Three-Dimensional (3-D) Endodontic Instrumentation and Obturation
At last Endodontic Evolution meets Endodontic Revolution! After two decades of research and experimentation with NiTi rotary instruments, an expandable rotary instrument has been created. New adaptive 3D files have produced a revolution in simplicity, efficiency, and safety for you and your patients. These unique instruments expand at body temperature effectively debriding and disinfecting oval and irregular shaped canals without compromising the structural integrity of the treated tooth. This body temperature transformation allows faster and safer instrumentation using less files than conventional techniques. The improved file-dentin interface allows minimally invasive root canal preparations that can easily be obturated using bioceramics. True 3-D instrumentation and obturation has arrived. Furthermore, all participants will have the opportunity to validate these concepts during the hands-on session. Real World Endo remains dedicated to the preservation of the natural dentition. A new era has begun! During this lecture/hands-on participants will learn: • The basic foundations of Endodontic success. • The concept of anatomic shaping. • To triage Basic and Advanced cases and how to apply the correct instrumentation for each case. • Two different instrumentation techniques for managing different canal anatomies (conventional & 3D). • The benefits of sealer based obturation using bioceramics. • The various applications of ultrasonics. • How to use integrated apex locator-handpiece technology. • To place posts using a matching post and core system.
Incorporating Lasers to Simplify your Endodontic Practice
Lasers are unique in that they use light energy to treat targeted tissue while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Lasers in endodontics can clean an infected nerve canal, shape and enlarge the canal while sealing off blood vessels and nerve endings during the procedure with a result of reducing pain and swelling. Most times a root canal using a laser can be performed without using anesthesia thereby leaving the patient in less discomfort. Lasers will also help to retain as much of the natural tooth structure and strength as possible. During this lecture/hands-on participants will learn: • The full understanding on the use of lasers and learn to incorporate laser treatment protocols in endodontic dentistry. • Learn which wavelength will work best for your practice. • Type of delivery systems. • Learn how to increase case acceptance by offering a minimally invasive treatment option. • Discuss the integration of lasers and its benefits to your endodontic practice. • Operating costs vs
