FKG pre-congress course: Moving forward to a new era in root canal therapy: Adaptive techniques for conservative treatment and retreatment.
SPEAKER: Professor Martin Trope
Success in endodontics requires maximal microbial control while maintaining the strength and thus survivability of the tooth. Round solid core files cannot touch the walls of non-round canals without substantially weakening the root. New adaptive instruments that can touch more canal surface area while leaving a thicker and stronger root are now available. These instruments are easy to use and are cost effective since one instrument can adapt to more than one canal shape and save significant amount of time. In this hands-on program the important differences between these instruments will be explained and demonstrated. Small but critical practical changes that the practitioner must master will be demonstrated and practiced in the workshop for both primary and retreatment. Finally a new passive obturation technique that completes this new philosophy will be shown. The hands on program aims to convince the participant of the benefits of the new approach from a biologic and clinical point of view. At the end of the hands-on program the participant will
1. Understand the limitations of solid core round files
2. Understand how the new adaptive instruments solve most of the problems of the older solid core files
3. Appreciate the subtle differences in using these new instruments compared to the older technologies
4. Appreciate the ease and benefits of passive sealer based obturation.
