R2C™- The Root to Crown Solution
The Endodontic CE Solution from diagnosis through restoration
Each step of endodontically treating and restoring a tooth is connected. This course walks through each step of root canal therapy- with each building on the success of the previous phase. From diagnostic protocol through coronal restoration, learn techniques for clinical success at every step needed to take the patient out of pain, restore function to the tooth while maintaining the proper aesthetic, and enhance long term success.
- Diagnosis and Treatment Planning- a complete understanding of the factors of each case.
- Endodontic Access- Creating a proper access cavity is critical
- Antibacterial Dressings-Inter-appointment medicaments and temporizing teeth.
- Shaping Utilizing the Most Advanced File Technology Choices for imparting an appropriate shape to the canal.
- Irrigation-importance of removal of infection-causing bacteria
- Obturation- Pros and Cons of sealers and obturation techniques
- Coronal restoration of the Endodontically Treated Tooth Choosing between direct vs. indirect restoration.
While the principals remain unchanged, there are many new tools and techniques associated with non-surgical root canal therapy. Choosing among the numerous options can be overwhelming to many clinicians. In this hands-on session, the attendee will be provided with a definite roadmap towards successful navigation of creating a good glidepath, imparting an appropriate final shape to the canals, and then filling those cleaned and shaped canals in an efficient and effective manner. New motor technology will provide a unique opportunity to develop a more nuanced understanding of torque and its application on the instruments being employed. Reciprocating files with extraordinary metallurgical properties which can help the clinician achieve the desired goals will be featured. A companion gutta-percha-based solid-core technique will be utilized to round out the session.
After this course, the attendee will:
- Understand the basics of operating an iPad driven cordless motor
- Be able to follow a simplified sequence for creating a glide path and a final shape using advanced, reciprocating instruments.
- Be able to describe the process for imparting a 3-dimensional fill using a warm, gutta-percha carrier.
