|Main Challenges for Young Dentists Performing Endodontic Therapy: This presentation is geared principally toward the recent dental graduate who feels somewhat intimidated by endodontics. Most undergraduate dental schools have such busy curriculums that minimal time is devoted to clinical endodontics. Consequently, this session will be dedicated to such issues as practical diagnosis, when to refer, how to achieve profound anesthesia, minimization of iatrogenic errors, various instrumentation techniques and obturation options.
1) Recognize the challenges of performing endodontic therapy.
2) Understand how to get patients profoundly numb.
3) Have a better sense of endodontic instrumentation and metallurgy.
Prerequisite: In order to participate in this hands-on session, it is necessary to complete the AM lecture program.
|Precision Based Endodontics: This lecture session will address endodontics from a restorative point of view and will take the participant on a journey that begins with endo-restorative concepts, then leads into access and three-dimensional ultrasonic cleaning. This will be followed by an introduction to the “blend technique” which combines both heat treated and non heat-treated rotary files in an intuitive fashion. This session will conclude with an in-depth review of advanced bioceramic techniques in endodontics.
1) Understand the difference between heat-treated and non heat-treated files.
2) Fully comprehend that the “blend technique” is intuitive in nature.
3) Recognize the myriad benefits of bioceramic technology.
Real World Endodontic Training Workshop: This hands-on session is a natural follow-up to Dr. Koch’s lectures. The presentation will begin with a brief review of the “blend technique” and then Dr. Koch will do a hands-on demonstration. She will demonstrate how to properly use heat-treated and non heat-treated rotary files as well as demonstrate the best way to obturate with bioceramic technology. Participants will have the opportunity to use enhanced magnification and Dr. Koch will personally work with each individual.
- Understand what causes the separation of rotary files.
- Have an opportunity to use the Blend Technique.
Be introduced to the ease and importance of bioceramic technology.
