The UNC Adams School of Dentistry in conjunction with the Association for Continuing Dental Education (ACDE), along with 30 of its member schools jointly presents the “ACDE LIVE Webinar Series.”
This series features university-based key opinion leaders presenting numerous topics on multiple dates and times. Presentations are available to meet every dental health care professional’s schedule and interests.
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a new technology that provides important diagnostic information for endodontic treatment. This course will describe the use of small field of view (FOV) CBCT in endodontic diagnosis and management of cases. Radiographic features of 2D, 3D, and 4D imaging will be discussed. A variety of cases will be profiled to illustrate the impact of CBCT on diagnosis of resorption, fractures, periapical lesions, and tooth anatomy. Evidenced-based literature findings will also be used to support treatment decisions with the use of CBCT.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- Review the technology of CBCT imaging
- Understand the applications and idication of small FOV CBCT imaging in endodontics
- Review the use of CBCT software for identification of periapical lesions, resorption, tooth fracture, and complicated dental anatomy
- Review how the use of CBCT technology impacts endodontic prognosis
- Review endodontic cases using CBCT
