The Evolving Landscape of the American Board of Endodontics' Certification Process: What it Means for the Future of the Specialty.

J Endod 2021 Jul 31. Epub 2021 Jul 31.

Texas A&M University College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas.

Introduction: The American Board of Endodontics certification is an evolving process to ensure the continuing existence of the specialty of endodontics. Recent examination changes have resulted in greater numbers of Diplomates. To fully understand the implications of such changes and evaluate current Diplomates' views of the examination process, a specific set of questions was developed focusing on beliefs and perceptions, age relationships, test components, and hypotheticals for potential changes. An analysis of the examination process has never been reported in the literature, and, as such, the survey was designed to provide the endodontic community with critical information on the past, current, and potentially future examination process.

Methods: A Web-based survey consisting of 25 questions was e-mailed to 1522 Diplomates.

Results: A total of 736 Diplomates responded to the survey for a response rate of 48.4%. Descriptive statistics and regression analysis (p < .05) were used to explore relationships in the data.

Conclusions: A lack of perceived importance of being board certified was a major barrier. Respondents opposed de-emphasizing literature, offering the oral examination in a videoconferencing virtual format, eliminating mandatory recalls, and entirely removing 1 component of the examination to increase the numbers of Diplomates. Respondents supported reviewing the case history portfolio examination on a rolling basis. Respondents disagreed that molar cases alone demonstrated clinical competency. Older Diplomates felt the strongest that the meaning of being a Diplomate has been diluted by the changes in the certification process. The authors believe the American Association of Endodontists, program directors, and the College of Diplomates must continually emphasize the importance and value of board certification as the process continues to evolve.

Periradicular Lesions in Cancellous Bone Can Be Detected Radiographically.

J Endod 2020 Apr 11;46(4):496-501. Epub 2020 Feb 11.

Department of Endodontics, Texas A&M College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas. Electronic address:

Introduction: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether naturally occurring periradicular lesions confined to cancellous bone can be detected on periapical digital radiography and whether the size of the lesion had any effect on lesion detection.

Methods: One hundred twenty-nine roots were chosen based on cone-beam computed tomographic imaging and categorized as having no lesion, a lesion confined to cancellous bone, a lesion that encroaches on junctional corticocancellous trabeculae, or a lesion with cortical involvement. The largest buccolingual dimension of the lesions was measured on cone-beam computed tomographic imaging. Two observers separately viewed the corresponding periapical radiographs in their original version as well as in the edge-enhanced setting on MiPACS (LEAD Technologies Inc, Charlotte, NC). Observers were asked to evaluate and interpret the periapical radiographs as having a lesion present, absent, or "unsure." Evaluations of images were conducted at 2 times 1 week apart. Data were analyzed, and the level of significance was set at P = .05.

Results: Lesion size, not the degree of cortical involvement, significantly affected the observers' ability to accurately detect lesions. As the size of the lesion increased, the probability of correctly identifying a lesion increased (P = .0008). Lesions were correctly identified 97.6%, 94.1%, 91.6%, and 89.3% of the time, respectively, when in cortical bone, at the junction of corticocancellous bone, in cancellous bone, and when no lesion was present. Observers were "unsure" whether a lesion was present or absent 10.7% of the time. Only lesions in cortical bone significantly increased observers' certainty in making a diagnosis.

Conclusions: This study concluded that lesions confined to cancellous bone can be detected radiographically at a high rate. Lesion size was positively correlated with correct lesion identification, whereas the degree of cortical involvement had no significant effect. This suggests that lesion size may be a better predictor for correct lesion identification than lesion location.

Retrospective Analysis of Root-end Microsurgery Outcomes in a Postgraduate Program in Endodontics Using Calcium Silicate-based Cements as Root-end Filling Materials.

J Endod 2020 Mar 6;46(3):345-351. Epub 2020 Jan 6.

Department of Endodontics, Texas A&M University College of Dentistry, Dallas, Texas. Electronic address:

Introduction: The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the clinical and radiographic outcomes of root-end microsurgery in a postgraduate program in endodontics using modern techniques and calcium silicate-based root-end filling materials (ProRoot MTA; Dentsply International, Johnson City, TN, and EndoSequence Root Repair Material [ERRM]; Brasseler USA, Savannah, GA) and to identify any potential prognostic factors that may have affected healing outcomes.

Methods: Clinical records and periapical radiographs were collected from patients who had undergone endodontic microsurgery between 2007 and 2018 in a postgraduate endodontic clinic with a minimum follow-up interval of 6 months. Either ProRoot MTA or ERRM was used as the root-end filling material. Outcomes were categorized into healed, healing, and nonhealing based on clinical and radiographic findings. Healed and healing cases were pooled and considered as successes, whereas nonhealing cases were considered as failures.

Results: A total of 129 patients with 142 teeth were included in the final analysis. Seventy-six cases were root-end filled with ProRoot MTA and 66 root-end filled with ERRM. The ProRoot MTA group had a success rate of 92.1%, and the ERRM group had a success rate of 92.4% with no significant difference between the groups (P > .05). Vertical root fracture was found to be the predominant cause of failure. No patient- or treatment-related factor was identified to have any significant impact on healing.

Conclusions: High overall success can be achieved in a postgraduate endodontic program when either ProRoot MTA or ERRM is used as the root-end filling material.
