Course/Reservation Information

Please join us in Washington, DC for a 2-Day Course on the “Use of CBCT in Endodontics.” This evidence-based program demonstrates the advantages of CBCT imaging in light of recent research demonstrating a significant increase in lesion visualization when compared with periapical radiographs. This workshop applies to all limited field of view CBCT scanners.

Case Studies

Since Kells first reported the usefulness of visualizing a lead wire in a root canal in 1899, radiography has been recognized been a pivotal tool in endodontic treatment. The cases in this section will explore the use of planar and three-dimensional technologies to demonstrate the advantages associated with each technology.

Anthropology at Jamestown

Dr. Levin uses CBCT in the analysis of the dentition and skeletal remains of the early settlers that established the first permanent English colony at Jamestown in 1607.

Use of CBCT in Endodontics

This CBCT 3D semi-transparent isosurface reformation shows the maxilla of a 22 yo male patient who fell while biking. A segmented 3D image and crossectional reformations show the transverse radicular fractures in the maxillary right and left lateral and central incisors.

Endodontic therapy depends on diagnostic radiographs and image-guided treatment. Periapical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of limited field of view, high-resolution Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), allowing three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and and non-odontogenic lesions, root canal morphology, revision treatment, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery.

Please join endodontist Martin D. Levin, DMD, Diplomate, American Board of Endodontics and radiologist Barry Pass, DDS, PhD, Diplomate, American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology for an intensive two-day seminar highlighting a stepwise approach to image interpretation and documentation, common interpretation errors and endodontic applications of CBCT. Additional material on artifacts, panoramic imaging, the maxillary sinuses, workflow, the consent process, liability considerations and marketing will be presented.
