The Theory:

  • Case planning and the conversation on prognosis including the use of advanced imaging (CBCT)
  • Modern concepts of conservative access cavity and canal preparation
  • The microscope in practice - discussed and showcased in an endo/general surgery and an overview on ergonomics
  • Locating the MB2
  • VDW Rotate instrumentation (a .04 taper system) to allow a focus on restoratively driven endodontics and the concept of dentine preservation
  • Reciproc Blue instrumentation
  • Gauging to determine apical diameter
  • The role of the apex locator
  • Modern irrigation concepts to tackle Biofilms and Smear Layer. Ultrasonic activation. Enhance techniques to allow single visit treatments
  • Advanced obturation techniques. Warm Vertical compaction
  • Energised ultrasonic obturation and GP cone- customisation
  • MTA plug and barrier techniques
  • Use of bioceramics
  • Retreatment considerations
  • Gutta-percha removal. Conventional GP and Thermafil removal
  • Post removal with piezons
  • Management of complexities of retreatment. The calcified canal and ledged canal
