San Antonio, TX-Safety and Simplicity in Root Canal Instrumentation and Obturation with Dr. Alex Fleury (Hands-On)

January 27, 2023 12:57 pm Published by

Lecture Presentation: Nearly 30 years since the introduction of Nickel Titanium Rotary Files to endodontics, we’ve learned much about the clinical strengths and limitations of these great instruments. As a result of recent improvements in metallurgy, enhanced designs, and innovative rotary file motions, we now need to understand how these changes affect clinical instrumentation. Furthermore, in parallel to improvements in instrumentation technology, root canal obturation has been revolutionized in the area of cement/sealer technology. These obturation improvements are allowing more efficient obturation techniques at lower costs. Finally, combining improvements on both instrumentation and obturation front is now allowing us to create more efficient instrumentation and obturation techniques that are safe, simple, and predictable. During this presentation, Dr. Fleury will talk about these points with specific emphasis on access, irrigation, instrumentation, and obturation. During this lecture component, participants will learn:

 

  1. Learn how rotary file design, metallurgy and motion influences instrumentation safety and efficiency.
  2. Comprehend the advantages of bioceramic based obturation and clinical techniques for its implementation.
  3. Discover how instrumentation and obturation protocols can be combined as a comprehensive system to achieve both efficiency and predictability in most clinical situations.

Prerequisite: In order to participate in this hands-on session, it is necessary to complete the lecture program.

 

Hands on Workshop**: In this hands-on workshop, a simple instrumentation and obturation system will be demonstrated. After attending this workshop, you will have a full understanding of this instrumentation and obturation system which will help improve the predictability of your cases while dramatically reducing instrument separation.

All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the workshop. Plastic blocks will be used for this demonstration. If available, participants are encouraged to bring sterile accessed and canal validated extracted teeth representative of the kind of cases they do clinically. PLEASE NOTE: wisdom teeth are excluded.

At the conclusion of this hands-on workshop, participants will:

 

  1. Be able to describe the proper protocol for safe and effective instrumentation of a given canal and cone fit for obturation in different scenarios.
  2. Describe the simple, bonded obturation technique of the fitted gutta percha in the prepared canal.
  3. Be able to utilize the advantage of Hydraulic Condensation to prepare a quick post space in the canal, if needed.

 

PLEASE BRING ANY ACCESSED, EXTRACTED TEETH YOU MAY WANT TO WORK ON.

**This Hands-0n Workshop can be repeated on Saturday Morning

Portland, OR-Contemporary Endodontics for Recent Graduates & Refresher Course for Dentists & Hands on Workshop

January 12, 2023 7:54 am Published by

Lecture Presentation: This presentation is geared principally toward the recent dental graduate who feels somewhat intimidated by endodontics. Most undergraduate dentals schools have such busy curriculums that minimal time is devoted to clinical endodontics. Consequently, this session will be dedicated to such issues as practical diagnosis, the importance of straight line access, when to refer, how to achieve profound anesthesia, minimization of iatrogenic errors, various instrumentation techniques and obturation options. This lecture will also help those experienced clinicians who still have questions about an individual technique or concept. This presentation will include a robust Q & A session.
Objectives:
1. Upon completion, the participant shall be able to: conceptualize endodontics in a more circumferential manner and have a better comprehension of what well done endodontics can accomplish for their patient.
2. Upon completion, the participant will have a more thorough understanding of diagnosis, instrumentation, and obturation.
3. Upon completion, the participant will be able to diagnose and anesthetize “hot teeth.”
Hands on Workshop: This hands-on session is a natural follow-up to the previous lecture of the same name. The hands-on will begin with a review of How to Prevent the Separation of Rotary Files. A brief review of the “Blend Technique” will follow and then Dr. Koch will do a hands-on demonstration. She will demonstrate how to properly use heat treated and non-heat treated files rotary files (the Blend Technique) as well as demonstrating the best way to use bioceramic technology. Furthermore, this session will allow participants to review any technique or questions they may have with Dr. Koch. Following her demonstration, participants are encouraged to practice the various techniques and Dr. Koch will personally work with each individual at the hands-on.
Objectives:
1. Upon completion, the participant shall be able to: predictably perform rotary instrumentation utilizing a “Rhythm” motion.
2. Upon completion, the participant will have a more thorough understanding of what causes the separation of rotary files and how best to prevent them.
3. Upon completion, the participant will be able to successfully obturate a tooth or block using the hydraulic condensation technique.

