“The Root of the Problem: Access to Obturation” Hands-on Presentation
This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by Dentsply Sirona Endodontics
Endodontic success is dependent on a variety of interrelated factors, but removal of bacteria from the root canal system is the ultimate goal. It is imperative that all canals are located and cleaned to the root apex to achieve maximum disinfection and clinical success. This session will place special emphasis on locating the hard to find canals prior to using a mechanical instrument to establish a predictable and reproducible glide path to the root apex. An evidence based review of cutting edge instrumentation options will be presented with special emphasis on different instrument designs and mechanical movements. Lastly, enhanced irrigation protocols will be explored along with state of the art obturation techniques.
To integrate clinically relevant strategies for locating common root canal anatomies and provide tips for identifying hard to find canals.
To discuss how anatomical complexities within the root canal system impact endodontic treatment and outcomes.
To understand how to create an enhanced glide path with mechanical instruments and the final canal shape with a single file reciprocating instrument.
To realize the benefits of an enhanced irrigation protocol and the importance of a dense three-dimensional obturation.
