Course Outline


  1. Autotransplantation Case From Einstein
    Dr. Julianna Bair - Case presentation will include pre-op xrays and description, 3D tooth planning, surgical extraction of tooth #17 placed in Hank’s balanced salt solution and extraction non-restorable #19 by OS, modification of socket and 3D tooth try-in, autotransplantation of tooth and splinting, follow-up and future.

  2. Apexogenesis of the Immature Permanent Tooth
    Dr. Neena Lakhanpal - Presentation will cover Apexogenesis of the Immature Permanent Tooth #30 with Diagnosis of Irreversible Pulpitis, case history, clinical examination, radiographic examination, clinical diagnosis, treatment options, treatment procedure, prognosis, relevant clinical questions.

  3. Nonsurgical approach to the management of external cervical resorption in a maxillary right canine
    Dr. Victoria Ra - Presentation covers external cervical resorption, ECR’s etiology, clinical presentation, radiographic assessment, ECR classification, description about the case with external cervical resorption in #6, treatment options for ECR, decision for treating with internal (nonsurgical) approach in this case.

  4. Guided Endodontics: Clinical Uses and Cases
    Dr. Kiya Stack - Presentation will review clinical applications of guided endodontics, including workflow specifics for treatment planning of guided therapy. The presentation will also include several case report examples using guided endodontic therapy for cases including: calcified canals, minimally invasive access preparations, and resorptive lesions.


The participant will learn:

  1. Presentation I - the technique of autotransplantation and the benefits of the procedure in the young, developing patient.

  2. Presentation II - to identify situations where apexogenesis procedure is a viable treatment option and understand the advantages and disadvantages.

  3. Presentation III - what external cervical resorption is and its treatment options.

  4. Presentation IV - the clinical indications and benefits of guided endodontic techniques and a proposed workflow in the treatment planning of guided endodontic therapy.
