NS-4 Management of Severe Curvatures and Complex Anatomy: A New Approach

4.9 (10 votes)

CE Hours: 1.5

Course Description: 

The root canal system is often a highly-complicated network of multiplanar curvatures and anastomoses. Reaching the biological and design objectives of instrumentation in severely curved canals, deep apical splits and complicated canal systems can be an extremely challenging aspect of root canal treatment. Dr. Antonis will introduce a novel instrumentation approach called tactile controlled activation (TCA) technique for the predictable and safe enlargement of extremely challenging root canal systems.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

  • Describe the design and biological objectives of canal instrumentation.
  • Explain the anatomical complexity of the root canal systems.
  • Classify the minimum instrumentation requirements for effective disinfection of challenging cases with the new approach.
