DAY 1 - To understand the rational behind micro surgical retreatment approaches and acquire basic surgical knowledge.
DAY 2 - To understand the importance of magnification in endodontic microsurgery and acquire basic microsurgical skills.
DAY 1 - By the end of the course delegates will understand:
- 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 microsurgical techniques.
- Effective suturing and postoperative care including analgesia.
DAY 2 - By the end of the course delegates will have:
- 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.
