Safety and Simplicity in Root Canal Instrumentation: Nearly 30 years since the introduction of Nickel Titanium Rotary Files to endodontics, we’ve learned much about these outstanding instruments’ clinical strengths and limitations. 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 cement/sealer technology. This seminar focuses on access, irrigation, instrumentation, and obturation.
• how rotary file design, metallurgy, and motion influences instrumentation safety and efficiency • the advantages of bioceramic-based obturation and clinical techniques for its implementation • how instrumentation and obturation protocols can be combined as a comprehensive system to achieve both efficiency and predictability in most clinical situations Bioceramics and Advanced Endodontic Instruments Immature Teeth: A Hands-on Workshop: You are breezing through your typical workday. Your next patient is that kid you have not seen since he was three years old. It’s a D.O. composite on #3. No worries, no problems, then BOOM. You see red. It’s the pulp. Why is it so close to the occlusal surface? What do you do now? Are you going to send him to endo or go to pedo? Do you try to place some Dycal? This hands-on workshop goes through the rationale for treating immature teeth in children and adults. Become familiar with ideal materials and gain confidence to manage most pulpal situations from pulp capping to vital pulp Apexogenesis to Apexification.
• to diagnose the amount of pulpal involvement and predict the ideal treatment plan • the advantages of Bioceramic materials for vital pulp therapy • to instrument and obturate immature teeth in a safe and effective manner • to obturate traditional, mature roots with Bioceramic sealer and gutta-percha
Root Canal Instrumentation/Obturation: Hands-on Workshop: This hands-on workshop discusses a simple instrumentation and obturation system during the didactic portion. After attending this workshop, you will have a complete understanding of this instrumentation and obturation system, which will help improve the predictability of your cases while dramatically reducing instrument separation.
• to describe the proper protocol for safe and effective instrumentation of a given canal and cone fit for obturation in different scenarios • the simple, bonded obturation technique of the fitted gutta-percha in the prepared canal • to utilize the advantage of Hydraulic Condensation to prepare a quick post space in the canal, if needed
