Increased Success Through Restorative Endodontics: A Lecture & Hands-on Workshop

Increased Success Through Restorative Endodontics: A Lecture & Hands-on Workshop

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Would you like to learn how to perform endodontics in a predictable, reproducible manner that enhances the long-term prognosis of the tooth?

Spend a day at the University of Minnesota with our guest instructor, Dr. Alex Fleury, learning about the latest developments in endodontics and the opportunity to experience them first hand. During the morning lecture session, you will receive evidence-based updates on: access preparation, cleaning and shaping based on anatomical principles, and obturation and root repair using bioceramic materials. Clinical cases will be discussed in detail that will demonstrate both basic and advanced instrumentation and obturation techniques, as well as some technique variations to handle challenging cases. The afternoon hands-on session will give you practical experience with new three-dimensional endodontic instrumentation and obturation techniques.

Benefits/Objectives

Through illustrated lectures and hands-on experience, you will learn to:

  • describe the foundations of endodontic success.
  • explain the concept of anatomic shaping.
  • triage basic and advanced cases and apply the correct instrumentation for each case.
  • apply two different instrumentation techniques for managing different canal anatomies (conventional and 3D).
  • recognize the benefits of sealer based obturation using bioceramics.
  • identify the various applications of ultrasonics.
  • utilize integrated apex locator handpiece technology.
  • place posts using a matching post and core system.

This continuing dental education course is supported by Real World Endo®. Material support provided by Brasseler USA. 

Who Should Attend

Dentists who want to incorporate into their practice “restorative endodontic” techniques that enhance the long term biomechanical success of endodontically treated teeth.

Educational Methods

Illustrated lectures, discussion, demonstrations and laboratory exercises.

Equipment and Supplies

You will need to bring to the course: 1) loupes/safety glasses, and 2) 2-3 extracted teeth with ideal access prepared. In addition, please bring a file sample from your current rotary system to compare to ESX, a new instrumentation and obturation system that will be introduced during the hands-on session (a size 35 is ideal). All other equipment and supplies will be provided by Brasseler U.S.A. and the School of Dentistry.
