Topics to be covered
The what, how, why and when of apex locators as it relates to endodontic success! - Dr Matt Filei
The aim is to give the clinician clear steps in how to improve accuracy of Working Length Calculation. The influence of the Length of Root-filling as it relates to success will be discussed. Electronic apex locators such as Dentaport ZX improve endodontic outcomes by improving accuracy of working length determination. Many of the clinical challenges facing the practitioner doing endodontics can be met once accurate canal length is determined.
Obturation-GP, heat and MTA - Dr Jeff Ward
The goal of obtuation is to eliminate all avenues of leakage from the oral cavity or periapical tissue into the root canal system and to seal within the root canal system any irritants that cannot be removed during the preparation and irrigation procedures. The ability to achieve the best seal possible is essential to endodontic success and this presentation will discuss the use of Gutta-percha, heat and MTA to achieve this.
Improving clinical outcomes through sound risk management - some keys to successful and enjoyable endodontics - Dr John McNamara
The presentation will address some recent statistics on litigation here and overseas, and how good clinical and practice management protocols, and ethical decision making will make for a more enjoyable and successful practice of endodontics.
Endodontic diagnosis & treatment in 3D - Dr David Figdor
Over the last 2 decades, there have been a few technological advances that have really enhanced endodontic diagnosis and treatment. The operating microscope provides superior magnification and illumination, which improves treatment ability by enhancing direct vision. With the advent of high resolution Cone Beam CT, there is now the possibility to dramatically aid radiographic visualisation, providing accurate discrimination of anatomical structures in 3 dimensions for detailed pre-operative diagnosis and treatment planning. This technology has many applications, e.g. assessment of undisclosed periapical pathology, root canal anatomy, resorption, root fractures etc. and these will be illustrated using clinical case-based examples.
Predictability in endodontic preparation – it’s what we all want - Dr Ian Trantor
Whether a first time user or experienced clinician our aim should be an ‘Expert at the Basics’. Understand rotary NiTi techniques; Be aware of the limits of materials; Stay in control; Refine technique to individual cases – How big apically? How much taper?; Be aware of advances ; The aim of this presentation is to refresh and update.
Question and answer Session
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of all the speakers during the Question and Answer session which will be moderated by Dr Steven Cohn.
Practical demonstrations and workshops
This course will include table clinics presented by the speakers demonstrating clinical techniques and hints that delegates can immediately use in their practices to provide better endodontic treatment.
