In this clinical-oriented program, 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. Dr. Fleury will include a demonstration that showcases details to help all attendees gain their own “how-to” understanding about the blended technique. 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.
