Hands-on / Online
30 Oct 2020, 09:00 - 18:00 Online Event Area of interest: Endodontics

Learning Objectives

  1. Understanding the complexity, the of root-canal system
  2. strategies using latest endodontic instrumentation techniques to achieve the biologic goals 
  3. Minimum instrumentation and disinfection protocol
  4. Appreciate the subtle differences in using these new instruments compared to the older technologies
  5. Discuss the causes of endodontic treatment failures and non-surgical retreatment
  6. Appreciate the ease and benefits of passive sealer based obturation. Discuss the aim of obturation and cold hydraulic obturation technique


Success in endodontics requires maximal microbial control while maintaining the strength and thus survivability of the tooth. Greater taper files cannot maintain the anatomy of the canals due to less flexibility and also substantially weakens the root. Maximal success for both these objectives can be achieved by thorough disinfection of the root canal without any unnecessary removal of dentin and followed by sealing of the root canal and the coronal space.

The internal anatomy of human teeth is highly complicated and consists of a network of curved, anastomotic canals, as seen in studies of the root canal anatomy. Navigating efficiently, safely and predictably through this network has been a subject of research over the years. For the past few years, great emphasis has been placed on the minimum instrumentation requirements in order to achieve effective disinfection, especially when it comes to highly curved or anastomotic canal systems.
