Endo Micro Surgical Retreatment (Management of Endodontic Failure)

Course Structure

This course consists of three parts - two half-day theory and one full-day hands-on training:

  • The theory (approx. 3-4 hours) will be delivered to the delegates Online.
  • The hands-on training (full-day) will be delivered face-to-face in the autumn of 2020 (date to be announced).

Course Aims

  • To understand the rational behind micro surgical retreatment approaches and acquire basic surgical knowledge.
  • To understand the importance of magnification in endodontic microsurgery and acquire basic microsurgical skills.

Course Objectives

  • Outcomes of endodontic microsurgery vs traditional apicectomy.
  • The science behind effective local anaesthesia in endodontic microsurgery.
  • The use of a dental operating microscope in endodontic microsurgery.
  • Flap design and tissue handling to improve post-surgical healing.
  • How to effectively prepare an osteotomy.
  • Correct methods of ultrasonic root-end preparation and how to identify anatomical markers.
  • Which equipment is appropriate for use in micro-surgical techniques.
  • Effective suturing and postoperative care including analgesia.
  • Been calibrated to a dental operating microscope.
  • Have identified cases where surgical intervention is appropriate.
  • Have raised a flap with microsurgical instruments.
  • Created an osteotomy and identified anatomical markers.
  • Performed root end resection and retrograde preparation of the root canal space.
  • Performed microsurgical suturing.
  • Developed a post-operative care strategy to minimize complications and improve healing.
