Have you ever felt lost in a root canal? If so, this two-day program is right for you. This program combines updates about the latest techniques, instruments and clinical strategies in endodontic therapy. Lectures with relevant hands-on laboratory exercises ensure that participants take their endodontic skills to the next level. Theoretical information will be effectively communicated by well-recognized endodontic specialists.
Molar endodontics is deemed considerably more difficult than anterior or single-rooted premolar root canal treatment. It is imperative for the clinician to assess case difficulty and make educated treatment decisions in various clinical scenarios. Both basic concepts and solutions for complex cases will be presented. Management of complications during endodontic therapy, pain control and handling of emergency situations will also be discussed. These strategies, presented in an evidence-based and easy to follow manner, will allow clinicians the opportunity to develop immediate strategies to solve these endodontic problems in their practices.
Presentations are accompanied by step-by-step, printed handouts and live, follow-along demonstrations in the simulation laboratory. Participants will have the opportunity to perform techniques on plastic models and real teeth, emphasizing clinical situations that can be encountered in multi-rooted teeth. Exercises will include specific elements for molars and will concentrate on locating all canal orifices.
You Will Learn
- To be familiar with diagnoses and related treatment plans
- Access preparations that retain structural integrity, expose all orifices and allow unimpeded entry into the root canals
- Easy canal length determination principles using electronic apex locators and radiographic techniques
- Cleaning and shaping procedures and strategies for single rooted and multirooted teeth using the most effective hand instrumentation and current concepts in rotary instrumentation
- Root canal filling techniques using laterally compacted gutta-percha
- Root canal filling using several warm filling techniques
Who Should Attend
This two-day, hands-on course is designed for general practitioners who are interested in learning more about simplifying endodontic therapy and would like to incorporate multirooted endodontic cases as routine elements of their practice.
