Advances in science, technologies, instruments and biomaterials transformed traditional surgical endodontics into a microsurgical endodontics with predictable outcomes. This lecture will provide an overview of microsurgical endodontics, its indications and applications (in diagnosis, surgical root canal retreatment, perforation repair, cervical resorption treatment and management of open apex). Moreover, recent advances in technologies and techniques will be discussed, such as the use of CBCT and guided tissue regeneration concepts. Furthermore, a modern step by step microsurgical endodontic protocol will be explained and several cases with different scenarios will be presented and discussed. Furthermore, outcome studies of microsurgical endodontics will be presented, discussed and compared to other treatment modalities. Finally the author will share the finding of his current research on the use of guided endodontic techniques in performing apicoectomy procedures.

Meet the speaker:
Dr. Jamal is Program director and Assistant Professor in Endodontic at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Univesity of Medicine and Health Sciences, the chair of the scientific committee of the Emirates Endodontic Society and a member of the scientific advisory board of the Journal of Endodontics.
Dr. Mohamed Jamal received his DDS from Ajman University in 2005. After one year of internship at Dubai Health Authority, Dr. Jamal joined the Boston University Institute for Dental Research and Education – Dubai (BUIDRE), where he obtained his CAGS and MSD in Endodontics in 2011. During his residency at BUIDRE, Dr. Jamal was awarded a grant from the Emirates Foundation to support his research on dental pulp stem cells. While finishing his program at BUIDRE, Dr. Jamal was practicing endodontics in several clinics in Dubai. In 2012, Dr. Jamal joined the Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Boston University, USA to complete his DScD in Endodontic. He developed protocols for directed differentiation of these cells into cells of different lineages such as endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, neural crest cells and dental pulp cells. Dr. Jamal received multiple awards, including the Young-Emarati research award, 2016 Best Research award at Boston University, research award from the AAE fall-meeting 2016, Young researcher award AEEDC 2019 and Greater New York Dental 2019 research award. His current research focus on stem cells guided endodontics. View full profile.
