This course reviews the foundations of root canal therapy for achieving successful clinical results by focusing specifically on the topics of diagnosis is case selection and treatment planning, anesthesia and pain management, access preparation, working length determination, irrigation, instrumentation and obturation of the teeth with basic root canal anatomy (anterior and premolar teeth). Case based discussions and preoperative and post-operative management concepts for achieving optimal results will be discussed. Advanced topics including identifying patients with non-odontogenic pain, and approaches for management of endodontic emergencies, including best practices for successful anesthesia of painful mandibular molars with vital pulps. Management and triage of emergency patients are emphasized. This overview course on basic endodontics shares clinical pearls and endodontic techniques designed to improve successful patient management in a restorative dental practice. The goal is to build a solid foundation of time proven clinical principles of endodontic therapy and patient management for successful clinical outcomes. The hands-on component of the program allows for the demonstration and guided practice of clinical technique of access, instrumentation, and obturation on plastic blocks and tooth replicas. Course Objectives:
Improve understanding of concepts related to pulpal and apical diagnosis and treatment of endodontic disease
Achieve a higher success rate with anesthesia in symptomatic and asymptomatic teeth, including molar anesthesia
Understand principles of access preparation in anterior and premolars with emphasis on techniques, reducing procedural errors, and identifying challenging cases before initiating treatment
Review techniques for management and repair of procedural errors during access preparation
Review the critical role of irrigation in successful endodontic therapy
Learn and practice a simple and effective instrumentation and obturation technique
Understand pre and post-operative pain management strategies for endodontic patients
