical situations in Endodontics and to describe techniques and clinical tips to successfully treat such cases.
