Clinical Tips And Tricks For An Enjoyable And Efficient Endodontic Treatment

Friday October 21, 2022 – 8:30am – 12:00pm

Outline:

Endodontics can often be difficult and frustrating. Incorporating modern technology into your daily practice will provide you with the tools and confidence required to perform an efficient and effective endodontic treatment. 

This evidence-based course will focus on essential technologies that are critical for the successful treatment of the day-to-day endodontic scenarios. Topics to be covered include:

  • The dental operating microscope (DOM), which combines both magnification and illumination leading to enhanced visibility and an increased probability of locating extra canals without removing excessive tooth structure.
  • Ultrasonic units and ultrasonic tips, which enable the clinician to remove tooth structure in a more conservative manner and access difficult-to-reach areas.
  • Electric motors driving rotary and/or reciprocating files, which are indispensable for faster and safer negotiation of the canals.
  • The role of irrigants and irrigation has changed within the past few years as it has evolved from an adjunct solution to an important tool for disinfection.
  • Different devices and techniques will be discussed for filling the root canal system blocking” the portal of entrance to bacteria which is paramount to maintain the asepsis achieved during disinfection.
  • The benefit of incorporating three-dimensional imaging into your practice for enhanced visualization of difficult anatomy and dealing with challenging diagnoses will also be discussed.
