NS-2 Preserving What Matters: New Technologies and Approaches to Dentin Conservation

5 (2 votes)

CE Credits: 1.5

Program Overview:

This course is designed for endodontists who want to incorporate the latest science-based treatment and enhance their knowledge of dentin conservation and restoring endodontically treated teeth.    Root canal treatment is a key way to save teeth that otherwise might have to be extracted. However, the impact of traditional RCT techniques can weaken teeth, leaving them susceptible to subsequent fracture. This course explores the implications of recent research into endodontic access and instrumentation. The attendee will learn how to conform to the natural morphology and disinfect the canal while retaining more dentin. These techniques allow the body a chance to heal itself, while at the same time lowering the risk of post-endodontic stress-related tooth fractures.  

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the need for retaining as much of the natural dentin as possible.
  • Discuss the application of an instrumentation technique designed to retain more natural dentin than traditional files and methods.
  • Experience state-of-the-art methods for delivering new sealers and gutta-percha with even greater heating and flow capabilities.
