Pre-congress course: Eighteeth: Real World Techniques for instrumentation and obturation.

In this presentation and workshop, Dr. Allen Ali Nasseh reviews some basic techniques for instrumentation and obturation using bioceramics in conjunction with either cold hydraulic condensation or warm vertical compaction. Topics of irrigation and instrument motion will also be discussed and demonstrated. A discussion on vital pulp therapy will be included. During the workshop, some of the mentioned instrumentation and obturation techniques will be demonstrated using plastic blocks. Participants are encouraged to bring a sterile, extracted teeth that are accessed and instrumented to a size 8 hand file (confirm patency) for a more realistic verification of the demonstrated techniques.

Objectives: Participants will learn about:

1. a simple instrumentation protocol in conjunction with bioceramic obturation

2. effective irrigation and disinfection protocols.

3. effective instrument motion to reduce the incidence of file separation.