SAFETY AND SIMPLICITY IN ROOT CANAL INSTRUMENTATIONAND OBTURATION:
MYTHS, METAL AND MOTION | FULL DAY LECTURE AND HANDS-ON WORKSHOP

Nearly 30 years after the introduction of Nickel Titanium Rotary Files to endodontics, we’ve learned much about the clinical strengths and limitations of
these great instruments. As a result of recent improvements in metallurgy, enhanced designs, and innovative rotary file motions, we now need to understand
how these changes affect clinical instrumentation. Furthermore, we must take advantage of these improvements to create an instrumentation protocol that
combines Safety with Simplicity.
We now have both heat-treated and non-heat treated rotary files. They each possess different properties and both have indications for use as well as
limitations. At Real World Endo, we believe these improvements should be employed to their utmost advantage. Consequently, we have developed a blended
technique that combines the advantages of both heat-treated and non-heat treated files into one Awesome Endodontic Technique!!!
In this hands-on workshop, our “Blend Technique” will be introduced and participants will learn how to use it effectively in all root canal types. After attending
this workshop, you will improve your instrumentation predictability while dramatically reducing instrument separation. Furthermore, a simple yet effective
obturation method will be introduced that combines the latest in material science with endodontic synchronicity for passive, bonded root canal obturation.
All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the workshop. Get ready to improve your instrumentation predictability and gutta
percha cone-fit while dramatically reducing instrument separation. Real World Endo remains dedicated to the preservation of the natural dentition.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will:
1. Learn how rotary file design influences instrumentation safety and efficiency.
2. Comprehend the advantages of heat-treated files and how best to use them.
3. Discover the most effective instrument motions available for shaping root canals and their advantages and limitations.
4. Fully understand the need to combine the latest technology with long established, evidence-based endodontic principles
5. Fully appreciate the benefits of bioceramic obturation and the incorporation of matching posts.
7. Recognize that ‘Great Endodontics’ can be accomplished in both a safe and simple manner. The key is to combine new technology with long established,
evidence-based endodontic principles.

TBA-Endo 102 – The Institute Course

January 10, 2023 2:29 pm Published by

Course Overview:

 

Real World Endo – “The Institute Course” is an intense single day course that covers a broad spectrum of topics.  This course will demystify endodontics, covering everything from logical diagnosis to hydraulic condensation.  The approach of Real World Endo™ is entirely practical and this is an all-inclusive course for the general practitioner. Dr. Koch as the founder and creator of Real World Endo approaches endodontic education from a totally different perspective; that of the real-world clinician.

 

Participants will neither be intimidated – nor get seduced – by technology.  The focus will be on combining the latest technology with long standing evidence based endodontic principles.  The goal is to have all participants move safely from endodontics to the final restoration of the tooth. Dr. Koch created the concept of an, “Endo-Restorative Continuum,” so this course (naturally) will place great emphasis on hands-on sessions.

 

Annie will share with you strategies and techniques developed over years of clinical practice. These are time tested techniques that will work well for you too!  Whether it is creating proper straight-line access, using the new “Blend” technique of rotary instrumentation that combines different metallurgy, or learning how to place non-destructive posts, participants will have the opportunity to actually practice these techniques each day in the lab.

 

Course Outline/Objectives:

 

During this lecture/hands-on experience participants will learn how to:

 

  • Understand and perform a logical differential diagnosis
  • Routinely anesthetize “Hot Teeth” effectively
  • Visualize and create the “Ideal Access” preparation
  • Fully understand the “Crown-Down” philosophy
  • Appreciate and perform the new “Blend Technique” of rotary instrumentation
  • Perform “Great Endodontics” without destroying the tooth
  • Fill root canals using a bioceramic technique and hydraulic condensation
  • Perform predictable pulp caps and pulpotomies using bioceramic putty.
  • Effectively use ultrasonic technology in your endodontics
  • Perform “Painless Endodontics” in your practice

 

 

Special Notes:
The course places great emphasis on the hands-on sessions so bringing extracted teeth is a must.  We strongly recommend 6-8 extracted, accessed teeth.  Ideally two molars, two pre-molars and a few others.…
