Course Description:

Clinic endodontics, both non-surgical and surgical has seen a dramatic growth over the last two decades.  The armamentarium for endodontics and number of different nickel-titanium rotary file systems has been hard to keep up with.  Is one better than the other, are some systems better suited for a particular anatomy?  This course will take an in depth look at most if not all of the different file systems on the market today.  We will also attempt to cover different irrigation and obturation systems available.

This course will start off with a review of diagnosis and clinical testing.  We will examine endodontic anatomy and case selection.  The course will place an emphasis on performing predictable endodontic therapy using systems and material that will enhance endodontic results.  During the course, practitioners will be introduced to new techniques and the equipment available to assist them with their endodontic treatments.  The course will be a combination of lectures and hands on clinical training and workshops.  The morning sessions will be mostly lecture and discussion.  The afternoon sessions will be geared toward giving the practitioners the opportunity to work with the varied endodontic systems and have the experience of performing a non-surgical endodontic treatment on a live patient.
