From Root to Restoration

Do you want to treat teeth that last longer? This course is designed to give the skilled general practitioner the knowledge, materials and techniques to complete endodontic treatment to the highest possible standard. Most of the day will be practical session to identify canals, negotiating and instrumenting canals to full working length. 

Topics include

- Identifying the right tooth. Complex diagnostic scenarios: cracked teeth and myofascial pain.
- An introduction to the concept of “Minimally Invasive Endodontics” and an evidence-based evaluation of the risks and benefits of MIE. Techniques to employ in practice to extend the life of endodontically treated teeth.
- Utilising technology to identify MB2
- Learn to customise canal preparation specific to canal morphologies – one size and technique does not fit all – take your knowledge to the next level. Do you fracture instruments? Negotiate complex anatomy the way endodontists can: ledges, aggressive curvatures, S-bends whilst minimising the risks of fractures. Practical session with V Taper NiTi files.
- An extended hands-on component with a focus on hand file skills, utilisation of the new glide path rotary files and V Taper NiTi files. This practical component will make up most of the day to practice on as many extracted teeth that you can bring!
- Restoration of root-filled teeth. Are crowns always necessary? A look at recent literature about the use of posts
in root-filled teeth and to assist in selecting the appropriate type of post.
- Microscopes will be available for participants to use during the session.
 
Participants are asked to bring extracted teeth (the more teeth the better!) and loupes. Upper molars are ideal to assist in identifying and preparing MB2 canals. 

Learning Objectives

  • Understan the limitations and advantages of minimally invasive endodontics and implementing “orifice directed access” in your practice

  • Utilise the new NiTi technology in conjunction with traditional hand file techniques to achieve specific canal-appropriate instrumentation with reduced risk of iatrogenic errors

  • Restore root-filled teeth to maximise survival.
