This presentation will describe numerous facets of clinical endodontics, utilizing a case based learning approach.  A premolar and molar clinical case will be discussed in detail that will demonstrate both the basic and advanced instrumentation and obturation technique, as well some technique variations to handle more challenging cases. The principal scientific concepts for successful endodontics will be presented as well as new technology and techniques that emphasize responsible shaping and HA (hydroxyapatite) bonding inside the root canal.  A new instrumentation and obturation system will be introduced that incorporates the above concepts. All participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session.

  • Recognize the applications for fiber-optic ultrasonics in endodontics
  • Understand how to properly use a new NiTi rotary file and instrumentation system
  • Understand  hydraulic condensation and its application during obturation
  • Gain insight into the use of new bioceramic materials for perforation repair and pulp capping.
  • Become familiar with a novel and very efficient drilless post preparation technique
