Thursday Courses
Th214 - Understanding and Managing Root Resorption
Time: 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $95.00  Other Fee: $65.00

Root resorption is a very poorly understood topic in dentistry. Most dentists were
taught about internal versus external resorption in dental school, but now know there
are many different subtypes of resorption. Adding to the confusion are many names
for the same types of resorption and our classification system is incoherent. This
course seeks to rectify these problems and add clarity to this complex phenomenon.
Management of resorptions is nuanced and tailored to the type, extent, location and
individual patient desires. The course will explore these management options in a
way that is easy to understand and take back to your practice.

Friday Courses
Fr258 - CBCT in Endodontics: Uses and Misuses
Time: 12:30 - 3:30 PM
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $95.00  Other Fee: $65.00

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is revolutionizing the way dentists
practice dentistry. This technology allows the interdisciplinary team to make
accurate diagnoses, administer treatment with precision, and provide better
recommendations for our patients. However, CBCT has its limitations, and this
technology is prone to over-interpretation and over-diagnosis. Danger lies
ahead for the lay user and his or her patients. This course will discuss both
the appropriate uses and major pitfalls of CBCT technology.

Type: Interactive    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $95.00  Other Fee: $95.00

When a patient is in pain and in the chair, they seek your expertise to alleviate
their immediate problem. Diagnosis is often straight forward, but what about
when it isn’t? Frequently there are multiple layers of pain clouding our testing
and judgment. It is important to get it right, and there is no topic more fraught
with downside than an incorrect diagnosis. In this interactive discussion, the
course will dive into complex diagnostic situations and strategies to get it right
and serve our patient population. Solving a patient’s immediate pain builds trust
and is an integral part of comprehensive dentistry.
