Treatment planning with modern CBCT-Technology– Interactive Presentation
The purpose of this presentation is to provide the advantages and benefits of CBCT in the diagnosis of endodontic disease and to create consequently an optimal Treatment plan for the patient. The introduction of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for every day practice improved the diagnosis and therapy significantly in general Dentistry and especially in the endodontic treatment. The presence and location of periapical changes or root resorptions are identified more accurately and earlier through the CBCT. The additional information leads to a more accurate diagnosis and adequate therapy, thus results in a better treatment planning and prognosis estimation for the patient.
The main advantages of CBCT are pointed out, especially for resorptive lesions or pain cases with negative radiographic findings. In addition, the limitations of CBCT are discussed and illustrated with clinical cases.
In this interactive presentation standard and special cases will be presented and everyone of the audience can select the appropriate treatment plan via a voting system. Then the different results are presented and discussed together for each case.
