Endo Non-surgical and 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 non surgical retreatment approaches and the aitiology of initial root canal treatment failure. To present an evidence based framework for the safe and effective disassembly of non obturation and obturation materials.
  • To understand the factors related to the long term outcome of non surgical endodontic retreatment and to develop a rational diagnostic and decision making framework. To appreciate the importance of magnification and illumination for the management of complicated non surgical retreatment cases.

Course Objectives

  • Delegates will be able to remove guttapercha obturations from root canals, remove Carrier based obturations from the root canals, remove paste obturations and remove fiber posts. Delegates will have the opportunity to use most of the current technology used during retreatment procedures.
  • Delegates will be able to bypass and remove broken endodontic files and understand all the preventive measures to avoid complications during endodontic instrumentation. The delegates will be able to repair a pulp floor perforation, to obtutrate an internal resorption defect and to perform apical plugs with biocompatible materials.
