Anatomically Driven Endodontics - Hands-On Workshop
Thursday, May 9
Time: 1:15 - 4:15 pm
Course Code: T 220
Quick Summary: New technology yields a more effective way to perform endodontic treatment with a higher level of success. This is a hands-on experience.
Fee: Dentists $120
NOTE: Course limited to 35 participants
Course Description: Evolutionary technologies have resulted in a new generation of instruments designed to access areas that traditional “round” NiTi cannot safely reach. After initial negotiation of the root canal space with a glide path file, these “virtual core” files complete the cleaning to the maximum natural diameter. The native anatomy configuration is sustained and intra-canal dentin conservation is optimized. This conservative root treatment is completed by bio-ceramic root filling technology that does not shrink, wash out or require excessive preparation on the coronal third of the canal space. Participants will learn the shortcomings associated with traditional NiTi instrumentation and legacy obturation techniques and how this new evolutionary generation of 3D files and bio-ceramic technologies will obviate these shortcomings and engender predictable endodontic success.
- Understand the shortcomings of traditional files that produce round shapes.
- Understand the addition of 3D files to clean to maximal diameters with conservative dentin removal.
- Understand the use of bio-ceramic sealer in both cold and warm hydraulic techniques.
