Course Overview:

There is no more exciting time to revisit endodontics than today. Nickel titanium rotary and reciprocating instrumentation has made treatment techniques predictable and reliable. The use of ultrasonic preparation and cleaning may lead to the ability to remove diseased tissue in isthmuses and multiple portals of exit. Obturation techniques from lateral to warm vertical result in a 3-D seal. Electronic apex locators make length determination more science than art. CBCT has enhanced diagnosis and treatment. Regeneration techniques allow a view into the future. The course content will also include topics such as: diagnostic assessment tools, recommendations for antibiotic use in endodontics, use of opioids for acute pain relief, glide path instrumentation, case management to include infections, flare-ups and post-op pain, supplemental anesthesia with intraosseous techniques, retreatment, atypical surgery and implants as treatment options when initial root canal therapy fails and endocrowns. Day 1 of this course reviews current endodontic concepts, re-introduces cleaning, shaping and obturation techniques while introducing new biomaterials, and instruments.

Course Objectives:

  • Reiterate the basic principles of the role of bacteria in pulpal and periapical disease

  • Diagnose and choose appropriate treatment modalities that are evidence-based

  • Identify similarities and differences in the currently available NiTi system from leading vendors

  • Delineate principles for use of CBCT in endodontic diagnosis and treatment

  • Recognize access preparations requirements & cleaning, shaping regimens in age of minimally invasive endodontics

  • Identify anesthetic techniques for profound anesthesia Is this right?

  • Describe pain management with OTC meds and rescue opioids

About the Clinician:

Karan joined the faculty at OHSU in June of 2016 as associate professor and Advanced Specialty Education Program Director in the Department of Endodontology. The current residency program she oversees is a 24-month program educating 6 residents.  The Graduate Endodontic Clinic which she oversees provides pediatric and adult endodontic care for OHSU School of Dentistry patients and clients referred from community general dentists. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics.  Dr. Replogle’s current areas of interest and research are teledentistry, cracked teeth, CBCT & opioid use and abuse.  When asked to describe herself professionally she comments, “I am a clinician who just happens to have joyfully landed in dental education”.
