Virtual Hands-On Webinar: Clinical and radiographic considerations for the selection of our file system
07 Oct 2021, 20:00 Online Event | UAE Timezone (GST) Area of interest: General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Endodontics



Nowadays, we can find hundreds of mechanical systems to shape the root canals. New designs, alloys, motions and clinical techniques are available and it could produce confusion when we are facing a clinical case. Which system should I use or what are the characteristics I should be looking for?

Besides all these new instruments we can find in the market, in order to select our file system, we have to understand the physical behaviour of a file into the root canals. Understanding how the metallurgy affects the file’s behaviour is essential to select our system. When we analyze different file systems, many of them could have similar behaviour and this is because they have similar designs or similar alloys. Once the clinician understands the principles of endodontics metallurgy, it is possible to find the most suitable system. 

In addition, the clinical and radiographic evaluation of our clinical cases is pivotal before we place any file into the root canal system. Many times, we will anticipate challenges and difficulties before facing them, so, it will reduce the possibilities of iatrogenic errors. 

A virtual hands-on will be performed as well, to demonstrate all these characteristics and clinical techniques, reviewed during the presentation.

Learning objectives

  • To emphasize the importance of the identification of clinical challenges during the clinical and radiographic examination.
  • To demonstrate how metallurgy influences mechanical behaviour.
  • To be able to select the most suitable file system for the clinician needs and for specific anatomy.
