Problem-solving Essentials in Endodontics (Lecture and Hands-On Workshop) Presented by: Bernice Ko, DDS
This one-day hands-on course is designed for general dentists and endodontists to gain expertise and confidence with completing the highest quality endodontics on both vital and necrotic teeth. Participants will learn advanced NiTi rotary reciprocation instrumentation using Adaptive Motion Technology, predictable irrigation protocols using Apical Negative Pressure, and warm vertical obturation using the Continuous Wave technique. Other topics will include diagnosis, location of calcified canals, creation of a glide path, determination of working length, and location of the MB2. This exciting multi-media program highlights solutions and suggestions on how to treat straightforward and complex endodontic cases. This hands-on workshop utilizes state-of-the-art 3-D printed teeth, is designed to enhance clinicians’ practical skills.
- assess protocol for single-visit treatment of both vital and necrotic teeth;
- differentiate removal of the smear layer and biofilm using state of the art irrigation protocols; and
- demonstrate obturation of the root canal system in 3-D to capture the natural anatomy with the continuous wave of condensation.
