Lecture and Hands- On Program
General Knowledge Suggested

Since the introduction of Nickel Titanium Rotary Instrumentation to endodontics, we have learned much about the clinical strengths and limitations of these great instruments. With recent improvements in metallurgy, enhanced designs, and innovative rotary file motions, we need to understand how these changes affect clinical instrumentation. Furthermore, we must take advantage of these improvements to create an instrumentation protocol that combines Safety with Simplicity! In this lecture/hands-on session, a new “Blended Technique” will be introduced that will result in safe, efficient instrumentation for all root canal types. Get ready to improve your instrumentation predictability while dramatically reducing instrument separation, ledging and transportation. You will use the new blended technique with the goal of improving instrumentation predictability and success. Furthermore, a simple yet effective method will be introduced that combines the latest material science with endodontic synchronicity for a passive bonded root canal obturation.

At the conclusion of this lecture hands-on session, participants will:

1. Learn how rotary file design features influence instrumentation safety and efficiency.

2. Discover effective instrument motions available for shaping root canals, their advantages and limitations.

3. Recognize that successful endodontics can be accomplished in both, a safe and simple manner by combining new technology with long established,    evidence based endodontic principles.

4. Understand the need to utilize piezoelectric ultrasonics in both access and three-dimensional irrigation.

5. Fully appreciate the benefits of bioceramic obturation and how to fit matching posts to the precise taper of the instrumented canal shape.


6. Each attendee will practice advanced canal shaping, synchronized bonded obturation and drill-less post placement using the latest in instrumentation techniques and material science
