SP-23 Single-File Reciprocating Systems: From Treatment to Retreatment—Is the Clinical Experience Supported by Literature?

Product not yet rated

CE Credits: 1.5

Course Description:   The single-file reciprocating systems are considered an important advancement in modern endodontics, owing to a predictable shaping ability and procedure simplification. Nevertheless, some aspects such as cleaning effectiveness, debris extrusion, micro-cracks development, glide path creation, instrument separation, effectiveness, and enhancement of irrigation must be evaluated in order to find relevant scientific evidence in literature. The aim of this lecture is to discuss the aforementioned aspects with respect to large clinical experience associated with current literature evaluation. Presenters will also describe recent techniques for treatment along with emphasizing the necessity of new procedures for irrigation considering the changing paradigm. In addition, they will aim to establish the usage of reciprocating in retreatment, thereby rendering this technique more effective, safer and with less need for solvent than the existing techniques.  

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of reciprocating systems according to literature and correlating to clinical cases performed.
  • Describe instrumentation techniques and clinical implications in irrigation systems, using both sonic and ultrasonic devices, and taking advantage of the new preparation concept.
  • Explain how the single-file reciprocating systems may help retreatment procedures, allowing fast and efficient gutta-percha removal.
