Endodontic success is dependent on a variety of interrelated factors.  This seminar will provide a comprehensive review of endodontic diagnosis and the limitations of pulp testing.  A short refresher on endodontic anatomy will help the clinician choose the most predictable cases.After the establishment of a glide path, the clinician is faced with many options to create the final shape and cleanliness within the root canal system.  An evidence based review of cutting edge instrumentation options with special emphasis on instrument design and mechanical movements will be covered.  Additionally, enhanced irrigation protocols will be explored prior to presenting state of the art obturationand restorative techniques.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The participant will learn:

 

how to increase the accuracy of endodontic diagnosis by understanding the limitations of pulp testing.

 

the design features and working characteristics of the most commonly used root canal instrumentation systems to increase clinical efficiency and predictability.

 

the importance of matching the instrument design and metallurgy to the predetermined speed and torque settings of the endodontic motor to virtually eliminate the risk of file separation.

 

the advantages and disadvantages of the most commonly used niti instrumentation systems.

 

the most advanced irrigation protocols and techniques for the elimination of bacteria from the root canal system.

 

how to create the most biologically sound, dense and repeatable three dimension filling of any root canal anatomy.
