Root canal obturation is a critical step in non-surgical root canal treatment.  However, the materials and techniques used in obturation have remained relatively stagnant until recently. With the introduction of newer materials and a trend of a more conservative access canal preparation, new opportunities and challenges began to emerge in obturation. This presentation is designed to discuss the emerging obturation concepts, materials and techniques; provide evidence-based clinical guidance for endodontists to meet today‚Äôs challenges in root canal obtuation and achieve a more predictable treatment outcome.   

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to: 

  • Review the principles, history and the current status of root canal obturation.
  • Discuss the properties and clinical applications of new obturation materials.
  • Review in vitro and clinical evidence on various obturation methods.
