Restoratively Driven Endodontics: How to Preserve Tooth Structure for Optimal Outcomes
In recent years, there has been a significant shift in endodontics. Today, preserving as much tooth structure as possible is the most critical component to long-term success. Recent technological advancements have helped usher in this change, including CBCT, the microscope, and new designs of heat-treated NiTi instruments. The clinician discusses evidence-based approaches to restoratively driven endodontics and preserving tooth structure in root canal treatments.
• heat-treated NiTi instruments to achieve smaller access, shapes, and sizes in both simple and complex root canal cases
• to use high magnification with radiographs and CBCT for precise anatomical planning and execution
• how endodontics works in conjunction with restorative dentistry to enhance aesthetic and more conservative restorative outcomes for the patient
In recent years, there has been a significant shift in endodontics. Today, preserving as much tooth structure as possible is the most critical component to long-term success. This hands-on workshop reviews and practices current concepts of restoratively-driven endodontics. Attendees learn to manage endodontic treatment from access to restoration. Changes toward a modern and restoratively-driven approach to endodontic treatment are discussed. This hands-on workshop introduces the concept of contemporary instrumentation and obturation using heat-treated endodontic instruments and bioceramic obturation.
• the approach for restoratively driven access design
• contemporary, controlled-memory files for conservative instrumentation
• bioceramic and modern technology into root canal obturation techniques
• current conservative restorative considerations for endodontically treated teeth
Contemporary Endodontics: Conservative and Predictable Management of Curved Canals with Controlled-Memory Files
Managing the delicate curvatures of root canal systems is often one of the most challenging aspects of predictable endodontic treatment. Too often, attempts at their navigation result in overly large accesses excessively straightened canals, and unnecessary loss of tooth structure. Like other aspects of modern dentistry, contemporary endodontics intends to treat disease while increasing the conservation of tooth structure. This hands-on course reviews the advancements in modern endodontics, including changes in access design and canal shaping. It improves understanding of instrumentation with heat-treated and controlled-memory files for predictable management of curved canals.
• access design for conservation of tooth structure
• curved root canal treatment through glide path development and orifice management
• contemporary controlled-memory files for conservative instrumentation
• how to approach curved canals in sections for predictable instrumentation
