Root Canal Obturation: Changing Philosophy?
Recorded On: 06/03/2020
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’s 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.
