Dr. Domenico Ricucci
  • Tissue response to shallow, medium and deep caries. New information concerning "non cavitated, white spot" lesions.
  • Diagnostic tools in the diagnosis of reversible/irreversible pulpitis. Correlation between clinical and histologic pulp diagnoses.
  • Controversies about the depth of caries excavation. Selective vs non-selective caries excavation.

  • Direct pulp capping.
  • Partial and full pulpotomy as an alternative to root canal treatment.
  • Old and new biomaterials. Comparison between Calcium hydroxide, MTA compounds and Ca-silicate cements.
  • Regenerative endodontics. A critical appraisal in the light of histopathologic evidence.

Scientific program day 2 (seminar)

09:00 - 13:00
"Endodontic infections. Possibilities and limitations in achieving infection control. Impact on the treatment outcome - Part 1"
Dr. Domenico Ricucci
  • Patterns of microbial colonization of the root canal system.
  • Periapical lesion formation. Types of apical periodontitis lesions.
  • Apical limit of root canal instrumentation and obturation. The controversial issue of apical "patency". Determining working length. How to integrate radiography and electronic apex locators.
  • Lateral canals: the never-ending story.
  • Limitations in achieving a sterile root canal system with chemo-mechanical instrumentation. Do the "new technologies" work?

14:00 - 15:30
"Surgical and none surgical endodontics, how and when to choose. Latest update."
Dr. Talal Al-Nahlawi
The limits between two treatment modalities by listing complex cases treated none surgically as well as going through microsurgey
15:30 - 18:00
"Endodontic infections. Possibilities and limitations in achieving infection control. Impact on the treatment outcome - Part 2"
Dr. Domenico Ricucci
  • Treatment of the large lesions of the jaws. Is a surgical approach always necessary?
  • Treatment plan for teeth with severe loss of tooth structure. How important is diagnosis?
  • Biological and mechanical considerations in the clinical decision of maintaining a natural tooth. Modern trends in post-endodontic build-up.
  • Approach to complex cases that can be encountered in a clinical practice.

Moderator: Dr. Talal Al-Nahlawi

Dr Talal Al-Nahlawi graduated from dental school at Damascus University in 1999, where he also obtained his specialty in Endodontics, Master's and PhD degrees.
