Scientifically Based Strategies for Performing Endodontic Treatment Predictably Profitably and Painlessly – Dr. Gary Glassman

October 20, 2017

DC Institute presents a Fall Speaker Series featuring: Dr. Gary Glassman, DDS, FRCD(C)

Seminar Topic: Endodontic Solutions: Scientifically Based Strategies for Performing Endodontic Treatment Predictably Profitably and Painlessly

Course Description:
This Unlimited attendance AM lecture and Limited attendance PM hands-on participation course addresses breakthrough concepts and details the skills necessary for acquiring the expertise and confidence to perform the highest quality endodontics. As a participant in our program, you will become familiar with the use of the “apex last” approach to canal shaping with nickel-titanium instrumentation using the TF™ (Twisted File) Adaptive System. This innovative “shaping system” will present the Scientific Evidence illustrating the superior flexibility of the TF file based on its design and the way in which it is manufactured. Also presented will be how the revolutionary Elements motor in TF Adaptive mode will “direct” the file to either rotate or reciprocate based on file load in the canal. The continuous feedback loop from the file to the motor will allow the movement of the file to self adjust based on intracanal torsional stresses. The scientific evidence will show how this NiTi system provides a file that has an increased resistance to cyclic fatigue and will evacuate debris coronally and not apically through the apex thereby providing the patient with less post operative pain more than any other NiTi system on the . This allows the file to enjoy the advantages of Rotary and Reciprocation and minimize the disadvantages of both. Rotary when you want it, Reciprocation when you need it.

Also to be discussed will be predictable irrigation protocols using Apical Negative Pressure using the EndoVac™ irrigation system. Vertical condensation of thermo-softened gutta percha using The Continuous Wave of vertical condensation and the Elements™ Free cordless Obturation System will also be discussed.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Assess the criteria for a successful endodontic procedure
  • Accurately locate the apical constriction.
  • Shape the root canal space using NiTi technology in a safe and efficient manner- canal negotiation, apical finishing techniques. The TF™ (Twisted File) Adaptive NiTi system will be discussed in detail. A NEW multi-setting motor utilizing Adaptive Motion Technology, will be introduced.
  • Remove the Smear layer and Biofilm using state of the art Irrigation Protocols using passive ultrasonic irrigation and Apical Negative Pressure using the Endo Vac™ Irrigation System
  • Obturate the root canal system in 3-D to capture the natural anatomy with the continuous wave of condensation using the Elements™ Free Obturation System.

Doctors attending the PM Hands On Course MUST attend the AM lecture.

Attendees of the hands on workshop are encouraged to provide their own extracted pre-accessed fully developed teeth that are soaked in full strength bleach for 24 hours. The root canals must be negotiated to the apices with a #10 stainless steel hand file. DG 16 Endodontic Explorers and Loupes and headlamps should also be brought for maximum visualization.
