Recent studies suggest that endodontic success rates have not measurably improved with the new technology available to us. With such complex root anatomy, the variety of canal dimensions, and compromised teeth that clinicians face along with the dozens of variables in the instruments used to treat such anatomy, it is clear that a more “tailor-made” approach is needed for Endodontic therapy today, with an emphasis on preserving vital tooth structure wherever possible. Anecdotal experience, and the advent of microcomputed tomography, allowing more complete three-dimensional information on canal anatomy, underscores the need to take this approach.
MODULE 2 – OBTURATION OF THE CANAL & CORONAL SEAL
The following topics will be covered during this module:
*3-Dimensional vertical compaction of gutta percha – learn how to do it like the endodontists
*The importance of immediate coronal seal, HOW?
*Introducing Bioceramic materials to your practice
Hands-On Workshop will focus on the obturation of the teeth used in Module 1.
PLEASE NOTE: If participant did not attend Module 1 they should bring a pre-accessed and instrumented tooth. If you wear magnification loupes while practicing, we recommend you bring them for this course.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
General dentists wanting to learn about advanced endodontic techniques and technologies.
