AAE, DENVER, APRIL 25-28, 2018
The AAE annual meeting continues to be the most comprehensive endodontic education summit, vendor exhibition and networking opportunity in the world!
Please be advised, hands-on workshops tend to sell out extremely quickly. Be sure to register early and add your desired workshops at that time.
Immerse yourself in the latest research, trends and techniques that can impact your future, presented by some of the most sought-after speakers.
Discover innovative products and services that could lead to new ways of treating patients and improving productivity. Be the first to see exciting new releases, too.
Networking, recognition and social events are an important part of this meeting. You’ll find it easy to build beneficial partnerships and valuable friendships.
Controversies & Hot Topics Track
Since its inception, the specialty of endodontics has been enlivened and advanced by discussion and debate surrounding controversial topics. The current era is no different. In the spirit of this long-standing tradition, much of the first day of AAE18 will be focused on the Controversies & Hot Topics track. The first half of the day will elucidate today’s challenges and tomorrow’s solutions with respect to canal cleaning and disinfection. We will highlight our current trends and protocols as well discussing the future potential of multi-sonic canal irrigation and the benefits of using advanced nanoparticles. The second half of the day will include a Lincoln-Douglas style, case-based debate on surgical versus non-surgical retreatment. The day will end with a call to action for endodontists to rethink the way we define our treatment outcomes.
Surgical endodontics has evolved into microscopic and guided techniques that make the procedure a predictable, biologically-based adjunct to nonsurgical root canal therapy. In a time where technology is helping us in our day-to-day activities, this track will focus on updating clinicians on the possibilities of current technologies, techniques and research to demystify this procedure. The topics include evidence-based outcomes measured using newly developed volumetric criteria, investigation into possible etiologies for root-end surgical failures, application of microsurgical techniques in a workshop environment, introduction of guided apical surgery using precision stents, as well as clinical presentations involving the newest techniques for GTR, Cervical Resorption treatment and repair, Intentional Replantation and Autotransplantation. It promises to be a unique balance of clinical research and practical applications. Modern microsurgical protocols have shown excellent success rates in clinical studies and it’s time for all endodontists to accept and embrace it as a predictable treatment alternative in helping achieve our goal of preserving the natural dentition.
Endodontics Without Limits Track
“Please remove the separated instrument from the root canal!” your best referral requests. Whether you are a new associate or a seasoned practitioner, you consider accepting defeat before even trying! This educational track challenges you to overcome the resistance from your mind and routine. Addressed are some of the most challenging clinical situations ranging from managing nerve injuries to understanding the relationship between fluid dynamics and the biofilms that compromise good outcomes. Expand your scope of practice, save a few more teeth, and soon, you will be practicing Endodontics Without Limits!
