In this all day lecture, Dr. Fleury will focus on current concepts of root canal access preparation, instrumentation, and obturation. 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. This all day ‘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.
At the conclusion of this course, attendees will:
- Learn a robust blended instrumentation system achieving safe cleaning and shaping of a variety of root canal shapes and sizes.
- Learn to obturate the shaped canals with a simple and efficient, bioceramic based obturation technique.
- Learn how to achieve profound local anesthesia for root canal treatment.
