The most frequent cause of failure of root canal treatment is unlocated and therefore un-instrumented root canal anatomy. The challenge of root canal treatment is not so much preparation of a patent root canal, but location and negotiation of these difficult to find root canals.

Discover innovative techniques and strategies to access calcified cavities in this original hands-on course, presented by world-reknowned Endodontist, Dr Omar Ikram.

This hands-on course provides the opportunity to use microscopes and various tools to locate and negotiate calcified root canals. In addition, experience using a nickel–titanium (NiTi) preparation system after the canals have been negotiated. 

This course is suitable for general dentists, new Endodontists and post-graduate Endodontic students.
