This course is designed to give the skilled general practitioner the knowledge, materials and techniques to complete endodontic treatment to the highest possible standard and will be kept small to ensure a personalised experience for participants. 

Course Topics
  • Identifying the right tooth. Complex diagnostic scenarios: cracked teeth, myofascial pain and maxillary sinusitis.
  • An introduction to the new concept of “Minimally Invasive Endodontics” and an evidence-based evaluation of the risks and benefits of MIE. Techniques to employ in practice to extend the life of endodontically treated teeth.
  • A look at the latest advances in NiTi technology - beyond heat-treated NiTi. Focus on the best ways to use these new instruments. Learn to customise canal preparation specific to canal morphologies – one size and technique does not fit all – take your knowledge to the next level. Do you fracture instruments? Learn how to negotiate ledges, aggressive curvatures, S-bends whilst minimising the risks of fractures. Practical  session with EDM NiTi files.
  • A look at the technology and instruments available that can help with the identification and negotiation of MB2
  • Advances in obturation techniques and sealer technology – should you change your technique? Practical session of warm vertical compaction and obturating large canals.
  • What is the “new” ideal standard of care and how to maximise the benefit of a referral relationship.
  • Restoration of root-filled teeth. Are crowns always necessary? A look at recent literature about the use of posts in root-filled teeth and to assist in selecting the appropriate type of post.
A microscope will be available for participants to use. Participants are asked to provide extracted teeth with access cavities prepared.

Learning Objectives
  • Understanding the limitations and advantages minimally invasive endodontics and implementing “orifice directed access” in your practice.
  • Utilise the latest NiTi technology to achieve specific canal-appropriate instrumentation with reduced risk of iatrogenic errors.
  • Understand technology available to identify and manage MB2.
  • Ability to obturate with modern techniques and sealers.
  • Advanced knowledge of conservative restoration of root-filled teeth.
