2015 Endodontic courses



Rotary Endodontics 1: A Rotary Refresher - 21 March 2015

Course overview

This one day course is part one of a larger course comprised of 2.5 days. Part one is designed to provide an introduction (or a revision) to three well established rotary systems and will introduce you to, or refresh your knowledge of, these rotary methods of preparation. Additionally the course will go through the basics of sound endodontic practice as it applies to the use of rotary techniques.

The systems discussed will be the BioRace, M2 System and ProTaperNext,. After a morning of presentations the whole afternoon is devoted to practical exercises and demonstrations within in the University simulation clinic.

During the day we will refresh your memory on access cavities and the importance of straight line access, the necessity of isolation, the importance of medicaments and irrigation.

Participants will have ample time to use the systems within the University of Sydney Simulation clinic using both plastic blocks and extracted teeth. Please bring along at least four accessed multi-rooted teeth to make the most of this session.

Operating Microscope in Endodontic Practice - 9 and 10 April 2015

Course overview

This two-day course is designed for postgraduate endodontic students and other specialists who wish to enhance their use of the operating microscope. While the clinical exercises will demonstrate the use of the microscope in routine endodontic treatment, re-treatment and surgical endodontics, the skills learned will have broad application in other specialty areas.

Postgraduate endodontic students may be eligible for an educational grant from the Australian Society of Endodontology (Inc.) to attend the course. Postgraduate students should contact the ASE Councilor in their state for further details.

During both days of this course a team approach with the dental chair side assistant will be emphasized. Everyone will receive notes, a reading list and technical information about the microscopes. Each participant will have the opportunity to try different brands of microscopes to compare their features.

Convenor
  • Steven COHN, BA, DDS, Cert Endo, DABE, FADI, FICD, FPFA
Day One - Routine Endodontics and Re-treatment Cases

The enhanced magnification and illumination provided by the dental operating microscope can be applied to many clinical situations, ranging from the inspection of crown preparations to endodontic, periodontic and oral surgery procedures.

The microscope is particularly useful in endodontics for identifying cracks, finding calcified and additional canals, removing posts and broken instruments and repairing perforations. The first day of this course is designed to develop and enhance those microscopic skills. The subjects to be covered include:

  • Adjusting and par focaling the microscope
  • Access cavities, canal location, instrumentation and obturation exercises
  • The role of ultrasonics
  • Post removal exercises
  • Broken instrument removal exercises
  • Dentist, assistant and patient positioning for optimum results
  • Documentation and patient education
Day Two - Endodontic Microsurgery

This second day of this course will be devoted to all aspects of microsurgical endodontics. The program is a mixture of tutorials and hands-on practical exercises on extracted teeth and specially designed models for periapical surgery. All the exercises will be carried out using the microscope. The topics to be covered include:

  • Patient, dentist and assistant positioning for optimum effectiveness and comfort in the surgical environment
  • Effective utilization of the chair side assistants
  • Diagnosis and case selection
  • Anaesthesia and pain control
  • Flap design
  • Management of hard and soft tissues
  • Microsurgical instrument selection and usage
  • Ultrasonic root-end preparations
  • Root end filling techniques
  • Suturing choices and techniques
  • Management of post-operative symptoms
  • Documentation of surgical procedures

Rotary Endodontics 2: New Concepts and New Horizons - 17 and 18 April 2015

Course overview

This one and a half day course is part two of a larger course comprised of 2.5 days. Part two is designed to show how rotary systems can be used in more difficult cases (such as calcified canals and larger diameter canals) and will introduce you to newer rotary file systems which can be used in these clinical scenarios. Some time will also be spent on filling the larger diameter canal system with “hot” gutta percha. Following on from this you will be introduced to three reciprocating systems: Twisted FileAdaptive, Wave-one and Reciproc. The course has been updated to reflect the expanded use of MTA and its derivatives in the repair of procedural errors and in root filling.

Participants will have ample time to use the systems within the University of Sydney Simulation clinic using both plastic blocks and extracted teeth. Please bring along at least four accessed multi-rooted teeth to make the most of this session.

Course topics
  • Utilisation of controlled memory NiTi systems (Vortex Blue and Hyflex)
  • Basics of Reciproc
  • Basics of Wave-one
  • Basics of TwistedFileAdpative
  • Basics of BT-RaCe
  • Canal location and negotiation
  • Working in Calcified Canals
  • Matched obturation technique
  • Apex locators
  • Practical sessions with reciprocating systems and “hot” GP filling techniques
