Current Scientific Evidence in Endodontic Therapy
This course is designed for the dental clinician who desires to stay at the forefront of the latest scientific advancements, endodontic techniques and schools of thought. Discussion will include NiTi metallurgy and irrigation technologies that are cutting edge and changing endodontictherapy.
• The Science & Physics of Instrumentation: Advances in metallurgy and file engineering that address cyclic fatigue and file separation.
• Efficiency with Fewer Files: Design enhancements that deliver consistent canal shapes in less time and with fewer instruments.
• Energized Irrigation Protocols: New technologies and techniques for removing bacteria and the smear layer.
• Obturation: State of the art, centrally condensed gutta-percha technologies vs. single-cone techniques.
