Emphasis will be placed on clinical factors that help improve the long-term successful outcomes when utilizing modern and efficient techniques. This lecture will include a discussion on the use of effective irrigation protocols to improve clinical outcomes and incorporating ultrasonic technology during the irrigation phase of treatment. A blended instrumentation technique that combines heat-treated and non-heat treated files to achieve a robust instrumentation protocol and incorporating a bioceramic based obturation technique for simple and effective root canal obturation will also be discussed. Dr. Fleury will showcase details to help all attendees gain their own ‘how-to’ understanding about the blended technique. This ‘must-see’ event will also include a simple drill-less post technique discussion along with techniques for achieving profound local anesthesia and controlling post-operative pain.
