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 endodontics. Lectures with relevant hands-on laboratory exercises insure that participants take their endodontic skills to the next level. Theoretical information will be effectively communicated by well-recognized endodontic specialists.

Molar root endodontics is considered more difficult than anterior or premolar root canal treatment. It is imperative for the clinician to assess case difficulty and make educated treatment decisions. Both basic concepts and solutions for complex cases will be presented. Possible complications during endodontic therapy, pain management and handling of emergency situations will also be discussed. These concepts, 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 practice.

The lectures are accompanied by step-by-step printed handouts, a manual and live demonstrations in the lab. All techniques will be demonstrated on plastic blocks and real teeth, emphasizing clinical situations that can be encountered in multirooted teeth. Exercises will be specific for molars and will concentrate on finding 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 techniques using electronic apex locators and complementary 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 using laterally compacted gutta-percha
  • Root canal filling using warm filling techniques
