The 9th SES International Conference &
1st Virtual Live Webinar Conference
Welcome To Our Conference
The Saudi Endodontic Society is pleased to announce the 9th international endodontic conference & its 1st virtual live webinar conference during May 6-8 2020.
This year’s meeting aims to bring pioneer endodontic professionals and researchers together, to exchange and share their knowledge and experience in all aspects of Endodontics.
The forum will also provide a platform for students, residents, practitioners and educators to see treatment challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the field of Endodontics.
The conference will present the most recent innovations, trends and concerns as well as technological advances and biological issues relevant to endodontics. Attendees of the Saudi Endodontic Society meeting 2020 will have ample opportunities to discuss all these issues that are changing the landscape of dentistry and to fulfill their continuing education and professional development requirements.
We look forward to seeing all of you at this special joint event! Stay safe and stay updated.

Apical Microsurgery - the 3rd Dimension
Apical microsurgery is a well-established treatment modality to preserve teeth with persistent or recurrent endodontic infection. In the last three decades, important diagnostic (three-dimensional radiography) and therapeutic inventions (surgical microscope, microtips for root-end cavity preparation, biocompatible root-end filling materials) have contributed to higher success rates of apical microsurgery compared to the traditional surgical technique. Yet, many cases are planned, treated and followed with two-dimensional (2D) imaging, i.e. periapical radiography or panoramic tomography. However, given the complexity of the surgical approach such as access, root- and canal morphology, as well as contiguous anatomical structures, three-dimensional (3D) imaging, i.e. CT or CBCT, has become an important tool to overcome these challenges.
By the end of this webinar the participant will be able to:
-Define the pre-, intra- and postoperative application of CBCT in apical microsurgery.
-Compare between the use of periapical radiograph and CBCT in apical microsurgery.
Intrusion; the dilemma between the published guidelines and the clinical scenarios
As Intrusion is the most complicated displacement injury
of permanent teeth. Clinical guidelines published by
authorities such as American Association of Endodontists,
the Royal College of surgeons of England and the
International Associations of Dental Traumatology are
inconsistent. While a certain amount of inconsistency
might be expected, some of these guidelines recommend
treatments that are experimental or have not incorporated
research information. Authorities’ clinical guidelines
available on the internet provide the clinician with useful
outlines for treatment. A review of the literature, and case
reports will be presented to show how every case
response differently based on the time of the management
and on the intrusion prognostic factors.
UPDATE: VITAL PULP THERAPY
Vital pulp therapy (VPT) is designed to preserve and maintain pulpal health in the permanent teeth and current advances have made VPT a predictable procedure in teeth exposed to trauma, caries, restorative procedures or anatomical anomalies. Recent scientific advances in our understanding of pulp biology and the introduction of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) and other Bioceramic or Calcium Silicate Cements (CSCs) have provided reliable treatment strategies for teeth that exhibit healthy and partially inflamed pulps.
By the end of this lecture the participant will be able to:
-Identify new treatment modalities and materials necessary for predictable outcomes for VPT procedures in patients of all ages under a variety of circumstances.
-Observe the importance of inflammation assessment and hemorrhage control in VPT.
-Demonstrate Different techniques for MTA or CSC placement in VPT.
An Overview of Endodontic Motor-Driven Files: Which Files Should I Use?
The goal of endodontic treatment is to treat and prevent pulp and periapical periodontitis. In order to reach this goal, in most cases, a chemo-mechanical process which is called “canal debridement”, “instrumentation” or “cleaning and shaping” takes place in order to reduce bacterial load and promote healing. Close to two hundred years ago the first root canal instrument was developed and ever since, especially in the past twenty years, dentists have witnessed tremendous amount of advancements in technology, metallurgy, and instrumentation techniques. We now have access to numerous different types of endodontic files; each may have a different ability and characteristic, and some although similar to others, bear different manufacturing labels or brands. Selecting a proper file system from these seemingly similar choices is a huge challenge for any dentist.
By the end of this webinar the participant will be able to:
- Observe differences between various types of motor-driven file systems. - illustrate characteristics of each types of motor-driven file systems.
- List simple and practical guidelines for file selection for each endodontic case.
A rationale approach to modern access cavity delinquent
Clinical studies demonstrate that long term prognosis of the root filled teeth is influenced by the quality of the restoration as well as by the quality of the root canal treatment itself. The most recent trends in restoration of endodontically treated teeth are following the concept of minimally invasive dentistry, proposing more conservative, less expensive and bio-economic restorations, based mostly on adhesive dentistry and the introduction of new materials and technologies. Following these trends, the access procedures in endodontics and the root canal preparation are changing in a conservative way, sometimes drastically if compared with the traditional concepts of cavity outline opening and coronal straight-line access to reach the apical region. Endodontic literature appears to be poor in demonstrating how these minimal invasive access procedures can influence the quality and prognosis of root canal treatment.
By the end of this webinar the participant will be able to:
- Define the basic concepts of access cavity preparation.
- Demonstrate new strategies to optimize access cavity preparation.
- Inspect critically the advantages and disadvantages of present technologies, instruments, and techniques.
Cracks and fractures, an overview and an update
Cracks and Vertical root fractures are one of the most common reasons for tooth loss nowadays. These occasionally can be difficult to diagnose thus, makes it more challenging to reach to predictable treatment decisions. Therefore, the aim of this presentation is to help practitioners resolve some of this confusion,
therefore, assist them to reach a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
The term “Longitudinal tooth fracture” accounts for all types of tooth fractures that are not related to trauma.
These usually have a broad range of signs and symptoms associated with them. To reach to a proper diagnosis
and treatment plan, it is necessary to recognize the common biological (e.g. pulp infection and periodontal
involvement) and restorative implications. Consequently, these signs and symptoms can be the result of pulpal
and periodontal injury which further complicates the treatment.
Moreover, it is essential to recognize and employ the available diagnostic aids which can be classified as conservative and invasive procedures. The conservative procedures include; pulpal, periapical, bite test and
radiographic examination (including CBCT). The invasive procedures include; restoration removal and surgical
assessment. Finally, it is necessary to understand the outcome of different treatments to be able to present the proper treatment plan to the patient in a predictable manner.
